Session 4: Effective Communication

Session Description:

How do you craft a compelling shared vision, articulate it persuasively, and engage people to join you in realizing it? Beginning with active listening, we will examine the power of stories and how we tell, hear, elicit, validate, and suppress them. The power of reframing and vulnerabilities to persuasion will be discussed, as well as how to use narrative to create effective presentations and meetings.

  •  Recognize legitimate and illegitimate acts of persuasion. 
  •  Understanding the psychology of persuasion, narratives and alignment.
  •  Utilize narratives to motivate and align and improve presentation and meeting skills.
