Good leaders are good communicators. They are not just effective and efficient at what they do, they use a range of communication styles to gain resources, attract support, resolve conflicts. Developing this range of styles – skills you can use in an increasing variety of contexts and work relationships – is essential if you want to increase power and impact.

Testimonials

Read what previous participants say about this programme

RSM was the right answer in my search for a leading business school embracing female leadership and communication. The programme was a fantastic experience, triggering great energy and motivating power. It was about us, a very diverse group of women with the ambition to be heard. I learned how easy powerful speaking can be when applying the rules, and the importance of engagement and empathy. The programme will allow for effective communication: articulating clear and strong messages, communicating strategies and approaches in challenging circumstances, and building strong stakeholder relations
