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.
RSM Executive Education’s women in business programmes are offered in partnership with the Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO). ECWO is committed to women’s continued advancement into leadership positions by contributing to management education and actively engaging in the gender debate.
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
During Communication with Power and Impact for Women you will learn from Dorothy Grandia. Occasionally we may substitute other faculty members according to the content of the programme and their availability.
Dorothy Grandia is assistant director of the Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO) at RSM, and media director for the Energy Economics Institute at the University of Cologne. She also coaches and teaches communication courses at RSM and INSEAD. Working mostly in STEM industry contexts, Dorothy specialises in persuasive communication, particularly communication strategies to improve communication between (technical) specialists, cross-functional peers and general management. She worked in journalism and politics in the USA. She has an MA in vocal performance from the New School University/Mannes College of Music, and a BA in Asian studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
