Communication with Power and Impact for Women
Communication with Power and Impact for Women
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.
By participating in this programme, you will:
- overcome fear of public speaking
- craft effective messages
- evaluate your stakeholders to customise your communications strategy
- align body posture, tone of voice, and content to your intended communication aims
- use the best language for encouraging participation and contribution of ideas or for directing a discussion toward a decision
- develop presentations which persuade, not just inform.
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.
The programme Communications with Power and Impact for Women brings together a dynamic group of women who have the potential to take on more senior roles in their organisations. Participants will come from a variety of organisations, including public and private companies and non-profit organisations, and from various levels of management.
“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.”
