Communication training for executives, managers, and entrepreneurs.

"We don't have any communication problems around here."

Have you ever heard that statement in your organization? Probably not. Communication failures are far too common and familiar.

Through quality communication training you can reduce the frequency and the adverse impact of communication failures. And with enhanced communication, your organization becomes more responsive, innovative, and effective.

Using certified business communication trainers, Strategic Leadership Development International provides training, coaching, and consulting in one-on-one and group communication, presentation skills, and written communication.

Please Note: We do not currently host open-enrollment trainings for the general public. Our trainings are all individually designed for the leaders of a specific business, nonprofit, or government entity and are delivered in-house or as part of an off-site event.

Interpersonal Communication — Make It Powerful and Persuasive

We are regularly asked to assist companies with communication training in the following areas.

►  Building a Commanding Presence as a Communicator

Why do some presenters and speakers seem to hold listeners and audiences in rapt attention effortlessly, while others leave the groups restless and disengaged? Effective communicators always provide quality content, presented with clarity and simplicity and laid out to be easily followed. Of no less importance, they make artful use of techniques, rapport-building, body language, gestures, tempo, and tonality that engage their hearers and maintain involvement. Our business communication training addresses both high-impact presentation of content and skillful delivery of verbal and non-verbal messages. We provide communication training in one-on-one settings or in small group settings.

►  Masterful One-On-One Communication

Persuasive one-on-one communication is a hallmark of all great leaders. Our business communication trainers will help you maximize the impact of your face-to-face conversation skills. Our training also emphasizes personal persuasiveness in small-group meetings, committees, and telephone conversations.

►  Using PowerPoint and Multi-Media Effectively

Poor use of PowerPoint and other presentation media has created a backlash in corporate circles. Properly utilized, however, these media add powerfully to the impact of business communication. We provide training specifically designed to help presenters lay out their visual materials more artfully and to utilize them in ways that engage an audience more fully.

►  Enhanced Platform Skills for Speakers

Senior managers and executives are frequently asked to speak at professional meetings, before civic groups, or at industry conferences. Their professionalism on the platform has immediate impact on the audience's perception of the company they represent. We provide platform skills training to leave a lasting, positive impression every time you speak. Our training draws on Dr. Mike Armour's 40 years as a professional speaker, appearing before audiences around the globe.
