About

As your responsibilities grow, your communication skills can help you succeed—or hold you back. In any business role or function, you must be able to convey your ideas in ways that drive effective decision making, teamwork, and action. You can study a two day Leadership Communications program at Harvard University.

Exploring several communication types, this program will help you become more persuasive in written and oral communications in a range of settings. From one-on-ones to large groups, and from informal to formal formats, you will return to your role/organization a more confident communicator with a solid understanding of why and how to shift between communication types.

Through experiential exercises and small group activities, you will put these techniques into practice, test out new approaches, and learn to communicate with poise, clarity, and conviction. You’ll leave the program with the skills needed to engage, inform, and inspire others—and improve your ability to communicate like a leader.
