Imagine that every time you speak, people perceive you as a confident and authoritative leader. Wouldn't it be nice to know that you can speak in a confident manner and in a way that is instantly understandable and memorable to your audience?
In this How to Speak Like a Leader course you will learn the following:
*How to avid the most common speaking blunders that undermine authority
*How to increase eye contact with your audience
*How to structure your presentation so that you don't seem like a mid-level bureaucrat
*How to prepare in the least amount of time possible
This course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.
