The Language of Leadership is a new way to train your organisation, your team and yourself to become the leader you want to be. We’ve created a customised platform that provides practical and experiential training and video micro lessons to help you incrementally improve your communication and leadership skills. We will send you daily video micro lessons which explore in-depth communication themes followed by interactive exercises designed to put your learning into practice.

Your competency and confidence will develop over the six month programme as you learn to implement strategic layered communication techniques and practices transforming those who communicate by “default” to people who actively and intentionally communicate by ‘design’. Your responses are available throughout the programme so you can review your progress and development as it evolves over time.
