  • How credible are your people when they walk into the C-suite with executive decision makers?
  • Can your people think on their feet under pressure to respond to challenging questions?
  • Does your team tend to “get down in the weeds” when making presentations?
  • Do your people lack “the finishing touches” to interact with confidence with executive clients?
  • Are your technical professionals putting people to sleep with boring presentations?
  • Is the messaging all wrong for your audience?
  • Should your senior leaders learn to TELL stories rather than narrate them?

In this interactive program, participants learn how to avoid the 8 most common mistakes that keep professionals from communicating clearly and persuasively—and how to correct them. They’ll identify concrete characteristics that set leaders apart as influencers among executive groups.

Drawing concepts from her consulting practice, research, and bestselling books, Dianna will help participants gain visibility as clear thinkers and credible spokespeople in their organizations or industry.

  •  Think on their feet in high-pressure situations, using the LEAD Format.
  • Respond to tough questions with credibility and confidence.
  • Structure a message that meets the needs of executives.
  • Engage audiences with a dynamic delivery style that supports rather than sabotages their message.
