Executive Communication

Leaders need to be able to sell others on their decisions, and that can be hard when you’ve got a lot of data to convey. You’ll learn to apply the psychology of persuasion and the principles of storytelling to be more effective communicators in the Smith Executive Communication Program. The intensive one-year program includes workshops, one-on-one coaching and the creation of a personalized development plan to improve your verbal, nonverbal and visual presentation skills, and develop your cross-cultural intelligence.
