Reversed Pyramid: Unleash your leadership impact

Briefing Top Communication

Do you present in front of the board? Are you sitting on the podium at the industry congress? Do you have bad news for the team? Are you facing an interview where a lot can go wrong, a board meeting or a dinner speech? The “Executive Modus Briefing” puts you in the state that makes leadership impact possible.

How can we develop leadership effectiveness? The “Executive Modus Briefing” gives the answer: 12 steps that top managers can use to get themselves into an impact mode. “Executive Modus” is a mindset with access and more rhetorical altitude: 2.5 million screws were needed to build the Eiffel Tower, 21 charts fill the strategy meeting presentation, the house stands on seven pillars. The details may be interesting, but only the view from above has a personal impact.

The second focal point is linguistic pointing. This is about training good composition. We deal here daily with pyramids of boxes – whereas persuasive statements are more like funnels. Stefan Wachtel’s book on this is “Das Zielsatz-Prinzip”.

An offsite workshop whose participation will revolutionise your executive communication.
