Learning Tree Introduces New Course – Developing Your Leadership Voice: Achieving Presence and Impact

RESTON, VA (January 5, 2011)
Learning Tree International (NASDAQ NGM: LTRE) has announced the introduction of a new course entitled Developing Your Leadership Voice: Achieving Presence and Impact. Effective leaders build credibility and trust that encourage others to follow their lead. They do this with authentic communication, conveying a consistent view of who they are, what they stand for and what they want. In this three-day course, with guidance from our expert instructors, attendees develop an authentic leadership voice and the confidence to lead in daily situations and during difficult conversations.

This course provides the hands-on skills attendees can use to create and apply their own personalized communication style. Students will learn how to:

  • Apply an outcome-focused communications model to become more strategic in the approach to leadership communications
  • Build trust and foster the engagement of others by being consistent and explicit with a leadership voice
  • Gain the buy-in of others and motivate them to achieve desired outcomes
  • Create a clear vision and objectives to sustain employees during difficult situations
  • Practice self-presentation tactics for a variety of communication situations, including vocal, listening, emotional intelligence, nonverbal and others

"Anyone can create a vision or have ideas for improving situations, but without the ability to resonate with people and generate the buy-in of others, progress can be difficult," explained Jennifer Urick, Vice President of Product Development for Learning Tree International. “This course delivers the tools to help our students communicate clearly, consistently and with authenticity."

Attendees have three ways to attend this course:

1. Learning Tree will begin presenting Developing Your Leadership Voice at its Education Centers in January 2011.
