The Language of Leadership
How to Communicate and Foster Excellence as a Leader
If leadership is a language, how well do you speak it? Every organization, every society, every nation is always in need of great leadership. You could be that leader! In this workshop, Accredited Speaker Dr. Dilip Abayasekara, a past international President of Toastmasters International (the world’s leading volunteer organization for developing communication and leadership skills), will lead us to discover the vital elements of the language of leadership. We will answer fundamental questions about what leadership is and how management and leadership are different but vital for organizational success. You will be introduced to Dr. Dilip’s model for organizational success and eight practices for aligning and empowering people. Find out how well you do in those eight practices by doing a self-assessment. You will leave the workshop with specific ideas on what you can do to make a positive impact at home, work place and elsewhere because you speak and live the language of leadership!
