How effective are your team leaders?

Businesses are only as strong as their weakest members. That’s why leadership is so important. Leaders know how to bring out the best in people and ensure everybody moves forward in harmony and with purpose. Effective leadership means strong communication skills, bags of confidence and emotional intelligence.

What do you have to gain?

Imagine

  • Improved productivity
  • Elevated team morale
  • Maximised sales performance
  • A highly motivated team

These are just a few of the benefits of engaged leadership.

Do you want leaders that dish out instructions or leaders that have the power to inspire, encourage and transform people?

This kind of leadership starts and ends with confidence and self-awareness. The greatest leaders are authentic and have the communication skills to motivate and inspire others.

What else does leadership mean?

  • Business agility – a team that is primed to evolve and succeed
  • Client retention – better relationships with clients
  • Lower costs – better relationships with suppliers
  • A happy team – Better relationships between colleagues and increased productivity

All this equates to a stronger, healthier business that runs like a well oiled machine.

Turbocharge your leaders

The “iCan Speak” Bootcamp is a one day workshop that will give your team leaders and team members the knowledge, skills and experience to deliver powerful and breathtaking presentations.

They will gain the confidence and experience to:

  • Communicate authentically – be the best version of themselves
  • Engage their audience – lead a team, persuade the board, negotiate with suppliers
  • Speak with authority and passion – inject enthusiasm into their presentation
  • Master the art of public speaking – an essential aspect of leadership

 

Over the years of helping thousands of people to overcome fear and shine in confidence, we have developed lots of tools and techniques to improve performance. Whether your leaders are fresh and inexperienced or seasoned managers, they will benefit from the “iCan Speak” Bootcamp.

Give your leaders the tools for success

The training at the “iCan Speak” Bootcamp is hands on. We will show your team leaders and other employees the practical techniques they need to know. Then I will give them the opportunity to practice what they have learned while receiving on the spot coaching to help them perform better.
They will learn:

  • Stage presence – how to stand, where to stand and body language, including hand movement and eye contact
  • Instant impact – plan an introduction that makes an immediate impression, and learn the language and delivery techniques that make them stand out
  • Vocal tone – understand how to control their voice to engage more effectively with their audience
  • Bring it all together – their chance to demonstrate all the skills and techniques they have learned with a short presentation to the group

Since we started running the iCan Speak Bootcamp we have worked with many businesses to improve the communication of their teams. But it doesn’t stop there. Due to the nature of the training and because of our unique approach organisations  often book multiple days with large numbers of staff.

James Latham PLC invited “iCan Speak” to work with some of the leadership team. So great was the added team bonding within the sessions that they ended up booking over 100 of their team through the process.

National Merchant Buying Group (NMBS) decided after having the sales team go through the “iCan Speak” training to then put every single member of staff though the process.

Case study

Back on July 2015 I attended Richards day workshop to help with my public speaking skills, I consider myself very confident but this was just one area I seriously struggled… I made a promise to myself before attending to volunteer first for everything, that way it was over and done with and I couldn’t compare myself to others. So the day arrived, I was more nervous than you can ever imagine but this was quickly softened by Richard. The day progressed really quickly and by the end of it I was almost sad it was over. I had originally attended to help me with my own network marketing business however the following week my husband asked if I’d do a pitch for his business for him (his sales director was on holiday and we’d been approached by a huge national company to pitch for their work) .. I reluctantly agreed. It was the best thing that could have happened, throwing myself in at the deep end so quickly after the course meant I’d remembered all the skills I’d learnt, I still use some to this day. My confidence was brimming, I attended the meeting with the absolute belief the client was ours. I say in reception and got chatting to the receptionist who told me I was the fifth that day, I had no intention of letting that impact my positivity. So the time came, if I do say so myself my presentation was excellent, it was informative, interesting and I delivered it with absolute passion. Needless to say we won the contract and in the two years we’ve working with them we’ve now invoices in excess of £500,000. My honest advice, if you are nervous or uncomfortable in any way with public speaking this course may just change your life, not only did I win that contract but I’ve gone on to talk on many occasions within my own business environment, and the more you do this the easier it gets.
