Bart Egnal, President and Chief Executive Officer at The Humphrey Groupwill speak about concrete, practical advice on how to speak as a leader by choosing words that resonate with your audience.
Leveraging. Strategizing. Opening the kimono. Unlocking human capital. Trying to nail that BHAG. All on a go forward basis. Jargon-ridden language is too often the mainstay of business communication. It frustrates, confuses, and generally alienates listeners. Yet using it can often seem like a mandatory requirement for anyone who wants to establish credibility in a professional workplace.
This presentation will explore ideas such as the concept of jargon; how to use “business speak”; how to be intentional about communicating as a leader; and how to choose words that influence and inspire.
