How to Speak Like a Leader with Alyson Connoly

1. Fundamentals of Persuasive Public Speaking for Leadership

A persuasive leader helps people move toward a belief that they currently don’t hold.

They do this by being clear in their message but at the same time, openminded and willing to hear others’ opinions. In a safe environment they invite debate, ask questions that provoke conversation, and create positive outcomes.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to match your tone to the group, communicate your passion for what you are speaking about, and the power of nonverbal communication.
  • How body language helps to make you look and feel like a leader.
  • How eye contact gives you more confidence and helps in communicating with the people you need to persuade.
  • How to feel in control when you are being questioned.
  • How to eliminate anxiety and keep the Fight, Flight or Freeze Response in check by quieting your mind, breathing, and visualization.

2. Branding Yourself Beyond Academia

In this workshop, we will introduce you to tools to develop your personal brand to develop your capacity to market your skills beyond the academic job market. You will engage in activities to help discover your unique professional identity and how you can use your academic knowledge and training to set yourself apart from other applicants.

Through a series of exercises and storytelling fundamentals, you will learn:

  • How to define yourself and your line of work
  • How to translate your academic training and experience into accessible and relevant language
  • What your X factor is--and how to sell it

3. Elevating Your Elevator Pitch

This workshop is the culmination of the previous two workshops. Prior to the workshop, you will be given instructions on how to write an Elevator Pitch based on your personal brand. Each participant will present their pitch and Alyson will coach each participant individually.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • What goes into crafting an Elevator Pitch
  • How to write and present a clear Elevator Pitch
  • How to tailor it to fit different audiences
  • How to recover when you are interrupted, distracted, or make a mistake
