When you view communication as a process, lean principles can be used to add value to your end customer with minimum waste.

  • Add value – Focus on needs and wants
  • Eliminate waste – Eliminate clutter, confusion and time
  • Organize – Prepare and organize your thoughts
  • Make work visible – Surface your arguments
  • Be responsive – Apply “just in time” communication

Your “leadership moment”…the all-important presentation to your own senior executives which will determine the success of your project and the trajectory of your career. Are you ready for it?

The Persuasive Executive focuses on internal presentations to senior level managers. It is recommended for anyone who needs to get critical proposals approved internally or who wants to enhance their personal credibility as an aid to career success.

Strategic Sales Presentations
