Part of management’s job is setting a vision for the organization. But unfortunately, while most leaders and managers have some idea for what they want the future to look like, they have very little idea how to communicate that vision. That’s what this course will help you do. You’ll learn how to get your audience to pay attention to your vision, understand it, believe it, and act on it. You’ll even learn what to do if you don’t agree with the vision you’ve been asked to deploy. It’s another course in bestselling author Paul Smith’s Fireside Chat series where you get to learn from the hard-won wisdom of experienced professionals drawn from interviews Paul conducted with hundreds of CEOs and executives at dozens of companies around the world.
