Class Description


What you'll learn in this communications course:

Feel empowered when called upon to “stand and deliver” in spontaneous moments

Who Should Attend:

All business professionals at any point in their careers who need to develop and improve their in-the-moment communication capabilities and confidence.

It’s happened to all of us—you’re asked unexpectedly during a meeting to give a project update, or are stopped in the hallway with an important question, or are cornered in a challenging conversation. You can’t plan for these unrehearsed events, but you can take steps to always be confident and ready when they do happen.

Now you can apply preemptive and in-the-moment strategies to excel when communicating in unscripted situations. You’ll learn strategies for managing emotional and physiological responses, along with mental templates to guide and frame your responses. Then you’ll practice five workplace situations where you must effectively meet immediate communication demands. Beyond these hands-on activities, you’ll also receive peer and leader feedback plus insights from a video session that will help you recognize and improve your nonverbal delivery behaviors.

How you will benefit:

  • Manage stress in difficult impromptu interactions
  • Organize and frame responses using mental templates
  • Develop behaviors that convey professionalism
  • Assess your professional strengths and opportunities when communicating in the moment
  • Apply preemptive mindfulness to bring out your best self
  • Employ listener analysis to frame messages
  • Use in-the-moment strategies to organize your thinking

  • Starting strong: preemptive emotional/physical tools for stress management
  • Learning tools and strategies for rapid communication
  • Applying nonverbal behaviors that exude confidence and competence
  • Applying new in-the-moment mental templates
  • Identifying stalling techniques that don’t erode credibility
