The speed and complexity of change in organizations is increasing with alarming intensity. However endless qualifications, new vision, plans and processes alone can not deliver success. Change can be a complex psychological, interpersonal, inter-group dynamic process and often the mouthpiece of the organisation finds difficulty in transmitting the passion and enthusiasm to generate buy-in from colleagues, clients and customers.
According to research by the Harvard Business School, the number one attribute that will lead you to the top of any profession, is the ability to speak passionately, persuasively and professionally, especially in public. Undoubtedly those individuals who can communicate with impact and win others over to their ideas, and way of thinking, are the ones who will enjoy the best careers, rewards and relationships.
