How to Speak Like a Leader

How to speak like a leader. Leadership communication skills often boil down to four key differences when compared to the average person. FREE 7 Instant Tips for Confident & Composed Public Speaking


How leaders communicate:

1. Leaders speak concisely. They figure out what the heart of their message and leaders talk clearly and concisely. Developing good leadership communication skills means getting right to the point. This is the key to most executive-level communication. Leadership communication skills often boil down to conciseness.

2. Leaders can speak outside of their own area of expertise about the value of other areas of the organization. In contrast, individual contributors often get entrenched in their own personal background of knowledge (e.g., IT, engineering, etc.). Leaders understand and can speak about the value of all of those different areas. This is most noticeable in groups. A key group leadership skill is speaking outside of your expertise background. Good leadership communication skills mean moving beyond self-advocacy and speaking about other areas more fluently.

3. Leaders speak a level above individual team concerns. How leaders communicate differently is also by focusing on the coordination and strategy between and among teams to help groups work toward common goals.

4. Leaders can speak about virtually every task to the overall goals of the business, the overarching priorities of the entire organization. Leaders communicate this way (a) because they think this way, and (b) because their communication matches their priorities. As a result, others hear them and say, Oh, yeah. That's how we work toward this goal. Again, this often comes out in group settings. When it comes to group leadership skills, good leadership communication skills means reminders about the bigger picture their individual work supports. That's how leaders talk most of the time.

Now you know how to talk like a leader. Put it into practice right away.

Speechwriting: Creating Authenticity - Simon Lancaster

The image of the speechwriter in televised programmes (such as The Thick of It, The West Wing or Yes Minister) is something of a puppeteer, a sinister figure operating in the shadows, malevolently manipulating our political masters. Simon Lancaster believes that the successful speechwriter is less of a puppeteer and more of an impressionist.

In his talk, he will share a number of stories and anecdotes from his time as speechwriter, setting out how he captures someone elses authentic voice and what happens when it goes wrong.

The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:

Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 2,000 lectures free to access or download from the website.
