Good to know

1. Why should I take leadership communication training, and what is its added value?

Leadership communication training offers several advantages. For one thing, it helps you to more precisely express yourself and place messages with pinpoint accuracy. You learn how to channel an audience’s perception so that your message’s content is anchored for the long term. The psychosocial aspect of the training helps you enhance and consolidate your authority and act independent of outside influences. I support my clients in strengthening their leadership roles and image and in maximizing both the efficiency factor (“doing things right”) and the effectiveness factor (“doing the right things”) in their work.  

Leadership communication training makes internal communication manageable and helps you effectively impart corporate goals and strategies. Trainings on external communication focuses on how to win over markets, investors, or shareholders to company strategies or decisions through the power of persuasion.

2. Why are there different leadership styles?

There are different leadership styles simply because there are different types of people. One person might need a little more guidance and a clearer orientation, while another just needs some advice and minimal guidelines for working independently. Then again, leadership depends on the given situation. If we’re in a crisis or need to act quickly, a stricter leadership style may be appropriate. However, if there’s room for creativity, personal development, and greater freedom, I can work with a somewhat inspiring and more relaxed leadership style. It’s always important to know that I can draw on management styles that are suitable for a given situation and the employee’s personal sensitivity or needs. I support my clients in developing the appropriate leadership communication styles and finding the right assertive tone.

3. What are modern leadership styles?

A modern leadership style is generally more supportive and collegial than in the past. In effect, the manager acts more like a coach, mentor, or role model rather than imposing a strict hierarchical approach. Modern managers discuss goals transparently, communicate strategies clearly, and respond more personally to the individual needs of employees. Communication is proactive and exemplifies the values of the company.  

4. Why are you the ideal contact for leadership communication training?  

I’m the ideal contact for leadership communication training because I have a deep insight into the business world, and I originally came from business before embarking on my long media career. With that background, I combine the best of two worlds: business skills and competence in making an impact on others. I work with my clients to determine their actual training needs for and then shape custom solutions for them with a highly personal approaches. All this comes along with the international experience that I’ve accumulated over the past few decades.

5. How do I conduct myself appropriately in external communication (or dealings) with the media?

The “Press and Media Training” seminar was designed to provide you with the greatest possible comfort and security when meeting with representatives of the press and in media appearances.

The seminar focuses on dealing confidently with journalists, creative conversation skills, and thinking on your feet when dealing with unfair dialectics and attacks. In addition, shifting one’s perspective to the needs of the press and media industry helps foster a style of respectful cooperation that wins extra points. 

A careful balance between the precise placement of your key statements and shaping your personal impact on others is developed and applied in real interview situations. This holistic approach is completed with training in dealing professionally with cameras and microphones so you have a structured approach when they’re used.  

6. How do I communicate correctly as a manager?

As a manager, I communicate best with my personal credibility. It’s all about projecting a feeling of truthfulness and authenticity. The more personal it sounds, the more intimate the tone, the more believable the person. The listener has to feel and know that it’s an honest conversation and that you want to deal openly with them. The more this is perceived, the greater my credibility. If necessary, you can be tough about the subject matter itself but still very human in dealing with it. The ultimate goal is to effectively combine human competence with leadership and business competence.

7. What does leadership communication training cost?

The cost of leadership communication training depends on the management level. Up to the third-tier management level, training costs an average of €2,500 including preparation. From the second-tier management level up to the Managing Board/Supervisory Board level, training costs €3,500 including preparation. Personal expenses are charged separately.
