Trinity Business School has launched a new ‘Impactful Communication’ programme in partnership with The Communications Clinic.

The programme is aimed at Executive Leaders to develop their communication and influencing skills.

The programme, designed for C-suite executives, senior managers and business leaders, will help leaders to enhance various skills such as influencing and changing behaviour in an organisation, influencing and persuading others to change attitudes and mindset, understanding your communication style and developing listening and questioning skills. Other skills include the power of storytelling and chairing and facilitating meetings, whether in-person or in a virtual environment.

The five modules include:

  • Creating your Compelling Narrative
  • Communications Under Pressure
  • The Art of Interrogation – Listening, Questioning, Interviewing
  • Facilitation and How to Gain and Maintain Attention
  • Impactful Communication in the Remote Workplace

Eoghan Tomás McDermott, Managing Director of The Communications Clinic will join with faculty members of Trinity Business School in delivering the programme.

Speaking about the programme, Michael Flynn, Director of Executive Education at Trinity Business School said:

“Being able to communicate with impact and influence is an essential skill for effective leaders. In these unprecedented times, where complexity and uncertainty abound, it requires even more attention. We designed this new online programme to meet the needs of executive leaders who want to increase their managerial efficiency and maximise their abilities to change behaviours within their organisations, even in a remote work environment. This course, led by renowned Trinity academics and the Communications Clinic experts is an exciting add-on to our suite of successful leadership programmes”

Eoghan Tomás McDermott said:

“Impactful communication is essential for the success of every Executive Leader, whether that’s inspiring your staff, connecting with your customers, or working with your board. With remote working a huge part of our everyday lives now, senior leaders are finding it more challenging to do this effectively. Through a mix of practical exercises led by The Communications Clinic, combined with cutting edge research from Trinity Business School academics, we’re going to help them have impact in this new workplace”.

The live interactive online workshops and lectures run in September and October 2020. For further information on the programme and how to apply see www.tcd.ie/business/executiveeducation/ .
