Why is it that some leaders achieve high levels of visibility and opportunities to impact the world while others don’t? Most leaders possess great talent, discipline or drive and combine that with experience and expertise to get ahead. Most employ efficient systems and effective teams who align with their vision and mission. They set goals, measure performance and work long hours. But what is it that allows some to stand out, garner more attention, and engender more significance?
No matter the industry or sphere of influence, exceptional leaders almost always have a secret weapon – they have studied and worked with speech coaches to become exceptional speakers.
