Diplomatic Leadership Training

The ultimate soft skills diplomatic leadership training that fully engages a global audience.

Make an impact using story telling techniques online and offline to make you more influential, more credible, more investable.

The Diplomatic Leadership Training is a unique blend that combines diplomatic strategies, the techniques of non-verbal communication, and the art of storytelling to captivate an audience to support and work in your country. Your ability to come across as engaging, impactful or authoritative is determined by the perception of how people see you. These essential skills are rarely taught at work or education until now.

Who is the Diplomatic Leadership Training for?

The Diplomatic Leadership workshop is ideal for practitioners who are engaged with people from different cultures and nationalities, and have difficulties:

  • bringing in new prospects, investments and deals from abroad
  • working with challenging stakeholders from various nationalities
  • engaging in public speaking and have no personal brand
  • re-igniting their passion for their career and personal development
  • reaching their goals and aspirations
  • controlling feelings of being overwhelmed or unmotivated
  • applying practical tools that could improve their skills as a leader in their sector
