This technical note is used in management communications or strategic communication courses in MBA or executive education programs where students are learning to develop their ability to persuade others through oral and written communication. It includes a framework for assessing the various skill sets that characterize accomplished communicators and guidance for both extroverts and introverts on refining their particular leadership voice and style. These are powerful tools for managers who wish to distinguish their organization from the competition in part by coaching team members to become exceptional communicators. This technical note is particularly impactful for courses where students have an individual speaking assignment or a group presentation. This note often is used in conjunction with the technical note, The Canons of Rhetoric.
