Understanding communication styles to increase your leadership impact


When you first meet someone, how long does it take you to make up your mind about them? Research varies – some say two minutes, others as little as two seconds. How do we make these snap judgments? It seems that they are made at a subconscious level.

So what are the signals that our subconscious looks for in weighing up others?

What subtle messages do we unknowingly send that impact how others view us?


This workshop aims to give you a brief overview of a selection of non-verbal communication styles and the messages that these send to others in terms of leadership. It will help you to recognize and enhance your own non-verbal style and to connect with and lead people in a more impactful way.

This is an interactive session with the opportunity to practise what you learn and to take away some practical tips and skills to use immediately.


The workshop can be tailored in content and duration from a 1½ hours ‘taster’ session to a full day to meet the specific needs of the participants.

What Clients Say

“Christine facilitated a workshop on ‘Understanding communication styles to increase your leadership impact’ for our professional body’s Women In Finance network,  as part of our programme to develop leadership skills for women at various stages of their finance careers.   

Christine’s innovative approach to delivering her message and engaging style meant she connected with all the delegates from the beginning which lead to a very enthusiastic and engaged audience.  The interactive nature of the session allowed everyone a chance to put into practice some practical and simple steps to create immediate impact.  The exercises were great fun and reinforced the messages being delivered so that they will be remembered long into the future.  The whole room was buzzing afterwards during a networking session and everyone left having learnt some new lessons for life.

 I would thoroughly recommend Christine to deliver this session to other organisations.”
