Influence Is the Key Skill in Leadership
When you are looking to create change in your environment, the skill you need most is the ability to influence. In buying and selling, influence is king. In promoting ideas, influence rules. Nothing will improve your life more than acquiring the ability to influence.
Dr. Z’s clients learn how to influence their environment in a positive, results-oriented, most effective way.

The Brain-Based Program

Communication Is the Connective Tissue of Leadership
Great leaders know communication is more than talking. It is the one of the best ways to gain and use influence. Effective communication is one of the most important skill a leader can possess. Effective leaders present their ideas clearly and positively influence their peers and teams. Technology is changing the ways we communicate and changing the way people receive and process information. It is important to understand the changes that are occurring in people’s behaviors, such as the shorter attention span and multiple distractions that can be induced by social media and modern communication gadgets.

Dr. Z’s Cultural Leadership program

Connecting with People Is the Pinnacle of Leadership
Effective communication skills foster the ability to connect with people on their terms. The ability to recognize different personalities and behaviors will help you better connect and resonate with the people around you. When you add in the skill of active listening, you’ll be able to make a lasting impact and positively influence people.
