The Language of Leaders

The Language of Leaders

by Swati Sengupta


It's common to be afraid of having important conversations and speaking in public; we fear public embarrassment, shame, or negative impacts on our careers and love lives. Whether during a job interview, staff meeting, or a date, we all want to be heard and taken seriously. The power of persuasion isn't endowed at birth; it's available to everyone but takes a bit of training to attain.

The Language of Leaders is an edX course presented by Swati Sengupta, a leadership expert and esteemed faculty at the State Bank of India's Leadership Institute. In this course, Sengupta masterfully teaches specific exercises and preparations that will help you turn even the most daunting speaking task into an opportunity for you or your team.
