Inspiring others through words and actions is a pivotal skill for successful business leaders. Yet effective communication is often one of the most challenging skills business leaders are faced with throughout their careers - especially when communicating publicly about the social impact of their company.
This highlights the importance of honing communication skills in various settings, such as participating in events, engaging in panel discussions, contributing to round tables, and leveraging networking opportunities - all of which vocL provides. In these settings, vocL Voices have the opportunity to positively communicate their company’s purpose and to influence policy making that helps broader business to contribute greater value to society.
By actively seeking and embracing these opportunities, business leaders can broaden their communication repertoire and navigate the complexities of expressing their vision and goals more effectively.
In the following video, vocL Voice and Digital Transformations Consultant, Dara Latinwo is shown participating in a variety of these opportunities, gaining invaluable experience and building on the skills necessary for a responsible business leader with an authentic voice.
We believe that for businesses, investing in your workforce leads to an army of talent who are committed to their company. It brings new ideas and commitment to the business, increases productivity, builds responsible future leaders and ensures lower employee turnover - to ultimately build a stronger and more sustainable business.
