    Even the brightest, most skillful executives may be leveraging only a fraction of their talent and potential. Chances are, you’re one of them. But you may simply need to learn an important way to reach the level of corporate leadership you desire: understanding and controlling the image you communicate to people. Some call it "projecting your brand" - an outward persona that lives up to the experience, knowledge and leadership qualities you’ve worked so hard to build. It’s a measure of your sincerity and your confidence. In short, it’s a key to your success.

    That’s why Carlson School of Management developed this highly-focused, one-day program: we recognized that the way you connect and communicate with others is an extremely important factor in achieving your professional goals.
