Steve Jobs didn’t just found and run Apple—he catalyzed a movement. Whenever Jobs took the stage to talk about new Apple products, the whole world seemed to stop and listen. That’s because he was offering a vision of the future. He wanted each person to realize what the world could become and trust him to lead the way to this new world.
As a leader, you have the same ability to anticipate the future, invent creative initiatives, and inspire others to support and execute your vision.
On October 27, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, acclaimed communication experts Nancy Duarte and Patti Sanchez will describe the communication tools used by Jobs and other visionaries, such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., to move people. Duarte and Sanchez will explain how to lead people through transformations by using speeches, stories, ceremonies, and symbols. They will share best practices and specific examples from their book Illuminate: Ignite Change Through Speeches, Stories, Ceremonies, and Symbols.
To envision the future is one thing; getting others to go there with you is another. By harnessing the power of persuasive communication, you, too, can turn your idea into a movement.
Join Nancy Duarte, Patti Sanchez, and HBR on October 27 to gain insights into the key communications tools and techniques to ignite change.
