Today's leaders must have an ability not only to analyze thoughtfully but also to communicate clearly and persuasively. This module will seek to strengthen the capacity of each student to speak well in public settings. Approximately one-half of the module will be devoted to classes that introduce students to strategies of communication. The other half will consist of smaller workshops in which students will hone their speaking skills, including the development and analysis of both their presentations and their sense of presence, and their handling of stressful situations in which they must manage themselves well.
