During the seven weeks, the student will: Learn communication skills for authentic leadership and to affect change; Craft and deliver effective, persuasive speeches; Build critical listening and peer coaching skills; and Gain confidence as a public speaker. To be effective change agents in the corporate responsibility and social impact space, students need to learn to be effective communicators in a variety of different settings. For instance, one student persuaded others in her group to donate over $200 for a worthy cause as a result of her prepared speech. Students are often encouraged to volunteer time to community organizations or to take action as a result of the speeches in this course.
