Mike Coote was a front-line Army officer in the South African Army, then pastor of a large church, and now is a leadership specialist in the UK. How we use language to influence and lead is one of his passions.
Influential leaders know how to use language powerfully. Inspirational leaders use it in a life-enriching and positive way to encourage, influence and guide the people they have responsibility for. And leadership and language are common threads in the lives of all of us, no matter who we are.
In this interview we look first at some core elements of great leadership and then drill down into many practical examples of how to use words in a way that enriches those around us and helps everyone get the results they want.
