Influence is a leader’s SUPERPOWER. Leaders known for their professional influence are asked to give their input and insight on important matters. But what is the anatomy of this mysterious force? This course breaks it down for you so YOU become that person others call on. Learn to speak with FLOW, Emotional Expressiveness and Precision within your  “Charisma Zone.”

From the time when he served as Lecturer in China in the 1980s, Dr. Rios has been researching the challenges that Chinese face as communicators in a second language. This course is the result of decades of teaching, training and coaching Chinese around the world. His unique experiential approach to learning integrates live performance techniques with case study research in ways that foster courage and build confidence, the core building blocks needed to become an Influential Communicator.
