Gravitas Masterclass Next Month

What can we learn from Cicero and the leaders of Ancient Rome?

Have confidence for presentations, media, meetings and difficult situations.

Over 2000 years ago the leaders of Ancient Rome lead a civilisation of military, political and social institutions. Leaders like Marcus Aurelius, Cicero and and Julius Caesar had incredible influence and power.

What they really had was gravitas.

In today’s leadership context, leaders need to create exceptional connection with their audience to engage and inspire fast. The skills of the Ancient Romans can teach us so much about the lost art of communication and how these skills can be applied today.

In this highly interactive, engaging and fun 1-day masterclass, Dr Mahler offers theory and interaction-based around winning the hearts and minds of those around you with the following outcomes:

  • Development of a diagnosis: Analysis of your individual body, mind and voice patterns to instigate a program for your ongoing long-term presence and influence improvement
  • From Slaves to Emperors; How to elevate power and presence to perform under pressure delivering impactful messages
  • Understanding of the psychology of performance, audience engagement and unravelling the psychology of difficult situations that create performance anxiety
  • Building the skills of body and voice that underpin interpersonal engagement and the power of gestures that undermine a message and presence as a leader
  • From the Roman Forum to the Boardroom: Present any content with creativity and originality and agility

This masterclass provides an outstanding leadership development opportunity for those leaders who need insight and awareness of their own gestures, mannerisms and numbers are strictly limited to allow for individual attention.

What some have said....

“You were brilliant, and we all walked away with valuable skills. But even more importantly, everyone to a person remarked how good it was to have a good belly laugh.”

“I have implemented lessons learned in the workshop into my every day mode of operations. I can say that this has assisted me in resolving the conflict situation to the level that when I used this the client who was full of anger responded with an apology and decided not to pursue the negative line of communication.”
