Katja Schleicher is a sought-after Communications Expert Trainer and keynote speaker.  She gets managers, teams, women, and men to talk - and improves their communicative impact in Public Speeches, conversations, and media interviews.

After a long career in PR, advertising, TV, and corporate communications for high-tech companies, she has been on the road for nearly two decades to guide her audiences through all the (intercultural) communication shallows and misunderstandings.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Communication is difficult because people are more in love with numbers than with words. You need to communicate with people, but there's always more for us to learn about how to do that better and authentically.
  •  Agile communication is adapting quickly to situations with the respective communication patterns.
  • Narrative communication is a way of connecting the dots logically and emotionally. Connecting the dots with emotion is easier than with facts and figures.
  • Sustainable. Communication is when people talk about what you said in the way you intended it, and then they can act upon it.
  • For day-to-day communication, Katja recommends keeping it smaller, engaging, and on eye level with your audience. Especially among peers, it's essential to be honest with your expertise and to build common ground with the audience.

Memorable Quotes From Katja Schleicher
