How to Craft a Killer Message People Remember

Here’s a challenge for any leader…how do you communicate your ideas so they stick.

In this session, I want to show you how boiling your bottom line down to a single sentence or phrase forces you to clarify your thinking. As a result, your message becomes much more clear and memorable not only to you but to your audience. 

Get access to a brand new Monthly Team Training session every month when you join The Art of Leadership Academy. Each month, you’ll get an on-demand video, slides, and application steps for you and your team.

What if…

…Staff showed up engaged instead of preoccupied?
…People were
motivated to grow things instead of showing up for a paycheck?

…your team actually
achieved your most ambitious goals instead of settling for mediocre results?

Without a better strategy for attracting and keeping great people:

Your best leaders leave.

Toxic people and traits end up running your culture.

Your current team stays disengaged.

You don’t achieve your goals.

It’s discouraging and demotivating.

Without a better strategy for attracting and keeping great people, here’s what happens:

Your best leaders leave.

Toxic people and traits end up running your culture.

Your current team stays only moderately engaged, or disengaged

You don’t hit your goals.

It’s discouraging and demotivating.

Don’t let your mission suffer any longer.

Hi, I’m Carey Nieuwhof.

Throughout 25+ years of leading churches and businesses, I’ve learned there are far too many unanswered questions we face as leaders.

As both an attorney and pastor, I realized that I graduated from law school but no one taught me how to run a law firm. I graduated from seminary but no one taught me how to actually run a church. 

It can feel intimidating and confusing trying to understand how to create a positive team culture, lead through change, lead and develop a team, and much more. 

I also realized I wasn’t alone. There are common challenges that hold back thousands of churches and businesses.

That’s why I founded The Art of Leadership Academy—to provide you and your team with everything you need to lead, run and grow your business or impact-based organization.

The Art of Leadership Academy connects faith-minded business leaders and church leaders to learn from trusted experts and from each other. It’s a unique connection for top-level peer learning and mentor-level guidance.

The online courses and learning community provide you and your team with everything you need to lead and grow your church, business, or impact-based organization.
