The Program

The Next Generation Leadership Communications Program is an intensive leadership development program designed for the next generation of leaders in the transportation industry.  New and future leaders of BCTA member companies are invited to participate in this four-module certificate program.  A minimum five years of management experience is recommended for program participants.

The objective of this program is to help participants to build influential communication skills that can be used both inside and outside their organizations.  Throughout the program, participants will apply what they are learning through facilitated discussions, role-plays, and videotaped feedback from the instructor.  The goal is leadership in all interactions.

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

1)   Approach all communication with the intent to engage their audiences and inspire action;

2)   Organize their thinking to create clarity and focus in their communication;

3)   Project a dynamic and authentic executive presence in all situations;

4)   Communicate clearly and listen well in impromptu and challenging conversations; and

5)   Lead and attend meetings with the intent to drive action.


The Humphrey Group

The Next Generation program sessions are facilitated by The Humphrey Group, a Canadian leadership development firm.  The Humphrey Group focuses on fostering leadership in its clients by strengthening their ability to communicate in a way that influences others and inspires action.  We are pleased to partner with The Humphrey Group to deliver a program that addresses the need to build and enhance leadership skills within our members' organizations.



When leaders speak, whether formally or informally, it is often said that they have presence.  But what exactly is presence?  Presence is a quality that we ascribe to people who can connect with us and hold our attention.  This ability to draw the audience in and create a connection is essential for leaders whether in one-on-one conversation or a formal speaking opportunity.

In this module, participants will learn to engage their audiences with a natural, authentic presence.  Participants will strengthen their ability to:

•             Project executive presence in all situations;

•             Show confidence using strong body language;

•             Make effective use of eye contact;

•             Speak at an appropriate pace; and

•             Use varied expression and tone.

Each participant will deliver a short talk and receive individual, videotaped coaching both on content and their delivery.

Our apologies, this program is now full and no longer accepting registrations.
