NEW YORK, June 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Last night, Leading Communicators Inc. received three top global awards from the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) at the Gold Quill Awards ceremony held at the Hilton Centre Hotel in New York City. All three awards recognize the company's unique ability to measure how effectively a leader speaks through its evidence-based Speakcheck® diagnostic.
Leading Communicators received the prestigious Gold Quill Best of The Best Award for Communications Research for Speakcheck's ability to assess a leader's spoken communication based on the leading research. Leading Communicators also received the Gold Quill for Excellence in Leadership Communication and the Gold Quill for Excellence in Research Innovation. In this worldwide competition, it was the only company to win three of the top awards. Through extensive research, the company identified all of the elements essential to a leader's ability to speak in the way that engages people and influences them to act in the way that supports the leader's goals and objectives, and then embedded it all into its Speakcheck diagnostic.
"As far as we know, we're the first to market anywhere in the world with a means of objectively measuring how a leader speaks so it's great to have this kind of international recognition, " said Marianne Gobeil, CEO of Leading Communicators. "What's even better though is seeing how this diagnostic is dramatically strengthening the impact and influence of the leaders who use it."
