About this Class

Communication skills are crucial to present, influence and connect with others in a powerful and persuasive manner. You need more than general training. You need focused coaching on how to structure and deliver messages while remaining congruent to yourself. This program provides that by helping you move from unconscious reactions to conscious trained responses. It helps you to get more of what you want, more of the time, with less hassle, less resistance and more buy in at all levels while sustaining this over time.


Why should I attend?

Most communication patterns are formed over time; habits can only be broken through awareness, decision, commitment, and practice. New behaviors require a new language.  This approach involves working at two levels: inside-out and outside-in to help you balance the “what” and “how” of your communication and operates at the following three levels:

  1. Presentation skills – specific techniques, mechanics, and approaches will be taught and coached that will build on your past courses
  2. Emotional awareness – allowing you to be emotionally available throughout presentations and interactions to assess the impact of what and how you are presenting
  3. Communication skills – to say what needs to be said creating higher levels of acceptance, while being aware of, and reducing resistance
