Perfect Your Communication and Engagement

Effective communication is integral for the success of any organization.  Whether it’s among employees and peers, between managers and direct reports, or between staff and customers, people need to engage in skillful communication, attentive listening and strong relationship-building activities to meet organizational goals.

The right kind of communication helps improve the interactions and strengthen the relationships among all employees and stakeholders to generate better solutions and results for the entire organization.  It increases clarity, understanding, trust, rapport, collaboration, problem solving, engagement, motivation and accountability among all parties.

This workshop is interactive, experiential and hands-on, and can be tailored for specific individuals, teams and organizations, based on their particular circumstances, needs and goals.  It is delivered onsite in one day (one eight-hour session) or two days (two four-hour sessions).

One of the most important things I learned in this workshop is the value of Relational Presence when communicating with others. When I’m speaking with someone, using good nonverbal skills and really listening to them will help us get things done faster and easier, and help me feel better about my relationships at work.
