LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT

Communication skills are a critical item in any leader’s toolkit. Our leadership communications workshop modules include; providing and receiving effective feedback, managing teams and delegation, team building and creating psychological safety, and creating and implementing a unique leadership communication style.

COMMUNICATING ACROSS DIFFERENCE

Teams that behave and think differently solve problems faster and with higher levels of innovation. We teach people how they can more deeply understand their own communication and behavior patterns as well as how to engage with colleagues who behave and communicate differently. These programs utilize the DISC assessment and focus on increasing cognitive diversity and behavioral awareness.

GENDERED COMMUNICATION

When it comes to business development and career advancement, communicating effectively is critical. But the research is clear; not everyone is heard or received the same way. In these programs, we explore key findings in the latest research regarding gender identity and communication. Participants actively discuss how to leverage this knowledge to simultaneously navigate and influence complex organizational landscapes.

MINDSET AND RESILIENCE

Personal and cultural resiliency (growth mindset) are essential skills for high-achieving professionals. But what does a growth mindset mean, and why is it so important to attain? Resilient thinking and a growth mindset are connected to skills like utilizing feedback, engaging in creativity and innovation, and creating psychological safety in teams. Participants of all levels will learn the core concepts of resilient communication and how to begin adapting them to their unique working environment.

COMMUNICATING FROM ANYWHERE

Communication has always been a critical professional skill. With the recent changes to our workplaces, all professionals must learn how to communicate effectively regardless of method and platform. Participants learn the concepts of effective communication, managing relationships, navigating challenging conversations, and professional communication skills in different technology platforms.

EXECUTIVE PRESENCE AND NETWORKING

You have to know who you are to build successful relationships. Our presence and networking programs, help all professionals take control of their careers through increased self-awareness, verbal and physical presence, and brand development. These programs are customized for every group, from student to senior executive. Participants use engaging activities and tools to start molding their unique professional presence. By taking a more active role in developing their professional brand identity, attendees engage in ownership over their careers.

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT SKILLS

Conflict is all around us, and that isn’t always a bad thing! When engaged in productively, conflict allows us to be innovative, creative, and build stronger relationships. We actively explore the different ways conflict shows up in our work. Participants learn to differentiate between productive and unproductive conflict, discuss conflict ownership, and learn the challenging skills used to move from conflict to understanding. We design these interactive and customized programs for audiences who experience and or manage conflict.

SELF-AWARENESS & RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

Self-awareness is a foundational communication skill that can be developed at any stage of professional life, and our workshops are designed with each specific group and level in mind. For early or mid-career professionals, self-awareness often relates to managing up and controlling professional presence. Self-awareness programs are often combined with the complimentary skillset of “other” awareness to improve relationships and develop trust.

This was the best firm-sponsored workshop I’ve been to in a long while. Rachael was a fabulous presenter. Her delivery was very smooth, entertaining, and chock full of tidbits and connections to aid in attendee learning.

Retreats

Sometimes it takes a change of scenery for a change in mindset. Do you have an offsite meeting coming up? Retreats can take our Workshop programs to the next level.

If a full-day or multi-day facilitation is in order to get your staff focused on your clients, your teams, and their own communications—we’ve got you covered. We will tailor a unique program to meet your needs and the audiences at the retreat, in order to drive the biggest change.

Please reach out and we can discuss.
