  • Make an action plan to incorporate what you've learned

Participants leave this workshop with more confidence, a range of actionable tools and a better understanding of the helpful (and harmful) ways people communicate.

The workshop is usually 2 x 2 hrs and can be split differently and customized as needed.

I felt like the way the presentation was laid out was really helpful, for example the clever names for tactics and ways to distill the points down into easily rememberable tactics we could employ

I liked the attention and negotiation tactics, I appreciated that there were a variety of recommendations so I can take them with me and test out what styles will work best for me. I also liked the section about meeting personas because I had never really thought about it that way.

This was an incredible course, with the right combination of information + examples + interactive practice. The model of influence was awesome - so useful.

The coaches are both knowledgeable and passionate about their work and I walked away learning several valuable lessons that I'll immediately bring to the workplace. Thank you both!

I enjoyed listening to other coworkers and getting support and ideas to improve ourselves. The storytelling activity was the most impactful part for me. I thought it was great to learn how to properly recover from a derailed conversation without being rude and by being professional.

If you've been in a setting where you don't know how to capture / maintain / recover a conversation or meeting - this workshop will help you. If you already know, I'm confident this workshop will still help you improve those skills. Highly recommended.
