Calling business owners, professionals, and leaders.
When you communicate effectively, you make more friends and more sales, open doors, enjoy work, get more done in less time, and lead with confidence.
In business, relationships are key. Every day you communicate with clients, vendors, prospects, team members, and community collaborators. Do you like the way you interact? Is it time for a communications tune-up?
Do difficult conversations leave you feeling tense or anxious?
What would make you a better communicator?
- Talking less?
- Listening more?
- Staying calm and not overreacting?
- Clearly stating your expectations without angst or apology?
Whether you’re a solopreneur starting a home-based business or a seasoned business owner, this course heightens your awareness and increases your skills for communicating effectively in all of your relationships in business, family, and friends.
Most of us tend to fall into the same communication pitfalls until we take the initiative to communicate differently. While many aspects of our communication style may run smoothly much of the time, there are usually some less well-functioning parts that could benefit from some refinement.
This three-week series guides you to explore and practice effective strategies for navigating your communication challenges by identifying the most crucial areas for your attention and improvement.
The more we become aware of own our communication blind spots that snag us into unnecessary conflict and confusion, the better able we are to create a strong, healthy and vibrant work life that meets our needs and those we serve. We set the tone in our home and business.
