Areas of Better Communication Skills Coaching

  • Presence - Learn techniques that create relaxation, presence of mind, and the calm strength of a leader. Being present slows you down so you can focus your attention, think clearly, and receive another's message.
  • Connection and Chemistry (Rapport) - Learn to make genuine connection with others through non-verbal connection that creates a sense of rapport. Learn to establish chemistry through the art of receiving another person with acceptance.
  • Listening for the Emotional Message - Temporarily set aside your own agenda and give others permission and psychological space to express their views and concerns. Understanding their position will help increase your ability to influence the outcome.
  • Persuasion - Persuasion happens when the listener stops thinking about what you are going to get from him and becomes excited about what you can give to him. Learn the steps for holding a persuasive conversation that help you direct the conversation for a positive outcome.
  • Interview - An interview for employment or media requires an authentic response that expresses your highest thoughts. Learn to interview well by relaxing, listening, engaging with the interviewer and formulating an answer that expresses your highest thoughts.
  • Group Facilitation - Learn to direct productive meetings in a manner that generates trust and empowers group participants. Group facilitation is a way of being with a group that encourages and makes it safe for each participant to give his/her ideas, insights and expertise.
  • Say a Few Words - Learn how to be prepared to speak when you are not prepared for a speech. Develop your unique message template that allows you to anchor your thoughts and words when you have to communicate spontaneously. Use your message template to deliver a message for which you want to be known.
  • Confrontation - Confront means "to face together." Learn to face difficult situations with another person rather than confronting that person. Instead of blaming, learn to collaborate so the outcome is for the good of all.

“I was promoted to Senior Manager. It was an unexpected promotion. You should know that one of the reasons cited for my promotion was my ability to communicate and connect with my staff. I truly believe that much of what you taught me contributed to my promotion. Learning to be "present" for my staff, peers and superiors has made just a difference, Sandra and one I continue to work on daily. The grounding technique is one I rely on regularly to help me get back on track and I daresay, one technique, that I will practice the rest of my life.”

“I went on a job interview and found myself “speaking from my heart” about the future of medical practice and where I would fit in. Most of the providers I had never met. I felt myself really in the moment and among a VERY captive audience. I was just amazed at how it went. I owe my relaxed comfortable interaction to you and the classes.”
