These entertaining and educational talks are designed to engage the audience with a specific topic of interest and leave the listeners with practical tips to try on their own. The 60 – 90 minute sessions are interactive, fast-paced and ideal for medium to large groups meetings.

Express Yourself Assertively

Most of us like to believe we communicate clearly and easily, that our message gets received as we intended and the interaction is successful. However, in many business situations, communication is a lot more fragile. When time is short, people are defensive or the situation is tense, communication can easily breakdown. As professionals our intent is to communicate with respect for self and respect for others. That is what Assertiveness is all about.

In this practical session, you will learn the real meaning of “assertiveness,” its impact on body language and how to use some assertive techniques to communicate effectively in challenging situations.

Are You Really Listening?

Covey said “Most people listen with the intent to reply. They’re either speaking or preparing to speak.” With multi-tasking and technologies that keep us hooked up electronically, it’s harder than ever to put our brains on full stop and actually listen to others. In fact, the listener has more control over the conversation than the speaker. Successful selling is a 70% listening proposition. How well do you listen to your peers, your customers, your kids? Whether you want to build relationships, inspire trust or sell in, there are ideas and skills that can help you improve listening. Learn strategies to put your best listening into practice to achieve your end goal.
