Throughout their lives, high school and college kids have had more emphasis placed on resume writing than on conversation or interview skills. And thanks to technology, they are also a generation that doesn’t engage in much face-to-face conversation. So it’s no wonder that when it comes to having productive conversations, they don’t have the prowess and they are scared and intimidated.
Because they don’t feel confident, they will avoid difficult conversations at all cost. But avoidance leads to misunderstanding, resentment and unresolved issues at school, work, home and with their friends.
This course helps high school and college students face their fears by building communication skills. They learn how to align on goals, give and receive feedback, work through conflict and understand different audiences so they can feel comfortable speaking to anyone in any situation.
Conversational Excellence™ training programs help teams: gain a clear understanding of success, take ownership in executing what is in their control, and helps them become more aware and respectful of others’ intentions.
When you’re talking to someone do you think about how you’re sitting, the angle of your head, or where your hands are? Probably not, but you should. Because your nonverbal communication can say more than your words. While your words provide content your body expresses intent and can shape the tone and outcome of your conversation.
In this workshop, we focus on the affects of gestures and movements and how to use body language to create productive conversations.
Do you have people in your company who are driving everyone else crazy? (We know you do…every company has them.) The good news is, there’s usually a pretty easy solve. What we’ve experienced is that those people mean well, but they lack the appropriate conversational tools and skills to engage and maintain a productive conversation. That’s why we created Coaches’ Corner, private coaching for people at all levels, designed as a “drop in clinic”. The program is on an as-needed basis. So there’s no major commitment of time or financial resources. Think of Coaches’ Corner as quick fixes to avert major issues.
