The purpose of this project is to work with your team to teach confident communication skills in the workplace and the community. This is includes 2 x 5-hour masterclasses plus face-to-face coaching.

Some topics covered in the masterclasses include:

  • Understanding Communication styles and how to adapt your own style when required
  • Rapport building strategies for improved collaboration and easier workflow 
  • How to recognise stress reactions in your team members and customers and respond appropriately so that there is a fast resolution- especially when engaging with community
  • The benefits of email communication and where it  can all go wrong (and how to fix it)
  • The power of words on influencing others and communicating your message
  • Motivational strategies
  • Metaprograms - advanced understanding of people and their behaviours
  • How to chair meetings in the most efficient manner
  • Engaging your audience - from boardrooms to community forums

In addition, each team member will attend an individual coaching session with Carol around two weeks after the second masterclass. This will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss the concepts learned in both masterclasses and how they can be applied very specifically to their role in the business.
