How do you achieve professional success?
You might be the most skilled and talented person in your department …
… but that doesn’t mean you’ll get the cool project, the promotion, or the raise.
You might have the most amazing people working on your project …
… but a group of people on a project isn’t necessarily a collaborative team.
You might be the best strategic thinker on the planet …
… but if you can’t inspire your employees, your strategy will never be implemented.
And you might be all of these things and more …
… but if you struggle with negotiation, conflict, and debate, you’ll also struggle to succeed.
So, how do you
- Ask for what you want in ways that inspire others to say Yes?
- Overcome confusion, mistrust, disagreement, misunderstanding, rivalry, and conflict?
- Encourage employees to implement meaningful – and sometimes scary – change?
- Bring independent, creative people together into high-performing teams?
- Open minds and hearts and build collaborative relationships?
Communication. That’s how.
Real communication is a requirement for success.
Without it, relationships struggle. Careers aren’t as successful as they should be. Negotiations fall flat. Conflicts linger, unresolved. Attempts to collaborate wither and fall away. Businesses fail to create the working conditions that attract and retain top-notch employees.
… what should I say … why aren’t they listening … that’s not what I meant … how can I get through to them … why don’t they understand …
I help business owners, leaders, teams, and individuals with the challenges of communication in the workplace
I help them solve tough communication problems so they can create meaningful, collaborative relationships, build high-performing teams, develop and sustain a strong company culture, and grow their businesses and careers.
I’ve studied communication since I was in college, business since my first corporate job, and conflict resolution since 2013. I’ve studied human behavior all my life.
I’ve been a corporate officer, executive, and member of senior leadership teams for over 16 years, an independent consultant since 2005, and I’ve volunteered for and served on the Boards of several non-profits.
And I know that real communication – clean, clear, honest conversations about real issues – can create miracles.
