Types of Communication

In the workplace, communication covers many activities and skills needed. We can help you improve your skills when:

  • Giving a presentation
  • Leading/conducting a meeting
  • Making a sales pitch
  • Giving feedback
  • Using digital communication tools (e.g., email, Slack, Teams, etc.)
  • Teaching a class

What a Coach provides is an objective person whose attention is solely placed on you, your goals, aspirations, and motivations. A Coach can discover patterns that aren’t helping you achieve your goals and teach you how to rewire your brain, so your patterns obtain consistently positive results.

  • Do you sometimes get bogged down with perfectionism?
  • Set a goal but can’t figure out why you don’t do it?
  • Struggle to understand why you aren’t moving in the direction you want in your career?
  • Know you need to grow yourself to achieve your goals?
  • Need to grow more quickly than you can grow on your own?

When we learn new soft skills, we can change the trajectory of our lives by a few degrees. Over time, a few degrees can send us to a very different place. Workshops can help your team point the ship in the right direction so you move together. Having an outside perspective help the team grow can bring alignment and gives every one on the team the opportunity to participate, engage, and grow.

  • Do you need to align “best practices” across the team?
  • Need to elevate the level of presentations from all team members?
  • Want to help your employees grow but aren’t sure how?
  • Build the team environment and encourage good, constructive feedback?
