"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." ~ George Bernard Shaw

Build better communication & listening skills with your team.

Ever see the movie Cool Hand Luke? I guess we are dating ourselves a bit here, but I bet many of you can relate to the famous quote from the Captain…”What we got here is a failure to communicate!” The movie might be a classic, but the communication issue is inhibiting our progress and costing us tons of money! If your organization is suffering from this common illness in today's age of distraction, we can help.

During this powerful session you will discover:

  • A new mindset.
  • How to apply principles of empathy, language and negotiation to your everyday situations transforming the quality of your life and the lives of those around you.
  • A customizable method to deal with the issues you are struggling with daily.
  • New insights to communicate AND listen more effectively to achieve new success and fulfillment for you and your team.




Without communication, literally nothing would be accomplished in the workplace or, in life for that matter. In a survey of CEO’s from 2015 – 2017, it stated communication was the #1 issue, and it goes way beyond multiculturalism issues. Think about it—daily we mess up instructions, orders, planning, organizing, staffing, leading, developing— EVERYTHING is dependent on the two-way highway of communication! And, it all boils down to impactful listening and understanding BEFORE we speak or write…text…tweet…you get it. We focus on the human side of the equation and leave technology to the experts.
