Session 1: Communicate with Impact!

Effective communication is one of the most important factors in the success of any organization or relationship. It is vital to understand how to communicate with members of your team or customers who communicate differently than you.
Our ProScan leadership and communication survey is an efficient way to teach your staff about themselves, their peers, increasing teamwork, and building communication skills. Our tools offer a variety of resources such as, understanding personal strengths, developing effective communication skills, attracting and hiring the best, strengthening leadership performance, building high performance teams, and understanding what makes people TICK –their Traits, Interest, Communication Styles & Key action tips.

Value to Participants

  • Identify your personal communication preferences
  • Understand how to lead, manage, engage, and motivate different styles of communicators
  • How to effectively communicate between differing preferences
  • Identify blocks to effective leadership and communication and what to do about them
  • Gain tools for managing conflict

Session 2: If Chairs Could Talk

Most organizations struggle with communication. It is often listed as the number one problem executives have in leading their businesses. They struggle with silos, lack of clarity, disengagement, incomplete information, bottlenecks and more. These breakdowns cost organizations millions of lost revenues each year. Managers are unable to get buy-in for change initiatives, so they are delayed. Customer feedback does not get to the people who can take action. Vision, mission, values and goals or poorly communicated often-leaving team members in the dark with little direction and motivation. New employees are quickly indoctrinated to the corporate communication practices and become disengaged.

We will provide a highly interactive process, which reveals your KCI’s (key communication indicators). This process allows people to experience the realities of organizational communication and connect their different roles to situations and flows of communication. Each person will learn what choices and opportunities for improvement they have based on the different roles and situations (which chair am I in?) they find themselves in. Participants will learn how they can immediately improve their own communication flow and improve productivity and engagement. 

Value to Participants

  • Learn different communication responsibilities based on changing roles
  • Understand how different behaviors hurt or help communication flow
  • Learn to ask questions which will give you the information you need to improve productivity
  • Avoid finger pointing and take personal responsibility for effective communication in your organization
  • Identify what you will do differently to take your team’s communication to the next level


Session 3: Assertiveness and Self Confidence

Self-confident and assertiveness are two skills that are crucial for success in life. If you don't feel worthy, and/or you don't know how to express your self-worth when communicating with others, life can be very painful. These skills will provide opportunities and benefits to your participants in their professional and personal lives. This workshop will give participants an understanding of what assertiveness and self-confidence each mean (in general and to them personally) and how to develop those feelings in their day-to-day lives. These skills will encompass many aspects of your participant's lives and have a positive effect on all of them.
