What is it?

From Mark Horstman, Co-founder:

"You don't realise how much your communication style is a deeply ingrained habit. 75% of the time at work your natural style actually gets in your way. We're going to teach you to see other styles, and change your own. It'll be hard, because you'll be uncomfortable, but you'll be amazed at how well it works. This is the best training I've ever created about the most important thing I ever learned in my professional life."

Recommendation

Tyler joined us for the Effective Communicator Conference.

He said: "When I say, “professional” I mean Dani and Sarah stayed on their feet with clear voices, clear speech, varied tone and examples to make sure the subject matter was thoroughly explained and engaging. Every question was welcomed and answered thoroughly while staying fanatically on-time."

This has been the best learning experience I have had for the last 15 years. Hands down.

Kenneth Karru-Olsen

I was really able to evaluate my style, but more importantly I have come to understand how to meet others half way. The interactive nature of the conference was very effective.

Michele Gill
