fundamentals of communication
Present Yourself Professionally
Well-articulated, complete, and concise communication is a vital skill every professional must possess. However, learning effective communication and presentation skills takes practice. Thousands of professionals around the globe revere this program because of its compelling yet incredibly straightforward approach to empowering individuals, teams, and organizations. We believe that a presentation occurs anytime you speak; therefore, this program engages participants in a multitude of presentation scenarios, including:
Formal & Prepared Presentations
Formal presentations are usually prepared deliveries, possibly supported by visual aids. We expose participants to a novel structural framework and an amazingly effective visual aid creation strategy that brings clarity to the most challenging of presentations and topics.
Informal & Impromptu Presentations
Informal presentations occur daily. They give others a professional representation of who you are and sometimes even happen without you realizing it. Our roadmaps for success will create individualized frameworks for participants to effectively deliver their messages in a clear, complete, and concise way.
refine your team's communication skills
Fundamentals of Communication gives your team the tools to clearly communicate their ideas and present themselves professionally, in any situation. Throughout the program, participants will receive feedback in three different ways.
Our facilitators provide in-the-moment coaching that allows participants to adjust their delivery in real-time. We model the strategies and processes we teach in each of our programs.
We create a learning environment that fosters and encourages specific, well-balanced, and non-judgmental peer feedback. This type of feedback benefits both participants and their peers. Creating an environment where participants expect effective and robust feedback paves the way for continued progress, even after participants complete the program.
Self-awareness is critical for participants to improve their skills. Participants are video recorded a minimum of three times throughout the program. We utilize these recordings to validate the facilitator and peer feedback, which ultimately allows the participants to embrace and understand the notion that, to the audience, perception is reality.

what our clients say
I’m always concerned heading into a 2-day program – but you never lost my interest. Watching you consistently use the skills you were teaching us helped me as much as anything.
Very useful! This program is necessary, valuable, and enjoyable--I will use 100% of the content. Transformative!
[Fundamentals of Communication] was excellent! The best training seminars I have been to in a very long time. And, as uncomfortable as it was seeing myself on video was very helpful to reaffirm the feedback comments.
Excellent program! It was great to have the ability to see areas that could be significantly improved and observe some of the skills in the video. I’ll use this in finalist presentations and implementation meetings – both face-to-face and on the phone.
