Communication Intensive

Get Serious

We’re not interested in delivering feel-good training programs with cute icebreaker exercises. Instead, we have participants roleplay (yeah, they don’t love doing it, but we don’t give them a choice) real-life situations on camera, and then receive feedback immediately from their colleagues and an executive coach as they watch themselves on tape. Then we have them do it again. This intensive, video-based approach to training is powerful, slightly painful, and permanently transformational. If you want your managers to learn how to confidently handle difficult conversations, to successfully give feedback, and to effectively influence others, and have it stick after they leave the program, let’s get serious.

The Communication Intensive has two parts:

  • Advanced Communication Skills training: a half-day deep dive into the best practices of effective communicators
  • Communication Bootcamps: full-day practice sessions (limited to four leaders at a time) that use video-based roleplays and peer feedback to reveal, correct, and improve long-standing communication patterns

Clients who want train a larger, mixed group of managers and staff, and give their leaders more in-depth training and practice, offer the Advanced Communication Skills training to everyone, and then follow-up with Communication Bootcamps for select groups of leaders.
