These strategies work across departments, teams, and cultures and help you get through communication blockers.

Mark Twain said, most conversation is a monologue in the presence of witnesses. It's a fun reminder that effective communication is more than what you say. It's presenting yourself and your message to have the most positive impact on people to get the results you really want in work and life. It also reminds us, communication always goes two ways. We need to connect with people, sooner rather than later, to have the best effect on them. Do this well, and you go far beyond Twain's fear of monologues that miss the mark. You gain influence, strengthen trust, build relationships.
And you get results. That's what we cover in this course. How do present yourself, and your message. And how to connect with people to have a positive impact. Both in the moment, even under stress and pressure. And consistently across situations. The action tools we cover apply across all important communication events. Formal, or informal. Conversations, meetings or presentations. I've taught at one of the world's leading schools of management for many years and given countless speeches and seminars to business audiences. My book on influence was selected as one of the 30 best books in business of the year by a leading business executive summary firm.
I couldn't be more passionate about our topic, and the opportunity to work with you on it. Mark Twain also said, the secret of getting ahead is getting started. I want you to get ahead, and stay ahead. So let's do it. Let's get started.
