1-ON-1 COMMUNICATIONS COACHING
Private, tailored 1-on-1 coaching helps you identify gaps, address and refresh the subtler areas of communication, plan for key upcoming meetings, and maximise your sense of control and effectiveness across the full spectrum of business interactions.
Your intention and attitude account for well over half of the impact and outcome. If you approach the person you’re communicating with, with both a belief in your own ideas but also an openness and genuine interest in their world view and thoughts, you massively increase the likelihood of a positive outcome for all.
Having done your preparation, be willing to ‘rip up the speech’. Once you’re there, Face-2-Face, you want to be fully present, open, responsive and flexible. Keep your planned questions and advocacy available to refer to and work through but also be extremely open to input, suggestion, tangents and creative new solutions.
Nobody thinks they’re a bad listener. Everyone who you think is an appalling listener thinks they’re good at it. Which means our own self-assessment isn’t reliable. Brush up on your listening skills from time to time. Consciously practice for a few days or weeks to make sure you’re fully present with and understanding the people around you.
