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.
‘Developing excellent communication skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership. The leader must be able to share knowledge and ideas to transmit a sense of urgency and enthusiasm to others. If a leader can't get a message across clearly and motivate others to act on it, then having a message doesn't even matter.’ Gilbert AmelioPresident and CEO of National Semiconductor Corp.
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.
