Webinar: Everyone Communicates, Few Connect Effectively

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to move forward in their careers while you seem stuck? Why no one seems to think your great idea will work? Why your team members don’t seem to pay attention to you at work? Did you know that productivity increases by 25% when employees feel engaged with their work and connected with their co-workers? Does it seem as if nobody is listening to what you say? Maybe they’re not listening – because you are not really connecting, even though you are communicating.

We are all different, but predictably different and understanding the patterns of people provides a very valuable key to getting along with each other. This session is to answer the question "Why do they act that way?" and provide an insight into the four different communication styles. Learn how to recognise each style and how adapting our style to that of others will increase your influence with them.

Learn specific strategies and tools that can help you put others first, to listen well, and to find common ground. Whether you are a leader trying to get people to follow you or you are desiring to build a stronger bond with your co-workers, connecting with others will help you identify with and relate to those around you in a way that dramatically increases your influence.

At the end, you will be sent to Breakout Rooms where you can apply some of the techniques and make new connections more effectively.

Have you ever experienced similar things?

  • Maybe you are the most skilled person in an area at work, yet you never get promoted.
  • Or you work hard and produce, but others don’t seem to appreciate what you do.
  • Or maybe you desire to build relationships with people around you, but they don’t seem to listen to you the way they do to others.
  • Or you want to create an effective team – or just become part of a good team – but you are made to feel like an outsider.

What’s the problem? Join us to find out how to succeed with other people. This incredible message focuses on the skills and techniques to make connections with people quickly.

This talk will help you learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.
