Why do I need communication skills training?

Research on coaching was carried out by The Graduate School of Business at Stanford in 2013. A study of more than 200 CEO’s, board directors and senior executives of North American public and private companies were polled in the 2013 Executive Coaching survey. One of the key findings from the survey concluded that handling conflict ranks as the highest area of concern for CEO’s. Nearly 43% of CEO’s rated conflict management skills the highest area of concern and one of the top priorities for senior staff to be competent in.
Wouldn’t it be great to feel confident and calm when tense people-situations arise? And when did you last refresh your relationship-building skills?

What’s in it for you:

• Improve the quality of your relationships in all areas of your life
• Reduce stress – you’ll find you have skills and tools to successfully deal with any situation
• Save time – no more worrying about tricky situations
• Quickly understand other people’s perspectives
• You’ll be able to develop a more co-operative team that works together well
• Really ‘walk your talk’
• Find more time in your week

What’s this course about?

The Transforming Communication training was developed by Dr Richard Bolstad of Transformations. It delivers leading-edge skills we know will enhance co-operation and resolve conflict, if you apply them. The training was developed by Dr Richard Bolstad based on his book of the same name. The conflict resolution model it teaches draws on NLP, solution-focused approaches, effectiveness training and John Gottman’s relationships research. Barbara Jaques is one of Transformations’ certified instructors, accredited personally by Dr Richard Bolstad.

We believe in the effectiveness and transformational ability of this training. We’d really love to share with you a skillset you can easily implement to provide you the ability to identify what skills to use in any people-situation, and then apply the right tools at the appropriate time.

To me that’s what makes it different from other courses …”
