The Naturally Series

What is the Naturally Series?

The Naturally Series help participants improve their ability to communicate naturally with others regardless of their communications approach! Take action and boost your team’s communication effectiveness and make your company truck loads more money! Participants work through a series of activities to uncover their own personal preferences and explore the communication preferences of the people they work with. This allows participants to fully internalize how to tailor their communications in a manner that is natural to each individual communication style. We start by making sure you can remember to tailor the way you communicate to suit the person you are communicating with. We practice and apply communication skills with the team in the room. Your Impact Identifier takes the exercises to target specific skills to develop and address the needs of the team.
“Every 100 employees waste an average of 17 hours a week just clarifying communication. That’s $528,443 annually for every 100 employees.”

HANDLE RESISTANCE NATURALLY

Are you encountering resistance from within your team? This essential program focuses on how to deal with resistance positively through open and honest dialogue in order to strengthen communication and increase the speed in which change is adopted.

Resistance grows in an environment where concerns are left unacknowledged; leading to resentment and self-imposed roadblocks on productivity, progress, motivation, and sales.
Working together through a series of fun and engaging activities, participants learn to view resistance as an opportunity for growth, and that that by asking the right questions and listening actively, change can become more widely accepted and quickly implemented.
