      Every executive and team has experienced the frustration and cost of failed communication.

      The High Cost Of Bad Communication

      Even the most talented team members who are sincerely doing their best in the technical aspects of their jobs can be handicapped by:

      • Lack of emotional safety which destroys the exchange of ideas
      • Over-reliance on electronic communication creates misunderstandings
      • Communication style conflicts bring frustration and avoidance
      • False perceptions result in unnecessary conflict (open or hidden)
      • Past negative patterns prevent team work
      • Hidden agendas sabotage profitability

      Each of these erode employee engagement and productivity in a different way.

      When was the last time poor communication cost you or your company money?

      Communication Is The Foundational Skill

      Because effective communication underlies all other skills necessary to succeed in any job, if team members fall prey to the natural inclination to be persuasive and “win” rather than understand, or be defensive if they perceive they or their ideas are being attacked (whether they really are or not), conflict festers and profitability is compromised.

      t

      How could you and your team benefit from better communication?

      There Is A Better Way

      Imagine instead a workplace where high levels of trust and safety allow ideas to be expressed without fear and evaluated objectively without defensiveness or private agendas.

      This is a workplace where people understand each other, and knowledge is transferred freely and listening to understand rather than arguing to win is the norm.

      This is all possible using Paul’s proprietary step-by-step Communication Dynamix™ strategies to create dramatic improvements in as little as an hour – even if individuals and teams have been communication challenged in the past.

      What Paul Is Saying

      Failure Doesn’t Equal Defeat

      So… here’s the secret to getting the most out of anything that goes wrong. The events are going to occur and yes, we don’t want to pretend that they didn’t.

      The secret is in the way you define and label the event when you think about it.

      This is going to have a huge impact on whether that particular event turns out to be empowering and moving you toward a goal. Or un-empowering and holding you back and maybe even putting you in a place in your life where you can’t move forward.

      The Danger Of Labeling People

      We use labels all the time to simplify life.

      The reason we use labels is because there’s so much information in the world that we can’t process every piece of it individually. So we group things together and we put labels on them. We have to do this to keep from being overwhelmed and maintain our sanity.

      Think about the labels you use for yourself and those around you.

      What Other People Are Saying

      Thanks again for the tools you provided at our shareholders meeting.  I’m noticing that we are regularly trying to employ better listening techniques…and everyone is still trying to figure out how to make the “neutral” positions for listening a more natural part of our conversations.

      It’s challenging to adapt, but it’s an effective strategy.  I’m happy to see everyone making a conscientious effort to actively listen (including me). Brenda Bevington

      Many courses deliver content. This was the first short course I’ve ever taken where the material was delivered so well and so convincingly.

      The effort you have put into preparing and delivering this material is more than I can comprehend right now. The timing, staging, cadence.

      Paul, your consideration of the audience demonstrates how effective these tools can be, and in the process of this demonstration introduced some of the most powerful skills I have ever learned about. This course and your delivery is nothing short of masterful. M. Johnston

      The Communication Styles workshop was rated the highest component of our training program.

      Our attendees felt the awareness and insight to their own communication styles and how they interact with others was extremely valuable for their continued success… their only complaint was that they needed more time with Paul  to explore using their results in everyday interactions. Jennifer Beery

      Sr. Director of Recruiting, Suddenlink

      It was clear that Paul’s materials were well developed from a content and presentation perspective.  However, the defining factor was being able to reach him via voice for a brief conversation to discuss an introductory activity that generated further interest and created immediate value.

      This was far more relevant and meaningful for our global team than commonly recommended ice breakers and virtual activities. Brenda Bradley
