Next-level Communication Skills


Inspire followership and action from your teams, peers and stakeholders.



Advanced communication skills are essential for success both personally and for driving effective business outcomes.
Particularly in a VUCA world with ever-increasing demands and external noise.


You can hold your own in conversations, but to truly stand our you need next-level communication skills. It’s not enough to be brilliantly competent: people need to know about it. Not because you tell them, but because you and your work are visible. You inspire people, you get things done.

In the Next-Level Communication workshop, you will expand your awareness of self and others, before learning communication strategies to increase both engagement and impact.

  • Understand and grow build credibility


  • Adaptive leadership and positive psychology
  • Performance management

  • Inspire commitment

Our workshops are a little different, because our facilitators aren’t only trainers. They’re also experienced coaches.

Our goal in workshops is not a mere knowledge dump, but to help you shift the dial. Adjust your behaviour. That requires information and commitment. We help you make some great decisions. Decisions on more optimal outcomes in your work based on data, best practice and experience.

The training industry widely reports that about 10 – 30% of training is retained… and that 80% of learning actually happens in the application of that new knowledge. Coaching is the best way to help someone to apply what they’ve learned, to their unique environment. Amid the noise of their role and competing priorities!

During the Advancing your Inclusion Strategy Workshop you’ll do a great deal of reflective and experiential learning. After the workshop, you’ll start to apply this new knowledge in your own role.

As a follow up to the workshop, we invite you to take up a heavily discounted coaching offer, specific to the workshop. Two 1:1 video calls of up to 30 minutes, staggered over the 3 months following your workshop. Your coach will help with the practical application of those behaviour changes. So you can adapt the strategies to your style, in your environment.

Essentially you determine the outcome and we use lots of questions, to help you close the gap to reach it.

These are some of the surface questions you can expect.

What do you want to achieve? What’s stopping you? What are the options for moving past that obstacle? And what will you commit to, to bring those actions into play? To make this goal your reality?

You will emerge with more passion and conviction for what you’re doing, with greater clarity on your direction.

The follow up coach sessions will hold you accountable to those actions you decide upon. You’ll practice what you’ve learned, then debrief to do more of the great and less of what’s not working. You will cut through the noise of your regular job, to tweak your behaviour, applying the strategies learned to effect lasting change.

We’ve had people flying / driving in from the regions to the CBDs for a while now, to attend our leadership events. This time, we’re bringing the events to Regional NSW as well as to Sydney. We could not be more excited to bring Next-level Communication to you 🙂

Oh and our venues are quite beautiful. Experience shows us that the more immersive the location for training, the more the content sticks. It shouldn’t impact, but we know it helps.
