Description

Sometimes when you try to connect with someone, it seems as though you come from different worlds. You may feel frustrated or disappointed that you are not making any progress. This situation can happen in both your personal or professional life.

This course is for anyone who would like to develop better communication skills and build stronger relationships in any category of your life; work, business, family, or personal life. I'll introduce the basics of communication, the different orientations or styles people fall under, and how you can adapt your style to create a greater connection with them.

What will you learn?

In this course, you will learn to improve your communication skills when you interacting with the people around you. It will give you a fresh perspective on how to approach your conversations, both online and offline, whether you are in 1-to-1 or group meetings, presentations, negotiations, leading a team, or in everyday social interactions.

By applying the skills you will learn in this course, you can be more aware of your own habits and start the process of customising your message to win friends and influence people. You can start to attract more opportunities in your life, or create deeper connections with family, friends, employees, or clients. You can also avoid behaviours that break rapport with your co-workers, boss, friends, or loved ones. A good understanding of this framework will allow you to feel more confident and comfortable in any future interactions.

I don't want to convince you to take this course. I encourage you to try it and see how it can transform the quality of your life. Everyone can learn to communicate better.

Hi, I'm Jack and I have over 15 years of experience in sales, business management, leadership and organisational learning and development. I hold degrees in life sciences, economics, a Master in Applied Finance and a PhD in Education.

When I graduated from college in my early 20s, I was shy and unsure of myself. Since then I've had the opportunity to pursue many different paths in my life, and undergo an enormous personal transformation. I owe this to the drive to constantly improve myself every day and daring to try out new things, even if that meant failing often and the painful process of picking yourself up after each failure.

In my career, I have worked in the financial services industry in Australia, serving various sales, relationship management, and learning & development roles. As an entrepreneur, I previously co-founded and was the CEO of a luxury fashion distribution business, growing the startup in 3 years to a USD40m per annum APAC business.

I was a leadership and performance coach for a global consulting company, teaching and facilitating programs in technical and soft skills, such as emotional intelligence, negotiations, conflict resolution, and mindset transformation. I have worked with Fortune 500 companies, including within the sectors of banking and finance, education, healthcare, construction, FMCG, and the government.

I hope I can be one step to help you in your journey to achieve the dreams you set for yourself and manifest the life you imagined.
