What you'll learn
  • At the end of the 'fundamental stage' students will understand how to become more credible and confident in their own communication.
  • Students will also learn some really simple techniques and tools that will enable them to develop their own communication style and build their own self-confidence.
  • You will need a device to record yourself on, some paper, a pen and an open mind.

Using all of my 22 years experience as a behavior and communications expert to create a course that will enable you to build your confidence and become a master of your own communication.

The 'Fundamentals' covers the two elements  of the learning journey that are prerequisites for you to be able to Master your own communication. The full course will be available in a couple of weeks, however, I wanted to release this earlier as a free taster to gain your feedback, spark some interest and also give you chance to try the learning experience.

So the Fundamentals, what are they?

1. Mastering congruence of your communication: Communication is not just about the words we use or the visuals we reference. It is a journey into someone else's world where we either resonate or alienate with our message. These session enable you to understand the theory and then learn from your on experiences to enable you to start improving your own congruence and credibility.

2. Mastering your perception of communication: Perception is a very fickle friend or foe. It can work for you and enable you to learn from your experiences and become a more engaging and inspirational communicator or it can work against you making you hide away and fear speaking your mind. These sessions give you what you need to enable your own learning from having the most productive perception and build your confidence by using every opportunity to learn from your own experience.

I hope you enjoy these taster sessions.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to develop their communication style and be more confident in getting their message across.

To really master your own communication you must first gain the most productive perception of the mechanics of communication. 

In this session you will understand the concept and then start the journey towards a sustainable self driven approach to developing your own communication through your own experiences.

Perception of Communication: The concept and learning

Who is responsible for your communication?

Have you ever been frustrated because the person your are trying to engage just isn't interested? are they distracted? Ever been misunderstood? Someone get the wrong end of the stick?

 Instead of thinking of these as negative experiences here is the methodology for making them the experiences that enable you to truly develop your own wonderful unique communication style.

Mastering the Perception of your communication: Are you at Cause or Effect?

Following from the previous session, here is an example from my own experiences using the 'Circle of Influence'
