This free course teaches you the six central aims communicating in a way which builds great ongoing relationships. 

It is equally applicable to business, personal and intimate relationships.

There is nothing which can do more for your career prospects than improving your communication skills.

This is the free foundational course for all of Dr Lexander's courses on communication such as:

  • The 10 Steps for dealing with upset people
  • The 7+ Steps for asking for what you want
  • The 11 ways to spot a conman/woman
  • The 15 ways to charm/engage someone at first meeting
  • The 14 Steps for turning around a toxic relationship

  • "This book changed my life."
  • "The most useful and positive book I have ever bought."
