Welcome to this course.

Do you lack confidence in making connections effectively in the workplace? Do you see others successfully building a network and have support from a wide group of people? Do you wonder how to engage others more effectively and reduce frustrating interactions?

You may think it is all too much effort and you'd rather just put your head down and get on with your work hoping you'll get noticed and promoted.

In reality, that won't happen. To assume progressing through your career is a single handed affair is limiting. Developing connections, giving and receiving support from your network and adapting the way you communicate with others will propel your business relationships. These key components are the foundation for you accomplishing results.

  • Discover the impact of creating successful connections.
  • Learn nine ways to choose from in how you master this skill yourself including finding a common ground, discovering language patterns and paying attention to your appearance in relation to the environment in which you are in.

Module 2: Re-evaluating your network so that you have a broad and deep structure of support as you progress in your career. You will:

  • Discover the impact of your attitude to networking.
  • Unlock the myths and truths of networking.
  • Deepen and broaden your network across three different types networks.

Module 3: Understanding your and others' communication style so that you enjoy more engagement and better interactions with others. You will:

  • Discover the world of mindsets; the fixed and a growth mindsets

  • How to engage others with different styles and know the 'watch outs' for what ticks them off.

Following through on the action steps in each module will enable you to develop yourself in all three components and you will see the results for yourself.


What others have said

"The content is terrific. Really enjoyed working through it, have taken a lot of notes and looking forward to trying the actions out."

"I thought it was simply excellent. It really sounded with me and sent a very powerful message. I think it really hits the mark."

"I loved the structure of sections and I found the communications framework really clear and easy to remember, (i.e. the four quadrants). I know I could share my learnings easily with my team - I’d find it easy to explain and they would grasp the concept easily. The exercises were simple and not too complex / time consuming. They felt achievable and something that I knew I could do easily. It was useful to think about my own style, strengths, as well as the potential watch outs. I also enjoyed thinking about other people’s styles and learning about how I could flex my own approach to communicate effectively and influence them (very timely too for me personally!)"

Award Winning International Executive Coach

Hi I'm Jane, I am passionate about helping others achieve more fulfilment in their work by facilitating their personal and professional development. 

I am an award winning accredited Executive Coach and work with individuals who want to progress in their career, take on a leadership role and beyond. I have been coaching for 15 years and have over 3,000 hours of coaching. My work is underpinned by a post graduate diploma in psychological coaching and certified NLP coaching certificate. I am also author of 'Are you listening, or just waiting to speak?' 

Through our coaching clients have successfully landed their dream role, achieved the promotion they wanted, secured a £1million deal, won awards for their leadership and contribution and enjoyed greater fulfilment and deeper relationships at work.

Before becoming a coach, I had 15 years experience in the Corporate environment advancing my career from secretary to HR Director within professional and financial services. 

I know what it feels like when your confidence takes a dive, when you see others being promoted around you, when you struggle to engage others effectively, when you feel isolated and alone in more senior roles. I had to figure it out myself. I figured out how to make connections, develop my network and adapt my communication style so that I could enjoy deeper, broader relationships with others and navigate my career successfully. 

Effective communication was one of the most important areas in developing in my career. Today it remains one of the most popular topics with my coaching clients. Be sure to check out my website and enjoy the free resources, blog posts and articles. 

Thank you for taking a look at this course and I hope to see you on the other side. Wishing you every success.
