Getting action from your message

All of our modules use interactive techniques that bring the client into a direct involvement with the developing skill sets. The module “guide” offers overview and helps to set goals, but it primarily encourages “hands on” participation. These techniques become part of a natural evolution of the learning experience. We use progressive video-taping with immediate feedback and critique, and client’s self- analysis on all modules.  While we offer specific goals for each session, people all advance at their own pace. Some of the modules below require several sessions.  We offer many opportunities for out-of-session learning and feedback on an as-needed basis as well.  Our ultimate objective is to help you become a better communicator who is prepared to deliver his/her message to audiences with precision, confidence and skill.

All of your communication efforts are gauged by results. You can be rhetorically outstanding, have strong persuasive techniques and clarity, but you must “ask for the order” to achieve your ultimate goals. Even experienced communicators sometimes ASSUME the audience will get the message.  Yet, often even the clearest message will not yield specific results.  This module focuses on how to avoid this pitfall and get the desired action from your message.
