How to Say Anything to Anyone: 
Setting Expectations for Powerful Working Relationships

Download Program Description

100 Word Description:

You have a request for one of your co-workers but don’t know how to say it, so  you don’t say anything. A project you worked on for six months has become a black hole.  There is no information about the status. You’re frustrated, but you don’t say anything. Two employees aren’t working well together. It’s impacting the atmosphere in the office. You don’t know what to say, so you don’t say anything. Speaking up when we are frustrated is hard and, as a result, most of us don’t. Instead, either we tell other people (aka gossip) or we say nothing, and relationships become strained. You can say anything to anyone and have it be easy. You just need to lay the ground work to do so, and most of us don’t.

Three Learning Objectives:

  1. Build trust in all of your business relationships, making it easier to say hard things.
  2. Find out what the people you work with need from you, so you don’t have to guess.
  3. Tell others what you need, making it more likely that your needs are met.

Just Say It:  Making ANY Conversation Easy.

Download Program Description

100 Word Description:

No one wants to hear that she isn’t doing a good job. Thus no one wants to tell her. Telling your boss you’re frustrated or aren’t hitting your targets is even more difficult, and thus many of us don’t. Worse, is that most feedback, positive or negative, is useless because it’s vague. Get a simple formula to make even the most difficult conversation easier. Conversations will be short, specific and on point. They won’t be personal. They will be actionable. You’ll be able to say what you want to say, when you want to say it, in a way that the other person can hear you and take action.

Three learning objectives:

  1. Give clear and specific feedback that employees can act upon immediately
  2. Provide feedback to peers, direct supervisors, and others at a higher level in a way that does not elicit defensive responses
  3. Eliminate your blind spots. Receive more feedback without showing emotion or frustration

100 Word Description:

Customers provide us with clear feedback. They hire us, or they don’t. They return our calls, or they don’t. They refer others, or they don’t. Unfortunately when customers are dissatisfied, they don’t tell us. They vote with their feet. 99% percent of customer turnover is predictable and preventable. The signs are everywhere. We just don’t know what they are, because, for the most part, customers don’t tell us. Customers leave and we never know why. Get to the heart of what your customers need and why they hire or fire you. Never get fired again and be surprised.

Three Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase customer satisfaction, loyalty, referrals, and commitment.
  2. Get more customers. Keep more customers. Make more money.
