About this workshop

There is usually at least one pink elephant in every office – that unspoken tension that no one talks about. To prevent the elephant from creeping in, it’s important to build a culture based on trust and collaboration.

During class, students will actively learn how to listen at a deeper level and ask powerful questions that get at the real issues at hand instead of avoiding the elephant in the room or getting stuck in "firefighting mode" and spinning in circles.

They will also learn how to bring out the best in others, in a way that has co-workers feel seen, heard, and recognized for their good work and contributions - all of which leads to higher levels of trust to directly impact bottom line results.

This class is ideal if you work closely with others and find that mistrust, miscommunications, and misunderstandings to be more of the norm rather than the exception in your day-to-day operations.

During this engaging class you will learn key communications skills to create greater understanding and enhance trust. Helping to build productive teams that collaborate more effectively. We will explore how to listen beyond the veils of excuses, fear and mistrust, to hear what matters, how to ask powerful, conscious questions that lead to new ideas and solutions, and learn how to be a champion for others you are leading.
