A few weeks ago I partnered up with my friend, Skip Weisman, to bring you the seven deadly sins of communication and how to overcome them.
My favorite tip offered was to stop saying, “but” and instead say, “and.”
For example, instead of, “That’s a good idea, BUT we tried it before and it didn’t work,” try, “That’s a good idea, AND we should look at why it didn’t work last time to make it work this time.” Instead of, “That’s a good idea, BUT we don’t have the money,” try, “That’s a good idea, AND we will need to figure out the ROI if we’re going to get approval.”
Look how the world of possibilities opens up!
On a totally different note, I’ve gotten several emails from people wondering when I’m going to offer my train-the-trainer course again, so I’m going to offer it again.
This time the course will be online, and spread over four months. We will hold one interactive webinar every other week, and you will have the chance to go and implement what you learned between webinars. Then we can debrief and discuss our wins and challenges on the next call.
I’m going to teach you everything I know about how to create and sustain a positive workplace culture, so that you can repeat the process in your own organization.
If you’re interested, click here to fill out an application. I will follow up with a phone call.
Our first group meeting will be on July 29… our last will be on October 26. No travel, no scheduling issues. If you miss a call you’ll be able to listen to the recording of it. And in addition to the group calls, you’ll get a bank of four hours to use with me privately as you go.
This is the first time I am doing this, so I am only accepting 7 attendees. Claim your spot ASAP by filling out the application.
P.S. If you’re thinking, “I’d love to do this BUT…,” try, “I’d love to do this AND I’m going to submit the form to get more information.”
