BE about it – How To Communicate in the 21st Century

As summer approaches and we reflect on what we have done this past year, where we have come and where we want to go, “Don’t just talk about it, BE about it” is our motto.

This has been an interesting year full of learning for us.  We are thrilled to say our book is progressing and we can’t wait to share it with you.  As two non-writers, it has been such an interesting process for us.  Over the years, we have enjoyed the many brilliant communication books that “talk about it”, we are eager and excited to share with you our book that contain the tools so you can “BE about it”.

In the next few months in celebration of our book and our Coaching CultureTM  communication model, we are going to change-up our blog a bit and try something new.  As our world is changing and we are shifting from the Industrial Era to the Knowledge Era, the tools and approach we once thought we needed (telling, judgement, right/ wrong) are no longer serving us well as leaders in our lives, our language has changed.   We want to bring our workshops to you and open up to our community going direct to the source giving you the exact tools you need now so you can stop talking about it and start being about it – speaking the language of the 21st century.  So, each month we are going to break down a step in our Coaching CultureTM communication model and then discuss it for the month, giving you practical tools to BE about it.  We have learned over the years the power of sharing experiences in our workshops and groups – so many of us struggle with the same issues and can relate to each other through our struggles.  The learning that comes from them is powerful, collaborative, and can be life changing.

We want to hear from you.  Share with us where your struggles and challenges lie.  And like a workshop, as a community we can discuss and explore, collaborate and challenge each other while being supported, giving you the tools you need to be who you want to be, today.

Having trouble communicating with your boss or coworker at work?  How is that affecting the way you are showing up to work or doing your job? 

Feel like your kids or spouse never listen to you?   What role do you play in shaping your family’s culture?

How effectively are you building your relationships?  How is that affecting your business, your clients, or your personal life?

Are you surrounded by tellers?  Or are you a teller?  How is that impacting your work, your relationships, how you make your decisions?

Feel like all your conversations are confrontational?  How is that serving you?

 

We want to know what’s getting in the way of your success, what’s working well and contributing to your success, and what you are talking about yet aren’t BEING about?

Here are a few of the topics we are going to cover:

Listening

Telling

Values/ Assumptions,

Asking questions

Reframing

Challenging conversations

 

“If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.”

 

Join us as we embark on something new.  We want to stop talking about it and globally BE about it.
