When your leadership and mid-level managers need help with their communication skills, Felicia Slattery can help and has training, consulting, and even individualized coaching for every member of your team. Whether your organization needs help with holding better meetings, delivering better presentations, or connecting with each other in a more effective way, you’ll find help right here. If you don’t see something you’re looking for, programs can be created specifically for your organization’s needs.

GENDER COMMUNICATION TRAINING

Each week seems to bring new allegations, new accusations, and new challenges related to sexual harassment. Yet, what we have witnessed in the United States since the fall of 2017 is only the tip of the iceberg.

Hollywood and high-profile men were first. But make no mistake: women everywhere are being empowered by seeing others like themselves who were harassed finally getting their day in court, and because of that, will soon be standing up for themselves in record numbers. And rightly so. Women and men alike should be able to work in a safe environment.

It’s time to be proactive to protect your organization from being on the wrong side of a lawsuit – and help the greatest percentage of your good, hard-working people to be protected as well.

Here’s How Felicia Slattery can help:

  • One-Time Gender Communication in the Workplace training: This light, upbeat, and fun interactive training will show all your employees the right way to interact with each other.
  • Private Consulting & Coaching: If your organization has identified someone who has difficulty understanding what appropriate behavior in the workplace is, yet who performs well otherwise in their position, it’s worth the effort to help that person modify and improve their behaviors.
  • Ongoing Monthly Training: Each month your staff can participate in a face-to-face or virtual lunch and learn session that reviews various issues related to effective communication and gender in the workplace.

Functional Public Speaking Skills for Professional Success

(Each session available separately; full training is a multi-session program)

Throughout your organization, you have staff at every level who will likely need to present key findings or information, or persuade some stakeholders that their ideas are solid, or a change of some kind can be made. And while most people with a bachelor’s degree had to take at least one public speaking course while in college, most remember very little (other than perhaps feeling nervous!) and those that can remember some details, aren’t able to transfer the skills from the classroom into their professional setting.

Participants will discover:

  • Top 5 ways to begin any presentation (and none of them are unrelated “dad-jokes!”)
  • How to structure a presentation whose primary purpose is to provide information
  • How to structure a presentation whose primary purpose is to create change, get agreement, or motivate some action
  • How to deliver a powerful presentation
  • 3 specific ways to get over a fear of speaking (and address the myth of a “born speaker”)
  • How to make any meeting interactive, fun, and engaging so people look forward to your meetings (or at least don’t dread coming!)
  • Closing a meeting and getting people to take action

.

The following can be taught onsite as an extended half-day or full-day workshop, via 90-minute webinar, or via licensed video for regular, on-going use at your organization:
