Are you in a work environment where communicating effectively with other people has a large impact on the success of your day?


Communication is just talking, right? How hard can it be? Well…VERY!

86% of people believe ineffective communication or lack of collaboration cause workplace failures.*

We face more challenges than we realize in our exchanges with others; what you meant and how you came across can be two very different things that are at odds with each other.

We’ve all been there, and it’s a difficult place to be. It can feel like no matter what we do, we can’t break through the barriers.


Yes, there is hope! Communication is so much more than just saying words; it’s exchanging meaningful information and producing a result from that exchange. It means ensuring the team is aligned with the right goals.

In fact, 97% agree a lack of alignment within a team directly impacts their results.*

We’ve developed a Strengths-Based Communication course called How to Talk About It to help you and your team achieve more than you ever dreamed possible.

By blending StrengthsFinder methodology with an effective communication model, How to Talk About It helps your team create a safe environment and develop the skills necessary to tackle tough conversations when results are on the line, at all levels, about anything!


This course has been designed for groups of 15 people or more. They can all be members of your team, or members of other teams. We’ve found having a minimum group size of fifteen enriches the learning experience; the more perspectives and experiences in the room, the more each individual benefits!

If you’re still wondering if How to Talk About It is for you and your team, ask yourself this:

Am I a human that communicates with other humans? Are the rest of my team?

If the answer is yes, then this course is for you!

Enhance Team Performance



Communication often breaks down when it’s most important. High risk, results-oriented conversations are the exchanges we need to be the most proficient in, and tend not to be.


No one likes a pointless meeting. Meaningful conversations align individuals with the team goal and produce tangible takeaways everyone is accountable for and can act on.


By having meaningful conversations when stakes are high, you and your team gain a competitive advantage by becoming results-oriented, rather than problem focused. You’ll hit your goals and so much more!
