In today’s fast-paced and busy work environments, it can be challenging to creatively craft ways to make employees feel their true value.

Team Excellence

When a team works together efficiently the results and success can be off the charts incredible! However, when a team isn’t strong, they aren’t productive and the outcome can be detrimental for each member involved, not to mention your company. A team equipped with the right skills and knowledge to increase and enhance respect, communication, and camaraderie between each other will operate as a well-oiled team; producing powerful results.

I’m ready to teach you how to use each uniqueness and strength within your team to come together and create those powerful successes you strive for.
Have you ever felt like you were making decisions, without a clear vision, just for the sake of forging forward to survive? It doesn’t work. It produces chaos that robs your energy and reason.

Improve your memory! Manage overload! And use the best decision-making approach for each and every situation you encounter!

If you are ready to take the steps to understand what drives difficult behaviors then map out your change, I’m ready to help get you there!

Written Communication

What do you think when you read a poorly written email, newsletter, or document? Not great things I imagine! Poor business writing skills not only reflect negatively on the writer and company – it confuses the audience and hurts the brand’s reputation. And, as you know, this can be costly. Understanding the steps of positive and effective communication, proposal writing (formal and informal) and clear, concise, and powerful communication are just a few of the ways I will teach you how to improve your writing skills and produce professionally written business communications with confidence!
As I’m sure you have already come to find out, grammar rules are not as cut and dry as most people think.

Together we will go through the rules (even the ones with the sometimes confusing wiggle room) about using punctuation appropriately for writing clarity, learning the proper use of the eight parts of speech, constructing well-written sentences, and understanding subject-verb agreements. (Note: it really is exciting stuff!)
It’s no secret that email inboxes are bombarded with emails all day, every day. It is also no secret that email marketing and communications are powerful tools you should be using in your company – but you need to make sure you are using it as effectively as possible to reflect your business positively in all aspects. So how do you make sure your emails do just that? One of the most important things is how it is written. Poorly written emails waste time, and put simply – they annoy people. Writing well-written and professional emails, crafting subject lines that make the recipient want to open the email, and using the appropriate tone for your audience are all factors that will leave the recipient with a lasting, positive impression. After this training you will be well prepared to use your emails as a powerful tool to build your brand and relationships.
