Communication Training


Our Strategic Approach

We begin every engagement by identifying the communication goals and behaviors you want to see displayed across your organization, within your team or by individual. We then customize our training programs to meet those needs with maximum impact.

Our Services

We offer half-day and one-day experiential and classroom-based training sessions. Our training sessions and workshops focus specifically on the principles of communication leadership and communication clarity.

Experiential Training Sessions

Individuals, teams and organizations today need professional development training that makes a lasting impact. We’ve found the solution. We get people into a fully immersive experience-based environment. Our experiential history-based programs are impactful, memorable and highly applicable for today’s chaotic workplace. Our programs include:

The Washington Leadership Experience – Held onsite in historic Princeton, N.J., participants assess Washington’s character, decision-making and the novel approaches he took to team building at the early stages of the Revolutionary War. We use Washington’s famous 1776 Delaware Crossing as our platform. This is a 1-day session.

U.S. Grant and The Battles of Chattanooga – Held onsite at scenic locations throughout Chattanooga, participants stand in U.S. Grant’s footsteps to evaluate his brilliant leadership qualities, as well as his shortcomings. We use the oft-forgotten yet highly important Battles of Chattanooga (Nov. 1863) as our platform. This is a 1-day session.
The Making of the U.S. Constitution – Held onsite in Philadelphia and at locations such as Independence Hall, participants discuss the importance of a unifying vision and how to achieve it. We study the principles of healthy debate, effective planning, conflict resolution and compromise. This is a 1-day session.

Classroom Sessions

Remote workforces. Siloed departments. Multi-generational teams. How can individuals and teams overcome organizational challenges and bring greater clarity to their communication? Our half-day or full-day Chaos to Clarity workshop is developed from real-world experience. We get to the heart of our clients’ challenges to help people overcome the communications hurdles holding them back.

Chaos to Clarity – A large portion of organizational and team dysfunction — a direct contributor to workplace chaos – is due to poor communication. But chaos turns to clarity when people listen effectively, build trust and communicate with purpose and meaning. In Chaos to Clarity, participants learn how to connect core leadership skills with essential communication techniques to strengthen their own personal brand and those around them. From the art of storytelling to enhancing executive presence, we unlock the power of effective communication to help you succeed in today’s chaotic workplace. This is a half-day or 1-day session.
