“Let’s Talk About This…”
It sounds so simple, so painless, so….easy.
It’s the very thing that, as leaders, we are supposed to be good at. It’s assumed that our team members are supposed to understand how to communicate clearly and use those skills with ease and success.
But if it’s so easy, why is it the cause of so many problems?
Why does it seem to often get in the way of a peaceful and productive team that has so much potential?
- When we feel unheard, we lose faith in our leaders
- When we feel misunderstood, we lose trust in the direction of the team
- When young adults aren’t sure of what they need to say or do next, we can lose our enthusiasm
In other words, authentic communication can start to feel like a pipe dream.
At it’s worst, it can cause us to feel unsafe and not know who to trust. We feel like we are without allies in a hostile environment.
Without understanding others, our leadership can do more harm than good. Instead of feeling like we have a solid team working towards a common goal, we can have:
- tenuous conversations fraught with tension
- disregard for structures and processes put in place
- resentment and competitiveness
- lack of accountability and a sense of entitlement
- lack of interest or commitment
The list could go on.
Authentic connection that results in clarity, mutual respect and, most of all, personal and team success, doesn’t need to be complicated.
There are three simple, basic building blocks to understanding others. When we understand what they are and how to use them, we can begin to see immediate results:
- Understanding what motivates other people
- Recognizing our own communication values
- Learning how to recognize what others value and using their values to connect
When young leaders understand how simple these keys are to use, it will transform conversations and leadership.
They can learn how to take something from explosive to exploratory, while still having the sense of being heard and understood.
These kind of results overflow into every area of our lives, transforming us in the process.
As an ICF certified coach, Christal has mentored and led hundreds of young leaders to learn how to use these principles in their daily interactions to build trust, authenticity and genuine connections.
All of this is presented in a simple, fun workshop that engages and inspires teams to see how they connect with others differently.
As a team workshop, this is a specially designed 90-120 minute event that Christal will co-create with you around your students/teams’s specific needs.
Costs for educational institutions/organizations start at $950 per workshop or up to three workshops per day for $1250.
