UX

I believe that 90% of work is building relationships. Whether you’re the manager of a team that’s not cohering, a company that wants better cross-functional collaboration, or an individual looking to get out of your own way, I can help.

 

Deep collaboration is at the core of being effective at work. I teach managers, teams, and individuals the “soft skills” they didn’t get in school or on the job.

 

Managers and Teams

A team with strong relationship and communication skills is a one who’s more empathic, collaborative, works more efficiently, and enjoys work more.

 

• Do you wish your team was better at cross-collaboration?

• Are conflicting visions or personalities keeping them from the next level?

• Are you not sure how to integrate junior people into your group?

• Did you know that training in relationship skills can measurably increase collaboration, creativity, and revenue?

 

Coaching and workshops for teams can include:

• Managing and resolving conflict

• Working with different personality types

• Easily giving and receiving feedback

• Presenting work without being attached to the outcome

• Building relationships with other functions

• Improving communication and listening skills

• Taking a team from functioning to thriving

• Setting up an internal apprenticeship program


A team with strong people skills works more efficiently, recovers faster from setbacks, has more fun, and increases revenue. Ready to take your team to the next level? Contact me
