Emma

MD, Creative Services, UK

All the insights I gained were startling unexpected and simple. I could put them into practice immediately, so started to see a difference in my communication before the program was finished.
A tough conversation I was dreading and putting off, but by using what I’d learned it went better than I’d ever imagined.

Peter

MD, Software Company, UK

Learning to question my own assumptions was really valuable, as was learning to really understand what’s going on in a situation, before you start to make judgements as to who is right and who’s wrong.

Cathy

Project Lead, Healthcare Provider, UK

The best ever online program I’ve ever attended and as a L&D professional I’ve been on a lot!
It was genuinely fantastic.
Everything you did kept me and the team engaged. I came away with loads of transferable life skills that are really helpful in work and home life.

It’s enlightening, easy to follow, simple yet impactful handouts and beautifully and clearly facilitated. I believe as leaders we all think we can communicate well, yet a refresher and a little reflection ensures we do not become complacent with our communication, and therefore we become enriched in our conversations.

Dan

Senior VP, Head of Agile Coaching, Banking, USA

In this fast paced world we’re living in, we don’t always get time to think and time to reflect and be curious. The Better Conversations program can help leaders and team members be more appreciative and aware of how we listen to one another, our own state of mind and how to ask questions and make less assumptions.

This course is for everyone who talks to other people.
It gave simple and good perspectives on many of the hidden aspects of a good conversation. It is short, efficient and fun. It can have impact on all aspects on your life.

The Better Conversations Back Story

Pioneered and developed over years in the crucible of a fast-paced growing technology company, the Better Conversations Program was initially an in-house solution to the real need of senior management for everyone in the company to have and use better communications skills.

The upside of diverse teams is innovation and creativity; the downside can be a toxic mix of conflict, misunderstanding and frustrations – that damage productivity, profitability and team moral.

The in-house solution worked so well that the Better Conversations Program has been launched into the wider world (after extensive piloting and testing to make sure it was fit for purpose in other organisational settings) so people-centric leaders and their teams can benefit from being happier, more focused and effective in their everyday communications and work life.

Experience shows that the solutions to better workplace conversations had to be practical, simple and easy to implement, otherwise they just wouldn’t gain traction and be effective and so
