What Others Are Saying

Rob had the ability to be especially adroit in dealing with group conflict, oddities, and plowing new ground in his role as Facilitator for the Kellogg Foundation. Almost everything about the Mid-South Delta Initiative project was unique, especially Rob's tri-state group. We were literally charting new territory, and Rob was our trusted guide.

Focused Communication

We teach your people the tools needed to skillfully operate their part of the business like they owned the business.

Communication is the basic skill that all supervisors, leaders and team members require to be successful, yet few people understand the process of communication.  The Focused Communication Skills workshop investigates the process of communication and the specific communication tools, such as speaking, listening, questioning, and feedback, that are required for information trainsfer and mutual understanding.

During the workshop the participants investigate the communications process and its impact on their ability to effectively interact with peers and empower and supervise workers. They develop an understanding of which communication approaches work best with their direct reports and how to modify their communication styles to optimize information transfer.

At the completion of the workshop, the participants will be able to:

  • Use the proper communications tools to give instructions and ensure that those instructions are understood
  • Understand the communication dynamics inherent in their interactions with direct reports
  • Modify their message to address the particular needs of each style.


The skills developed in this workshop enable participants to more effectively communicate with peers and direct reports. Misunderstandings are minimized.
