Communication Skills Training in NYC 

Trust is the cornerstone of any high-performing team.  To build trust, nothing is more important than communication.  All of our communication skills workshops can be customized for any audience and tailored to meet specific objectives.  


Courageous Conversations

In this workshop, we will explore both the art and science of courageous communication that fosters true productivity and collaboration. Participants will learn and practice five key conversational moves and leave with a toolkit and customized action plan that will increase their ability to courageously communicate in a way that produces real impact.

Influencing Skills and Personal Impact 

In today’s workplace, positional power is not enough to drive results.  Leaders must be able to build effective relationships to influence outcomes. 

In this highly conversational program, participants will explore various methods of influence and the practical skills for authentically influencing others without owning the positional authority. 

Management Skills Training

High-performing sole contributors do not automatically translate into good managers. Individuals are often promoted based on their technical skills and their ability to execute.  Without training, the transition to manager can be difficult.  

Presentation Skills Training

Using a range of proven speech training techniques and practical exercises, participants will learn to deliver with greater confidence, clarity and conviction.  Key skills and techniques are developed in an engaging, interactive and risk-free environment.

Leading High-Performing Teams

High-performing teams are the key to any successful business. Through facilitated discussion and interactive exercises, participants will get an objective perspective of their team’s dynamics , their role on the team and how to establish more generative relationships with co-workers.  


Our Business Storytelling workshop offers skills to help leaders build better teams, strengthen client relationships and increase influence.
