    Wimpy writing just doesn’t get results! Fat-Free Gracewriting® teaches you to write with power by being clear, concise and correct. In today’s lightning-fast business environment, no one has time to read wordy emails, letters or proposals. It’s time to put your writing on a diet!

  • The Human Connection at Work & Play

    In this workshop, you’ll learn to connect with others and convey information with passion and clarity. No more useless meetings, fruitless networking events or frustrating conversations. Your team will learn to create clear and genuine communication that truly gets the message across and meets their listeners’ needs. One of the keys to doing just that is Whole Brain® Thinking. You’ll learn the secrets of connecting with people who don’t think like you do – a powerful team building tool!

  • Communicating with Your Whole Brain

    Are there people in your world that drive you crazy? Would you like to be able to better connect and understand your colleagues, clients – even your family? Then think and communicate with your whole brain! In this fun, highly interactive workshop, we’ll explore how to communicate using Whole Brain® Thinking and craft whole-brained messages. You’ll gain an awareness of how you like to think and communicate and, even more importantly, understand and appreciate how others think and communicate!

  • Writing Proposals with Your Whole Brain

    What if the content in your proposal spoke to your clients’ different preferences and thinking styles? Wouldn’t that be helpful to your reader? Welcome to the power of writing with your whole brain! HBDI’s Whole Brain® Thinking helps us understand how people prefer to think, process information and communicate. In this interactive workshop, we’ll learn how to use Whole Brain® Thinking to craft proposals that will help your readers get your message and help them make decisions that are right for them.

  • Then What Happened? How to Create a "Lessons Learned" Story

    It’s inevitable. Whether it’s in the “invitation to the shortlist” questions or in the Q&A portion of the interview, a client is bound to ask about “lessons learned.” Learn how to help your team craft short stories about their experiences that not only answer the question but let the personality and smarts of your team shine through.

  • Marketing with Your Whole Brain

    Successful firms are finding new ways to capitalize on their talent, connect with their prospects, and satisfy their clients. To optimize these areas, you and your team should be applying Whole Brain® Thinking to your marketing efforts. You’ll see the benefits of thinking in your own style, start to recognize and appreciate the cognitive diversity in your firm, and learn how to craft a marketing message that speaks directly to your targeted audience’s thinking preferences.

  • Leading with Your Whole Brain

    At some point in our lives, we’ve each been shaped by an exceptional leader – a teacher, coach or boss who helped us achieve more than we thought possible. Most likely, that great leader was also a great communicator. In this highly interactive workshop, you’ll learn to communicate using Whole Brain® Thinking and craft whole-brained messages. We’ll explore what you’re saying (and how you’re saying it) to help you better communicate with your team.

  • Q&A The Big Bold Way

    These days, a shortlist presentation is often won or lost during Q&A. Shoot, sometimes the whole presentation is nothing but 45 minutes of Q&A! Your teams need to be prepared to listen, think fast, and share their stories with personal, positive, passion. This workshop uses improvisation techniques to help you do just that!

  • Welcome to Coach U

    We begin by laying a quick foundation of The Human Connection® – how do you equip your team to become more comfortable and connect with their audience? Then, we share our presentation preparation process, so you’ll have a plan to tackle your sales or shortlist presentation. Next, we explore how to present as a team – an untapped weapon in presentations today. Finally, we cover how to unlock a presenter’s freedom by coaching them from the “inside out.”
