Program 4: “The Coach Approach To Successful Communication”
Research indicates $250 million dollars is wasted every day because of poor communication skills. This reveals the fact that business professionals are so focused on developing industry expertise they don’t learn how to communicate their expertise. Effective communication is a skill vital to success in every profession.
This program is designed to show you how take your communication challenges and turn them into wins using The Coach Approach. The most successful coaches are first effective communicators, the most successful business professionals mirror this. In this program Coach Bru shares with you what the best do better than the rest when it comes to communication. Topics include communication barriers and how best to tackle communication challenges when giving feedback, asking effective questions, active listening, emotional contagion and the power of positive energy.
The program also addresses strategies for crafting listener-centric messages, how to be heard in today’s over-communicated market, and the use of stories to help deliver your message in the most impactful way.
Strategies like Bru’s 3 second rule, the opener, the 30 second drill and the listening ladder will help you increase your market value and win more business.
Program 5: “Bullet Proof: Gaining And Maintaining Your Confidence”
Based on Coach Bru’s forthcoming book, confidence is the one thing that affects all things when it comes to performance. There’s a feeling that’s shared by peak performers, winning teams and top sales professionals; it’s the feeling that you’re bullet proof. Nothing can stop you; not past failures, mistakes, the economy or the competition. These are nothing more than speed bumps on the road to victory and personal fulfillment.
Elite performers can consistently harness that elusive “in-the-zone” feeling of absolute confidence in order to perform their best when it matters most. This is what allows them to consistently deliver results at a high level, enjoy what they do and actualize their greatest potential.
It’s a competitive world we live in, not everyone around you want to see your succeed. Confidence is about being comfortable in your own skin in any situation. It’s also about having the strength in your belief system so you can make difficult decisions which while they may frustrate or offend others, help you advance towards your goals. Confidence is a feeling and when you ask any elite performer how they felt when they were performing at their best they all report that it is as if the game slowed down. This is because they feel confident and in control.
Conversely when you ask them what they attribute poor performance or a slump to, they will tell you “I didn’t feel confident”. They lost the feeling of confidence and their performance eroded almost instantly. It’s at this point that your feelings turn into thoughts. You think too much and those unproductive thoughts hold your confidence hostage and you lose trust in the process that previously worked for you.
This program will teach you how to consistently gain and maintain your confidence in order to achieve massive levels of success you previously thought were unattainable.
Program 6: “Peak Performance For Corporate Athletes”
Just as an elite athlete must master the mental game of their sport, so must the corporate athlete master the mental game in the sport of business. This innovative and powerful program teaches executives strategies to “get in the zone” and perform their best when the pressure is on. Business professionals will learn how to expand their capacity and improve their productivity by tapping into the power of performance rituals. Participants will gain a new perspective on how to build mental toughness, employ laser focus and become more resilient. Strategies to perform at a superior level by managing and replenishing personal energy will enable participants to achieve a heightened level of workplace engagement and job satisfaction.
