Write for Results

We send hundreds of emails a week. We rarely take the time to focus on how clear we were, if our tone was appropriate, whether we shared too many or too few details, or if the reader had to reread our email multiple times to understand what we were trying to say.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to simplify your writing for clarity and effectiveness. We’ll share best practices for writing concisely and you’ll discover how to best eliminate confusing words, unnecessary phrases, and words that contribute no meaning.

In the end, you will come away from this workshop with the ability to create a reader-oriented message that is concise, direct and effectively structured.

Failure. We’ve all been taught to worship success and avoid failure at all costs. But despite its stigma, failure is an inextricable part of leading companies, teams, and projects to success. The more ambitious and innovative our goals, the more inevitable that we will face failure along the way. As leaders, we must go beyond avoiding failure to helping our teams fail brilliantly.


In this workshop, we’ll help leaders redefine what failure is, and reimagine the vital role failure plays in fueling innovation, creativity, and progress. We’ll ask leaders to look inward, examining their own beliefs and points of view about failure.


Leaders will come away with strategies to fuel failing brilliantly cultures that empower team members to speak up, take risks and learn from mistakes.

Stakeholder alignment is a critical element in managing relationships throughout an organization.


In this workshop, we will teach you how to identify the key people that influence a career, and develop an action plan to turn them into your advocates. We examine effective strategies for packaging an “offer” to executives and other career stakeholders, and highlight steps you can take to continue amplifying your visibility and value throughout your organization.


In the end, you will have more confidence and tools at your disposal to engage with your stakeholders.
