Discover the Secrets of Effective Communication

Communication is one of the biggest challenges in the workplace.

Communication is one of the biggest challenges at home.

Communication is one of the biggest challenges everywhere.

Join us on September 24 and find out why; and what you can do to become an effective communicator. Communication is the cornerstone of all relationships. We rely on strong relationships to have our businesses run effectively and to have harmony in our personal lives. When we do not communicate well, this leads to misunderstandings and broken trust. It affects our ability to get our work done well, timely and effectively.

Good communication affects the bottom line. It facilitates collaborative and enjoyable relationships.

There is a simple way to improve your communication skills.

People communicate in four basic “styles.” Do you know what they are?

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn about your own “style” and how you are perceived by others, often unintentionally
  • Learn to discern the styles of others
  • Learn the strengths and challenges of each style
  • Learn the best & most effective ways to communicate with each of the styles

“One of the most fun and informative trainings I’ve done.”
–Tracy Stinson, General Counsel, local government agency.

“Cami McLaren’s Styles of Communication workshop is great a tool to improve both professional and personal communication, as well as great for individual growth and improving team communication. Learning how to listen or speak based on knowing the communication style of the person you are communicating with is invaluable. Styles of Communication will teach you how to identify your own communication style, as well as spot the style of others. Knowing this simple fact will undoubtedly improve your communication skills with clients, colleagues, family and friends.”

Transformative Coaching Essentials

What is a Professional Coach?

The designation of “Professional Coach” means you have met the McLaren Coaching criteria of skills and ways of being a professional coach. Many people take coaching into different disciplines and so the designation is flexible. For example, you might be a Professional Business Coach, a Professional Health Coach, or a Professional Finance Coach.

What are the skills and ways of being a professional coach?

Skills are numerous. We teach the ICF (International Coach Federation) Core Competencies (https://coachfederation.org/core-competencies), and much more. We teach NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), listening skills, and the skills of supporting people in moving forward in their lives; in getting what they most want to have.

“Ways of being” is less specific than “skills” and is the most essential piece in becoming a professional coach. A way of being is a presence, a place to start, how people experience you, your level of openness and accessibility, your ability to meet people where they are and stand in that place with them. This is what supports people in moving forward. This is also an important distinction in our training.

What “kind” of coach training is this?

We teach results-based coaching. This means we coach to the end goal of getting what your clients really want. We coach commitment. The feedback we receive is that we are straightforward and effective in supporting people in creating tangible and specific results, whether those be business results, financial results, relationship results, health results, or anything else.
