Pilots are trained to do three things if something should go wrong: they aviate (fly the plane), then they navigate (make sure they know where they are and where they are heading) and finally they communicate (with the crew and the traffic controlers on the ground).

When it comes to working within high performance teams, this order inverts. If you want to achieve results on a high level of performance, you firstly need to know how and when to communicate clearly and effectively. Secondly, you need to navigate your goals and objectives, and finally you need to get the things done (aviate). The challenge is that clear and effective communication is the most difficult (opposed to the task of the pilot) task of the three. Communication is a highly demanding task within teams, management or leadership and is more arduous than it is to get the job done. Many projects fail because of poor communication.

We assume communication comes naturally. In essence it may, but in practice it does not. We are wired to communicate in the way which we prefer to be communicated to. Communication can therefore be the key to success, or the reason for failure as each individual has a different preference for communicating. If you understand that communication is not only in the sending of information, but also in the receiving of it, you will be astounded with the immediate results you get at work, at home or in relationships.

In this workshop we build on the knowledge of your unique patterns of thought, feeling and behaviour from a communication perspective. If there is one workshop that guarantees superior teamwork and higher engagement, it is this one.
