Communicating with Intent - greyzone's Signature Talk

Your Words, Your Outcomes

When we’re not careful with our word choices, tone and control of our story, we can find ourselves in a field peppered with communication landmines. Whether it’s making assumptions, oversharing with too much backstory, or believing that a wish will be understood as an ask, we are often confounded by the lack of positive results from our communications. Bringing awareness to the importance of word choice, tone and controlling our stories all go a long way to getting the outcomes we desire: be that a promotion, an overseas assignment or a coveted project. Key takeaways include:

  • How to edit emails and verbal communication to limit apologies
  • Test your assumptions
  • Understand how backstory waters down your ask
  • Having the courage to ask leads to credibility
  • Power tips for outstanding communication
Managing the Brand Called YOU!
Branding isn’t just for companies. We all have a personal brand. Is your brand promoting your career growth or holding you back from opportunity? In this talk you’ll gain an understanding of what it means to have a brand and how you can maximize yours for success. From curating a tailored social media presence, to reviewing your visual story, we’ll explore all the ways our brand is determined. You’ll walk away with the tools to understand your own brand better, and ideas on how to make modifications to show up the way you want to be seen. Optional 360 survey available.
Be Bold, Not Bossy

Leading with Humility, Tact and Assertiveness to Rock Your Career

greyzone’s concept of The Boldness Barometer is explored in depth, understanding what it means to be too passive vs. too aggressive. From the way we communicate, to our body language to our overall actions, everything we’re doing (or not doing) is building our brand. Too often we fail to engage for fear of coming on too strong. Balance on the barometer can be found when we blend Humility, Tact and Assertiveness. Participants will learn actionable steps to confidently manage their career and position themselves for success in their organizations. You will learn:

  • How to find balance on The Boldness Barometer
  • Understand how Passive Language dilutes our brand
  • Gain powerful tips on Managing Up and leading with Assertiveness
  • Explore negotiation tactics

We can scale our presentations to meet your budget and audience. From an online webinar or one-hour talk to a half-day or full-day workshop. Contact us to find out what we can do for you.

I cannot begin to express how well this went and how great your information was. I think this is going to be a great jumping off point for us as a company to function better as individuals and as one team together. I believe your presentation will be a kickstart to a lot of good conversation around the office.
