Social Confidence Skills

Communication made easier by developing social confidence skills for people who are:

  • Quietly brilliant (aka introverts) …
    … and want their excellent contributions to be recognized and respected.
  • New to the workplace …
    … and a little uncertain of professional behavior.
  • Someone from a culture that values quiet reflection over extroversion …
    … and wants to learn how to be heard and valued.

    You can connect and communicate with a variety of people …
           … without becoming somebody you don’t like!

Why do some people just seem to be visible and appreciated – effortlessly – while other equally talented, smart and skilled people just fade into the background? Here are the social confidence skills essential to success – and learnable by everyone without being inauthentic.

You will find out how to:

  • Present yourself powerfully everywhere you go – without being uncomfortably bold
  • Connect with people on a meaningful level – and stay connected, even if you think you’re not good at small talk
  • Stay top-of-the mind with people you meet
  • Find and build a mentorship network
  • Use social media in asociable manner (Hint: it’s not about technology.)
  • Promote yourself painlessly with your everyday conversations – without bragging

Here’s what one partner in a law firm said:

Focused. Practical. Insightful. That accurately describes Lynette’s marketing presentation that I recently attended at the Bar Association of San Francisco. My time was well spent because – unlike countless other similar workshops – I left with practical insights on how to approach networking in a more targeted way, make meaningful connections, and develop a concrete follow up plan. Highly recommended.

Diversity and Inclusion Through Communication:

Helping People Connect and Communicate Across Differences

  • Are you and your managers:
  • Frustrated trying to motivate employees to work together for innovative solutions?
  • Surprised by mistakes that get made, when you thought the instructions were clear?
  • Disturbed that some talented, skilled employees don’t seem to participate in group processes?
  • Surprised to find that an employee is actually intimidated by you?
  • Astonished that important information fails to get shared because one employee is reluctant to approach another employee?

Fundamental differences in culture, gender, and temperament, such as introversion and extroversion, can leave people unable and even unwilling to connect –
because they don’t know how.

Behavior and communication styles cut across cultural boundaries.

The Consequences of not understanding human differences in communication?

  • Mistakes that cost time and money
  • Misunderstandings that slow down productivity
  • Conflict that can bring important activities to a halt
  • Inaccurate evaluations – of situations, of other people
  • Confrontation – increasing office tension, which affects wellness
  • High turnover, which impacts your bottom line

… and all because people are trying their best to communicate
but they don’t know how!

Mastery of these communication and behavioral patterns can help your employees:

  • Develop appreciation and understanding of different motivational and communication patterns– fueling innovation

  • Gain powerful language skills to communicate effectively and with good humor across conflicts– saving time and avoiding wasteful mistakes

  • Avoid costly misunderstandings – and raise productivity

  • Promote healthy workplace relationships – and positively affect costly turnover rates
