Other Topics

Communication Skills for Effectively Leading Change

A business cannot survive without effective communication – it is something we do all day, every day, in many different ways. In fact, we each have a preferred way of taking in and processing information. Understanding these preferences opens the door to improved communication, leadership, management, problem solving, decision making and other aspects of personal/professional development and highlights the value that diversity brings to a business and a team.

Through interactive and dynamic team exercises and discussions, this valuable workshop utilizes the Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) to teach people the “Whole Brain Model” of thinking, helping them gain greater insight into how individuals and groups think, communicate and work.  This enables them to interact with co-workers in a way that will motivate action, drive out fear, and create lasting bonds, resulting in more efficient communications, better teamwork and stronger alignment around shared goals and objectives.

The HBDI is a proven analytic framework that is based on over twenty years of research. It has been successfully used by many organizations to reduce costs, promote effective problem solving, and develop productive teams.

As the organizer for a leadership training for a diverse group of educators facing a broad spectrum of challenges, I knew that finding one speaker or program that would resonate with everyone in the group would be difficult. Luckily, I found Mike Jaffe. Mike did an incredible job of inspiring a diverse group of educators. His ability to relate his messages and the topics he was presenting to each of our individual jobs, and ultimately, back to our students was remarkable. As the organizer of the event, working with The Mike Jaffe Company could not have been easier, and as an attendee of the event, it could not have been more rewarding. Thank You Mike!”
