Lunch & Learn: Benefit From What Your Clients AREN'T Saying

  • VenturePad 1020 B Street San Rafael, CA, 94901 United States (map)

Understanding what isn’t being said may be key to your success.

We’ve all walked away from conversations with our clients or co-workers believing we were on the same page, only to watch the relationship breakdown over different expectations. How much wasted project time and heartbreak would you have saved if you knew what they were really thinking?

Knowing how to pick up the subtle cues that can save important business relationships is a skill that’s rarely taught and one of the easiest to learn.

My unique "W.A.I.T.—Why Am I Talking?" method is perfect for any business professional that wants to fine-tune effective communication with their client or coworkers.

You will walk away with the basics of active listening—knowing how to listen, how to summarize, knowing the right questions to ask, and how and when to ask them.

“The W.A.I.T. experience empowered me through principles that are simple and easy to apply both personally and professionally.”
C. Nelson, Cyan Design Studio
