Beat Business Communication BREAKDOWN

Using Human Nature to Overcome the Interpersonal Time Suck and Cultivate Teams and Projects that FLOW

Five 90-minute Live/Recorded Classes: Tuesdays, May 16-June 13
10:00am San Francisco/1:00pm New York/7:00pm Amsterdam

“The material was so rich with things we can take back to our organizations and practice…”
G.M. – hospice administrator
“I came for the professional skills but I'm impressed by how much it applies to everything in my life.”
Z.M. ~ hospital board chair

This course starts in:

Disconnected = Lost Time & Money
Connected = Effective, Creative & Joyful

In five 90-minute sessions, you’ll learn how to become a skilled manager of your own reactions and emotions — and interact more powerfully in teams

Sometimes, even at work, things feel out of control. 

Different personalities and styles clash, and simple tasks turn into subtle and obvious dramas. 

It’s often not appreciated how even one drama like this can tear apart the working efficiency of a project — or even an organization.

Not to mention if you have five or ten dramas going on (especially in 10 hours — ha!).

Glossing over these issues can negatively impact everyone across an organization. 

Deadlines get missed… Tensions rise… Budgets drain…

And both management and employees suffer needlessly, getting more and more distracted while losing enthusiasm… All of which impacts their ability to work in coherent teams.

In these painful situations, it’s not uncommon for people to lose sleep or even turn to negative habits due to such work schisms.

Others might ‘tune out’ and try to focus on tasks, pretending it’s not happening…

But this leaves your teams with even less energy to take on the increasingly complicated tangle of issues that arise from even a single neglected misunderstanding or personality clash.

So are we simply doomed to suffer? 


Not only is it possible for organizations to thrive, but you can do it without an endless struggle.

Using material developed by therapist, author and Buddhist teacher Susan Gillis Chapman (“The Five Keys to Mindful Communication”), Executive Director Greg Heffron adapts this interpersonal material into a simple but powerful method for organizations of all kinds.

Using simple exercises, short talks and helpful models and metaphors, Heffron will guide you effortlessly though material that can otherwise feel out of reach.

And far from onerous, this class will be lively, informative and occasionally even (trigger warning) fun. 

In only five 90-minute classes, you will come away with:

  • a working strategy for the three fundamental states of communication
  • a plan for how to raise enthusiasm and trust in your organization
  • know when and how to back off from communication to wait for the best timing
  • how to draw boundaries and offer feedback in ways that actually penetrate
  • along with many other skills and insight

    Learn the Three Skills to Lose the Chaos and Gain Effectiveness

    Five Sessions: Sundays, May 16-June 13

    Each 90min session will begin at:

    10:00am Pacific/1:00pm Eastern/7:00pm CET

    This course is particularly important if you:

    ✅ Are stressed by office schisms

    ✅ See projects dragged down by conflict

    ✅ Find teams avoiding tasks due to personality conflicts

    ✅ Wish you could see “the big picture”

    ✅  Can’t understand what to do in complex meetings

    ✅  Don’t know how and when to address issues

    ✅  Want your teams and projects to thrive

    ✅ Want to focus more on getting things done and less on all the issues
