with Diane Musho Hamilton

Master the skills that create strong relationships, thriving collaborations, and enliven everyone around you.

Over the past 5 years, we’ve trained hundreds of people around the world in the art and techniques of facilitative leadership and interpersonal dynamics. We’ve worked with leaders, entrepreneurs, mediators, psychologists, coaches, teachers, therapists and consultants—from their 20’s to their 70’s. All of whom want to refine and deepen the impact they can bring to the people they’re working with, because they know that their skills pave the way for what others can accomplish together.

Through all this, we've noticed a trend.

No matter how much power or authority you have, how much knowledge you’ve gained, or how many tools and methods you’ve studied—the impact you have will depend on the quality of your relationships and communication with others. Period. Without excellent communication and “people” skills, there’s always a limit on what other people are willing to do with you, and for you.
The good news is, these are human-to-human skills, and they can be learned and refined. In fact—they need to be.

Master the Skills that Bring People Together

Whether you’re driven by a desire to uplift the culture in your workplace, build deeper relationships with your clients, or simply bring more juice to your relationships at home, your communication skills are the starting point. They create the foundation for strong relationships that can handle the highs and lows along the way.

Together with acclaimed conflict resolution expert, mediator, and facilitator Diane Musho Hamilton, we’ve created an online training that focuses on the highest leverage skills that really transform the way people interact in their everyday lives.

This 9-module online training will help you develop the most significant attributes of wise, compassionate and effective communication:

  • Impact — Relate to others with clarity and presence. Compel more attention and wield more influence.
  • Empathy — Increase trust and understanding for more effective collaboration.
  • Confidence — Stay in relationship in the midst of tense and challenging conversations.
  • Perspective — Leverage diverse points of view for more sophisticated and creative discussions.
  • Insight — Get more quickly to the heart of what’s really going on.
  • Enjoyment — Keep discussions energized, enjoyable, and on point.

  • Growth — Create safe, energized spaces that accelerate growth and learning.

I loved how this course helps me hear unspoken messages of others and respond in ways that advance mutual understanding. This course is for people who want to learn what it takes to reconcile what may seem like opposing perspectives, between individuals, within groups and even within societies. You learn both by practicing and observing Diane Musho Hamilton, whom I consider to be a master in combining the intellectual, emotional and physical dimensions of communication.
