PORTFOLIO – 4 Ways We Can Work Together

#1 – Effective Communication (TRAINING)

communication training for managers, leaders and team members
effective communication trainingEven when you have the right people, the wrong language can destroy your team. And that issue will always undermine your business.

Effective Communication Training (ECT) teaches the five core areas of communication that are always impacting your brand. ECT is tailored to the audience, because where managers need to focus their training may be different from where their team members’ focus.

Clients use these customized sessions to improve their team dynamics by developing and updating their war chest for stronger and more effective business communication. I have been brought in to train large groups as well as work one-on-one with managers and CEOs.

“Thank you again for a great engaging day.  You rocked!  People are still thanking me.” — Stefania

“I related with everything. Engaging. Working in Collections Department. I use many, if not all of what you shared. Thank you so much!” — AutoTrader

I offer three core types of Effective Communication Training Sessions. Based off of these we will use our initial phone consultation to tailor the program for your team.

  • Effective Communication 101 – Leadership From the Bottom Up: for direct care staff,
  • Effective Communication 201 – Leadership From the Middle: for managers,
  • Effective Communication 301 – Leadership from the Top Down: for top level executives and owners

#2 — Strategy Blocks (CONSULTING)

a sounding board to help you clarify your core marketing message
strategy blocks2Not only does your personal brand have a message but every product that you launch and every event that you offer does too. Each part of your business is message driven.

Strategy Blocks are private consulting sessions. Clients use these blocks as a way to voice ideas, receive honest feedback and in the process gain clarity about next steps.

“Thank you! Thank you! This was a wonderful experience! Working with you helped me to essence out so much of what has been swirling around in my mind. Now, I feel a sense of continuity and alignment…perfect for reworking my marketing language.Thank you Jamillah for being a fun & fabulous co-creator!” – Barb Hammer, Founder of Produce Momentum

Here’s a short list of how others have used Strategy Blocks:

  • A designer used this process to get clear about their next steps in expanding their 6 figure brand.
  • A business and sales trainer used her strategy blocks to develop a big picture marketing strategy for an upcoming product launch.
  • An author used a series of strategy blocks to nail a bio that resonated with him and to create a few easy to remember media soundbites.
