What conversational knots hold your team back? 

Any distrust, resentment or resignation brewing?

How often does your team celebrate even small wins?  
 Truth be told, accomplishment and self-awareness are two different beasts. You can get there in style or fraught with interpersonal pain. Do it with less collateral damage.  

No one knows a team's culture like people on it. While business requires speed catching your breathe to upgrade how you communicate is the game changer. There's no stopping a team in sync with each other.


Discover “generative communication": design thinking frameworks of user friendly, uncomplicated strategies, insightful prompts and creative disruptions to engender
“We are in this together” - the back-story of excellent results.

Own your quirky, geeky, distinctive communication style.  

Amidst intensity of action, calibrate when to step up/step back. Provide talented introverts ways to share their great ideas or present to peers, colleagues and clients honoring authentic voice.

Learn to read a room. See how to avoid potential communication de-railers to
meet conversational challenges as they arise.

Generate commitment to the larger vision and value small wins. Change someone’s mind. Have conversations you never imagined possible. Contribute to someone’s growth.

Walk through my original “Yaven 360”: a  proven step-by-step framework for giving  and receiving respectful, honest feedback so it lands while building trust.  

Valuing effective team communication is a business imperative & makes the sky the limit.
2. tHE strengths HUB 
What makes the diverse talent on your team tick?

In what frequency/mood do people work?

Amidst acceleration do people have specific ways to course correct
on the fly – based in their unique strengths?  
Squandering a group's strength happens more than you think - a sure formula
to drain focus & power. People stall when they need to streamline. 
Sometimes you have to practice a long time to play your best self. The Strengths hub cuts that time short. I accelerate individuals & teams relating to one another with agility, taking work to a whole new dimension.

Take preventive care. While its great to know your strengths the rubber hits the road when you can identify how you are likely to get in your own way (we all do) and what to do about it.

Create granular understanding of diverse individual & team strengths. More on this from my forthcoming book “Unmanaging”.

Discover the trigger behaviors associated with everyone’s strengths to dial back anxiety – and produce less of it around you. Leverage productive stress & limit the unproductive kind.

Feed your artisan tendencies & balance strategy and empathy. Act with awareness when it comes to hidden strengths - pro or con.  

We are our most optimistic, motivated and curious having clear ways to effortlessly embody what we are great at so we get it done on time, at budget and with well-being intact.
