I’m very pleased to hear that the theme for this year’s Learning at Work Week is ‘Connect’, as connecting in the workplace is a subject close to my heart.  I’ve actually got the word ‘Connection’ on the back of my business card (along with ‘Communicate’, ‘Confidence’ and ‘Commitment’).


Building rapport


As a coach, I have to establish a connection with my clients very quickly.  It’s important that we have a rapport so that they feel comfortable working with me and trust me to guide them to where they need to be.  Once we have that connection, we can really make headway with the coaching process to move forward to the desired result – whatever that may be, whether gaining the confidence to go for the promotion they desire, taking the leap of faith into setting up their own business or transforming their lifestyle into the one they’ve dreamed about for so long.


Your communication style


Helping clients to connect successfully in business is also a key part of what I do.  I work with clients on connecting with themselves – understanding their personality traits – and connecting with others, looking at how they interact with colleagues, employers and customers.  Identifying your communication style – the way you connect and deal with people and tasks – can be incredibly empowering.  It’s a powerful tool that can build your confidence, help improve work and personal relationships and ultimately maximise your potential.  It’s pretty powerful stuff!

There will be lots of connecting in my June workshop – Business Energetics.  I’ll be using an interactive approach to focus on connecting with and using your own intuitive skills to understand who you are and what you want, as well as learning how to create that in your businesses.
