Compassionate Communication for Teams

Build the Necessary Relationships to Lead Your Team Through Highly Developed Communication Skills

Our primary definition of leadership is ‘Leadership is the capacity to develop and sustain multiple key relationships toward a common purpose.’ How do leaders communicate with others? What sets them aside from the average communicator? In this workshop, you will learn our time-tested strategies for Compassionate Communication that have been practiced and refined by thousands of executives around the world. You will learn how to refine your skills as a compassionate leader who makes others feel appreciated and respected, and also drives the initiative forward toward tremendous results. You will learn how to detect the ‘emotional receptor’ on your team and interact with them to keep your pulse on the common emotions your team members are experiencing.

You will also learn how to speak with a voice of authenticity, passion and conviction that inspires others. You will learn how to convey what you have to say within the context of what other people understand so every word counts. Finally, you will learn how to hold your anxiety when others disagree with you, build synergy whenever possible, and use Compassionate Communication to move the organization toward its mission and long-term goals. (Upon request, this workshop can include videotaped role-plays of your communication style for group feedback.)

    This was a 100% well-prepared, well-carried out, and well-received conference. I felt like the speakers knew exactly what our group's struggles were in maintaining and growing a nonprofit.

    The workshop has really helped me to identify my blind spots. After this conference I will have an inclusive decision-making style. I will avoid the ‘I know it all’ attitude.

    I love Tony’s passion for his topic! I also am very inspired by how he merges many cultural philosophies….I like how he makes leadership a ‘concrete’ idea…I wish the retreat had been longer.

    I believe that many of us learned a lot more than we anticipated we would. Tony’s workshops fueled conversations that continued through dinners, evening walks on the beach, and late night groups who gathered around wine and intense conversation....Tony helped us regain our focus and renew our passion and vision!

    The conference affected my philosophy of leadership. It taught me not to be a dictator, but to have vision and be a listener.

    Tony's use of examples and stories always help clarify/illustrate his points – and keep the discussion interesting. What I find most important, is that Tony includes stories from his personal experiences and feelings. To me, that adds a level of authenticity and vulnerability that I see as a commitment to teaching and generosity that is unique.

    I think Tony’s approach was good because we had the chance to discuss the different characteristics of a leader….He made us realize that we all have characteristics of leaders in us.

    I have worked with 5 national organizations and have had the opportunity to participate in several leadership development programs, all valuable, but none of which compared to the quality and depth of ECPNL...The quality of the presenters was second to none...I highly recommend this Program for nonprofit leaders at any stage of their career.

    I see myself continuing as an NGO leader because of my skills that I now have after this conference. Tony’s 15 Principles will help me in leading my organization to achieve its vision, mission and goals…This conference was really helpful and it should be organized again for other NGO Directors.
