Testimonials

"The results after only half of our groups had completed the training were quite evident. Approaches to communications were more deliberate, consistent and professional as participants learned about their personality traits and how that affected their communication style. The practical application of techniques and the tools provided in the sessions have been used in various situations in the workplace from speaking to peers, communicating with the boss, to dealing with managing performance.

One of the benefits for senior management is the ability to coach supervisors through situations with a consistent approach and common language. After attending your sessions, we had several supervisors recommend that we send some of our union local and we see the same great results."

"What I found particularly unique about the course is that it is not "cookie cutter" training: it recognizes that each individual has his or her own distinctive communication challenges and addresses them.

With staff throughout an organization using these skills, an organization can be more effective - with fewer misunderstandings. Employees can be more productive and leaders with solid communication skills can successfully guide an organization to achieve corporate goals."

"I found that the course met all my expectations. As a manager of a new section, I was required to build a team consisting of three different groups, each with different mandates and experience. For our section to succeed, we had to learn to communicate well with each other on all levels.

I am finding that the communication among staff is becoming more open and issues are dealt with using a direct , adult-like approach. Furthermore, it seems that unionized staff is becoming much more receptive to corrective feedback since they understand better its purpose.

I highly recommend this communication course to other groups. Although the course is designed for individuals in a leadership role, I found that this training is a powerful tool for anyone and the communication strategies learned can be applied to both work and personal life."

"Not only were the concepts invaluable, the atmosphere you created was superb. I can't say that any other training has been enjoyed so much.

I was also impressed by the format. With short sessions, focusing on the material and tuning out nagging work demands was possible. I saw improvements being made between the weeks between the sessions, and it was impressive to see the skills being used so quickly. I noticed participants overcoming their personal obstacles, like being able to assert themselves or being more comfortable giving appropriate feedback."

"The concepts are logical, easy to understand, and benefit all levels of management; even managers considered to have already solid communication skills. With entire management teams developing and applying this skillset, I foresee more productive organizations and much more satisfied staff, which should enhance profitability. Being able to have communication flowing more easily up, down, and across hierarchies should break down barriers and build a team-based spirit.

I would not hesitate to recommend Communication Dynamix to any company."

"Taught in a clear and dynamic way, the program gave me powerful insights into communication and human interactions. I learned how to cut through barriers to communication and get my points across clearly.

I was able to apply the techniques I learned immediately in my workplace. I've become better at expressing myself clearly and have become a more effective asset to my company. As well, my increased confidence in my exchanges with co-workers leaves me with more energy to be creative in my job.

The skills I learned from the course have also affected my personal life. They have helped me to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of what people are trying to say.

I highly recommend this program to all managers and leaders. However, any employee would benefit from this training and would become more of an asset to his or her company."

"My level of professionalism has greatly improved, when interacting with clients and suppliers. I can get directly to the point of my discussions and maintain it with out having to hide behind sarcasm and subtle hints. Before the course, I would experienced tremendous discomfort when dealing with uncomfortable situations or discussions, now I have no issues being completely open, honest and direct. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
