    Successful leaders motivate and inspire people with clear communication. Leading organizations promote discipline, accountability and strategic alignment with clear communication. Market leaders with winning sales strategies rely on clear communication. In this two hour workshop, participants will identify where communication breaks down and be given effective techniques to build relationships more effectively, increase sales and decrease costly project errors.

    • How strategic listening is essential to business success
    • How to alter personal behaviours to communicate more effectively
    • How to use listening techniques that ensure clarity and understanding
    • The impact and cost of poor communication

    Renée Safrata, Vivo CIC, Facilitator, Author

    Often called the "soft" side of business, Renée Safrata  specializes in the "people" side of business. Businesses, teams and people constantly grow and change. Business objectives and skill sets shift. Yet, it’s the people issues – change management, emotional intelligence, leadership, communication, alignment, productivity, stakeholder and employee engagement – that have the most dramatic influence on results.

    After graduating from Ryerson with an interior design degree and obtaining her NCIDQ certificate, Renée set up a boutique interior design  firm specializing in retail, particularly big-box retail environments. After eleven years, Renée shifted careers to consult CEOs, COOs, executive management teams, senior teams, associations and entrepreneurs to build more focused, engaged and results-oriented teams. With a total of 26 years of consulting experience, Renée has launched Vivo Team’s web platform.
