Effective Communication Training for Workplaces | Conflict Resolution Specialist

I’m Shlomo Slatkin, Founder of Slatkin Communications, a division of The Marriage Restoration Project

Toxic couples and toxic workplaces share the same problems.

Poor Communication
Lack of feeling safe
Shame and blame
Diagnoses run wild
Opposing values

Any others I didn’t mention?

You can’t afford to continue working in an environment that is toxic. But you also can’t just pickup and leave, thinking it will be better somewhere else.

Why’s that?

Because us humans come with baggage! We take that baggage with us into future relationships- be them work relationships or committed relationships.

Whether you’re a founder, CEO, professional, customer, or colleague- you’re going to need to tackle the issues causing the toxic environment at it’s root in order for things to improve there and elsewhere. That starts with some awareness.

Become a Conscious Colleague™

Cleaning out your toxic work environment begins with consciousness.

  • More awareness about relationships.
  • More awareness of how our brains work.
  • More awareness of triggers left over from impactful events.

If you’d like to start enjoying a work environment that is peaceful, productive, connected, and profitable, you’ll want to bring us out to your workplace!

Communication Training for CEOs & Leaders

Leadership starts at the top. The way you treat your employees creates a company culture and determines their ability to be productive. We recognize the challenges that come with this great responsibility. You’re passionate about your company and you’re not always sure how to convey that passion in a way that can most easily be received. You need to be a good communicator and may not always know how especially with difficult personalities, turnover, or vast diversity in the workplace. We simplify all of that and give you concrete tools for communication so that your employees are more dedicated and innovative, increasing the bottom line as a result.

Team Building and Communication

For any team to successfully work together, it’s crucial to be able to communicate in the most effective way. In a workplace that consists of many personalities, you won’t always see eye-to-eye or think the same way so it’s imperative that you learn how to use each other’s differences as strengths. Strengthening a team takes thought and we’ve got that built in to our offerings.

Customer Service Training

Your customers want to be validated. Most purchases are emotional. Developing connection with your clients can make all the difference between getting the sale and not.

Customers want to work with people that hear, validate, and empathize with their concerns and questions. 10x your customer retention with these foundational skill sets that we model.

Family Businesses Challenges

Because it’s more than just a business.

Business relationships are complicated enough to maneuver. Throw in family and you’ve got your work cut out for you! Don’t let family dynamics or underlying drama impact your business. Learn to effectively manage your personal life and history with related business partners so you can maximize your cooperation and profits.

How does your workplace rank with regards to healthy relationships and safe communication?

You probably know by now that if communication isn’t working at home or at work, that very important metrics are going to be adversely affected- like hiring, employee retention, profits.

 Good Communication Matters.

Our team can help you foster healthier relationships at work, starting with training in effective communication, consulting with small to large groups of leaders and employees through hands-on demonstrations, so that you can focus on what you do best.

Improving Employee Productivity & Retention with Communication Training

  • Eliminate Win/Lose Thinking

Fostering a group atmosphere of sharing and contributing rather than debating to pick a winner doesn’t always come naturally, but is an important step towards creating a healthier corporate culture. Good communication in the workplace matters. Harvard Business Review cites the 2009 Wyatt study that shows that companies that communicate effectively had a 47% higher return to shareholders over a five-year period (mid-2004 to mid-2009). Companies that talk the way employees want to hear, bosses that do a good job listening, and customers that feel validated and understood are the ones will be more valuable than companies that don’t.

  • Assume that all persons are valid and “make sense” before they speak

Anti-thetical to this current age of black/white thinking and divisive politics, knowing that every person comes with their own unique story , that in their world, “they make sense”, whether or not you agree with them, is one of the concepts we impart so that all of your interactions others remain connected and fruitful.

  • Respecting others the way you yourself want to be treated and talked to

No one deserves to be shamed or blamed. This can be hard if you weren’t modeled healthy communication previously in your life. We will show you how so it becomes second nature. You can’t effectively work together if there is discord in the company. If communication flows and is open where people feel like they can share and be heard and understood, everyone benefits. Your employees will want to come to work and find ways to contribute because it’s a pleasant place to be! They will be more creative and productive.

  • Detoxing negativity, generalizations, and “Master talk”

There’s always someone at the office that assumes “everyone” agrees with them. They can have toxic energy and this needs to be nipped in the bud before it spreads to the rest of the team.

  • Validation of others’ point of view

Expressing curiosity, empathy, and validation show another that you truly get them and hear them. These days, employees want to be heard, understood, and valued for a job well done. Good leaders know that, providing a culture of openness and interpersonal relationships will create an environment and culture of trust and the ability to shed dysfunction and the likelihood of people misunderstanding each other, thus providing a true ability to communicate amongst others at every level of the organization.
