TRAINING AND SERVICES

Customized to achieve your goals

Simplify Communication Training

The process:

1. We meet to discuss your goals and create a training agenda that focuses on your priorities.

2. We choose examples from your own communication to use for practice.

3. You participate in anywhere from one 90-minute training to quarterly 2-hour trainings. 

Sample agenda, including engaging discussions and activities:

  • Discuss impacts on trust, access, efficiency, inclusion, recruitment, retention, and more.

  • Learn 5-10 skills to simplify writing, speaking, or both.

  • Practice skills in small groups using communication for your organization. 

  • Learn to organize and reduce writing by 20-50% without removing content or “dumbing down”.

  • Build awareness of language exclusion, power, and privilege.

  • Use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to make writing more accessible.

  • Discuss accountability and ways to support each other.

Training is in person or online...and always engaging!

Expectations

To work with me requires 3 things:

  1. Humility. You must recognize that you can do better and dedicate a few hours to training. 

  2. Empathy. You must be aware of what your audiences want and need.

  3. Practice. The skills are not brain surgery, but like all skills they require practice. 

 

Having fun is a bonus, and I’ll make sure the training is challenging and fun.

If this sounds like you, let’s talk!
