Clarity . . . Through a Glass, Brightly
Thursday, 30 July 2015 from 1:15 pm to 2:00 pm (AEST)
The business of clarity and the clarity of business
Can you, in a sentence of 15 words or less, communicate the essence—the absolute why—of you or your business?
If so, do you have a clear intention for communicating it to captivate your audience – those people who most need to hear what you have to say? Or for using story telling to make a quantum leap in your influence?
What about truth? How clear are you on its power as the mortar between your intention and other people?
When a business conversation has gone off the rails, are you clear on how to deal with it effectively?
Do you have clarity around your best solution and know exactly how to position it online?
Or do you sometimes flounder in a sea of opacity; not quite able to define why and how you do what you do, for whom, or what your intention is for communicating it clearly for a successful outcome?
Whet your appetite for clarity
In this free webinar series, six clarity experts will each take you through one of six sides to clarity. Think of it as a hexagon of lucidity condensed into six mind-stimulating sessions.
To help you navigate through a world of crazy clutter and confusion, Sandy McDonald will draw from each of our facilitators three mindful tools to do the work of clarity and implement effective long lasting change in your business.
The presenters aim is simple. To serve, not to sell. And to both help and inspire you to build a better business for a better world.
