Workshops

KCI offers highly tailored communication workshops. Our clients find value in customizing KCI training programs based upon the participants in attendance. This approach ensures that you'll receive the level of training that matches the skill levels of the participants. A unique feature of KCI workshops is the blending of an online prework/postwork component that allows participants to familiarize themselves with the program expectations. It helps them to manage training day stress, and ensures that valuable time with the PhD facilitators can be used more effectively.

Our workshops focus on the use of highly-effective, repeatable processes that produce organized, well-developed presentations, written communications, and conflict management skills.

Presentation Workshops

Our award-winning Listener-Based Presentation  programs have been designed to fulfill a variety of specific communication needs including:

Focusing On Critical Communication Points
 - What do you want audiences to know.
 - What do you want them to do.
 - What may happen if action is not taken.

When audiences know the answers to the above questions they are more likely to take the action the presenter advocates. When the audience is overwhelmed with meaningless data, they do nothing; and your presentation time and effort is wasted. The audience may also feel you've wasted their resources.

KCI Presentation Skills Workshops can include 1, and 2 day instructor-led, onsite programs with topics that include:

Briefing Techniques

Executive Communications Coaching

Leadership & Strategic Communications

Listener-Based Presentations

Technical Presentations
