"TALLsmall Production’s group training was truly eye opening! They showed how many gestures, key words, and lack of eye contact can exponentially hinder your ability to engage with whomever you’re speaking to. Within our group training they gave us tips and tricks on how to catch yourself doing these things but most importantly, how to stop! Realizing these habits you were never aware you may have had, will skyrocket your ability to engage anyone from a stranger on the street to an entire audience. If you want to succeed whether individually or within your company, please call these two!! They were hilarious, well engaged, informative, and extremely well versed in every aspect of growth. Highly recommend!!! " -Ashley Hoover
All workshops are offered virtually and will be in person as soon as social distancing is lifted.
Launch Class: Communicate with Charisma & Clarity:
The fastest way to become a more effective communicator and public speaker — whether standing in a front of a crowd, with one person in a meeting or serving clients — is to get rid of filler words (ah, um, like, you know, so....), to purge other weak phrases (I was just thinking, honestly, I will try), and to harness stronger body language. Body language is up to 70% of communication. Your group will participate in a series of entertaining games designed to strengthen wording and to better understand body language.
Self Talk & Communication:
The villain that far too often holds us back or throws hurdles in our path is not someone else. It is our own self talk – that internal critic that tells us “I’m not good enough.” “I can’t possibly ask for what I deserve.” “It will not happen.” In this interactive workshop, we will lead participants through activities to take control of their self-talk, to learn how to turn off the negative voice when it appears and how to use self-talk to reach your goals.
Present with Presence and Leadership
We will walk everyone through our TALLsmall way of building an effective presentation, utilizing storytelling, conversational wording and a three bullet style. We will reveal tips on how to “Get out of the Gate,” how to pivot when needed and how to have a strong ending.
Write Emails that Get Read & Get Results:
Learn how to compose emails in a direct, friendly standout style, starting with an effective subject line. We’ll show you how to cut the length in half and double the impact. Find out what words and phrases to avoid, ways to say “no” without negativity and how to create interest to lead to an in-person meeting. We’ll rewrite weak emails as a group and then challenge everyone to work in smaller teams to answer three email scenarios, followed by feedback.
Network to get Noticed:
Participants will leave with a standout, authentic elevator introduction that is built from what drives each person in life. These intros are not memorized scripts, but rather will include keywords (specific to each person) that become the GPS points to navigate when delivering an introduction. We’ll also touch on easy-to-use strategies to transform conversations from surface chatter to meaningful engagements at networking and community events.
In this interactive makeover course, participants will learn how to tweak their LinkedIn profiles to have a magnetic storytelling style. We’ll use one person’s page at a time as an example and will make changes in real time. This workshop is as much about content as strategy on how to leverage LinkedIn to create and strengthen connections in the community.
Hurdling Organizational Obstacles & Improving Efficiency:
The idea of time management is outdated. Attention management is the strategy to keep control in a world where we are being inundated with new information and requests from multiple platforms.
We will guide your team through our process of shedding a lengthy to-do list and a classic office board cluttered with tasks and instead focus on three top priorities at a time. The result is increased efficiency, easier time tracking and a style that lends itself to single tasking over multi-task juggling. Plus, learn why we procrastinate and gain strategies to prevent it. Each person will make a commitment at the end of the session on what to Stop, Start, Continue and Change when it comes attention management.
