Speaking Themes based on principles of Communichology™:
Communication Leadership Innovation Collaboration

Premise: Most people overestimate the effectiveness of their communication skills, and underestimate their need to improve in these areas personally and professionally. By better understanding and then executing the principles of Communichology™, we all have the ability to strategically manage our moments of interaction and output to influence our best outcomes.

Communichology™ is where human communication and psychology collide. It’s a dynamic discipline studying the artistic and scientific intersection of influential communication skills and persuasive psychology strategies. Communichologists talk shiFt™, and teach how compelling communication skills married with provocative psychological insights, produce relevant real-world results. Communichology™ works in tandem to tap into on the psychology underneath our communication. For every what there’s a why we need to attempt to understand. This new understanding affords us opportunities we wouldn’t otherwise have.

Talking shiFt™ is about challenging what’s possible; to choose new paths; to embrace and empower change; to shift the conversation; to shift our perspectives; to “see” the world differently. Tom teaches Lifestyle Initiative Training techniques and strategies to seek new and different vantage points to view the world through different lenses. Doing this helps us recognize the opportunities we all have, every day to make a positive difference. Opportunities to shift our thinking, to ultimately shift our behaviors, in the moment, for better outcomes.

All keynote sessions and topics are designed to work well as Kick-Offs for Best Corporate Events programs. Sessions can be customized to fit the specific needs and goals. Tom is available for consultation to ensure session content maximizes your organization’s needs.
