Frequently Asked Questions
How can I measure the value of the course for me and my team?
This is a great question and not always an easy one to answer, due to the fact that the different subject matters within the course tend to resonate for individuals in different ways. In short, we want to provide you with simple, yet powerful, skills that will last a lifetime and greatly influence the way you and your team move through your lives.
The course is designed to provide and strengthen your internal foundation and then build on this strong foundation to teach you and your team invaluable communication skills when interacting with others. We take an inside/out approach to masterful communication and believe that you’ll become increasingly more aware of how you move through your days and interact with others.
Things get even better when your entire team starts utilizing the Masterful Communication skill sets and seek to collaborate in ways that empower themselves and the individuals around them.
How long will I have access to this course?
Once you enter into the Art of Masterful Communication course and community, you will be granted lifetime access! How cool is that?! This includes access to updates and new video content releases.
How is the course content delivered?
The good news is that it’s not a boring slideshow with a monotone voice over it. Nope. Not at all! You get to watch me train on video with timely interactive slides, and highlighted key phrases that are strategically placed throughout each video. Our intention is to keep you fully engaged in and deliver the course in a way that gives you the best chance to retain and integrate the material into your life.
How was the content developed for this course?
The development of the course certainly didn’t happen overnight! In fact, the teachings from this course have been gathered from a lifelong commitment to studying leadership and communication and over 20+ years of working and studying with some of the most talented leaders and teams in the world. The content is also 100% original and full of a lot of blood, sweat and tears.
How will I receive the most benefit from the course?
The nice thing about the course is that you have access to all of the modules and can go through them at a pace that feels good for you. However, we strongly suggest that you start at the beginning and go in order. The course was carefully designed to be progressive and help you build on the previous lessons. If you choose to jump around, you may miss some of the key elements needed to fully grasp the new concepts being introduced. If you do choose to jump around, we encourage you to have fun with it and then watch it again in order. The more thorough you are in your approach, the more benefits you’ll receive from the program.
Who is The AOMC designed for?
AOMC is designed for managers and teams, or any individual seeking to drastically improve their communication and leadership skills. The content covered in the online course PLUS the Facebook mastermind group, PDF worksheets, monthly support calls and library of additional videos is collectively designed to drive the key communication practices and behaviors that lead to higher levels of performance, happiness, and confidence.
How will the AOMC course help me grow as an individual?
There are many ways in which the course will help you grow. Here’s 5 ways for you to consider. It will teach you to:
1. Align with your energy, obstacles and fears as preparation for unseen challenges that potentially lie ahead.
2. Learn to cultivate self-awareness and consciousness by slowing down and making thoughtful choices.
3. Demonstrate compassion for yourself as a way to bring more joy and meaning into your life.
4. Develop your listening and observation skills to help guide others to their own solutions.
5. Become a masterful communicator who knows how to appropriately ask for what you want.
How much time does it take to do the work in AOMC?
There are 12 video modules in the course and the average time is (8 min 53 seconds per video) . Each video’s lesson builds on the previous lesson and is designed to progressively move you towards becoming a masterful communicator. We encourage you to take your time moving through the course so that you’re able to both learn the material and more importantly, integrate the teachings into your daily life.
At the same time, We also encourage you to find a pace of moving through the course that both feels good and creates a sense of momentum for you. Remember, this is a progressive course and each lesson builds on the previous one, so you don’t want to wait too long to move onto the next lesson. It’s a delicate balance of taking your time and creating momentum, but I have no doubt that you’ll find that balance and a groove that works well for you. BEST PRACTICES: I suggest completing 1-2 lessons/week (including worksheets) and the entire course between 6-12 weeks.
Is the AOMC fun?
Of course it is! Learning is supposed to be fun and what’s cool about taking a course like this one, is that you can share the learnings with others. What’s even cooler, is that you will start to see significant changes in your life. You’ll begin to notice that you enter into conversations from a place of empowerment. You’ll start to embrace the notion that you have control of every conversation you enter into and if you take the course seriously, which I believe you will, you’ll start to become fearless in asking for the things that you want in your life. And the coolest part is that you’ll consistently start receiving those things!
