Communicating with IMPACT
Strategic/Tactical Leadership Communication Skills to Achieve Greater Results
In today’s high-tech world, good old-fashioned, verbal communication is not as good as it used to be. In this practical and engaging presentation, you will learn a practical six-step system to improve communication and get better results.
Patrick takes a look at how we lead, communicate, and present information because very often the message we send is not necessarily the same message others receive! Improved communication leads to improving your bottom line, enhancing relationships, building teams, gaining and retaining customers, and managing change, less stress, and better service. Learn how to reduce misunderstanding and communicate in less time.
You will learn the 6-Step IMPACT process to achieve greater results, based on Patrick’s book “Communicating with IMPACT“:
- I-Intention – Teach you how to craft a powerful intention statement
- M-Message – Learn how to create your message to achieve your intention and choose the best method for delivery
- P-Person – Identify and utilize the four fundamental behavioral styles to “personalize” the message
- A-Activate – Discuss skills to help you and the receiver stay focused and present and actively engage the receiver
- C-Clarify – Explore techniques to check for understanding
- T-Transform – Show you how to transform your words into actions to get greater results
These principles will provide you with the tools you need to lead more effectively, communicate more clearly, actively listen, present more powerfully, create deeper relationships, enhance your credibility, increase sales, achieve greater results, and positively impact the lives of others.
(Patrick will customize this program to your group’s needs and challenges.)

*Communicating with STYLE
Computers have manuals – Why Not People!
The most effective people are those who understand their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to adjust and improve. Once you understand yourself, then you can learn how to work more effectively in your environment.
This interactive and engaging program is designed to teach you the four personality styles (DISC) and how they affect everyday communications. You will learn which style you are, how to read other people’s styles and how you can adapt your communication style to improve relationships, increase productivity, build teams, manage change, and increase profits.
*Belief Driven Success
“Nothing changes until you change!” Every day the thoughts/beliefs we possess about our self/abilities and the world around us drive our behaviors and results. The good news is we can learn how to upgrade our beliefs to achieve even greater success. In this practical yet entertaining program, Patrick shares what successful people do well and techniques you can use immediately to increase your success.
You will learn practical techniques to: proactively create your future success; anticipate and overcome roadblocks; change your beliefs and behaviors to achieve extraordinary results; develop the courage to face change; turn mistakes into “learning opportunities” and prepare to take risks to quickly apply these newly learned skills. “Belief Driven Success” guides the audience on how they can be more, do more and have more in both their professional and personal lives.

The relationship with your client doesn’t end with the purchase that’s where it begins. Learn low-cost, highly effective solutions to increase sales, cross-sell clients, build a referral network and establish yourself as “the” expert.
