Don’t Talk To Me Like That


Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 3.03.23 PM

Some days don’t you just want to say (or yell), “Don’t talk to me like that!”

When you stop and think about it, so often our intended message is twisted and turned and derailed simply because of the way the message was delivered.

This is an essential recorded virtual seminar for you if you’ve been on the receiving end of someone else’s problem, and not in a good way, or you can’t seem to get your message across clearly and calmly.

Have you ever heard someone say, or maybe you’ve said it, “I’ve told them, and told, them and told them, and they just don’t listen!”?

Have you had a manager ask you why something happened with a tone that sounded more like an incrimination?

Have you had an employee or team member come to – or at – you venting their frustration ‘all over you’, and your left carrying that load, feeling weighed down by their problems?

Grab this recorded virtual seminar to learn key strategies to ensure you can give and receive messages without suffering for it. You’ll also learn:

– why messages get lost in the twisted, messy delivery.
– how to help someone when they’re about to explode and say something they may later regret.
– how to be angry and frustrated and still keep your cool when communicating with others.

I don’t sugar-coat anything in this seminar. I work with you to ensure your workplace communications and relationships improve, no matter what problems and challenges you face.

It was a pleasure to work with Sally Foley-Lewis on a project where Sally organised over 120 attendees for a training seminar with four speakers. Sally’s approach was professional, supportive, friendly and informative before, during and after the event. Sally ran the seminar and her approach as a MC was of the highest of standards.

Adrienne McLean, Helping Professionals Get More Clients

Sally was the MC and presented at a skills forum where I was also presenting. Sally’s engagement with the participants was a delight to watch and equally to experience. The content of her session was high quality and demanded attention. Her humour and warmth made her presentation very memorable.
