The ability to communicate clearly and effectively is one of the most powerful tools we have to improve our lives.
Skilled communication enhances relationships, reduces stress, and leads to better results at work.
I’m passionate about teaching people how to find the “sweet spot”: being straightforward without offending- so that you can truly be heard.
Communication is really the combination of many skills. No wonder it’s a tricky thing. You actually need to master many smaller tools in order to build your communication superpower.
The good news is that communication is something that can be improved with knowledge and practice. In fact, that’s the only way to do it!
This is why I created Effectively Frank™, a 5 step process that breaks down the skills you need to be successful.
This Fall, I have 2 special offerings for those ready to be new, improved, and effective communicators.
First, I’m offering a workshop, Effectively Frank™: Authentic Communication Strategies for Women Entrepreneurs, at the Women’s Business Center at CEI in Portland, Tuesday, September 30th from 5:30pm-8:00pm.
This workshop teaches skills you can use immediately. Learn how to be seen as kind and competent- even when you speak your mind. These tools will help you grow your business, and feel good about doing it.
Participants are encouraged to bring challenging communication situations from their businesses. Using the 5 steps, we will work on solving real world scenarios, for example:
- Getting past the fear of “selling yourself”
- Raising prices
- Negotiating with clients
- Setting limits in the professional setting
- Managing conflict
- Asking for guidance

Second, I’m offering an individualized coaching program called Effectively Frank™ Bootcamp.
This month-long program is designed to improve your communication skills in a big way. It includes 4 sessions, 60 minutes each, of individual coaching, along with personalized between-session challenges. Whether you focus on the personal or professional, the skills and strategies you learn will make an immediate impact on your life.
Coaching sessions can be face-to-face in my office in Portland, Maine, or via the phone or video chat.
If you sign up and pay by September 26th, 2014, the cost is $300 (a $400 value). I’m offering 5 spots at this price. Coaching sessions need to begin by October 1st, 2014. To sign up, please call or email me directly.
I hope you will consider making better communication your priority! Stay in touch with offerings as they come up (look for more by 2015!) by subscribing to my newsletter- look for the subscribe button on the right hand margin of my website.
