​Rapport Building: How to Build Effective Business Relationships

Building rapport is an essential skill for business development, negotiations and other high-stakes communications. Imagine if you could quickly build rapport and trust when you’re on a sales call or even if you're just trying to get help from a service provider. It is a fact that when people like each other, in business or friendship, they tend to trust each other AND people generally buy from people they trust. In this workshop, you will learn proven techniques to build rapport so that you can communicate more effectively and build strong relationships for greater business success.

​How To Master The Inner Game Of Entrepreneurship

While most business courses focus on preparing entrepreneurs for all the “external” challenges they’ll face - recruiting their dream team, launching products, financing - there’s little attention paid to all of the internal struggles one faces when launching a business. But, much like a sport, what separates winners from the rest is the ability to focus on and master the “inner” game. How you deal with adversity, challenging clients or partners, and financial uncertainty is more about how you talk to yourself than just about anything else. It’s about how you manage the little voices in your head, your emotions, and maintain the positive but realistic energy you need to keep going and succeed. In this workshop, you will learn how to tap into your “superpowers” by leveraging the power of your mind to master the inner game of entrepreneurship.
