WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...

“Art is a catalyst -- an inspirational, heart-filled substance that has helped me reorganize around an utterly new mindset of my skills, creativity, and superpower. I trust Art with my ideas - no matter how undercooked - and he can illuminate possibilities, expose vulnerabilities, and offer next steps. Art is helping me dance into my future: to boldly go where I've been afraid to before.”

MICHELE B.

“To say that he’s taught me tools to refine and focus my communication skills may sound too tactical and (ugh) like marketing.  The truth however is that he’s done both, which is what’s made working with Art such a success.” 


“Message Mapping is one easy example; a straightforward and intuitive process with which to refine and then articulate one’s point. This technique allows one to be able to succinctly deliver that message to any audience, be it a team of developers or Board of Directors." 

GREG B.

Will the course give me tools and approaches I can use in the workplace right away? 
 
Absolutely! This course is designed with practical, real workplace scenarios and case studies along with ample suggestions for how to apply the tools in the workplace.
Will I be able to ask questions?
 
Yes! Our online community is made up of people just like you who are trying to be the best communicators they can be and to navigate challenging workplace issues.
How is this course different from other communication courses?
   
The majority of courses out there focus on one aspect, typically feedback. We give you a lesson on managing yourself in challenging confrontations, a powerful planning tool to prepare for challenging presentations, as well as a series of lessons on applying the principles of positive persuasion, fierce listening, and a wrap up of lessons from master communicators.
