Communication that makes a difference on a daily basis

Tanya Athans_tall
Australian Super

As an Organisational Development Consultant for AustralianSuper, Tanya already knew that anyone could learn and improve but in her experience it is our Mastering Communication 12-month program that delivers real change with ongoing learning. An issue for most leaders and team members at AustralianSuper was around the effectiveness of their content and delivery. Without an end goal in mind, they were failing to plan and deliver consciously and rushing into things – diluting their impact. Many team members also experienced nerves when presenting in front of others. 

Over the past 7-years we have trained over 460 employees at AustralianSuper from the CEO to all levels across the organisation. The primary objective is to elevate their communication skills so they can provide a greater service to their organisation and their members and Tanya says our ongoing support is key to this success.

The Result: Tanya says she has noticed a big change in the way teams tackle communication in their roles and her team in particular. They are able to slow down and consider what they are going to say and have continued to practice and improve beyond the training room. The feedback from participants is consistent, our program is held as the gold standard for training at AustralianSuper.

“It’s not just two days, walk away and never to be heard of again… people have the chance to consider their communication every quarter and receive tips and tools and hints. That’s what sets it apart from other programs.”

Building consistent client communications for global results

TECHNOLGY sap

We worked with a leading global technology company, following a restructure, to ensure their new strategy, client experience model and ‘go to market’ plan was effectively articulated and then communicated across many divisions and geographies. Through tailored design, our programs were able to shift the way their leaders and teams approached their work in order to stay competitive and thrive. 

The bespoke program was multi-phased, firstly to understand the client’s challenges and needs. Then to work with the senior leader group to articulate the strategy and communicate it with consistency. This included using our proven methodology to retrain their customer facing teams to adopt a consultative whole business value approach with clients. The program encompassed several delivery methods including: online training, virtual webinars, face-to-face training and coaching.

The Result: Our programs are the most frequently recommended and requested in the organisation and consistently rate 9/10’s in the NPS survey. The shift in capability, mind-set and behaviour has helped the business demonstrably show progress in their strategy as well as their sales.

“Program was very well structured and pushed you beyond your comfort zone at a rapid pace – leading to more comfort and confidence to deliver much more effective communications immediately.”

– Mary Bazemore, Global Services Sales Education Operations & Portfolio, Global Tech Company

Noticeable uplift in our sales performance, resilience and morale

Michael Ziccone
ANZ

Since 2015, we have trained over 500 ANZ employees in our Mastering Communication program. This communication skills course is a core requirement for all client-facing team members to complete alongside their technical skills and compliance training.

ANZ’s goal was to uplift and deepen their teams skills in order to provide value to their clients in every communication. They not only engaged one to one and in small group meetings, they were also required to present to larger groups of potential clients on a regular basis.  We tailored an in-house program to meet their specific requirements and built sustained learning techniques into the delivery. The roll-out has been a huge success and Michael has discussed the “noticeable uplift in our sales performance, resilience and morale”.

“We saw people were confident and more willing to get up in front of people and talk… Years later we are still seeing that those people are much more confident in terms of the way they are able to get up and talk.”

Knowing the customer and how to engage them for result

Alison-Beverage Company_v2

The sales and marketing team at a leading beverage company in Australia were confident communicators but were not always achieving their desired outcomes with customers, team members and external stakeholders. Upon closer examination, we found there were some poor communication habits such as a reliance on presentation slides, a tendency to overload their audience with information, and public speaking nerves. Major opportunities were also being missed because they did not understand the customer well enough.

To address these issues we designed a 1-day program with relevant pre-work called The Art Of Influence. Our goals were to help the sales and marketing team better understand their audience and tailor their communications to suit their needs; design communications that was engaging, relevant and delivered in a way that was more impactful, memorable and actionable.

A big success for the teams, our training ensured they have the tools and techniques to communicate effectively and know their audience more deeply.

“The engaging learning method is really powerful. Being so involved meant I retained a lot more of the content.”

– Chris Moschos, Innovation Marketing Manager, Beverage Company

FAQ

Engaging stakeholders, clients, senior managers and team members is paramount in a constant and fast changing environment. Teams that can deliver engaging presentations, polished pitches and memorable contributions in meetings can influence fast and drive results.

The world of work is rapidly changing. The World Economic Forum predicts by 2022, 42% of the core skills required for a job will change. As automation and artificial intelligence continue to expand, the need for technical skills will drop and the skills that make us uniquely human will be in vast demand. This is why those who can engage, influence and lead with impact will stay relevant in the future of work.

Rapid change and disruption, matrix structures, distributed teams and new ways of working are challenging the ability of professionals to get their message across - in all seniority levels. Leaders and teams need to develop conscious, effective communication skills, so they stay relevant, be impactful and ultimately drive success.
