Communication Program 

for New Managers


This is an exciting time in your career, but make no mistake: you’re going to hit some bumps in the road, and communication WILL BE one of your biggest challenges. This three-day immersion program prepares you to communicate like an inspirational leader right away and avoid some of the common traps that stress out most new managers. You’ll discover techniques to earn the trust of your employees and the respect of your boss, all while figuring out how to exercise your new authority and come across like you actually know what you’re doing.

Program Format

The program is full immersion, which means you don’t just learn concepts – you practice them as we go, with live coaching from Geoff and your peers. After the 3-day workshop, you’ll receive a private coaching session via web conference.


Over the three days, you’ll have time to learn and refine your skills in the following types of communications:

  • Day-to-day emails, memos, and other written messages

  • Proposals and recommendations to your boss

  • Presentations to senior executives

  • Face-to-face meetings with employees


The program is based on Geoff’s Three Elements of Influential Communication©:  Trust, Logic, and Passion. These three ingredients are a formula for you to be clear, concise, and influential in your new role.
