Are you in a work environment where communicating effectively with other people has a large impact on the success of your day?


Communication is just talking, right? How hard can it be? Well…VERY!

86% of people believe ineffective communication or lack of collaboration cause workplace failures.*

We face more challenges than we realize in our exchanges with others; what you meant and how you came across can be two very different things that are at odds with each other.

We’ve all been there, and it’s a difficult place to be. It can feel like no matter what we do, we can’t break through the barriers.


Yes, there is hope! Communication is so much more than just saying words; it’s exchanging meaningful information and producing a result from that exchange. It means ensuring the team is aligned with the right goals.

In fact, 97% agree a lack of alignment within a team directly impacts their results.*

We’ve developed a Strengths-Based Communication course called How to Talk About It to help you and your team achieve more than you ever dreamed possible.

By blending StrengthsFinder methodology with an effective communication model, How to Talk About It helps your team create a safe environment and develop the skills necessary to tackle tough conversations when results are on the line, at all levels, about anything!

Enhance Team Performance

Tough Conversations

Communication often breaks down when it’s most important. High risk, results-oriented conversations are the exchanges we need to be the most proficient in, and tend not to be.

Meaningful Conversations

No one likes a pointless meeting. Meaningful conversations align individuals with the team goal and produce tangible takeaways everyone is accountable for and can act on.

Produce Results

By having meaningful conversations when stakes are high, you and your team gain a competitive advantage by becoming results-oriented, rather than problem focused. You’ll hit your goals and so much more!

Frequently Asked Questions.
Here are some common questions about our course.

My team only has 6 people on it. Can we still participate?
Yes - by scheduling the course with other teams in your organization, you can meet the headcount requirement of 15 people and we’ve found the learning experience to be very rich. The cross-pollination of groups often encourages creativity and increased accountability. So whether there are two teams of seven and eight, or seven teams of two and a lone wolf, you’ll have a great learning experience!

We've done Strengths with Trybal (or someone else) and already have our StrengthsFinder Reports. Can we get a discount?
Yes, $15/participant who already has their Strengths Report will be deducted from the total of the course.

How long is the class?
It’s 16 hours of learning total spread across three modules. We’ve purposefully designed the course to be flexible so it meets the needs of your organizational culture. If you only have time for two hour sessions every other week, we can do that. If you want to get it all done in two consecutive days, we can do that as well. Any way you want to slice it, we can deliver it!

Can I earn credits with this course?
Yes! This course is both TEA and HRCI certified.

Can I buy the class now and schedule it later?
Yes - you can schedule the class anytime within 90 days of purchase.
