Session Details – 2020
You’re going to learn the keys to using language in ways that build engagement, increase connection and create the conditions for insight and transformation. This isn’t just going to make you a more impactful communicator; it’s going to make you a more powerful leader, colleague and coach.
A message from Jamie Smart:
From 1998 to 2009, my main focus was exploring, learning and teaching people how to use language in powerful ways…
• To capture the imagination and guide people on a journey.
• To ask questions, get someone’s world and deepen connection.
• To engage people, dissolve objections and enrol clients.
• To transform their beliefs, and help them have breakthroughs so they could get the results that mattered to them.
Then, in 2009, I stumbled across the principles behind clarity (as articulated by Sydney Banks). I changed direction, and spent the next 10 years focusing exclusively on waking people up to the truth of the inside- out understanding, and supporting them in awakening others.
In fact, my work with these principles forms the foundation for all my work, including my #1 bestseller CLARITY and my Sunday Times bestselling book, RESULTS.
And that’s still my purpose today: awakening people and supporting them in awakening others.
And here’s the thing: On the one hand, we know it’s not just about the words. On the other hand, there’s a way in which language is ‘the water we’re swimming in’. So last year I decided to do an experiment that started with this question…
What if I took a group of people who already have a deep understanding of the principles behind clarity, and teach them some of the linguistic and non-linguistic distinctions I use to ‘go upstream’ fast with my clients?
I did the beta-test of the Clarity Advanced Coach & Facilitator Programme, and the results were off the hook! In fact, the word-of-mouth was so good that all 12 places on this year’s programme sold out in a heartbeat!
Because the experiment was such a huge success, I’ve decided to start dipping a toe in the water and sharing ‘the language stuff’ with a very specific focus…
…The ‘Magic Words’ That Spark Engagement, Insight and Transformational Change.
You’re about to discover how to…
• Use language more effectively to help create the conditions for insight, realisation and transformation.
• Cultivate heart-to-heart connections so you can have a big impact in the lives of others.
• Find the ‘magic words’ that spark engagement, insight and transformational change.
And much, much more
This session will include a live coaching demonstration. Jamie will be ‘unpacking’ the demo, explaining how it relates to the topic and answering any questions you may have.
