Be a Causative Communicator
Your 3-day Investment will return
A lifetime of difference
Causative [kaw’-zuh-tiv], adjective: Making what you want HAPPEN. Being able to cause your intended effect or outcome at will.
This is not a persuasion technique, a trick, a gimmick, a bunch of tips, a new way to give a sales talk, win a debate, or manipulate.
It’s a HIGH level skill of being able to make what you want happen because you can make pure and profound communication happen anytime, anywhere. Whether you're 1-on-1, in a difficult conversation, a meeting, or negotiation, both in your professional and your personal life.
We know it works because we’re swimming in client success stories. They got the promotion, resistance and conflict evaporated, they transformed the situation, everyone is listening, their vision is spreading throughout the organization, they closed the $400 million deal, and their teenager’s talking to them.
Most people live their entire lives with this power lying dormant inside of them. You don’t have to be one of them.
It’s for people who are serious about being a world class communicator.
This is a skill set that enables you to transform any situation to create the new realities you want. It feels like magic.
This skill set isn't something you're going to learn from trial & error, reading a book, watching videos or analyzing what other people are doing. Frankly, most people never acquire these abilities.
That's what makes this workshop special.
What you get in causative communication live!
A powerful presence. Everyone responds differently to you when you have it.
You'll stop all your "mental noise" so you're calm and in the moment. Your mind will stop ping-ponging all over the place. As a result, people around you will find their own "noise" calms down and vaporizes. It gets calm and focused when you walk in the room. People notice this. You can evaluate how much "mental noise" there is in your world just by taking a moment as you read this to notice how much of it there is for you right now. You'll experience tremendous relief when all that "noise" is gone. You'll have a powerful dignity.
You'll communicate with a superior level of intention. Most people have never developed the skill of communicating with real intention and so they substitute effort, force and excess energy. All these strip you of poise. Intention has everything to do with certainty and nothing to do with being forceful. Make no mistake, what you see when someone has executive presence, when you see a powerful leader, is not in intensity of energy, it's an intensity of intention. The energy is incidental. Many very powerful leaders speak softly but with unmistakable intention. Intention commands attention and understanding. This world class level of communication penetrates, inspires, makes things happen. Intention is a core concept in Causative Communication. It is true leadership communication. A vital skill for saying it once and seeing it HAPPEN.
The ability to totally tune in to the other person. As someone wrote after his boss did this training: “I love him! I get 100% of his focus. I feel fantastic talking to him. He’s not rushed. I feel like an eternity has gone by, I hang up the phone and realize it was a 12 minute conversation. That kind of impact in 12 minutes! WOW!”
The ability to make a deep, strong connection with the other person. If you don't have that connection, that strong rapport, your words just bounce off. When you have that connection your words penetrate and create a completely different effect. Clients tell us all the time, “I said the exact same words, but this time they listened.” Every amazing outcome is built on the foundation of a deep human connection. Despite what you’ve been told, you can build this connection in a matter of minutes with anyone if you know how. You'll know how. When you do this, trust grows rapidly. Trust is the basis of the real, solid cooperation you’ll need.
You'll communicate with complete clarity.
Genuine listening. People have not been taught how to listen and there's a tremendous amount of pretended listening in this world. People are thinking when they should be listening. All thinking gets in the way of listening. When you're really listening, you're not thinking, not at all - you're listening. It takes work to develop this ability to truly listen. Most people hear a little, think they heard it all and have an urge to interrupt. Most people, when they first start on our exercise where you learn how to really listen, don't even make it to the 30 second mark. Even less if their buttons are getting pushed. You'll practice until you can do it effortlessly. Being an extraordinary listener is one of the most valued traits in the WORLD, especially in leaders. You'll listen with a level of skill people will notice. You'll listen with a level of skill that makes people change as they're talking.
The ability to make conflict and resistance evaporate. If you encounter resistance, this is important.
The ability to achieve perfect understanding. This is rather profound. People who come to us find it eye-opening when they discover how imperfectly they are being understood. They had no idea. Most people don’t fully realize how often imperfect understanding is the root cause why they’re not getting what they want. Imperfect understanding is the foundation for disagreement. Perfect understanding is not easily achieved. It takes skill. And funny enough, when people perfectly understand you, they can’t help it, they start to go into agreement with you. It happens very naturally, effortlessly. Being perfectly understood is the basis for REAL forward progress, REAL breakthroughs.
The ability to make any conversation, meeting, negotiation, turn out in a way that fully satisfies you. And also makes the other person happy. This includes getting the exact outcome you want. This is the essence of being Causative. It's magic.
