Book by Patrick Donadio



In today's high-tech world, good old-fashioned, verbal communication is not as good as it used to be. With communication in the workplace expanded to several platforms, how do you ensure the message you send will be received, understood and acted upon?

This program shows you how to take control of your words and actions so that you can be an efficient, effective, and influential communicator that gets results. In this engaging, practical and fun presentation, you will learn the 6-Step IMPACT process based on Patrick's book, "Communicating with IMPACT©": Patrick places special emphasis on trainee involvement using group discussions, role-playing/skills practice, sharing real-life examples, and providing planning time to put these principles into action.

These principles will provide you with the tools you need to lead more effectively, communicate more clearly, influence others, present more powerfully, create deeper relationships, enhance your credibility, increase sales, achieve greater results, and positively impact the lives of others.

Communicating with IMPACT, will inspire and empower you to strive for a better version of yourselves and increase your IMPACT when communicating, leading and presenting/speaking with others.
