You're Invited to Our Coaches Roundtable
A Virtual Learning Experience
You’re invited for a briefing (and it will be brief!) on an updated communication learning rubric for yourself and your clients.
When: Friday, February 9 between 1 – 2 p.m. ET
What: (will you learn?)
Recently, the Articulation team has exploring what it takes to be a good communicator. We have always known there is a difference between a good presentation (or communication) and becoming a good communicator.
Learning what makes a communication good is important – we teach people this skill on a daily basis – and there are thousands of books, blogs, podcasts and TikToks that speak to what makes a good presentation. But that is only part of the story.
If you want to become a good communicator, that is a different pathway. It’s like knowing the names of the stars in the galaxy. It’s a great start! But if you don’t have an understanding of how those stars are connected, you will never be a great astronomer.
So what do you need in order to learn to become a successful communicator?
During this coaches roundtable, we will share what we believe are the six threshold concepts that answer this question.
Threshold concepts come from academia but are useful for those in any learning or development space. Imagine these concepts like doorways– something you need to pass through in order to get to the other side. They are ways of thinking and practicing that allow you to assemble and utilize the knowledge, tools, and skills in a given field so that you can progress.
We began studying threshold concepts under the mentorship of Elizabeth Wardle, a professor and director of the Howe Writing Center at Miami University. She guided us as we defined how people learn to speak and what is needed to become a good communicator – because in the dozens if not hundreds of books we’ve read, we couldn’t find it.
But with a collective 30+ years of training and coaching speakers, we knew we could define it, because we’ve all seen great communicators!
As a consultant or someone who works with coaching executives, we think you will find these threshold concepts invaluable. After all, you are communicating all the time. We believe in the power of coaching, and you were selected to participate in this coaching roundtable because we believe in you.
This briefing is our way of showing some love to you – our fellow coaches and consultants. Plus, it’s always fun to get together with your peers!
So bring your coffee or a snack and join us on February 9 between 1 – 2 p.m. ET
