How to Enhance Your Intelligent Communication

29 July 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The backdrop of heightened anxiety and uncertainty due to the pandemic has caused each one of us to react in different ways. Many people we live and work with have become less flexible, reverting to their biases and wanting to continue to do things the way they have always done even though the evidence may strongly indicate that we all need to change our ways of thinking.

This lack of flexibility impacts on all our relationships with other people. How does our internal anxiety and tension manifest itself when we speak to others? Do they feel safe to share their own fears and concerns with us? Do they feel included in the conversation, part of what is going on, able to contribute and experiment? How do we continue to work collaboratively without feeling the need to take control?

In this interactive online event you will have the opportunity to think deeply about how you engage in conversation with others. Using material from leading-edge thinkers, Sylvana Caloni will show you how to enhance your conversational skills.

You will learn techniques for:

  • Increasing your own self-awareness
  • Recognising how people are responding to you
  • Understanding how to create trust in your relationships
  • Collaborating more creatively to bring out the best in yourself and the others around you

Drawing on the work of leading-edge thinkers about intelligence and brain development, together with ancient wisdom and practices, you will have the opportunity to learn to become more competent in your communication during these times of high stress and daily uncertainty.

This is an online event. Please buy your tickets for this event on Eventbrite and we will send you the Zoom link the day before the event.

About Sylvana Caloni

Sylvana Caloni established her coaching business in London in 2004, following a 15-year career in global investment banking. She partners with high potential executives on a promotion track, with recently promoted executives and with established leaders to enable them to become more successful and to deliver improved results. Many of her clients are accomplished managers or experts who acknowledge that the transition to leadership creates additional challenges.

In her former role as Executive Vice President responsible for global equity research teams she probed C-Suite executives across a range of international industries and geographies. From these insights and perspectives, she distilled the essence of business management and market out-performance. Together with this she weaves an understanding of neuroscience, Conversational Intelligence®, adult development theory, systemic and ontological coaching and neuro linguistic programming to best suit her clients’ needs.

Sylvana partners with her clients to make the invisible visible; to develop their self knowledge and to become aware of how their presence, behaviours, values and attitudes impact others. She assists them to appreciate the nuances of the different working and communication styles of their culturally diverse teams. Her clients become more flexible leaders, able to listen more deeply and to have conversations that create greater understanding and collaboration.

Sylvana has held several leadership roles including; Founding Chair of the UK Chapter of Advance, a global network for Australian Professionals and former President of Women in Banking and Finance. She is currently a Board Director of the UK Chapter of the International Women’s Forum.

Sylvana cares about creating opportunities for disadvantaged children. She is a Trustee of the Friends of the Rose Bowl, a charity that helps to fund a youth club. She supports emerging leaders as a coach on the UpRising youth leadership programme and as a mentor at Regent’s University London.
