Communication Workshop

This effective communication skills training course gives teams the tools and insights they need to communicate clearly and persuasively with everyone on and off the team. Designed by Quixote Consulting founder Rob Fletcher, the How Great Teams Communicate team communication training course will improve both verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Team members hone effective communication skills to help communicate more clearly and persuasively in any situation. Unique communication challenges such as email and other virtual communication, as well as group settings such as meetings and presentations will be addressed.

Communication Workshop
The cornerstone of How Great Teams Communicate is Quixote Consulting’s proprietary Ten Universal Team Communication Principles. You’ll learn how to unlock these ten keys for team communication success.

You will also learn which type of communication is most effective for different situations. Find out when and when not to use email, when to pick up the phone, and when it’s crucial to talk face to face.

Quixote Consulting will design a team communication skills training for your team that is specific to your needs. We’ve found that it’s important to both leverage universal communication principles and also target workshop content for each team’s specific communication needs.

Communication Workshop
Build a more effective team by examining what your team’s communication triumphs and challenges are and brainstorm an action plan to get you all communicating more effectively.

Practical and Applicable

Communication Workshop
At Quixote Consulting, we know how important it is for any new training knowledge to be practical and applicable. That’s why we put such great emphasis on immediate and realistic application. Participants leave with a plan in place for employing their new skills in the coming week and beyond.

Energetic and Fun

We also know that people respond best to presentations that are energetic, interactive and fun. There is always laughter in the session. And the unique methodologies we employ definitely help – we’ve used the modalities of chocolate and even wine pairing to explore the workshop content. Any of our fun team building programs can be easily combined with this workshop to create that magical mix of meaningful fun.

The Best of the Best

Quixote Consulting’s research team gathers the latest management and leadership research and sifts through that impressive collection of knowledge and wisdom. We then distill what we’ve found down into what is most important, memorable and applicable to you and your team. In short, we do the work so your people can benefit the most.

Lasting Impact

Communication Workshop
Participants walk away from the session with practical tools that can be immediately applied to their individual work situations, as well as a vision of the powerful productivity possible in a team that recognizes and leverages all team members’ strengths. We stretch our time together (and your training dollars) by including (optional) pre-workshop assignments, post-event success tools and coaching.


We customize key components of the workshop to ensure that you get the right material to the right people at the right time, maximizing the return on your investment. We take into account your unique team situation and your desired outcomes.

We also recommend:

  • Individual coaching to maximize the effectiveness of your training investment
