Not sure what you need?
We can help
“Our client correspondence is not professional.”
For better everyday correspondence to internal and external readers we recommend High Impact Business Writing. It’s great for employees who need to write more professional emails, short reports, recommendations and letters.

Grammar mistakes can quickly erode your credibility. Grammar & Proofreading gives you the skills you need to make sure every communication is correct.

“Our management team can’t communicate confidently to the C-suite.”
Two workshops will help: Executive-Ready Presentations and Executive-Ready Writing. Both workshops help learners craft messages that address the particular needs of the C-suite audience, and prepare them for challenging questions and push-back.
“We need to be better at communicating technical information to non-technical people.”
Technical employees love their data and scientific employees love their science. Although techies like to share all the details, non-technical audiences rarely need or want that depth of information. Our writing and presentation workshops teach your employees the difference between researching information and communicating it persuasively to others.

Check out our Writing Technical Reports, Technical Presentations, and Scientific Presentations workshops.

“Emails are out of control around here.”
You have two great options. Email Essentials teaches you how to 1) manage your inbox, 2) practice email etiquette, and 3) quickly draft emails. It’s a half-day workshop and can be presented as 3 lunch and learns.

Email Writing for Results is also a half-day workshop that is ideal for email correspondence teams.

“We waste too much time in unproductive meetings.”
Facilitating High Impact Meetings is great if you need employees to plan and facilitate strategic meetings to solve problems, create new ideas or take action .

Making Meetings Work is perfect for teams who want both attendees and the meeting leader to be responsible for making meetings more productive.

And if you want better follow through, our Minute Taking workshop helps you capture the most important discussion points and action items.

“We need to be more persuasive.”
If you need to write more persuasively, try our Writing Effective Proposals workshop. If you need to sell in person, try Presenting to Groups or Communicate with Impact. If you need to sell to your own internal decision makers, try both the Executive-Ready Writing and Executive-Ready Presentations.
“We want long term results. How do you ensure transfer of learning?”
We begin the transfer of learning in the workshops by having participants bring in real work to the session so they can practice their new skills. Following the workshop, participants can access online resources and templates, read our tweets and bi-weekly blogs and download our Ten+1 Tip sheets. We also send an electronic follow-up email to reinforce the learning.
“Our team has special needs–off the shelf training won’t work for us.”
Every Wavelength workshop is personalized because your employees bring in real documents to write or actual presentations to deliver, and they receive feedback on their efforts from the facilitator We can also customize training to meet your specific needs, by creating handouts, exercises examples and case studies.
“Our managers are frustrated because they have to rewrite everything.”
If your managers spend too much time editing other people’s writing, they may benefit by learning our best practices for effective editing. In addition, your managers can attend a writing workshop with their teams or attend a Management Overview Session to learn a common language and set of techniques.
“We don’t have time for a 2-day workshop.”
You don’t have to schedule two consecutive days. Consider running day one of the workshop this week and day two the following week.

Consider a blended course–combine classroom or personal coaching with online learning.
