Get Directions

Conversations about decisions can be hard. They are about getting details across to someone that may not have the same background - it’s almost as if you’re speaking a different language. No matter if you are the decision maker or the one who needs a decision, the inability to get there can quickly kill a project, initiative or idea – or delay it and create more work -- resulting in a negative impact on the company’s health and future.

Taken from her new book “Stop Pushing String: Getting Decisions Made with The Five Languages of Business,” Jessica Hickey will share the tips and tricks to know exactly what to say and how to say it, by using language that resonates no matter what business area that decision-maker works in.

During this interactive program, you will learn:

  • The Five Languages of Business and their powerful application to getting the right decisions made
  • The 3 key to listening for the language the person across from you is speaking
  • How to identify the language you speak and share it with those that need you to make decisions
  • Ways to quickly translate a problem or need from your language into decision-maker language so he or she gets it and can say yes!

Jessica will have books available for purchase/signature.
