What could you and your organization accomplish if you had a consistent approach to communicating internally and externally? There is a fundamental change in the way business people communicate today that impacts the productivity, relationships, teamwork, retention, and profitability of an organization. While technology has boosted the speed and global reach of our communication, our confidence and effectiveness in being able to communicate via face-to-face interactions, text, email, conference call, teleclass, webinar, and video-conferencing has not kept pace.
Byron Van Arsdale, Master Certified Coach and communication specialist, has created a simple leadership model that dramatically improves the confidence and effectiveness of business people regardless of the mode of communication.
Byron has strong background in communications, presentations training and developing collaboration among teams. He developed his 6 Principle Leadership model based on the fact that while Information Transfer (training) was important, it was Knowledge Transfer (application and integration) that directly determined individual and organizational results. IBM is using his model as part of their strategy to provide leadership and coaching programs for their executives worldwide. Coldwell Banker used his model to quickly introduce a national program, at a fraction of the normal roll out costs, to their 70,000 agents. Byron is responsible for developing and training people to expertly deliver this model.
Byron started coaching professionals and executives in 1991. In 1997, he graduated from the 2-year program at Coach University (International Coach Federation accredited). From 1997 - 2005, he served on the faculty of Coach University mentoring new and experienced coaches. Since 1999, he holds the highest ICF designation, Master Certified Coach. An Internationally recognized speaker and trainer, he is also the author of 6 Audio CD training programs: 6 Principles of Powerful Conference Calls, Executive Conference Call Leadership, 16 Secrets to a Great Conference Call, 6 Principles of Learner Driven Teleclasses, 21 Ways to Screw Up a Teleclass, and 19 Best Practices of Teleclass Leadership.
Byron and his wife & business partner, Bernice L. Ross, PhD, have jointly run their virtual company since 1998. They collaborate with other respected knowledge workers to meet the needs of their clients. Current projects include writing the first book on conference call leadership and developing a Learning Management System (LMS) to provide 24/7 online access to training classes, podcasts, videos, assessments, and workbooks. Their distance-learning site is www.ConferenceCallTraining.com. Their service sites include www.RossdalePress.com (publishing), www.TeleconferenceLine.com (rentals), www.PowerConferenceCalls.com (blog).
