Listen Up-Speak UpCan you get your message across? 

Did you really listen to what she said?

Are you nervous about speaking up?

Could you use a communications tune up?

Will you join me in the taking the 80/20 Challenge?

Let’s work together to improve our communication skills. To what end? To clearly ask for what you need. To break through some intimacy roadblocks. To better understand your partners – personal and business. To increase your bottom-line by making sales to those who need what you have ….. You name it. This challenge and the tools I am offering you will make you a more effective communicator in all areas of your life.

Communication leads to community, that is,
to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.

~ Rollo May

There are three reasons why I decided to create this challenge for myself:

THE FIRST is that we are about to begin our new Business Success Series for our students – Fire Up your Inner Entrepreneur. Effective communication is primary as they adopt and adapt and employ our 5 strategies for success. Many of the students coming through our hand analysis training programs want to make a business out of their passion. Speaking up, speaking clearly, listening carefully, asking for the sale, developing lasting business relationships … are crucial to being paid as a healer and being recognized as a good communicator.

THE SECOND is that I’ve been tracking some common themes in my clients over the past year. Sure enough, one of the biggest dilemmas is fear of speaking up about stuff that is painful and feeling that even when they do, it falls on deaf ears. I wanted to become a better guide as they developed more effective communication techniques.

THE THIRD is no surprise. I work on being a better communicator all the time. Communications is part of my Life Purpose. And I struggle at times, as we all do, to be authentic, compassionate and active in my listening and remaining open and curious in getting to know someone.


What does 80/20 rule mean when it comes to communication? Can you listen actively or ask open ended/clarifying questions 80% of the time & talk 20% of the time? Let’s get started.

Step One:  Take my Communications Self Assessment to gauge where you are on the effective communication scale.

Step Two:  Take the challenge to become a champion communicator; use my tools to help you along the way and share what you have learned.

Step Three:  Work with me to pinpoint your communication style and potential challenges as revealed in your hands.  Contact me to set up a special “Your Communication Style” Session.  And check out some cool stuff in hands described below that indicate strengths, challenges and style in communication.

The key to intimacyWhy not start here? What do your hands say about your communication style, your strengths and your challenges? A lot!  Your hands reveal so much about you, especially your unique way of connecting to others.  Are you being true to your type?  Are you in communication block hell?
A great first stop is a visit to the  Relationships Category of the HandTales Blog.  Read all about the 4 Heart Line Styles. Can you identify with the Nurturer, the Stoic, the Romantic Idealist, the Passionate?   Remember, be true to your type and learn from other styles to become a champion communicator. Your hands reveal your style, your strengths.  Can you learn from those with different ones??

During a Communication Style session with me explore the health of your Chakras, especially the throat and 3rd eye.  I’ll also look at your hand shape; the length and bend in your fingers – the “sales team” of your hands and much, much more……all about improving communication.

Why not set up a special private consultation with me to map out your strengths in communication and what you have to work on to be the best communicator you can be.  To discuss the benefits and the cost,  contact me.

The single biggest problem in communication is

the illusion that it has taken place.

~ George Bernard Shaw

I hope this 80/20 Challenge will help you reap the rewards due when you summon your courage to communicate authentically and deeply.

Go forth and prosper in your business and in your relationships,
