No matter what type of work you do in your “day job” or at home,
being able to communicate well is in every job description.


  • Do you want to work better with your boss, co-workers, and clients?
  • Do you have someone you just don’t get along with?
  • Do you wish you could get your ideas across better?
  • Do you want to be more productive and get better results at work or home?
  • Do you have a relationship at home that could use a tune-up?
  • Do you want to gain confidence and become a better skilled communicator?

If  you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then this course is for you.  It’s all about teaching you how to overcome communication challenges and equip you with new skills that will make you more effective in the workplace.

And, while good communication skills are the cornerstone of every successful job, promotion, raise, and opportunity out there, it is also what makes our relationships at home work. You’ll learn communication skills that are immediately transferable to your relationships at home as well.

In Simple Steps for Effective Communication, you’ll gain many useful “how-to’s,” and take part in exercises designed to build your communication skills tool box. You’ll learn some small changes you can make that will have a huge impact on understanding, and being understood.

The course begins September 20.  


When you join the course, you will be emailed each step for 4 days.

What People Are Saying:

I just completed the course. The content was just what I needed to discover the areas I needed to work on, taking small steps to improving my day-to-day communication skills. The format of the online course worked. I enjoyed going at my own pace. I didn’t know what to expect from an online course. I’m typically a classroom (in-person) learner or a self-learner (read the book & do the activity). I enjoyed the combination of video, webinar, exercises and  and links. ~ J Ferrado

I have taken Betty’s live communication skills course and found the online course to be very similar. You’ll catch her enthusiasm and humor throughout. There are so many great tips and skills introduced,  it was a great refresher. I highly recommend this online course whether you have or haven’t taken the live course. ~ R Nichols
