Communicator & Influencer!

  • Soft skills are vital to your career, your team and organisation's success.

  • Traditional techniques are incomplete.

  • Learn what genius communicators do.

  • See respect, motivation and results around you grow and flourish.

I've got to say that Chris and Geoff are two of their most consciously effective communicators that I've ever met - and I've met a lot!  What they don't know about effective communication frankly isn't worth knowing.

How this Masterclass works

1. We'll share

two key frameworks

Every communication you have with others is important.  It can cost you time, relationship and money if not done well.  So, preparation is key. Two elements of your preparation are knowing “what is the communication for?” (what is the intention?) and “what is the advance you want to make?” (what is the outcome for the communication?).  We’ll teach you well formed outcome and the intention and consequences frameworks (OIC) used by top influential communicators.

2. You'll learn

both the what & how to

Knowing what preparation to do is only the start.  Without knowing how to make the OIC frameworks a habit and apply them for preparation and within communication, you're left no better off than not knowing what they are.  You'll learn how use OIC to engage and sustain the attention of others you talk or meet with,  to keep conversations on-topic, to ensure you achieve your outcome when communicating.

Insights we'll share

There is a significant human and cultural cost in having communication soft skills gaps in the workplace, for everyone.  So many leaders tell us they and their teams are not achieving what they want in their communication and that it is impacting psychological safety, employee engagement, business results and transformational success.  We'll share with you how to use the OIC frameworks to:

Get people to understand the intention or the 'what for' behind your dialogue or task delegation;
Build engaged and self motivated people who show rational and emotional commitment and participate fully; &
Conversationally develop people who collaborate and who you can rely on to achieve the outcomes set for them with minimal supervision.

About Chris Collingwood

Chris is a recognised leader in training design and delivery specialising in leadership development, executive coaching and NLP training and co-founder of Performance Breakthru Academy. 


From working with leaders, managers and entrepreneurs over the past thirty years, he has observed that there are specific components that shift teams and organisations from good results to exceptional results.


He lives with his partner Jules in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia.  Chris is co-author of the “NLP Field Guide; A reference manual of practitioner level patterns” and has produced hundreds of graduates through his and Jules’s Graduate Certificate qualification in NLP.   

He has over thirty years experience in coaching, consulting and leading seminars in Australia, Indonesia, India, China, New Zealand and the US.

He says that “For leaders and organisations, interpersonal communication is fraught with danger.  Important ideas and information are often communicated poorly, resulting in misunderstanding, and low grade execution of projects.  Unfortunately, when a person is promoted into a leadership position, typically they are not taught how to manage themselves or the people who report to them effectively.  Self management includes managing one’s own states, shifting context, and performance”.

Chris brings his experience in course design and accreditation, his background in cognitive psychology and NLP, and experience in running a registered training organisation to the Performance Breakthru Academy. 

About Geoffrey Wade

Geoffrey Wade is an international business performance improvement consultant specialising in workplace communications and leadership and co-founder of Performance Breakthru Academy.

He lives in Brisbane, Australia where the climate is known for being beautiful one day, perfect the next.  He is recognised for helping leaders in medium to large corporations to drive quantum improvements in business results.  Geoffrey and his team have helped over 10,000 leaders build high performing teams.

He’s known for sharing stories about his client’s remarkable achievements, then pausing, smiling and saying, “If you aren’t a bit sceptical about those outcomes, then you haven’t thought through just what they mean in practice in your business”.  


He’s the author of numerous white papers on communications, leadership and organisational change and the book "The Sales Edge".

Geoffrey believes that once you shift the prevailing limiting mindsets about what people can do, that fast and lasting organisational change is possible in many enterprises and that it comes through the effective communication with and leadership of human assets.  He says “leaders and organisations are inconsistent and ineffective at connecting with their people - and hidden within this capability gap lies the potential to improve employee psychological safety, engagement and performance”.

He is on a mission to shift the prevailing paradigm that employees are liabilities to one where staff are seen as assets and treated accordingly.

Super-charge your communication

We've decoded what genius communicators do - both consciously and unconsciously, so that we all can learn to do what they do to improve our people, our careers and personal experiences.  Our 'Engage' model together with our teaching methods helps anyone rapidly become a highly skilled communicator.  In this Masterclass we'll share two key frameworks and other insights into our 7 steps to Engage so you (and your team) can move toward being a master communicator.
