Communications Mastery: Read the Room
with Kieran Flanagan
Thursday 9 September
Unlock Everyday Efficiencies & Unleash Your Productivity
with Samantha Garrett
Welcome to ‘Communications Mastery: Read the Room’
Led by: Kieran Flanagan
This full-day masterclass will be held on Tuesday 7 September 2021
ABOUT YOUR MASTERCLASS
Have you ever wished you could find the right language to really connect with someone? Or wanted to better understand someone on the other side of the table? Wanted to have more influence and be a better persuader?
Kieran Flanagan’s workshop will teach you the Default Thinking Frames which are a distillation of Jung, Myers Briggs, DISC and Glynn Braddy’s work. However, unlike typical archetype systems, it is FAST! It helps you quickly read & connect to the room without asking the people in it to take a test. This is great for anyone who needs to be more persuasive, influential or effective. It will allow you to better understand, connect and frame things in a way others can buy into.
If you want more influence and greater connection, this is a must do workshop. (PLUS you will also understand what drives you and what your Default Thinking Frame allowing you to hack your own performance.)
A not to be missed experience for anyone who needs to influence and persuade.

Welcome to ‘Unlock Everyday Efficiencies & Unleash Your Productivity’

ABOUT YOUR MASTERCLASS
Have you noticed that technology has the potential to be either a great tool for boosting your efficiency and productivity…or a massive source of wasted time and frustration? And that it has an uncanny ability to make you feel overwhelmed and out of your depth – just when you think you’ve got it all figured out?!
Here’s the thing. Tech tools like to keep secrets! Their most powerful features are usually hidden below the surface. Many people spend years using the same tools every day and never discover the sources of efficiency and productivity lurking in their depths.
You’ve heard the saying ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’, right? Well it’s time that you do know what you don’t know!
Much of your tech frustration, time wasting and overwhelm can be solved by learning how to unlock the efficiencies available in your everyday tech tools. Couple that with clever tips and strategies for optimising your time and energy and you can unleash a whole new level of efficiency, productivity and organisation!
So are you ready to unlock and unleash?

9.00 SESSION 1: WORKING TOGETHER EFFECTIVELY: TOGETHER OR APART!
If you’re like most EAs and PAs who experienced 2020, you’ve had to quickly adapt to working with your exec and your colleagues in new ways. At times you’ve probably felt a little overwhelmed and out-of-your depth. Like when you were struggling to figure out yet another video calling platform (can’t they all just use the same one!!??) or grappling with keeping your boss on schedule from your kitchen table. To kick off our masterclass, you’ll build confidence and competence in using the tech tools you have at your fingertips (and maybe a few more!) to work together effectively no matter where you are – together or apart!
10.30 Morning tea
10.50 SESSION 2: UNDER THE INBOX: UNLOCK THE FULL EFFICIENCY-BOOSTING POWER OF YOUR EMAIL TOOL
You spend so much time managing email, just think what it could mean if you found new hidden efficiencies in your email tool! In this session we’ll explore under the hood of Microsoft Outlook and Gmail to uncover features that will save you time and take your email management to a whole new level. Inbox Zero here we come!
13.30 SESSION 3: BEYOND THE INBOX: MASTER COMMUNICATION, CONNECTION & COLLABORATION IN A TEAM CHAT ENVIRONMENT
Team chat tools like Slack, Microsoft Teams & Google Chat are definitely the ‘new black’! Most days it probably feels like you’ve got ten chat conversations on the go at once, trying to make sure you don’t send the wrong message to the wrong person (we’ve all done it!). All while still having multiple inboxes to keep under control – it’s enough to make even the most tech savvy feel a little overwhelmed. In this session, we’ll explore all the features that you need to know to master team chat and prevent it from being a productivity killer.
13.00 Afternoon tea
13.20 SESSION 4: OPTIMISING YOUR PERSONAL PRODUCTIVITY, EFFICIENCY AND ORGANISATION
Your time and energy are precious resources – ones we all wish we had more of! While this session won’t give you more time or energy (sorry about that!), it will provide you with tips, tricks and strategies for using them in ways that optimise your personal productivity, efficiency and organisation. Which means that you can spend less time wishing you had more time and energy, and more time spending your energy on the things you love.
Note: This masterclass will be an interactive, hands-on learning experience. To get the most from the workshop, please bring along a laptop. The masterclass content will be tailored further to delegate’s needs both prior to and during the workshop.
16.30 Masterclass close
