What's in the course

01

Use Summarization to get on the same page

“I am lost in the conversation.”

“I tried to explain something but people don’t seem to understand.”

“I can’t find the right word. How can I express myself clearly?”

You will be able to use summarization to get on the same page, rephrase without the precise vocabulary, and adapt your message to the amount of details needed.

02

Structure your message

How often does someone tell you about something, and you just don’t care?

How often do you try to show facts, data, evidence, and your audience are zoned out?

We will deep dive into storytelling and how to adapt your message to different audience.

03

Deal with conflicts

How often do you disagree but cannot seem to convince others?

Conflicts are on the surface. To resolve conflicts, you need to understand the other party on the “why”. We will do a lot of role playing exercises on aligning goals and reaching resolutions.

04

Deliver feedback

If there is something that bothers you, do you talk about it or avoid it? Do you worry about saying it out aloud will hurt your relationship?

We will practice effective ways to deliver feedback without hurting others’ feelings.

Shunyao Li

Shunyao grew up in China and moved to the US for PhD in 2013. When she first arrived, she had to rely on others to translate in conversations with her advisor. It took many years but she was able to improve her communication skills enough to become a product manager at Google (as one of the 45 people around the globe accepted in the Google APM program). 

Over the years, she has seen numerous pitfalls that lead to miscommunication at work, and developed frameworks that work the best for non-native English speakers. She started Communicate at Work to help more people like her. This course is a distillation of everything she learnt along the way.

What is special about the course

What is special about the course
Live workshops

Remember those online courses you started but never finished? Or those meetings where you turn off your camera and half-listen?

This is not one of those. Prepare to be fully present in the live workshops, where there are polls, sticky notes, breakout rooms, role plays.

Practice with a cohort of peers

You will soon forget about the methodolgy without the practice. You will meet people in similar career stages and learn together.

Be ready with a buffet of small group exercises, challenges, coaching, critique, role plays where you can apply the frameworks you learnt.

Access to growing resources

You will have a free year access to a community full of resources, case studies, scripts, stories of how to deal with different workplace communication challenges. 

Ask questions, join events, build relationship, leverage the resources. This is a tribe.
