Fletcher focuses on marketing holistically, the entire image and communication plan of a company. She encourages companies to consider who their target is. She helps find influencers and works with the business to build “real”ationships that lead to “real”sults.

We all could use a formula for those touchy situations in which you’d like someone to change their behavior. We know what doesn’t work: blowing up or ignoring it and hoping the problem goes away. Effective strategies to asking for and getting what you want is key to building productive working relationships.

  • How to confront others with behavior that is interfering with your work, consuming your time, or costing you money.
  • How to use a four-part assertion message that enhances interpersonal communication skills and builds a more productive working relationship.
  • How to properly speak up in meetings, not push your own ideas too hard,
    and not or discount the opinions of others.
  • These are the elements needed to effectively and confidently ask for
    what you want and build more productive working relationships.
