Why Hybrid Training?

Today’s managers are judged on how well they keep
hybrid teams engaged. They also need to project self-assurance, confidence and executive presence with their superiors. Otherwise, they lose buy-in for their projects, miss out on promotions and end up with smaller bonuses. Expert communication skills are critical in business and essential for senior management. When managers acquire these skills, the whole organisation benefits. 

Communication Guru is a multi-modal training program designed to level up managers with essential communications skills. It condenses decades of executive training, the latest communications theory and powerful change management techniques into a series of modules based on solving common challenges in management.

Communication Guru combines live, peer-based training sessions with a learning hub of short-format videos, infographics, audio snippets and other learning aids, delivered by smartphone. Communication Guru uses this hybrid approach to achieve sustainable behavioural change that helps turn managers into leaders.

About Me

Hi, my name is Arabella Macpherson and I have been coaching CEOs, executives and senior leadership teams for over 15 years. My work across industries means that I get insight into the most relevant trends and techniques to train employees. My goal is to quickly identify the challenges, skills required to address them and training to embed those skills effectively.

In 2019, I co-wrote the communication section of Macquarie Uni’s Global Online MBA with over 66,000 participants and an average rating of 4.8/5. Creating training programs that are engaging and get real behavioural change are my thing. I also love walking my dog and quick beach dips in the middle of a video-meeting packed day!
