Why Does Everything Have To Be So Difficult?

Does this sound familiar? You and your team are struggling. At first, you didn't really pay attention to what was going on. You thought things would work out, people would figure things out for themselves. Then you started noticing the complaints from your team. Productivity declined. Good people started leaving your organization. Conflict took hold. Customers began to complain. Before you knew it, there was a decline in your bottom line.

It Doesn't Have To Be This Way

You're tired of the conflict. You're tired of the lack of productivity. You're tired of the chaos. You're just plain tired. You know your people have the potential to excel and grow, you just aren't sure how to develop their communication skills. You need help. You need a plan. You need solutions. You need clarity.

Learn Communication Concepts

Each month, we'll focus on a different topic in communication. You'll learn about subjects such as intergenerational communications, communicating to influence, communicating with difficult people, methods of communication, and active listening skills. Online modules will provide you with an in-depth look at these topics.

Discuss Communication Concepts

Twice a month, we will all get together live online via Zoom and discuss the monthly topic and answer any questions you may have. We'll also discuss how you are implementing the topics into your organization and how you are changing as a leader.

Implement Communication Concepts

Learning doesn't matter much if there's no action attached to it. Each month, you will implement what you are learning and discuss the changes that are happening in your organization because of the changes you are making to your leadership style. 


Communication has been an area that our organization has needed to improve.  A Teague Of Your Own customized a communication skills training program to help our leadership team better communicate with customers, vendors, and our employees. 

Training Customer

Prior to working with A Teague Of Your Own, we had the wrong people in the wrong positions.  The training we received helped us to better communicate as a team.  We made changes and we've been able to grow our company. 

Training  Customer

Jim and Michelle have provided various trainings for many of our locations.  The communication training helped our leaders better understand how to communicate with different generations.  They also can identify different communication styles and preferences.  This has helped our team to be more productive and successful.

Sign up for this course and get this awesome bonus: The Leadership Game! The Leadership Game is fun and engaging, yet it challenges the participants to have open discussions about leadership principles and values. It is designed to help leaders uncover gaps and areas for improvement within their leadership teams.

The leaders and organization in our community have expressed a need for developing communication skills.  Jim and Michelle from A Teague Of Your Own worked with our Greater Latrobe - Laurel Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce to create Leadership Greater Latrobe.  This program provides training for new leaders and helps improve their communication skills. 
Jim and Michelle worked with us to develop a communication training program for our supervisors and managers.  They provided training on communication preferences and styles.  Our leaders are now identifying communication preferences among their team and changing the way they communicate.  This has improved communication throughout our organization.
We brought in A Teague Of Your Own to help our team with the way we communicate to our customers and to the community.  There was a gap between how we defined ourselves and how the public viewed us.  With Jim and Michelle's help, we were able to better communicate who we are and what services we provide.  Our community now knows what we are "for" and how we can assist them.

Communicating Doesn't Have To Be This Hard

When you first started as a business owner or HR professional, you knew you had a lot to offer your team and your community. You value helping others and you wanted to share your knowledge and experience; you wanted to make a difference.

But that isn't how it's worked out for you. Your team is experiencing conflict. People aren't getting along with each other. Goals aren't being met. Productivity is down. The good people you had on your team are leaving because they don't want to be in a toxic environment. Team members are no longer communicating with each other.

Leaders are no longer looking out for their team; they're looking out for themselves. Your organization is full of disunity, frustration, aggravation, confusion, conflict, and chaos. You know it can be better, but you're not sure how to get there. You want your organization to be the thriving, successful place you know it can be.

We understand. We can help you with the changes needed to transform your organization from where you are now to where you want to be. We can help your team learn how to communicate with one another and your customers. We can help your team get on the same page, moving in the same direction, being more productive, and achieving the organization's goals.

We can help you develop both the leaders and the team members within your organization. You can change your organization from the chaos to certainty. We'll show you how.

Leaders at all levels need the ability to connect with their teams to spur them to action. Effective communication is essential for leading in the increasingly diverse workforce. This program helps leaders develop the skills needed to be successful.

Change does not occur in a day; it develops over time. One day seminars are not effective in developing long-term skills and habits. During this year long program, participants learn the skills needed to lead their teams and have opportunities each month to apply what they are learning.

Yes! Our program is set up to focus on a different topic each month. Participants can start at the beginning of each month and work through all twelve lessons over the course of a twelve-month period. Participants access the online learning segment during the first week of the month. During the second week, we meet virtually to discuss the concepts and answer any questions. Week three gives participants the opportunity to put the learning into action by applying the concepts and using them in your organization. Our last week together, we meet again virtually and discuss what changes have occurred because of the learning that has taken place.
