Cross-cultural Communication Training for Engineering and Technical
Training and Coaching for highly-motivated engineers and technical professionals on the leadership track who need to achieve a clear, confident, authentic cross-cultural communication style in English that builds rewarding relationships
What does it take to become a cross-cultural thought-leader?
(an article from LinkedIn, June 2020)
You already speak English well, but do you want to create an English communication style that levels the playing field with those engineering leaders that you so admire?
I invite you to book a free 30-minute in-depth assessment meeting with me in which I will help you understand your communication style and the steps you need to take to improve for the leadership track. If you are a good fit for my program, I’ll share the details with you. And if you’re not, you will still walk away with some insights about your communication style and how to achieve your goals.

Start now to Master Your Clarity. Here are 3 x instructional videos that you can watch for free:
Video #1: "Three Steps To Help You Convey Your Name Clearly and Confidently the First Time" so that people understand it, can pronounce it, and remember it whether you have a foreign sounding name, or not.
Video #2: “Communicate Your Address Clearly” Typically, we are giving our address to strangers and/or over the phone - customers, prospective employers, government officials, etc. Clarity is the key to trust and the first impressions that establish your career, close the sale, and allow you to collaborate on projects.
Video #3: “Communicate your Phone Number Clearly”. There may be several reasons why your listener might not understand your phone number. He may speak English as a second language too; there may be ambient noise in the room; she may have been distracted by a malfunctioning pen while you were dictating your phone number. Use these strategies to clearly communicate your phone number every time.

"Thank you for making English learning such a positive experience for me. With your patience, I am not afraid to make mistakes on my pronunciations and do not feel awkward to repeat practices with you in order to reduce my accent. I am also motivated by your creative teaching, which encourages me to apply the communication skills I learnt from you in my daily life.""
"The instructor was able to adapt the course to our needs in the most effective and professional way. Her positive attitude and continuous encouragement made the lessons a very enjoyable experience. The material and information covered has significantly impacted my academic and professional activities to reach my desired goals."
"Christal is an excellent instructor. She was well organized, thorough and creative in her ideas. Christal was highly respected by both students and colleagues in the program and demonstrated high professionalism throughout….we have offered Christal another teaching contract"
"I really enjoy Christal’s training style. Her feedback is always supportive and helpful. She really cares about helping me with my specific communication issues. Now, I am much more aware of how to optimize my communication style to engage others and develop strong relationships. "
"Thank you so much for your advice! It is incredible that you pointed out areas (in my business correspondence) that make a lot of sense now. I am going to rewrite them."
"We appreciated Christal’s diverse background and experience during a recent one-week substitute-teaching contract. While she was subbing for us, our program was terminated. Christal agreed to be responsible for preparation and delivery of CLB assessments for reading comprehension, writing, and listening/speaking skills for a CLB 3-4 class, which she completed by the end of the week. These assessments assisted us in determining our students’ levels for placement in new schools."
Great memories of clients and others who have touched my life.
