Clear and effective team communications
Is communication in your company troublesome? Do you ever wonder why you just can’t agree with each other? Are you looking for the right way of communicating within your company?
In this masterclass you will gain insight into the underlying causes and the tools to communicate well, especially in difficult situations, for example:
- How do you talk to each other in conflict situations;
- How do you deal with (extreme) relational and transactional people;
- The five languages of appreciation in the workplace;
- How a first impression works and how to fix a wrong first impression;
- Dealing with angry people.
With 11 simple tools you teach your team how to become more powerful with clear and honest communication. You learn how to strengthen relationships and how to repair damaged relationships.
Do employees struggle to fulfill their role? Or do employees have difficulty in shaping their new position? Then they probably struggle with a lack of clarity within the business.
As a leader, you remove this ambiguity by applying the indispensable ingredients for good leadership: establishing and casting vision, jointly propagating the mission and building the team capacity to perform optimally. With the aim that every employee in his role can take responsibility and lead.
These are topics that will be discussed:
- The goal of leadership;
- The qualities of a good leader;
- The indispensable ingredients for leadership;
- Method for effective meetings;
- Dealing with customers and other stakeholders, especially in difficult situations.
Through insight and tools you teach your employees to take responsibility and lead from their own position.
Do you have employees who do not take initiative or responsibility? Do you have employees who negatively influence the culture of your business? And is the growth of your company stagnating? Then you need the 5-step method for business growth.
In this 5-step method you will work with successive organizational models. You learn how these relate to different leadership styles, from strong control to empowerment and letting go. This way you work towards a high-performing team. Fundamental decisions are necessary in this process, for example for employees who show undesirable behavior.
These are the main topics that will be covered:
- Five organizational models, from visionary to continuous improvement;
- The requirements for a high-performing team;
- Building a high-performing team using the 5-step method.
You achieve continuous improvement because every employee participates in the joint strategic direction. Then work, planning and fun go together and are automatically followed by profit and growth.
Making “leadership for business growth” lasting
Have you gone through the steps for business growth but are team members left behind who do not go along with the change? Are initiatives and plans of employees not being implemented? Do you want an enduring culture of initiation of change and leadership by every employee?
Cultural change can only take effect permanently if it is embraced and empowered by the team. To make good use of this change process, you coach your team by having each individual draw up an action plan. In this way you empower your team to take personal responsibility and become the authentic leader they want to be. Then it becomes possible that the achievement of personal goals and the achievement of organizational goals go together.
To become a good personal leader and to find your own place within the team, these are the most important keys of this masterclass:
- Clear long-term planning;
- Accountability to teammates;
- Have no trouble with a certain degree of transparency.
The result is that the team members each take their place in the business and motivate themselves to jointly stay on course.
NB: We strongly recommend that you first follow the masterclass “Organizational growth“.

Transformational leadership is to put it modestly, a tremendous book and training that we apply on a daily basis, personally as well as professionally. For me it has been a revelation and I appreciate LYDIA Connect for this awesome knowledge.
I am very happy that I followed this TL-training! A lot of valuable information that encourages reflection and is immediately applicable in practice. With your open attitude you have started the conversations. Thanks!

Leaders, concerned more with their own reputation for personal greatness, often fail to set the company up for success in the next generation. – Jim Collins (adapted)
LYDIA Connect says this world is in a leadership crisis: many of today’s leaders care more about themselves and their image than about those who follow them. Our TL-Training addresses this crisis. This unique training empowers mutual relationships and removes constraints, resulting in clear goals and better performance. Explore for yourselves!

Once we learned to deal with constraints, we’ve been able to move through difficult situations much more effectively with little to no down time. It is now much easier to deal with tough customers and employees—and every company has them.
Do you know that feeling? Staying within a confined space where what you need is lacking?
It is time to explore the changes you desire in order to be an authentic leader!
As a trades person, the woman Lydia from Thyatira who lived around 50 AC decided to move to Philippi, a Roman colony and trade city in Macedonia. The reason for doing that was marketing; the Roman emperor had decided that only high Roman officials were allowed to wear purple. To sell the precious purple of her city Thyatira, she decided to move to Philippi, the place where she could reach her customers, the high Roman officials. Philippi was a Roman colony on the major east-west trade route, the Egnation Highway, between Rome and Asia. Lots of tradespersons traveled behind the Roman army at the Egnation Highway and brought products into Rome and further into the Roman empire. Lydia made a very strategic choice to settle in Philippi and soon she sold her purple to the Roman court and developed friendly relations with people from the Roman court. Besides the spatial borders she also went beyond personal constraints, attending gatherings where she met new people and was exposed to new ideas and beliefs. We believe Lydia was a woman of exceptional leadership, intentionally delivering generational business.
We want to connect you with this kind of Lydia leadership, healthy leadership, delivering good solutions, improving this world and providing generational continuity.
Our company LYDIA Connect is now officially registered since 20 April 2018. We are honoured to offer you four services: transformational leadership training, export readiness training, consultancy and events. Stay tuned!
Our company has seen a 50% growth in revenue solely due to the TL-training and employees being more productive and enjoying their professional lives as well as their personal lives.
I was blown away how total commitment to transparency combined with openness, warmth and a clear strategy makes business leadership so successful. Never before in my life did I experience this kind of leadership and I could immediately connect.
Highly recommended for anyone who longs for healthy leadership, change and wholeness for their own organization. Tiemen and Monique, thank you for bringing this to the Netherlands. I look forward to a huge impact!

The last couple of months we have further developed our training services and launched new coaching services.

Have a wonderful day!
As a leader you will function more effectively (and have way more fun!) when you create an environment that brings all the ingredients that you need together. Challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone and to expect the unexpected!
Often we are so in the moment that we cannot really see what is going on, especially when under pressure. That is why we advise you to keep asking for honest feedback from your team, peers and leaders to keep improving. Not all feedback may be true, but all feedback is relevant!
You have to see it (knowledge), in order to own it (attitude) and then you can change it (behaviour)! All change starts with seeing it! Even stronger…, no relational or organisational change will happen without: see it, own it and change it.
Winston Churchill proved to be a solid leader during the second world war. He said: “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. He understood the principle that a crisis also provides opportunities; meant for good, not evil. I want to challenge you during this Covid-19 crisis to really think about the good things that can come out of this. Remember, we, you and me, are in control of making the good happen!
Don’t fall into the evil trap of anxiety, instead, grab yourself together, connect with others and start thinking in possibilities and opportunities. As relationships are the most valuable assets we have, treasure these! Find ways, use technology, to connect.
This week we will publish a tool, for free, to analyse your possibilities during and after this crisis.
In case you want help, we are there for you! Contact us: email@example.com.
