Want to lead with unrivalled clarity, turning your strategy into seamless execution? At ABA, we’ve designed what we believe is the best executive communication training in the world.

There’s a problem with most communication programs today – they’re loaded with hefty theoretical concepts and jargon that leaves you scratching your head, wondering how to actually apply any of it when you’re in the thick of it at work.

As a business owner, you don’t need more theory. What is more important and more valuable is training that’s practical, evidence-based, and that gets results. You want something that helps you navigate the challenges you face daily, equipping you with adaptable skills to handle diverse situations and stakeholders.

That’s where we at ABA come in. We spotted this gap in traditional communication training and we’ve done something about it. After years of effort, we’ve developed a unique approach that combines science and hands-on practice.

Read on to discover why traditional training falls short and how our unique approach is changing the game in executive communication.

The Shortcomings of Traditional Executive Communication Training

Avoid the common pitfalls of traditional executive communication skills training. Here’s the deep-dive into its core issues:

Overwhelming Theoretical Focus

Ditch the information overload common in most training programs. These courses are like academic textbooks, heavy with jargon and complex models that, while intellectually stimulating, offer little in terms of practical application. You might end up well-versed in the theory of rhetoric or non-verbal communication, but when it comes to an unplanned business meeting or a tricky negotiation, you’re left in the lurch.

Absence of Scientific Foundation

Steer clear of training built mostly on anecdotal evidence or the trainer’s personal experiences, instead of hard empirical research or psychological principles. Although these experiences can add value, they don’t provide a sturdy, reliable learning framework. You might find yourself attempting to imitate a trainer’s style or tactics, instead of truly understanding interpersonal communication principles that you can customise to your unique context.

Mismatch with Real-World Scenarios

Evade training that doesn’t mirror the dynamic, unpredictable, and complex scenarios of real-world business communication. You might learn how to craft a perfect presentation or the keys to successful negotiation, but often you’re left ill-equipped for real-life variables – the hard questions, unexpected responses, or sudden change of plans.

In short, traditional executive communication strategies often misses the mark, being overly theoretical, lacking scientific basis, and not matching up to practical business scenarios. The burning question: How do we bridge this gap? At ABA, we believe the solution lies in a totally new take on communication training, a methodology we’ve been honing for years.

The Genesis of The Best Executive Communication Training

Trade outdated, theoretical training for a groundbreaking, science-backed training approach. Here’s what makes our communication training different than everything you’ve probably experienced:

Laying the Foundations with Science

Start by shaking off the old-fashioned, anecdote-driven executive education programs. We knew there was a need for a strategy backed by solid science and practicality. Our goal was clear: no more mimicking styles, it’s about unlocking your own unique communication potential, all with the help of robust scientific insights.

Blending Research and Experience

Then, we dived headfirst into a sea of research on communication, leadership, and professional development. Pairing these findings with our extensive experience in executive education and corporate communication, we forged a path towards an innovative training methodology. It was a union of theory and practice, ensuring our approach was not only academically sound, but also ready to face real-world challenges.

Practice Makes Perfect

But it didn’t stop there. We understood that learning without doing is simply empty knowledge. So, we put the spotlight on practice. Our training isn’t about endless lectures. Instead, we get you stuck into real-life scenarios, building your interpersonal and emotional intelligence through simulations. We prioritise experiencing and doing over passive listening, making our training a 100% practice-based learning experience.

And there you have it. The result? A breakthrough executive communication training program. It’s grounded in science, focuses on practical application, and designed to deliver real improvement in your communication skills. It’s not just about understanding theory; it’s about being ready to take on the world.

Success Stories and Results

Imagine propelling your business to unimaginable heights while becoming a confident and effective communicator. That’s exactly what happened to thousands of business owners after taking our executive communication training.

Mike Haydon: From Cash Flow Problems to Clear Communication

Mike Haydon, Managing Director of an off-grid solar design firm, was drowning in issues: people problems, cash flow difficulties, and communication chaos. Recognising he was the common denominator, he turned to us for coaching. The results were astounding. In three years, Mike catapulted his business from $250k per year to an impressive $5m. But it wasn’t just about the money. He was less stressed, managed his personal and professional life better, and cultivated stronger communication skills, smoothing operations within his firm.

Here’s what Mike had to say about his transformation:

“If I take a step back and look, it’s been pretty amazing what we’ve achieved in that short period of time, and I’m pretty confident we wouldn’t have achieved this level of success without engaging and working with Mike and the team.”

Kent Manos: Overcoming Stress through Effective Communication

Next, meet Kent Manos, Managing Director of a scaffolding services and labour hire firm in Perth. Even with a business turnover of $1M within a year, Kent grappled with stress, unpredictable behaviour, and difficulties handling critical conversations. Realising he needed help, he sought our coaching.

Identifying his thought patterns and management style as the root of his issues, Kent saw a remarkable shift. In four years, his business turnover jumped from $1M to nearly $10M. He improved relationships in all aspects of his life, enjoyed running his business, and developed communication skills that became one of his greatest strengths.

Kent’s experience with our training speaks volumes:

“The depth of information in these assessments is incredible. Not only have they helped me to hire great employees, but they also provide information I can think with when I’m managing and developing our people. They’ve had a huge impact on my team, and also on my own ability to understand and develop them. Their accuracy is amazing and I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

These success stories aren’t exceptions. They exemplify the transformation our executive communication training can spark. The post-training clarity, effectiveness, and influence in communication have tangible effects on our clients’ personal and professional lives.
