Communication Course

 


"Communicating For Success"


Question:
Who communicates for a living?

Answer: Everybody! If You Live on Planet Earth, You Communicate For a Living.

So how important does it become to have good communication skills? Communication can be the Number #1 determinant to your success; more important than knowledge, academics or experience. No one is saying these other areas aren't important, but if you can't get your message out, how much you know becomes irrelevant. Have you ever had someone say "I'm not sure I understand what you mean" or "been in a conversation where somehow it becomes confrontational and emotionally charged and you're not sure what to do?" How good are you at "dealing with conflict?"

How well you communicate will directly affect your ultimate level of success or failure in any situation. So I invite you to come and participate in a fun and interactive class where you will learn great tips and techniques on how to bolster your "skills" and fill up your "communication tool box."

*Who should attend: Anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding in how to communicate with others professionally, personally or socially.

In addition, learn the Brain Science behind how you can change your thinking to support getting your desired outcomes, and discover what holds you back from accomplishing your goals in life.

*Bonus: If you are in the fitness industry and are already a graduate from Canfitpro holding any of the following designations; PTS, FIS, NWS, NWL, OAS, PFS, you are eligible to receive 4 CEC's from Canfitpro upon completion of this course.

Horizon Oil Sands Fire Department (Canadian Natural Resources Limited):

"Mark - Our silo group of shifts found a little more alignment today. We are a better group for this training. Thanks"
- Bob Slade  - Chief

"The program has brought unity, cohesiveness and understanding through the team. Coach Mark facilitated the program in such a way to ensure that the material was tailored to match our department."
- Eric St. Pierre  - Deputy Chief

"I've really enjoyed the sessions. Building the trust and humanizing my co-workers to a point where I can work with them rather than beside them. I've gone through a lot of personal changes due to the sessions. I feel as though I've improved as an Officer because of them."
- Jesse Paulin   -  Training Officer

"Very good course." "I highly recommend it." "Would like to see a follow up at least once a year to recap all the info."

- Benjamin Shenton - Platoon Chief

"It forced a lot of conversation that has been needed for a decade. Dysfunction has reigned supreme for a long time, but we've done the best with what we had. Junior members grew into senior members and brought all the damage with them on the way up. These sessions with Coach Mark forced the Senior team to lay out all the decay on the table and analyze the problem. Then set the path towards resolving those issues. If I were to start another department I would have this course at the beginning instead of after it was already broken. Unfortunately, I think it was the experience of having seen it come apart that truly revealed the value of the information."

We are on a path that will allow us to truly serve others as they change their lives, but Coach Mark was able to show us how to connect all the dots to be brilliant leaders in our industry. His caring and compassionate personality resonate with me and my own personal values on how to put our best out into his world."

"He is truly an authentic, dynamic and kind-hearted soul. Thanks Mark!!"

 - Krista Zaft    Fit Chicx Connection

"Dynamite Coaching is definitely a course I would suggest for any age group. Coach Mark has such a vibrant personality, it’s truly a delight to have been able to experience his teachings. He draws you into his course and his words. He keeps your attention even if you’re doodling (which you’re welcomed to do!). I just recently finished my first year at NAIT and I tried to pay attention but it was difficult. If Coach Mark was my teacher, I probably would’ve retained a lot more information. Coach Mark gets down on your level and gave everyone in the group that I was with something special of their own to remember. He’s remarkable, I cannot wait for my next session with him!"

“ Coach Marks course description Does not quite accurately explain how valuable and impactful it truly is. It has given me insight on where I can grow with concrete strategies and tools for me to move towards being a better wife, mother, leader, and employee. The day was filled with a lot of aha moments. Some of which  I could reflect on where poor communication may have lead to issues in the past while at the same time it  gave me the knowledge to know how to communicate effectively for a greater result. I left feeling empowered and excited knowing that by taking this course the benefits it will have on myself and others I communicate will be astronomical. Thank you Mark”

"I have been struggling with all of life's changes ever since I was young. I grew up in a home where yelling was how you got your point across. Through the years I would have people tell me they were scared of me. This was after I had been being bullied and treated badly by people that were supposed to care for me because I was shy and timid. Having people scared of me didn't bother me at first, but after a while it made me feel bad. That is not how I wanted people to see me. So I took steps to change. I got involved in fitness as I wanted to help others feel good about themselves cause I knew what it was like to feel terrible about yourself. My progress and road came with 2 big hurdles. The birth of my daughters. I then put everything on hold so that I could do everything for them. I was happy, but miserable cause as most moms know, you don't get much time for yourself and you don't get much sleep. I couldn't  communicate what I needed or how I felt in a way that was understood by other. But during the "Communicate For Success" class with Coach Mark I had numerous moments where the light bulb came on and I said to myself "ahhh" I Get It! I realized that "I was important" and the way I was communicating with myself reflected and impacted all of the interactions and relationships around me. I feel I now have the tools and the knowledge to not only positively impact myself and my well-being, but that of my two girls. And it doesn't stop there because my growth is not limited, It Is Endless!!

Amber Hiebert - Single mother of two, Fitness Coach and Instructor

"I think that this past weekend was the one that very well might have changed my life. Letting go of a job that has provided me with more money then I ever thought was possible and embarking into a career/lifestyle that  promotes positivity, health, fitness and helping people. I knew it wasn't going to be easy to go back to school and step out of my comfort zone. So I decided about a month ago that I wanted to make a change in the world and in order for that to happen I needed to change myself.  Meaning that I needed to change my habits, vision of the world, and how I treat people in general. Whether they are family, friends or just some jerk driving down the road. Changing myself would be the centre point in moving forward for a better life. Along with meeting Coach Mark is another amazing man that I had the pleasure to meet this past weekend was Mark Campbell(owner of Marked Improvement) A guy that you can see really cares about people, the world and people's overall health. In meeting these two big shot Marks hahaha, I have been reassured that this Journey  I'm about to take is possible and there really are great guys on this earth; Good, charismatic, happy and healthy guys that don't care what others think of them and do what they love to empower people around the world. So that's what I have learned from this course with Coach Mark; that even a big oil patch swearing guy can let his feelings out and live his life the way he wants to. By loving, helping, caring and listening we can all make a change in this world and you learn the tools on how to do that by taking this course. If you want an overall better outcome in life take this course. If you want to cut stress, anger, and misery out of your life Coach Mark's course is your starting point."

"If you would like to take away real tools, real examples and learn how to apply that to your everyday life, Coach Mark's "Communicate For Success" class is a must! Walk away and take control of how, why and more importantly realize again why communication is the root of all things.

Maria Daskalakis 

 

 "I was taking the Nutrition and Wellness course with Can Fit Pro and a guest speaker Mark Marcynuk spoke to us about a communications course that he teaches with regard to consulting with clients.  I always thought I had a good rapport with people and my existing clients but I thought I would like to have as many great tools as I could to overcome objections with clients."

 "Not only did I feel like I added to my career “toolbox”, but I feel like Mark helped me tap in to how to communicate better with my friends and family.  Delivery of the course was excellent and engaging.  I believe it is something everyone should experience no matter what field of work they are in;  an invaluable asset to my career and daily life."

 Shanaz Iyer B. Ed.      Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Consultant

 

"I attended a 6.5 hour day course last Saturday about communication.  The course was highly recommended so I thought it could be a useful experience.  I was curious as to exactly how it might be of use to me.  Human beings are social.  How well we communicate with others is fundamental to our lives.  We communicate with our kids, our parents, our siblings/relatives, our neighbours, our co-workers, our clients/customers, etc.  Everyone is unigue and will take away useful things in their own way.  I am confident everyone will find the course well worth their time and money."

"Coach Mark's course really helped me to understand how to listen to and understand other people better so I can be a better Fitness Instructor, Nutrition & Wellness Coach and friend. I found the course very engaging, empowering and useful in so many ways - from personal relationships to professional ones. The information provided was taught in a very practical way, enabling me to start using the techniques and seeing results almost immediately. I feel like what I learned has given me the tools to enrich many people's lives, along with my own. What an amazing gift. Thanks Mark!"

"Attending Coach Mark’s course made me recognize my toxic self-doubt and put downs within my daily discussions, and now I not only make the conscious effort to ‘rephrase’ my wording, and use my tones but also count my wins. I found this useful for not only my personal life, but for how I conduct my business as well. Implementing the changes, and ideas Coach Mark has shared with me has helped me with my communication. This course exceeded all of my expectations and I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in personal and business growth to Coach Mark."

Kaitlyn Chapman                       Personal Fitness Trainer 

 

"I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 day course with Mark! His enthusiasm was totally contagious and the material itself was interesting and something we can all use in our daily life on every level. I found I started using the techniques right away at home and saw immediate feedback from my family! I than tried it out in the world on day 2 and saw the immediate difference it makes which left me feeling thrilled! Not only did it make others feel good, but I felt amazing!!"

  "In short I found it was information that “stuck” with you and inspired you to want to be a better listener as well as understanding the POWER OF PERCEPTION!! It’s simple concepts with powerful results!"

 "Thanks Mark!! You truly have a gift, that is easy to see…. I look forward to learning lots more!!"

 "This course should be a compulsory part of our High School Curriculum and it should be included as part of basic training for all professionals. I recently had the honour of attending this course as part of Canfitpro’s continuing education for personal trainers. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the skills I acquired during this course will not only help me in my professional life but they will (and have already) come in handy in my family life and more particularly in communicating with my two teenaged children."   "Thanks Mark!"

"I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful course, not only was it informative but it was fun as well! The combination of your knowledge and incredibly engaging personality made me feel as if I was spending time with friends and not participating in a course. If you would ever like to use me as a reference I would be honored to do this for you. I have taken a ton of courses in my day but yours was the best I have ever taken."

 "Thank you once again for being you and making my weekend a huge success!"

 I recently attended a Communication Skills course with Mark Marcynuk (Coach Mark). The course was outstanding and very high energy. The content could be used in all areas of life for understanding how and why we communicate the way we do and how to improve those skills. I have been incorporating those new skills into my day to day life since the course with amazing results."

 "I highly recommend the course for everyone."

“After your course, with all the new techniques you taught, I have made some big changes in my life. I have ended a 5yr relationship, best decision I've made in a long time. I’m moving forward with a vision of my health goals. Amanda Campbell of Marked Improvement (my best friend) has been a wonderful coach with the personal training sessions, but also with my personal goals within myself and relationships. I have reconciled with my Mother, learning how to communicate with her characteristics has been a challenge, but one totally worth taking on. Learning your techniques, has shown me that all the answers are within myself, it has really transformed me, into becoming a believer in myself. I've always had the "pay it forward" attitude, but with the coach like approach course, I now know how to "change the world one conversation at a time!" And I will! "

While I was enrolled in a Personal Training course, one Saturday afternoon, Coach Mark came in to do a quick presentation on life coaching. As he talked about how to ‘become a change agent’ and how it can help you to communicate differently and ultimately making a difference in the lives of others; I was immediately intrigued to see for myself just how this could make a difference in my life and how it could help me to become a better communicator. It was at this time, when I was debating with myself on whether or not I should take this course that I said to myself “I am as only as good as the opportunities that I take…this is an opportunity to improve my communication with others.”

 “As the course progressed, I noticed a big change in myself. First I noticed that I was better able to get over my initial anxiety when approaching new situations because I now had the tools on how to communicate with others in a more productive and progressive way. I was better able to gain information on what it is others were looking for and how they saw themselves getting there – I became a ‘change agent’. I immediately began using the ‘formula for change’ and I have been using it every day since in all areas of my life. I changed my entire life without changing a thing; I just learnt how to better communicate more effectively.”

 “Before I had met Coach Mark, I had always thought of myself as having a bit of difficulty when meeting new people in certain situations. I would find myself becoming increasingly overcome with anxiety leading up to the event; it did not seem to matter what event it was. All of this was due to my own lack of self-confidence in my communication skills with others. Coach Mark took the time to allow me to explore how life coaching can first make a change within. Since taking this course, I have become a ‘change agent’ for myself first and foremost. I took the time to invest in myself and therefore it has shown me how to more effectively take time and invest in the lives of others…all the while underscoring the importance of effective communication with others.”

 With Sincere Gratitude,

Laurie Buffalo

 

 “I took Coach Mark's course during my first ever 'career change' and I am glad I did!  Having worked as a chauffeur for 17 years, it was time to follow my passion of working in the Fitness Industry.  Coach Mark's course will help me connect with my clients.  I know I will have a 'leg up' in the industry, after taking Coach Mark's course.  Take it - you will not be disappointed.”

 “I recently had the privilege to attend a course given by Coach Mark called The Coach Approach. What an incredible learning experience. I found Coach Mark to be a very charismatic instructor; engaging, energetic and informative. The course really armed me with amazing tools for effectively communicating with others. I came away from the course with skills I not only use in my work as a personal trainer but also skills that I found particularly relevant in my office job and in my everyday life. You really learn how to deal with difficult people and diffuse volatile situations. I learned how to ask the right questions and in such a way that I am able to really get people to give even more than their best! I find that I now have the expertise to really get the most out of my clients, co-workers and people around me.”

“Learning about the power of visualization has been especially eye-opening. I have a friend who was a in a bad relationship for five years because she just couldn’t see her life any other way.  I was able to coach her into visualizing herself and her situation in a different light and really concentrate and focus on that image. Her vision of her new life was so strong and so clear that she was finally able to end a long, destructive relationship and finally achieve true happiness. What a profound effect to have had on someone’s life.”

“I am constantly sharing the things I learned from the Coach Approach and have found that people always have a way to incorporate these same skills into their lives. There’s always room for learning better ways to communicate with one another and Coach Mark taught me just that!”
