Cindy Dachuk

We wear many hats but then, it`s likely that you do as well.  Know that whatever services we are providing our focus is always on improvement. How can we help you do better, your team perform better, your corporation get better results.  Period.  It`s that simple.  Whether through our coaching, our training programs and seminars, our books or consulting with you on projects we add value by focusing on behavioural improvement.

If there is one common thread that runs throughout our offerings (because we do get asked!) it rests in Cindy`s expertise in and understanding of Body Language.  This inevitably filters into everything she has a hand in… how could it not?  It’s an element of who we are that gives us a unique perspective (and perhaps even advantage) when delivering our services.

What Are You Saying About You?

Six seconds. It takes approximately six seconds to tie a shoelace, six seconds to open one letter, butter one slice of bread and it takes six short seconds to make a first impression.

All things considered, this is not a lot of time within which to convey a lot of information about you. Yet people will make assumptions about you within these few short seconds. My role is to inspire you to gain the confidence and build the tools to be able to sell yourself!

Dr. Albert Mehrabian of UCLA found that there are three key elements that
combine to create a first impression

If you refer to the percentages above, you will notice that the content of what you say is not nearly as important as how you say it, or even how you look saying it.  Yet, most professionals focus more of their time on the content of their presentation rather than on the other two elements.  They are inadvertently overlooking the power of the non-verbal communication and risking success as a result. Creating a strong first impression requires you to strategically refine the image you portray by aligning the vocal and visual elements with the message that you want to deliver.  The consistency of the message is the key.
