EVERYONE HAS AN ACCENT. WHILE IT CAN DIFFERENTIATE YOU, IT CAN ALSO UNDERMINE YOUR COMMUNICATION EFFECTIVENESS.

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO.

Effective communication can be challenging if a heavy regional accent or foreign dialect presents an obstacle to your being understood. When there are legal ramifications for communication errors, for yourself or a client, Accent Reduction training will help facilitate clear, effective communication, while still respecting your cultural identity.

POINTS OF FOCUS
STYLE OF ASSESSMENT
As part of this program, we’ll discuss your personal communication goals to ensure that all accent changes are in keeping with those goals. You’ll practice words using the particular sound individually, in phrases and sentences. You'll also learn rhythm, stress and inflection of American pronunciation.

BENEFITS FOR INDIVIDUALS
Accent reduction helps you to remove communications barriers and reduce miscommunications, allowing you to speak with confidence, clarity, and authority. You can spend more time sharing ideas and less time repeating yourself, as listeners grasp your message with ease. This, in turn, increases the potential for winning new business, seizing opportunities for career advancement, and more.

BENEFITS FOR ORGANIZATIONS
Accent Reduction training helps to remove communication barriers within your organization, fostering appreciation for different cultures and allowing more diverse talent to advance into senior leadership positions. This can result in increased productivity and efficiency, as well as increased national and international business opportunities.
