About this activity

This comprehensive workshop is an interactive experience in which each participant has the opportunity to assess their own communication skills. In her charming, bubbly, and skillful style, Heather will show your team how to embrace their power to change the way that they communicate with themselves and with others. Everyone will take part in fun experiments to see the power of communication at home, at work, and in their personal lives.   Attendees will leave her presentations excited about their ability to credibly advocate for themselves and their ideas, to build trust, and to lead with confidence. In short, they’ll leave with the power to Win With Words!

*note* this talk can be customized for: leadership, women, and healthcare providers.

About Heather

Heather Hansen knows how to communicate to win. She's an award-winning trial attorney, defending doctors before juries in medical malpractice cases for over 20 years. She’s communicated her way to success as a lawyer, an advocate, a counselor, a mediator, and a TV host, appearing on channels such as CNN, NBC, and Fox News. Heather draws upon her personal experiences in the courtroom and in life, as well as her psychology degree, her training as a mediator, and the most current research, to lead participants to their best communication practices.

After seeing her speak and captivate audiences at numerous national meetings over the past 10 years, I booked Heather to deliver a keynote address on medical malpractice to a large group of orthopedic spine and neurosurgeons. She was the highlight of our meeting…incredibly well-prepared and insightful while eliciting lots of questions and great discussion.

What to expect

What do a rubber band, a blindfold, and a coffee cup have to do with communication? Participants will find out! Through a series of short exercises, Heather will show how everyone can tackle their communication issues from the ground up.

THE RUBBER BAND
Self-talk
An experiment with a rubber band shows how the words we use when we talk to ourselves can change our life experience.

THE BLINDFOLD
Relationships
How can a blindfold change our personal relationships? It’s not what you think! Learn the power of empathy to affect personal relationships and gain tools to tap into it.

THE COFFEE CUP
Work
Most people work with others in some capacity. In this exercise, everyone will learn the power of perspective, and how to use it both 1) to advocate for themselves and 2) to adapt their communication to individual situations.

    [Heather] gave a wonderful talk on how better communication between doctor and patient can lead to better results. I was very enthused by her passion for improving the lives of both patients and healthcare staff; she does not react as one would typically expect a lawyer to behave.
