Post Rating:

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Workplace Communication Expert Skip Weisman has created a new LinkedIn group for business leaders, executives, HR managers and project managers who want to increase employee motivation, productivity and retention by improving workplace communication and culture.

Inside this new “Workplace Communication Strategies Group” at, Weisman reveals how he has led professional baseball franchises to record-breaking fan attendance and profits. In fact, he turned around 2 struggling franchises to become Organizations of the Year. He’s built a 3 million dollar franchise from scratch in less than 3 years. And, now he’s taken his leadership and workplace communication experience to the corporate boardroom and small business environment.

When asked why he created this new LinkedIn group, Weisman, who celebrated his 10th anniversary in business on October 1, said, “Through studying organizational leadership communication for the last 10 years, and identifying the mistakes I learned as a young leader, I know that a leader’s communication style can directly sabotage and undermine the building of much needed trusting relationships. It saddens me when I discover that organizations which have lots of potential fall victim to poor leadership communication mistakes that are ruining employee morale. It hurts worse when I know, it could have been avoided.”

The information revealed inside this group is invaluable as Scott Ginsberg, The Name Tag Guy, says, “Skip doesn’t just know good communication — he lives it. His ideas are practical, applicable and will help professionals do what they do better, stronger and in a more memorable way.

Some of Weisman’s client successes include:

1. Increasing a 132-year-old insurance agency’s revenue by 33% by showing them how to transform their negative work environment into a championship, high-performing team culture. This client’s case study is found inside this group.
2. Helping a nonprofit organization with a budget of 1.7 million dollars and a staff of 12 full-time employees and 28 part-time employees improve their overall communication and focus on the organization’s vision, which enabled them to triple their size. This client’s case study is also found inside Weisman’s group.

Along with getting Weisman’s workplace communication tips, tools and strategies, inside his group you will also find:

* Proven workplace communication templates, assessments and systems.
* Case studies such as the “Costs of Avoidance and Toleration in the Workplace.”
* Controversial articles such as: “The Communication Model Taught During the Last 40 Years Is a Bunch of Crock!”
