The biggest challenge of Communication is the illusion that it happened.
"Green Elephant's communication workshops have been the core of our acceleration programs for founders and CEO's to build and lead high performing teams and shine on stage when pitching. These skills are crucial for any startup company, and especially when they are working with Social Impact."
Anna Dementyeva - Program Manager at xEdu Startup Accelerator
In this Bootcamp you learn how to overcome the 5 Barriers of Communication which hinders how we are being understood and remembered.
What do you learn?
In this module you will learn for example how to:
Use tangibility, senses and emotions to get your message across.
Use modern neuroscience and ancient storytelling to be understood and remembered.
Manage your ego triggers and understand different ego-roles of the others.
Use tangible communication, such as doodling to make your communication more influential and impactful.
Be aware of your intrinsic needs and values and how to bridge potential value-gaps between people.
How is this done?
We use learner-centred Flipped Learning which means that all theory content will be studied online, outside of the workshops. In a flipped pedagogy, you watch online lectures, collaborate in online conversations and reflection with the guidance of Green Elephant coaches before the workshops. The face2face workshops focus fully on implementing these communication skills into action with, roleplays, pair exercises, group dialogue and individual reflection. You get support after the workshops to grow these new skills into habits by online activations and personal coaching.
What is included in this Bootcamp?
Online learning materials
You get access to all GBR online theory materials, which is total 3-4 hours of videos, questionnaires and guided reflection.
Access to Online Classroom
In this online classroom (Howspace) you'll get additional learning materials and you collaborate in online conversations with the other participants and Green Elephant coaches.
Questionnaire to map your individual starting point and learning objectives.
Two-day interactive workshop
These two 6h workshops are hosted by two Green Elephant's coaches. The main language in the Workshops is English but you can use Finnish in the exercises and pair reflections. Workshops include Asian buffet lunch and coffee/tea all day.
Printed GBR Manuals
All key information is collected into an easy-to-use manual that you can use later in your work.
Online "personal trainer" activation
In order for these new skills to grow into beneficial habits, you are supported after the workshops with online activations, reminders and challenges to really start using Conscious Communication in your daily work.
Online Coaching session
Each module includes one personal coaching session with a Green Elephant coach. In this session you can ask questions, get help to prepare an important communication situation or debrief a situation that you need clarity on.
Questionnaire to evaluate the learning impact after independent practise time to see how you reached the set objectives.
Blue Force - Qualification
After you have completed all required learning objectives, you will qualify as a "Blue Jedi" and you qualify to join the next learning modules and you are welcome into Green Elephant's Alumni Community.
How is this any different to other corporate communication trainings?
We are not boring.
This means that there are no tedious theory sessions. You'll study the theory in your own time before the workshop with high-quality online videos. In the workshop, you'll learn in an engaging and energising hands-on way, not just by listening. Our trainers educate and entertain at the same time.
We use only behavioural models - not personality models.
We don’t put people in a box. You always have the freedom to choose the way you behave and communicate.
We use action-learning.
Everything you learn can be implemented instantly in your daily work and personal life, with a “personal-trainer” like approach after the trainings through email activations.
We are ethically and psychologically safe.
This means that our team develops, customises and delivers training and coaching covering the widest range of communication expertise in the industry. The core is the psychological and emotional safety of the participants so that they can to learn how to deal with even tricky and difficult topics.
Who is this for?
While conscious communication can benefit everyone, it will probably most resonate with TEAL organisations and those that embrace philosophies such as Agile, Lean and Sociocracy 3.0. If you’re interested in cultivating a growth mindset in your company and want to make a change towards self-management, this is for you. We bring conscious communication tools and templates, inspirational examples and technical training in the GreenBlueRed® framework to: Leaders, Sales Agents, Start-up Entrepreneurs, Investors, Negotiators, Politicians, Conflict Mediators, Facilitators, Coaches, Trainers, Teachers, Coaches, Hosts, Harvesters, Care-givers, Therapists and Consultants.
Who are we?
Green Elephant was founded on the belief that a better future can only be achieved through better communication. To do this we need to upgrade the quality of our exchanges, to make our communication more effective and respectful. We believe this can be achieved by empowering driven individuals and organisations with the right tools and techniques, which they can use to benefit from the collective intelligence of their communities. Our practices are based on the GreenBlueRed® framework and designed to enable meaningful conversations, both online and face-to-face.

Next steps - The Jedi Journey
"As a consultant, this online theory with the corporate Jedi Learning Journey was the most inspiring and useful training I have ever attended. I could apply some of the techniques the next day and I could immediately measure its impact with my colleagues and clients."
Marcio Soriano - Design Lead, Digital McKinsey at McKinsey & Co.
The broader Conscious Communication training package, playfully called The Jedi Journey, consists of several independent modules which you can book tickets to. As the modules will build your Conscious Communication skills gradually, like Jedi Forces, there is an order on how to take this Learning Journey.

Red Conflict BootCamp
Red Sales BootCamp
