About the “Delta Model”
The “Delta Model” is a proprietary communication development process that Dan has refined over his 20 years of business consulting. It’s based on the fundamental assumption that every time leaders talk, they have an opportunity to deepen relationships, inspire others, and drive an organization forward. The “Delta Model” challenges leaders to identify the precise response they hope to create—acceptance, belief, action—as well as the reality, needs, dreams, and fears of the people they talk to, before they “organize content.” The process defines messages, supporting ideas, and graphic materials that advocate and convince, never merely inform. The “Delta Model” also helps leaders identify and practice the key physical choices each individual must make in order to have maximum impact and comfort, as well as to make strong connections in every important communication.
Dan applies his expertise in strategic thinking and strategic delivery to help you prepare for the most critical communication inflection points your company experiences. He works with you to develop messages, simplify and add punch and value to supporting visuals, use your body and voice as tools for communicating authority and energy, and connect authentically with the people you talk to.
Dan leads small- and large-group customized, skill-building seminars and workshops in half-day, full-day, and two-day increments.
Your corporate gatherings must create experiences that do more than entertain. Whether you are launching a new product, merging companies, developing relationships with key partners, or re-charging the troops, Dan’s interactive, engaging talks will challenge you to think about business issues in a new way.
