Hi. I’m Scott Holman.
I specialize in teaching under-appreciated business professionals the key communication skills needed to earn attention and respect in the workplace.
I know what it’s like to feel invisible. As a young man, I didn’t excel academically and I had ZERO family connections to give me a head start in life.
I was alone. I knew if I wanted success, I’d have to figure it out for myself.
At first, I put all of my energy into working hard. After all, hard work is how we get ahead in life, right? At least that’s what I’d always heard.
But I found myself frustrated. I was trying to get ahead, yet I was repeatedly overlooked for promotions in favor of others who obviously weren’t working as hard as I was. I knew I had to be missing something.
And then one day, it hit me.
I began observing the people around me who were getting exciting promotions and rising in their careers. They worked hard, sure, but not as hard as me! Yet they were still getting noticed. Why?
I noticed that these people seemed to be connected to the leaders making these decisions. They seemed to be friends. Sure, they were work colleagues, but beneath their surface relationship there was something more—a sense of connection and camaraderie with each other that I seemed to be missing out on. I felt like I was on the outside of a glass room looking in.
But I didn’t want to be an outsider anymore.
So rather than blame life for not being fair, I looked deeper and recognized that my colleagues were intentionally connecting and communicating with industry leaders so that when the time came, their ideas would be heard. I realized that it takes more than talent and hard work to get ahead in life.
It takes the intentional cultivation of quality communication.
Once I learned and applied these key communication secrets, my career accelerated, my sales soared, and opportunities began continuously flowing to me.
Now, I’m a top performing sales manager and leader in the security industry author of the professional growth book, “Stop Clowning Around,” and am a highly sought after John Maxwell Team certified Public Speaker and Coach.
I’m proud of my success, and I’ve worked very hard toward achievement in my professional life, but I could not have gotten where I am without the core communication skills that allowed me to build strong relationships with the people around me. Because these skills have proven so invaluable to me, I decided to translate them into a 4-Step Model to guide aspiring business professionals from office doormat to inspiring, competent leader.
I don’t want you to struggle the way that I did. If I had only mastered these skills at a younger age, I would have saved myself years of anxiety, stress, and work without results.
