The Knesix Method™

The complete suite of people skills you need to nurture your most important leadership asset:

Trust.

Employee Turnover could be silently bleeding your bottom line.

The hidden costs of employee turnover are often overlooked - including the hard blow to your stress levels.

On one hand, finding a replacement could cost your company up to 150% of that employee's annual salary, according to Gallup: 

On the other, you'll need to handle the hit on productivity, morale and the several months it takes for the new hire to reach maximum output.

Wouldn’t it be better to prevent this from happening?

The secret to everlasting employee loyalty is trust.

Trust is what makes people follow leaders.

But to feel deeply involved in your company's mission, employees must feel that they're led by someone really involved in their personal and unique success.

That's the main focus of the Knesix Method™: developing your People Skills of Active Listening, Storytelling, and Captivating with your message.

We train leaders to connect with employees and their emotions, reducing turnover.

The good news is: You can do all this through normal day-to-day interactions; no special or additional interviews or meetings are necessary.

This is our mission.

The Knesix Method™ includes all skills you need to...

- Know which are the exact face areas to look at in order to decipher emotional states during a conversation.

- Apply the three critical Storytelling factors that transform a story into a persuasive narrative.

- Learn to detect the exact moment when they open themselves to you with just three body language key tells.

​- Develop your own strategy when mirroring words, body posture and attitude so they 'feel' you are totally in sync with their feelings (even if they are meeting you for the first time).

- Discover what really moves them with a formula to ask the right questions at the right moment.

- Steer the flow of any conversation towards the goals and actions you've set.

- Assemble a complete argument toolbox that will boost your persuasive charisma.

The three pillars of our program:

1 - Active Listening

It's not enough to pay attention to people when talking; We use many channels to convey our message, so it's critical to understand body language, the words chosen, voice tone and volume and the subtle emotional expressions of the face.

It's well known that we use our whole body to communicate, so it's safe to assume that people really feel that we are paying attention to them when what we say is congruent with all their signals.

Also, when we 'catch' a feeling of distress, it's important to have subtle questioning skills to let them open themselves.

For all this to happen, we need to build rapport and empathy first.

You'll develop the skills to decipher body language signals in a conversation.

2 - Persuade and Inspire

Once we have the full emotional picture of each one of our employees, we can tell what moves them; Each person is moved and motivated by their own goals, so a Mentor must address each one of them personally.

When you pinpoint what is the emotional driver for a person - For example: family time, professional development or financial security - you can choose the right narrative to inspire them.

Inspiration doesn't have to be something ethereal; in fact, it's going to be the bridge between the employee's goals, emotional triggers, and the company's mission. And the easiest way to wrap this message is with storytelling.

The Knesix Method™ builds and assists your Storytelling skills.

3 - Convey the message with impact

The third factor is being able to influence your employees with the right attitude: attuned to their emotions, their goals and letting they find out that you've been really listening to them, and want them to unleash their full potential towards their own goals, the team's goals and the company's.

You imprint this idea in their hearts: that all three goals are aligned.

And they're going to listen, because they trust you.
