@CE (Ace) Communicator

If you’re looking to bring your relationships to a higher level; to be able to understand how they got broken (or never really worked so well to begin with) and how simple changes you make can have a profound effect for positive change so that you can finally have a relationship that works well consistently and brings you joy, you’re in the right place.

What a pleasure it is to meet you!

I help you master the fine art of communication on the job, at home, and in your community without the fear of confrontation.

You’re in the right place if:

  • You think you’re a terrible writer and have no idea what to do with a blank page (even a simple e-mail sends shivers down your spine)
  • You are sick and tired of working on ineffective, unproductive teams who spend more time vying for control than getting things done and you can’t seem to break through to anyone.
  • You are trying to develop better relationships with your customers in order to turn them into long-term, loyal clients who rave about you to their contacts but have no idea where to start. You’ve tried loyalty cards and other gimmicks with poor results to show for it. 
  • You have a contentious relationship in your life (or one that you just know could be so much better) and you don’t know where to start in order to improve it. 
  • You want to learn English or improve your ability to communicate clearly in English.

That’s why I started @CathleenElise; to help you master the fine art of communication; to finally have relationships that work well without all the stress and strain, and to help you increase your success of communicating clearly by giving you more language tools to work with. 

The thing about communication is that there are so many moving parts

that it's hard to keep anything straight or know where to start.

  • If you’re ready to finally get a handle on this, if you’re ready to stop struggling with your relationships and finally get somewhere, I’ve got just the thing for you.
  • As we move forward together on this journey,  we’ll walk through the mysterious world of human communication, looking at it from all sides; digging deep to uncover what makes us tick (why we do what we do) as well as how to make the changes needed to improve how we communicate with those around us.
  • Many of the changes are simple with near-instant results while others might take more effort and need more time to blossom, but all of them are worth the effort.
  • So, when you sign up, I’ll hold your hand through the process. The blog, podcast, and, @CEs Magazine are all packed with information, tips, and plenty of opportunities to practice what you’ve learned in order to change your relationships for the better from day one. 

Making Connections

I thought it would be advantageous to look at the act of making connections from the opposite angle – that of someone who is confident and outgoing; of someone who does not struggle with reaching out to someone new.
So, What Does It Mean to Be Outgoing?
Many people confuse being outgoing with being extroverted (likewise with being shy and being introverted), so let’s clear that up now.

In our scramble to make ends meet and try to make a better physical life for ourselves and those we love, it is easy to take that personal side of our lives for granted, to assume that it will take care of itself and be there when we are ready to focus on it. Here is where we need
