Hi, I'm Erin, a former college teacher who helps individuals and teams learn at work.

I bring education to you or your team through customized training programs, workshops, and coaching sessions about workplace communication and culture.


My sessions and classes are interactive and engaging, focusing on both conceptual discussions and practical applications that respect your desire for intellectual growth while also providing relevant strategies you can immediately apply in your writing or speaking.

What Can I Do For You?

I help your team communicate and work together to help you:

Boost Employee Engagement

Craft your team emails and facilitate your team discussions with purpose and respect to keep morale high.

Manage Messaging to External Stakeholders

Be purposeful about the messages your writing and communication convey to partners and collaborators.

Collaborate Across Generations and Cultures

Communicate respectfully and inclusively with generations or cultures you know less about than your own.

Save Time and Money

Clarify your call to action and leave no room for misinterpretation by writing clearly, concisely, and with logical flow and ordering.

Streamline Internal Processes

Prevent double-work and reduce the need for clarifying phone calls and emails by creating efficient communication workflow patterns.

Reduce Bias and Subjectivity

Prevent harmful bias or subjectivity from seeping into your team's writing and communication, to ensure all team members are respected.

Erin is an international educator who's been fortunate to serve organizations like:


Help your team communicate with clarity, purpose, and confidence.

Engaging and Informative

Erin worked with me to create an outstanding curriculum, and registration filled up so quickly we had to schedule a second one just to keep up with demand. 


She created a workshop that was engaging and informative for all attendees and the feedback from participants has been outstanding.

Fun and Impactful

I’m pleased to give Erin Lebacqz my highest recommendation.  Erin has waitlists in every class. 

She unfailingly receives the highest ratings from participant feedback. 


In short, Erin makes writing classes fun, easy to understand, and impactful, not to mention our team members love her!

Practical and Effective

I am so glad I was introduced to Erin! She listened to my goals and concerns, and provided a session filled with tools my team can use in our daily activities.


Everyone who attended the training walked away feeling better equipped and ready to write. Time and money well spent!
