Really understand how you impact others and learn how to do so in the most effective and positive way. Two days where theory meets practice to challenge and inspire!
The emphasis of this workshop is on you and how you communicate. During the two days, ‘what you do’ will be examined and practised through a series of experiential learning activities. An open mind and an adventurous spirit are a necessity for everybody wishing to attend this exciting workshop - over 70% of the time is spent participating in challenging scenarios. You may well find yourself out of your comfort zone but you will leave the workshop with a personal action plan identifying the key changes to make and skills to practise to build your self-confidence and improve your communication techniques.
If you are a senior manager who communicates at all levels, and you want to improve the way you communicate, then this is the workshop for you. It will help you to increase your self-awareness and improve the impact and effectiveness of your communication in a most dynamic and thought-provoking way!
