We’ll work with you to design something that will produce an effective outcome that you can use immediately. Here are some of of the things we’ve helped people with:
- Make presentations that wow people
- Win that pitch
- Leave a lasting impression on clients, prospects and investors
- Stay on top of your feelings when you’re negotiating
- How to listen empathically and actively, to turn information into intelligence
- Unblock the energy within your team
- How to sell an idea to a senior person
- How can I be more confident and assertive?
- How to walk the talk as a leader
- Managing your team – and the people above you!
- Shine in interviews
- How do I get this ‘emotional intelligence’ stuff?
- Conducting a performance review that’s constructive without pulling punches
- How to come across at your best in a media interview
- Speech training
– and in all of these, how to be more of you!
Here are some workshops we often run. These are great for individual personal development, for bonding teams and establishing a shared perspective around a given situation, or for helping to ensure that people perform at their best in business critical meetings. Workshops typically last half a day or a day.
Unlock the secret of personal impact, and discover the magic ingredient used by professional presenters and speakers. Understand better how you are seen by other people, and start to change how you look and sound so that you come over as natural, real and engaging wherever you go. Move from being an amateur communicator to a professional one.
This is a highly effective training programme in its own right; but it’s also a great platform for our Application Workshops.
Practise ‘getting it out of your mouth’ in a safe and supportive environment, using scenarios that simulate your own real-life communication situations.
Our powerful Transactional Analysis model will give you a new understanding of the forces at work in an interaction, and will help you steer presentations, conversations and negotiations to the most productive outcome possible.
We can co-design scenarios with you in advance, or else improvise on the spot in response to participant requirements.
These are introductory workshops that can present concepts like Emotional Intelligence in Action, Transactional Analysis or Performance Energy to larger groups. A typical workshop centres on an area or situation of immediate relevance to the organisation and often includes Forum Theatre – where role players work a scenario and use the audience to advise them how to improve the situation, so that the impact can be seen in action. Audience members can even elect to take the ‘hot seat’ themselves for a while to try the experience first-hand!
Off-sites and Away Days
Our workshops are great for off-sites that are really energising and full of practical learning. We’ve run sessions for up to 80 people in personal impact and active listening.
We work with several companies using role play as a method of training and evaluating their employees, as part of their assessment and development centres for example. These packages use customised scenarios to address workplace issues most relevant to you, with incisive and sensitive feedback from the role player, both verbal and written as required. Scenario based training sessions can be included.
All of these are intended only as an indication of the sort of thing we can do. We can design workshops for larger groups and different timeframes – we’d be happy to discuss any requirements you have. The Practice Room is a place of rich possibilities. So bring us your challenge and we’ll meet it if we possibly can.
