This training is suitable for individuals and groups who want to improve their skills in one or more communication domains. We can talk and read a lot about communication, but I have found that you learn most by actually doing it.
In this training, you will role-play using both general situations and situations based on the examples you provide. In a safe learning environment, you will work with a training actor and trainer to improve your conversation techniques.
The majority of people who choose to do this feel a bit anxious about practicing it. Fortunately, this anxiety quickly disappears in most people and they really appreciate the benefits of this method. The benefits of practicing are:
- You will notice what works and what does not.
- You will often gain different insights by experiencing it rather than talking about it.
- You will have already done it once, which will make it easier to do in the future.
You will push your limits in a safe learning environment; something you might not have dared to do in real-life situations.
