The programme comprises of four modules:
Module One: Confident Communication
The initial module examines the impact of communication on our professional image and introduces a range of tools and techniques to help delegates feel more confident and in control when faced with potentially difficult conversations at work. Different communication styles are highlighted, as well as the impact these differences can have on both our daily interactions and the outcomes we achieve. The workshop also explores unconscious bias, so that participants broaden their understanding of the dynamics of diverse groups and communicate with greater rapport.
- develop an understanding of the impact that unconscious bias can have on our behaviour and decision making;
- learn advanced communication techniques to build better rapport;
- know how to use verbal and body language to increase presence and confidence;
- leave the session with new knowledge and techniques for achieving more productive and positive internal and external relationships.
Module Two: Authentic You
This module explores the importance of image, visibility and effective networking on career progression. Participants will gain the skills and confidence to showcase the talent, knowledge and achievements they have to offer their organisation, thereby giving their employers access to the widest possible talent pool.
- use NLP techniques to develop techniques to improve self-image and positive behaviours;
- understand and gain feedback on the image presented at work;
