Influence Workshops 2019 - Spring Offer
Spring workshops OFFER - £850 +VAT on selected dates only - This has been a popular offer and so we are extending it into April - with the offer of two further dates.
Organise a workshop for a group of colleagues or coaching sessions for yourself at discount rates this Spring.
We are offering 3-4 hour workshops in your offices on the topics below at substantially discounted rates on selected dates only. Or two to four coaching sessions for individuals (March - and now April) starting at £425 +VAT.
WORKSHOP 1:Handle Challenging Conversations
Would you like to hold more productive and positive conversations when challenging situations arise?
In this session we share specific tools to help avoid common pitfalls, reduce the emotional ‘charge’ and develop some questions that take both you and your conversational counterpart to some more useful places.
How to stay onside while handling difficult moments or issues
Learn specific language skills to empathise, clarify and dovetail needs
Manage your emotions and set the tone and mood of the conversation
We work on current issues and challenges that the group brings to the table and also share valuable tips and strategies modelled from some of the world's top communicators in business and leadership roles.
A group or team of 6 -10 is ideal to provide a practice group and a dynamic exchange of ideas. This session will provide insights, practices and feedback for up to ten people. Alternatively, this can form the topic for a series of personalised coaching sessions for one individual.
Sessions are available, at a time of your choosing, for 3- 4 hours during office hours and for up to ten people, at £850 + VAT on selected dates in March and April.
WORKSHOP 2:Present with Storytelling - the Natural Way
Do you need to present, pitch your ideas or speak to groups as part of your work? If so, learn to present with story-based techniques - the natural way – as if in conversation with your audience.
When we present – or speak to a group – the most important factors are:
Having something real to say
Building a connection by truly thinking about the group and their needs
Showing why you have a right to ‘lead’ on this and why they should care about the subject - or your approach
For most of us though, presenting isn’t something we relish - nerves and other self-imposed expectations often sabotage success or reduce our impact. This is often because we don’t know how to find the three vital ingredients above. Having them in place allows words to flow naturally ‘in the moment’, aligns our body language and makes us more credible.
In this short workshop, we show you how to take some of the challenges out of presenting and put ‘natural’ back in – so you can engage with your audience and present effectively. We will build your confidence and skills by moving from an easy conversational starting point to some mental strategies and story-based techniques that act as a presentation support structure for you.
We share valuable tips and strategies modelled from some of the world's top communicators in business, media, political and leadership roles. And we have successfully applied this to help pitch teams of all stages and ages!
For many of our clients, these sessions have opened the door to a different kind of presenting. We don’t promise an instant success, but we do believe this will set you on the road to easier, more enjoyable presenting.
This session will provide techniques, practices and feedback for up to six people. Alternatively, it can be set up as a more personalised coaching session for one or two people.
Sessions are available, at a time of your choosing for 4 hours during office hours and for up to six people, at £850 + VAT on selected dates in March and April as shown below.
WORKSHOP 3:Understand and Shape your Personal Impact
We live in a connected world where our personal impact and reputation matter more than ever before. It is no longer enough just to do a good job – you need to know your strengths and for others to know them too. In order to find the most success, you must take conscious control of the messages you project - creating a consistent impact that others find easy to talk about.
And yet we rarely receive quality feedback that energises us or enables us to develop further. In this workshop, we help you gain insights into your current personal impact and identify some first steps to increase your personal effectiveness and ability to connect - as well as deepening your understanding of others in the team.
There will be a number of activities and a planning tool to get clearer on your strengths - as others see them - and to make developing your personal brand fun.
Gain insights into your own personal impact
Experience ‘fast-feedback’ and construct your own personal strengths statement
Develop some first steps in communicating and cultivating your personal (and team) effectiveness.
This is a short workshop where a team of 6 -10 is ideal to provide a positive environment and a dynamic exchange of ideas. This session will provide insights, practices and feedback for up to ten people.
Sessions are available, at a time of your choosing for 3-4 hours during office hours and for up to ten people, at £850 + VAT on selected dates in March and April.
Alternatively, we can work on personal impact on an individual basis in 2 to 4 coaching sessions.
Influencing and persuading is something we all do every day. Most of us want to become better at it so we can develop stronger relationships in which our expertise is invited and valued.
This workshop explores the language and psychology of persuasion - particularly how to use language to guide and focus thought. It combines theory, practice and insights from cognitive psychology.
It will help you:
Become more aware of the approaches, language patterns and beliefs most likely to succeed in ‘influence situations’
Build the trust necessary to co-create in business partnering situations
Learn where to focus your own and other people’s attention for more successful results
Overall you and your team will learn:
Powerful language skills for clarifying, challenging and inspiring others
How to steer energy away from problems and onto outcomes and solutions
How to prepare yourself to be at your most influential
The best practices of top leaders - exploring other people's needs at deeper levels to make real progress
Comments from previous participants included:
‘An excellent day… found all of it really useful – some real ‘penny-dropping’ moments.’
‘This has already changed my use of language and broadened my approach to running meetings and call – very useful.’
‘Really enjoyable and thought-provoking. Will apply those language patterns and frameworks right away.’
This is a short workshop where a team of 6 -10 is ideal to provide a practise group and a dynamic exchange of ideas. This session will provide insights, practices and feedback for up to ten people.
