You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you

This two-day workshop helps you understand, not only how to recognise your own personal style – but that of other people too. Knowing what makes people tick helps you find ways to persuade rather than manipulate, to influence rather than coerce and to listen rather than talk.

Most people would say they were good listeners – but are you really? Is it more about what you think or what others think? How often do you dominate the conversation, accidentally push people the wrong way, or don’t get what you need because you are afraid to ask?

Using the excellent Strength Deployment Inventory® to explore how you communicate with others – and more importantly – how you can do so even more effectively than you used to is a great voyage of self-discovery, fun and practicality which will give you plenty of tools to choose from so that you get more of what you want, when you want, without treading on others’ toes!.

Objective: To be able to communicate, influence and persuade colleagues and clients in the most effective way possible
