The famous phrase ‘One size does not fit all’ is as apt to leadership styles as it is to learning and development. As a leader and manager of a team, learn how to adjust your leadership style to fit the development level of your reports and colleagues. Situational leadership teaches you how to effectively adapt your style for maximum influence and results, depending upon the individual’s competence, experience, personality and context. Effective leadership varies, not only with the person or group that is being influenced, but it also depends on the task, job or function that needs to be accomplished. Learn how to harness your team’s spirit, energy and skills in support of the organization values and goals.
Impactful Public Speaking
Great content means little to nothing if it is not packaged and presented in an engaging way. As we apply breakthrough NLP techniques, you will discover how to design your talk stepping into your audience’s shoes. This would mean crafting your content with your audience in mind, using auditory skills to deliver the message effectively, leveraging your body language while assessing non verbal cues of the audience and designing compelling slides and visual aids for your most impactful talk ever. You will present a couple of times during the workshop and learn how to turn even the driest, most mundane information into an intriguing and dynamic presentation. We will work one-on-one using various tools to help reduce presentation fears and stresses. You will overcome negative thoughts and step into the most confident and authentic you, delivering your message with poise and power.
