How much of this training can be done online?
In these unprecidented times during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide pandemic when it is more important than ever to be able to manage teams remotely, and address difficult issues while talking over the phone or video conferencing, people are likely to be under greater stress. Under these circumstances you may need a little extra support yourself.
For more than 40 years we have offered a highly acclaimed communication skills training course for managers and professionals called "Skills with People". It usually consists of a series of one-to-one coaching sessions which bookend an intensive 3-day training session in a small group, using a video camera so that participants can rehearse how they handle some of the most challenging conversations they encouter at work.
Even though it is not possible to safely meet, and for groups to get together to rehearse and practice skills there is no reason people can't still learn new skills and develop with e-learning, video conferencing or telephone coaching sessions.
Who is this coaching for?
What skills will this coaching teach?
What will these skills enable you to do more successfully?
Couldn't you just read a how-to-do-it book?
What gets in the way of using these skills are old habits of thinking and speaking. That’s why a crucial part of this coaching is the spotting and unlearning of counter-productive old habits. That’s why, in these coaching sessions, you are helped to practise dealing with the kinds of situation you find challenging, again and again, until you are confident you can do it successfully.
We developed our approach to People Skills over 40 years ago. It has been acclaimed many times a “highspot” in the field of UK management communications training. It has been of benefit to thousands of managers and professionals in many countries.
Obviously training funds vary. We are used to tailoring the training to fit a range of budgets. If you are interested in the training, but the cost of the full 6-month training programme is out of the question at the moment don't be put off getting in touch - you could still benefit.
