It has been said that all business is a conversation, and that it is the ability of people at all levels in an organisation to create and maintain a rich conversation with each other and with other businesses that ultimately creates business success. That "conversation" relies on excellent communication skills. The best and most charismatic leaders are abundantly skilled communicators, able to coordinate and lead their teams because they create an environment in which others genuinely want to work.

Throughout the course, we use accelerated learning techniques to aid learning and foster recall. Our methodology incorporates forums, business games, small group activities, reflective periods, facilitated plenary discussions and presentations. The focus is very much on experiential learning - by engaging all their senses, delegates are able to learn more effectively. Everything the delegates learn will be based on proven principles and leading edge theories drawn from a range of disciplines, including psychology, management and leadership best practice, NLP, anthropology and linguistics. Many of the activities will allow delegates to share their real working experiences and thus learn from each other.
Delegates will develop enriched communication skills which they can use both in their working and personal lives. They will understand at a deep level the need for and practical skills of, the effective coordinator and charismatic leader.
Tradition has it that leadership comes from hierarchical position. In reality, leadership is more a reflection of mindset, and natural leaders will emerge at all levels of an organisation. Delegates returning from this course will have developed an understanding of the mindset of the effective leader and learnt practical techniques to develop their coordination and leadership skills back in the workplace. Effective leadership and coordination boosts workplace morale and spawns productivity. Whether or not the delegates are considered "leaders" within their organisational hierarchy, their ability to coordinate events, people and projects will have significant impact on the productivity both of the delegates and of their teams.
