About the Course

As a manager or leader, the way we communicate and relate to other people has a profound impact on our lives, both inside and outside the workplace. Individuals who possess interpersonal finesse often excel: their relationships flourish, their views are sought, and their careers are usually on an upward trajectory.

This 5-day interactive training course provides the delegates with an opportunity to take a deep-dive into the world of Leadership, Communication and Interpersonal Skills. Learners will begin by laying a foundation of self-awareness - through positive self-inquiry and engaging with their conditioning and belief systems.

The Leadership, Communication & Interpersonal Skills training course guides the delegates through the psychology of Emotional Intelligence. It offers ample opportunities to develop interpersonal skills such as connecting with and ‘reading’ others, persuasion, motivation and influencing. A further element covered is navigating difficult interpersonal situations and learning strategies for dealing with conflict and disagreements. The delegates will be developing authenticity and leadership ‘presence’ and provide opportunities for developing the skills of speaking and presenting effectively to groups or large audiences. As a result of attending this training course, they can expect to sharpen their interpersonal effectiveness considerably and walk away with a rich arsenal of tools, techniques and insights that help them lead, communicate and relate to others on a whole different level.

Core Objectives

Delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Developing an understanding of self: Reading our unique behaviour
  • Drawing in others: How to connect with and be heard by other people
  • How to have powerful conversations as a leader
  • Techniques for navigating challenging interpersonal encounters

Training Approach

This training course is driven by a blended learning approach and draws on various adult learning techniques such as action learning, experiential exercises, group discussions, video case studies, role play and self-reflection activities.
