How to be ‘included’ in a conversation

To be ‘included’, you have to be seen and you have to be heard. 

In this workshop, you will learn how to become a more effective communicator, so that you can be included in conversations about the things which matter to you and which will further your career – promotions, salaries, projects.

You will develop self-confidence and personal impact so that you can communicate with more clarity and relevance.

You will acquire the tools and the mind set to influence; to be more assertive.

You will learn techniques to get your voice heard, at the table and beyond.

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Recognise the fundamental building blocks of good communication and how to acquire them
  • Understand how to be more assertive and persuasive while remaining genuine
  • Learn how to use skilful communication to build relationships and to make an impression among peers and senior colleagues
  • Know how to make a valuable contribution to discussions
  • Acquire the confidence to speak up in meetings
  • Know how to eliminate the bad habits which are undermining your impact and your confidence
  • Be more in control.

This workshop is for you if you identify with any of the following:

  • You don’t think you have the impact on your audience that you desire/deserve
  • You feel people are not taking you seriously
  • You are not being included in important conversations
  • You often leave a situation wishing you had made a greater contribution
  • You have been told that your communication skills are letting you down.
  • Your lack of confidence/impact/skill is holding you back.
