Confidence under pressure - from £3500 plus vat

Do you need to Choose to let go of insecurities, and have the Courage to try something that makes you feel a little uncomfortable? Do you want the Confidence to go for new opportunities, speak up against the tide of opinion, think on your feet when challenged by others, and respond effectively to difficult people?Workshop-image3

Our 'Confidence under pressure' experience is a fun and challenging event where you will learn how to embrace feelings of insecurity, develop the confidence to feel uncomfortable and accept it whilst putting in a compelling performance. We will share the neuroscience (what’s going on in your brain & body) and how to use this knowledge alongside techniques to stay Calm under pressure and be Clear in the messages you aim to deliver and the impact you want to create.

This workshop will centre around identifying and practicing the skills of handling the media.

You’ll be given a series of scenarios based on your specific industry.  Make no mistake….you are the bad guys!. You’re alleged to have done something seriously wrong and must face a hostile TV journalist and camera crew. It can be a daunting experience.

But it’s important to do yourself and your company justice. How do you prepare? What tricks will the reporter have up their sleeve to trap you? How do you emerge with your reputation intact? All will be revealed.

These skills are very transferable for many other challenges in your leadership role. On the day we will explore how these skills can be transferred giving you increased confidence and much more value than traditional media training.

Delivered for leaders within an organisation or you can join one of our open workshops for £750 plus vat per person. Each workshop has 6 participants, and these are 'in person' sessions.

The super powered team experiencefrom £3500 plus vat

Does your team need to reflect on how effectively it is working? Could you be more Courageous and be more open and challenging with each other? Could you utilise each other’s strengths more effectively? Could you be more focussed on team goals and less on individual agendas? Could you Connect more effectively by identifying what is important to different people? Be Clearer on this? Be more Curious and Creative? Be more Compassionate with each other? Make more effective Choices? Our 'Super powered team experience' will help you do just this and at the same time you will produce an awesome output.

This team effectiveness experience uses the team goal of producing an employee video as the central experience for discovering how the team operates when under pressure to envision an outcome and deliver it, make decisions, and solve problems under the pressure of time. It is a real situation, you will produce a valuable resource and at the same time you will learn lots about yourselves, individually and collectively. The video can be on highly relevant topics such as Your purpose, vision, strategy, values, a major change, a new product, or service. It could be you telling your own inspiring stories to promote career progression. You choose and we help you with the technical aspects of the process. During the choosing, preparation and filming of your video you will be observed and after the video is produced, we will share these observations and help you reflect on what you have learned about yourselves and what insights and actions you want to take away.
