Presentation Skills Training

People deliver presentations every day – in meetings, to other teams and departments, to clients. It is part of their job. Yet they have never been taught how to do it well. We know when someone is good at presenting because we know so many people who are not.

People seeing presentations have already seen some of the best presenters in the world – TED, SXSW, YouTube Channels, social media – and are measuring others by that standard. The technique of standing in front of the room and reading from a prepared script or slides isn’t going to work anymore (and never really did).

This Presentation Skills Training is designed to help your people and teams:

  • Develop confidence in presenting to each other and other stakeholders

  • Have a repeatable system for planning presentations with purpose

  • Be engaging, collaborative and create results

  • Inspire discussion and conversations that matter


Influence and Persuasion

Whether it is presenting to your team, the entire organisation, a client or other stakeholders, effectiveness is measured by whether you were able to have then think, feel or do something different than they were otherwise going to.

Many roles in organisations are responsible for mastering Influence and Persuasion skills – managers, supervisors, team, leaders, client facing roles and others. Influnce and Persuasion are an art. People need to be more psychologists than mechanics.

These workshops look at sets of scientifically proven techniques that:

  • Allow people to recognise what forms of influence and persuasion will be effective

  • Develop skills and capabilities in applying multiple influencing and persuasion techniques

  • Master the ability to lead conversations to a desired outcome

  • Negotiate the path to mutually beneficial agreements


Facilitation Skills Training

It is impossible to be part of an organisation today and not have to present or run a meeting at some time or another. Staff meetings, project meetings, planning and coordinating meetings—they all need a clear purpose and firm hand to be efficient and effective.

With its focus on asking rather than telling, and listening to build consensus, facilitation is the new leadership ideal, the core competency everybody needs. Managers and supervisors are often asked to facilitate rather than instruct, or to manage their meetings and training sessions in this manner. Facilitation skills do not come naturally, but they can be learned.

This Facilitation develops the ability to:

  • Distinguish facilitation from instruction and training

  • Identify the competencies linked to effective group facilitation

  • Explore the difference between content and process

  • Identify the four stages of meeting progress ways to help teams through each stage

  • Use common process tools to make meetings easier and more productive

Emotional Intelligence Training

People are more emotional than they are logical. If you are an expert in facts and less so in reading people’s emotions, you are unlikely to communicate effectively. It is time to match your EQ to your IQ.

This training, using the globally accredited “Genos Emotional Intelligence” assessment and reports, guides people through the process of recognising their own and other people’s emotional state when communicating, and adapting their communications to be effective.

It has been said that “IQ will get you a job, EQ will get you a promotion”.

This Emotional Intelligence Training develops the ability to:

  • Be aware of our own and others’ emotional state when communicating

  • Adapt our communications to the most appropriate and effective style

  • Balance information and emotions to create engagement

  • Develop resilience in ourselves and others

  • Inspire action in the desired direction


Train the Trainer

Training isn't just for trainers. Every day, training is becoming part of more job descriptions, for team leaders, supervisors and managers across the organisation.

Whether it's teaching a new employee what their role is, or training 100 employees on better time management skills, some basic learning principles apply. This course will help participants become the

type of trainer that effectively transfers knowledge, skills and ability. It supports participants in becoming good trainers and develop their skills in many areas, including being good communicators, who are genuine when they are working with others.

Participants of this course will learn to:

  • Develop the essential skills for a trainer

  • Master the foundations of adult learning

  • Develop a training session

  • Add fun and games to your program

  • Be familiar with multiple delivery methods

  • And much more!
