Personal Impact Course
This personal impact course is devoted to understanding how you impact on others.
Personal Impact training includes key elements of our communication, presentation, assertiveness and influencing programmes.
It's designed to bring these elements together to give you a real experience of the Impact you make and how to choose the Impact you want.
The emphasis is on creating insight, increasing confidence and raising self-esteem.
Personal Impact Course Contents
We tailor all our courses to reflect the needs of the delegates.
We will include many of the exercises listed below, and any additional material that the trainers feel is relevant.
Making an Impact
An in-depth look at what makes an impact and how people impact on one another.
Followed by a breakdown of the components that go into making an impact.
Style and Strengths
You'll give a short analysis of your personal style and what works for you, paying particular attention to how you think you impact on others.
You will get feedback from your colleagues on what else they think would work for you.
We will then look at what can prevent you from making the Impact you want?
This exercise specifically recreates the feelings that people have when they have to do something they find particularly difficult.
What happens to people when they are in an uncomfortable or new situation?
We then look at the ingrained behaviours associated with those feelings.
This section deals with personal space boundaries as well as internal issues that people would rather not talk about. It is particularly useful for people who have a hard (if not impossible) time saying no.
It's also helpful for people who find it difficult to set priorities because of other people's demands.
A look at the assumptions we make automatically and how they affect the way we behave.
As a tool for defusing polarised arguments.
60 Seconds of Passion
This is a chance for each participant to look at the power of expression and just how much they limit themselves in that expression.
60 Seconds of Silence
This exercise allows the participants to experience the dynamic of silence and to see how they react to it.
This is an awareness exercise to help deal with self-consciousness.
An exercise to stretch the capacity to communicate non-verbally.
A group exercise where each person gets to practise a variety of first impressions.
A group exercise looking at the words we use habitually and an exploration of how the choice of language can ensure a specific response.
This is followed by an individual exercise to demonstrate the effect of the deliberate use of emotive words.
Persuasion, Motivation and Inspiration
An individual exercise where you choose a work-related subject you feel strongly about and make a presentation about it.
Using the work of the day to consolidate your message with the aim of persuading, inspiring and motivating others.
Each person will identify:
- What they know they will use.
- What they are taking away from the course.
- Where they will practise.
We will give out Impact Factory documents to support the course.
You'll get copies relevant handouts to remind you of the coursework.
Two weeks after the course, one of your trainers will call to see how you are getting on.
You will have email and telephone access to both of your trainers.
