How does this course compare to the group courses?
Each session is tailored to meet your needs and all our time is focused on discovering solutions that work for you. We work as a unit, so you are always actively involved in the sessions, whether speaking or listening. We cover the same subjects but can spend more time on each exercise than we would in a larger group; we are free to expand or move on from topics, as necessary.
How do the sessions work?
The tutors will come to your workplace or home – wherever your feel most comfortable – at a time convenient to you. Taking on different roles, one tutor will act as your conversational partner, while the other coaches you in exercises that explore posture, delivery and content. We will help you discover limiting beliefs about your communication, and then practise new habits to establish a more confident foundation. The dynamic we create gives you the chance to try out many different conversational techniques in a supportive, encouraging environment. We’ve got your back, all the way.
What does a typical session look like?
We begin with a check-in, discovering where you feel you need help speaking or listening, addressing any anxiety you may have. A typical session covers many practical topics, from preparing an important work presentation, to working through a delicate conversation with your relatives. We draw on our Dialogue resources to best assist you each session, giving you the tools and practise you need to work with, rather than against, the feelings that arise when you communicate. Every session will have a consistent shape, but the content will be specific to you every time.
