Abigail Van Buren, the writer of Dear Abby, once said, “There are two kinds of people: those who come into a room with the attitude, ‘Here I am!’ and those who have the attitude, ‘There you are!’”
This course is a two-day exploration about the type of impact we want to have in life and work. Participants will consider and define the influence that they can have on their life and work. They will also learn skills for success and how to create those circumstances.
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know other participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Participants will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Importance of a Personal Brand
First, we will define what a brand is and what its elements are. We will also explore how to define the wow factor and what success means.
Your Brand Approach To Others
Next, participants will complete an assessment to help them define their brand style.
Looking at the Outside
First impressions can have a big impact on a brand. In this session, participants will learn how to dress for success, show proper etiquette, and monitor their voice.
Looking at the Inside
This session will help participants develop skill at concentrating, getting work done, and building their confidence.
If participants really don’t know what they want, it’s hard to represent their brand and have the desired impact. In this session, participants will use the SPIRIT and GROWTH frameworks to set some brand-related goals. Techniques for developing flexibility and resiliency will also be discussed.

This session will give participants some ways to use networking to build their brand.
Good communication skills are another important part of personal impact. This session will explore speaker and listener biases, active listening skills, and difficult communication situations.

This session will share persuasion, negotiation, and negation techniques to help participants have real impact.
Dealing with Challenging People

Presentations and Meetings
In this session, participants will learn how to make the most of public speaking and meetings.
At the end of the course, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.

We’re keen to ensure that all the participants get the most out of the day, so ideally, we would love to have a room that has natural daylight, space to move, sit and write / work in small groups and utilise the wall space.
It helps to have the equipment provided but we can provide screen, projectors, flip charts and sound etc.
The “in-house” price includes training materials for all participants and a brilliant trainer… come coach… come facilitator.
The price excludes facilitator travel / accommodation (if required) and VAT.
Quite simply, we take all the hassle, stress and time required to organise your course off-site.
We will provide;
We think this is great value and ideal for companies who do not have the resource or time to organise the training.
Please see “Terms” for specific details on our all-inclusive offer.
Full Course Terms and Conditions are available upon request and are provided during the booking process.
