When we change the way we think, we change the way we act.

Most of us were never really taught how to think, so we have no idea how to harness our limited personal resources for best effect. In a fun, engaging and interactive session based on powerful recent developments in cognitive psychology, we will see how our minds actually function – and how we can use that understanding to become more successful immediately and achieve much more.

Our experience of working with other healthcare professionals has taught us that there are key development needs that recur time and again.

They are the need to negotiate effectively with – and influence – other people. These are eminently learnable skills, which depend fundamentally on enhancing our competence in interpersonal communication.

There are three reasons for this:

  1. The mechanism of communication is the means by which the other processes either work well, badly or not at all
  2. It is our experience of working with professionals and organisations over nearly 30 years that the process of interpersonal communications, with all its potential, is poorly understood and therefore badly managed
  3. Once individuals appreciate that they are responsible for the messages they transmit, and become more sensitive to the impact they are actually having on others, many of their other challenges become mitigated or even resolved.

The emphasis throughout will be on practical application and personal examples rather than theoretical frameworks. There will be a high level of engagement in group exercises and tasks – and participants can expect to have fun.
