It will also give them the knowledge and tools to help them develop, not just their own self-awareness but how to effectively support others to do the same.

One full day or two 1/2 days

Style of delivery

The training is very interactive with lots of scope for discussion and debate.  The day will include videos, practical demonstrations and group exercises to help the facilitator maximise the learning experience.

Course content

  • Self-awareness – The group will be asked to work in pairs to complete a feedback wheel for themselves and for the other person. They then spend time comparing the results with each other followed by a whole group discussion, sharing their thoughts about the exercise and any valuable learning outcomes.
  • A culture of awareness – This session will look at the value of developing a culture of awareness across the business. This will include a practical group exercise, working through a model to help guide the group through the main areas of consideration and potential challenge.
  • The art of giving and receiving feedback – During this session, the group will explore the role of feedback. A practical demonstration will highlight the value of feedback when successfully completing a challenge. The facilitator will share lots of experience about where and how we get feedback, as well as significant factors like the timing, frequency, manner and content etc.
  • The power of influence – In this session the group will consider who we influence in our day-to-day lives, how we do this (consciously and/or sub-consciously) and why we might want too. They will take part in an exercise and be given a tool to help them understand this better and to help guide them through the process when working to influence others.
  • Assertiveness – The group will discuss the difference between being assertive, aggressive and submissive. They will explore the need to be assertive and identify when each one might be appropriate. They will also get to consider the behaviours, language and actions associated with each.
