Programme components

Using Plain English, succinct language and methods to leave impact can improve the way we influence others. There are many times when delegates need to provide feedback for others, including leaders and managers. There are a range of ways to do this which can create influence, have impact and get great results.

The process of doing this begins with gathering information, identifying the key points, exploring the outcomes desired (if any) and focussing on the essential areas to present.

The workshop will introduce and explore some models for feeding back information, how to prepare and plan giving feedback, making it objective, focussed and specific and how to deliver it with confidence.
