A great course for anyone...who wants to know how to handle meetings better.

 

Purpose:

 

Have you ever been to a meeting that spent more time off track than on? Everyone wanting to have their say and no one listening? Or perhaps only some people have done their homework, or others with something valuable to say won't speak up?

Meetings are a fact of business life, and like it or not, you have to be in them to get ahead and get things done. This course is designed to develop and foster good communications in meetings. In this course you will learn what it takes to communicate your ideas clearly with all the meeting members and develop meaningful lines of contact. You will discover how the way you behave now may be helping or hindering the process of communication. We will take a good look at body language and how it is used to build rapport and good relationships, as well as listen to your voice and improve how you use it to communicate your ideas. Understanding how to get your message across to groups of people, as well as in smaller meetings and one-on-one personal interviews and telephone conversations, will be covered in depth.

CONSULTING SKILLS INTENSIVE-(CCI) - 3 DAY COURSE 

 

Course Objectives

 

Consultants can consult in different ways. Some operate as experts in a particular field. They do studies for their clients, write reports for them and then make recommendations to them.
While this is a model that is very effective in certain situations, we will be pursuing an approach that is more akin to coaching or facilitation.
This orientation involves working with clients to help them produce outcomes. It requires a set of skills and expertise that is rather different. So you will learn how to facilitate and practice coaching behaviours and work with your clients.

Think and Learn 


Within the context of the coaching style of consulting you will improve your capabilities to:

· Facilitate
· Conduct research

· Work in and with teams
· Interview

· Manage projects
· Analyse information

· Manage relationships
· Present

· Design research
· Make things happen


Work on some real case studies


Four case studies will be used through the course to make the material directly relevant to your organisation’s current issues. These case studies will help focus the application of the skills and techniques. This also means that the course can kick start some real business improvements immediately after the course.

 

Course Approach

The course will weave together several themes as it proceeds:

 

1. What type of Consultant are you?

Exercises on the first day aim to confront you with what it means to be a consultant. We will explore the different approaches that consultants can take and the benefits they can deliver.

 

For the rest of the course we will then be learning and practising a coaching or facilitative style of consulting. You will have the opportunity to think about, experience and practice this coaching style throughout the exercises and case studies used.

 

2. Specific Skill and Technique Development

On each day there will be modules on particular consulting skills and techniques. Generally the sequence follows a typical consulting engagement life cycle.
On the second day the focus will be on facilitation, on understanding the clients issues and their objectives and on research design.


On the third day the emphasis will shift to data gathering and analysis, to the management of client relationships and situations and interviewing.
On the fourth day the focus will be on presentation of your plans and ideas. This will enable you to integrate what you have learned but also demonstrate it to executives.

 

3. Application through Case Studies

You will work in a team on one of four case studies. These case studies will give you the opportunity to apply the techniques and skills to situations of real benefit to your organisation.

They will also provide a focus for the integration and application of the techniques and skills you will learn.

You will follow your case study through a large part of the life cycle of a consulting engagement.
