Get it Right Conversations for Entrepreneurs
Get it Right Conversations for Entrepreneurs
As an entrepreneur you’re always on – with clients, suppliers, vendor partners, and employees. In a perfect world every conversation would be easy, but in reality some don’t work out the way we’d like them to. In this highly interactive workshop you will get strategies to get more out of your interactions with your key stakeholders. Using fun improvisational activities and group discussion, participants will learn the power of "yes and" and practice skills such as thinking on your feet, listening, articulating ideas, creativity, collaborating as a team...and much more.

On completion of the course, participants will:
  • Be more comfortable changing strategy in unscripted and difficult situations.
