In a multi-cultural world, these skills have never been more important. And it involves more than being able to standing up and give a talk or presentation, it’s about getting to the core of a person’s potential.
Lack of confidence is often cited as to why people don’t achieve what they want or aspire to. Most training – if available at all – only scratches the surface. Finding your focus, building on strengths and ‘lifting the lid’ on potential for growth is what drives lasting change. That is what we do, as we boost core communication skills, without which, almost any expertise is as useful as a chocolate teapot !
When individuals and organisations focus on building a stronger sense of personal identity especially in a multi-culturally diverse organisation, everything flows more easily. And we think that’s a conversation worth having.
