Course description

Thinking on the Spot - 1-Day Personal Development Workshop in Central London

People think every day of their lives, but what they often overlook is that thinking is a skill like any other and, as such, can always be improved.

This Thinking on the Spot course is a hands-on, one-day workshop wherein participants will acquire skills of how to gather and articulate their thoughts concisely, clearly and convincingly. A wide range of techniques will be explored and rehearsed to help attendees make the most of their mind and thinking processes, so that they can eventually truly think on-the-spot.

Participants will gain insights into what actually goes on inside their minds that eventually influences their ability to respond, and learn new techniques to make that process work for their benefit.

By participating in this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Structure their thoughts quickly even ‘on the spot’
  • Become better articulators
  • Be authentic in their responses to enhance engagement

This course can also be offered in the in-house/company specific format. Contact the provider for more information.
