The Human Condition

Transform the way your people relate to each other


Course summary

Achieve better outcomes through improved group dynamics

It’s always nice to be heard - but sometimes it’s more rewarding to listen… We all like to express an opinion and think we have that elusive personal quality - good judgement. Over the years, this combination has fired some pretty heated debates. But what if, in order to succeed, we had to compromise our own opinions; to what extent are we willing to sacrifice what we hold dear? The Human Condition will put that conflict to the test: our desire to influence against our reluctance to change.

This short, high-impact programme challenges each participant to question their own preconceptions and forces them to give and take a little on their views in order to succeed. Each programme presents observations about how we relate to each other and the methods used to achieve our aims. Delivering memorable insights into belief systems, levels of flexibility, social interaction and group consensus.

 Each tailored session can be used to support the following core skills

Collaboration | Results Orientation | Communication | Listening Skills | Positive Decisions | Providing Direction | Change Management | Influence
