How many people can participate in a training of quick-wittedness?
We recommend a maximum number of 12 employees, with an unlimited number of people who like to be present as so-called "silent observer". Our goal is to increase each employee's quick-wittedness on one day. Our rhetoric trainer gives in-depth feedback on each person's rhetorical challenges after each exercise. A training with only 3-6 participants is obviously much more intense. By the way, at the end of the successful training everybody receives a certificate of attendance.
Are there practical exercises included?
Yes! In our training of quick-wittedness, the trainer first explains the 30 most effective quick-witted techniques. Afterwards, each employee has the opportunity to complete 2 excercises on quick-wittedness and thus to practice those 30 techniques in realistic simulations of verbal attacks from professional life. These exercises are integrated in the schedule of the seminar and are about putting the learned techniques immediately into practice. If you would like to book a tailored training especially for your employees, then please take a look at our in-house training for employee development.
What is the relationship between theory and practice?
