Learning Outcomes

Training on how to use The Contextual Influencing Model takes 3 hours. After this we focus on case study practice, skills practice and individual coaching. This makes it a very flexible training which can be easily customised to your needs.

Case studies can be customised to your needs. This is especially useful for teams facing the same challenge together.

Skills practice can be customised to your needs by focusing on specific skill sets that are most relevant to your needs. For example, we could focus more on listening skills, questioning skills, intercultural communication, building rapport, presentation skills, or even combine with The Story Habit training.

Generally, a Contextual Influencing Skills program including case study practice, skills practice and individual coaching would last 2 days in a face to face training, or be split into 4 x 2-3 hour virtual workshops spread over several weeks with assignments in between.
