Effective communicationParticipants employ both verbal and non-verbal channels in a coordinated and authentic way. They become aware of, and are able to eliminate factors that make communication difficult, including thoughts and emotions. They actively observe and monitor the effectiveness of their own communications strategies.
I’d wholeheartedly recommend this training, it not only helped me professionally, but also in my private life. For example, I received some feedback from colleagues regarding how aggressive my communication becomes in stressful situations... I’m determined to use the strategies I learned in everyday life.

Better adaptability | Less resistance to changeParticipants handle changes with more ease, and are able to adjust to new circumstances and situations quickly. They recognize the importance of stepping out of one’s comfort zone, and they are able to identify the actual zones they are in.
Enhanced emotional intelligenceParticipants gain deeper self-awareness and receive feedback about how well they are able to express their emotions. They get a better understanding of their own motivators and learn to empathise even with colleagues they may have struggled with in the past.
The two-day training made me aware that I have to become more open and receptive. I enjoyed the training and I think everyone should take part in similar workshops. Tímea
More effective teamworkShared experiences lead to enhanced team cohesion. A platform to give and receive honest feedback and the mindful development of empathy results in improved cooperation. Our workshops help participants to get to know each other better, and may catalyse smooth transition into the phase of working. This is achieved by clarifying the roles and group norms.
It was an amazingly positive and open workshop, involving all participants. It was incredibly useful for the further development of our team. It was great fun, fast paced, stimulating and comprehensible. Thank you! Petra
ImpactTo make the intensive learning experience effective and focussed, we help you define your desired outcome at the start of our collaboration. At the end of the process we ask participants about the changes they started noticing in the organisation. Comparing the two allows us to see how the workshop contributed to you moving closer to your ideal state. Our clients have reported positive changes in these areas:
AssertivenessBeing assertive means being able to stand up for what you believe in while respecting other people’s feelings and opinions. It enables a person to express their needs, wishes, opinion, feelings and beliefs. A self-assertive person takes the rights of others into consideration, and prioritises relationships.
The ability to cope with stressParticipants gain awareness of stress factors that have negative influence on their lives. These include social, environmental, or intrapersonal stimuli. Participants become able to evaluate challenging situations that test their adaptability to a great extent, and consciously choose different coping strategies.
Effective conflict resolutionParticipants learn to recognize the reasons behind conflicts at the workplace, and develop a genuine need to resolve such conflicts. They familiarize themselves with and internalize the steps of conflict solution. They become able to approach colleagues with empathy, and assess the motivations and needs of others.
"I noticed that I have changed since I had taken part in the training, and I behave differently in disputes. Instead of immediate retort, my previous practice, I now try to understand my colleague’s thinking first. I noticed that it takes less time and stress to resolve conflicts. Kata
Enhanced motivationParticipants articulate their own basic set of values and become aware of their own motivators. This enables self-motivation. The elements of self-motivation are: diligence, optimism and a challenge defying attitude.
I’d like to thank you for the workshop at the Conference of Experiential Learning. I enjoyed the experience and especially the way how you, as a facilitator, motivate and inspire people. Zsolt
Shared responsibilityIn the workshops participants have the opportunity to define their role in achieving individual and company goals. They articulate what support they need from their team members
Raised awarenessParticipants receive both direct and indirect feedback and reflect on how relevant the feedback is. They identify areas where improvement is needed, and ask for support pro-actively. Following a task they specify what went well and what needs further attention, what needs to be done more effectively.
It’s been a long time since I had such a positive experience! I’ve learnt a lot about myself and I gained renewed self-confidence. I will try the strategies and I will definitely recommend this workshop to others. Klára
