Knowing your fears can help you address them. Participants will complete a self-confidence assessment and then the group will discuss fears and solutions.
During this session, you will help participants identify their strengths and weaknesses through a personal exercise and a role-play.
After a large group case study, participants will work in small groups to discuss barriers to communication. Participants will also complete a short exercise to illustrate how these barriers apply to everyday life.
This session will examine questioning skills (including open questions, closed questions, and probing) through a lecture and a pairs exercise.
Participants will work on their listening skills by participating in two quizzes and a role play. We have also provided two lectures for the trainer.

To begin this session, the trainer will talk about the idea of body language in a lecture. Then, participants will complete a small group exercise and a large group exercise to explore the concept further.
Frame of Reference
This session will explore our frame of reference and the assumptions that we make through a lecture, large group exercise, and group discussion.
How we see ourselves has an impact on how we interact with others. Through lecture, case studies, and discussion, this session will investigate ways that participants can improve their self-image and thereby deal with difficult situations assertively and positively.
