Training Communicating with Impact
Move with the Motions of an Aikido Warrior

Training for professionals with guts!

Do you want to communicate with more impact?

As professional, you know that your way of communicating has a huge influence on your results. What do you personally do when you meet resistance?
When the going gets tough, we often notice a tendency to lapse into ineffective or even counter-productive behaviour. What does yours look like? Interrupting the other person, repeating yourself over and over again or rather avoiding certain conversations and stopping to share your view? In short, are you more a fighter or do you tend to retreat?

Would you like to communicate for improved results to:

  • be better understood by your colleagues, customers, clients, manager?
  • give and receive feedback in a more effective way?
  • handle challenging conversations in a calmer and constructive way?
  • gain better insight in your own pitfalls in communication?
  • effectively build rapport with your discussion partner(s)?

Then this is your training opportunity!

More inner balance, more outer balance,
more results of your communication!

What will you get?

Let yourself be surprised by the insights you gain from the Japanese martial art Aikido, the art of achieving more with less resistance.

During 5 sessions of 2 hours each, you will experience and develop different and innovative professional communication patterns. Via simple physical exercises, based on Aikido, you will find out how a challenging situation impacts you on a mental, emotional and physical level. This experience will provide you with direct, memorable insights from which to learn:

You will…

  • experience how communication works from the inside out.
  • experience how your communication impacts the reactions of the other.
  • gain insight in your own resistance patterns.
  • experience what it feels like to communicate effectively and from your inner power.
  • bring your own work situations and practice with them.
  • share with the others in the group and learn from each other.

Do you recognise this? Successfully responding to and achieving change often fails due to habitual behaviours.
It is not necessarily unwillingness. Human nature and reality simply are obstinate.
Your potential to navigate change stands or falls with your ability to break through fixed patterns and habits and subsequently substituting them with new ones.
That requires courage!
My work will support you to grow and practice this courage.

Empower yourself, empower your team
