Think on Your Feet® trains participants to analyse, organise and present ideas quickly using a series of mental structures, or plans. Participants see immediate improvement in their ability to:
- Organise ideas into simple formats quickly
- Get their point across clearly and concisely
- Lead people to see different perspectives on an issue
- Diffuse potentially confrontational situations
- Handle tough questions skilfully under pressure.
The Think on Your Feet® techniques are useful for large formal presentations, small group meetings, or 1:1 conversations with counterparts. The training prepares participants for those career-defining moments when people are evaluating you not only on what you have to say, but also on how you respond to their questions and challenges.
The programme design, with a strong emphasis on practising the plans and applying them in both everyday and work-related situations, guarantees a successful outcome. As a result, the programme invariably achieves high participant satisfaction ratings.
“We use the Think on Your Feet® workshop as one of our core basic skills-training programmes. We continue to use it because our internal customers feel it is practical, helpful, interesting, and fun. The skills taught are instantly applicable back in both the workplace and personally.”
People Development Manager, Major Asia-Pacific Holding Company
