This two-hour session has been developed for officers and elected members who want to develop their knowledge and understanding of communication. Built around the Parent – Adult – Child model, this is a useful programme for those who manage tricky conversations with colleagues and members of the public.
By the end of the session, delegates will be able to:
- Explain the principles of Transactional Analysis
- Identify Parent – Adult – Child behaviours
- Use straight transactions to build rapport and maintain position
- Identify crossed and hidden transactions.
This is a very practical programme which will teach delegates new strategies for approaching communications.
Delegates will be asked to complete a communication style questionnaire during the session.
