Think On Your Feet® is a practical, intensive workshop on how to speak spontaneously with clarity and impact. The workshop gives you simple and step-by-step methods to train your mind in structured communication.
Getting your ideas across to others is critical to success in most roles. Sometimes we do this in a formal presentation but the great majority of communication is informal, without preparation or aids: over the phone; via email, in meetings or even after formal presentations.
This course, attended by over 100,000 professionals worldwide, teaches the ‘capsules of persuasion’ concept and ways to structure your ideas on the spot. Using this concept, you can speak spontaneously and coherently and cope with challenging questions wherever and whenever you need to Think On Your Feet®.
