Your Telepersonality

To the ears of others, we are what we speak.  A vital voice is therefore not a luxury, it is a necessity. This fact is highlighted over the telephone as the listener has only our voice to go by and no other visual clues.  Instant assumptions are made about us: assumptions about our intelligence, our background, class, our education and competence and, ultimately, our credibility.

Book this dynamic and lively workshop, in which we will discuss:

  • A professional vocal image – you are the voice of the organisation, greeting with a smile, vocal clarity, enthusiasm & energy
  • A professional visual image – dress and appearance, the reception area, meeting and greeting visitors
  • A professional verbal image – polite turns of phrase, courtesy, avoiding slang + ‘terms of endearment”, professional language
  • Telephone etiquette – some general do’s and don’ts
  • Managing difficult and demanding callers
  • 10 top phone rage triggers – the issues that move callers from frustration to rage

The session is highly interactive with lots of opportunity for experiential exercises, questions, and discussion.

Downloads of relevant video clips are used to enhance learning.

Target Audience

PA’s, Secretaries, Receptionists & Administrative Staff, Call Centre Agents

Workshop Duration

Flexible and may be between 1 – 4 hours

Your Personal Impact

How to Assert Yourself

The Guilt-free ‘No’

Global research shows conclusively that the success of individuals and companies depends twice as much upon emotional competence as it does upon intelligence or expertise.

The ability to communicate assertively and resolve conflict appropriately is an area of emotional competence that holds the key to a profitable and positive business atmosphere.

Women, in particular, struggle to sound assertive and to ask for what they need and want.

During this workshop, we will discuss:

  • The importance of a positive self-concept
  • Assertive versus passive and aggressive behaviour
  • How to sound assertive: vocal & verbal messages
  • What your body language says about you
  • The importance of boundaries
  • Practicing the guilt-free “no”
  • Asking for what you need and want
  • The influence of culture, upbringing and society on behviour
  • How to handle criticism

The session is highly interactive with lots of opportunity for experiential exercises, questions and discussion.
