About the Workshop

Session 1: Introducing Linguistic Profiling

Based upon core techniques of reflection and consciousness-raising, the LiPP team will enable you to assess and evaluate the communication strategies that you use on a day-to-day basis. Communication at work is often fraught with pitfalls, which can make it a difficult task. The workshop will introduce a series of effective strategies that can be used to pinpoint potential conflict quickly and effectively.

Session 2: Linguistic Toolkits: Rapport, Relationships and Building Connectivity

This session presents a set of practically useful linguistic toolkits to enable you to identify the communicative styles you use to establish relationships, create teams and develop working relationships. This includes practical steps to consider and evaluate the communication culture of teams or departments and to assess what happens when these do not align with other departments.

Session 3: Resolving Miscommunication and Conflict Resolution (with professional actors)

With a focus on identifying and resolving miscommunication and conflict, this session incorporates actors performing real-life examples of dealing with miscommunication and conflict, to actively demonstrate how your strategies cane help.

Session 4: Communication Culture, Relationships and Connectivity

This session examines how different communications cultures exist within large, complex organisations. We will focus specifically on how this affects the different and flexible ways in which relationships need to be established and explores the use of different communicative methods across a range of stakeholders.

Session 5: Digital communication and leading through social media

The final session focuses upon the advantages of using digital communication, especially social media, strategically to enhance connectivity through team building and relationship management online. You will be taught troubleshooting strategies for situations where social media can go wrong, as well as strategies that can be implemented to get social media working successfully.

By the end of the session, you will have gained the following skills:

  • The ability to reflect upon and critically evaluate your own communication styles in order to clearly identify core skills and behavioural competencies
  • The ability to identify and implement the key communication styles and strategies that will enhance interactions with your teams/departments
