Cultural Negotiation

The 3 step LAB process which reduces stress in difficult conversations

As a human you are constantly improvising- it serves us well to learn how to do it more efficiently. Change in Toastmasters- and in life- is inevitable, so learning this small communication trick can make a huge differences in how well you adapt to stress when that ´change´ smashes you in your unprepared face.

“You can look into the skill of resilience, adaptability and agility in leadership literature. Ask me about how improvisation is done in 50% of the MBA programs in Holland. How the Harvard Business Review claimed that adaptability Intelligence is an indispensable skill for the future of work. Read this about the value of improvisation skills. I love spreading the message of improvisation and a positive mental attitude. I can do it in 15 minutes. It´s a concept of saying ¨Yes and¨ instead of ¨Yes, but¨ and can be demonstrated in 6 minutes with room for practicing it with experiential whole body exercises where they really feel the change in attitude. “

Audience TARGET: Any participant who has relationships. Ideal for officers who work with teams and need to be adaptable to people’s opinions. People who want to excel in Table Topics and want a trick.
