People Pains – Ash’s Story

Working with Challenging People

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

Businesses around the world have discovered a simple truth; how their employees engage and build relationships, with both internal and external customers, defines careers. It’s no longer sufficient to be valued as an expert, technical specialist and advocate; the way you communicate and connect to your stakeholders is equally valued as a competency.

This poses a development challenge to those who have yet to acquire interpersonal awareness, confidence and skills.

How did Corporate Drama help Ashraf develop relationship awareness and confidence?

Our dramatically different approach helps technical experts develop their own authentic communication confidence. We help people build on their behavioural strengths whilst developing their personal impact.

“If you don’t understand people, you don’t understand business.” We explore what makes a successful trust-based relationship and the key to successfully influencing and negotiating with different people. Listening, questioning and how best to present your ideas and solutions. How to avoid potential conflict and remain assertive, even in challenging conversations. Creating an authentic, confident communication style, which represents your brand and values.

Then we let you practice your newfound awareness to build new levels of confidence.

Our practice involves real-life scenarios, practiced using professional business role-player actors. The first-person feedback helps specialists, like Ash, to use their learning directly back in the workplace.

All the Corporate Drama team – our facilitators, coaches and business role-players have all walked the walk, working in the real world of business with all of its politics, pressures and relationship challenges.

Our clients gave us this great feedback

We have worked with Corporate Drama on many development projects and consistently receive amazing feedback from all our programme participants. The actors bring such energy to their role-playing and are fast thinking, adaptive and responsive. Their professionalism and expertise have left the participants gob-smacked about how they bring such diverse ‘others’ into the room and make the learning experience real and powerful.
