Seminars with John Sturrock

Core Skills Club:  Taking the Podcast Learning Online

 

John Sturrock has recently been releasing podcasts on a regular basis. These provide practical tips and techniques for mediators, negotiators, communicators, managers and leaders – indeed for all of us.

The podcasts have been well received and John has incorporated them into online training sessions. Participants are given the opportunity to practice the techniques with others and to receive light touch coaching as they do so. The sessions are productive, collegial and fun.

 

"Getting an opportunity to actually test out the tools and to observe others testing them in different scenarios was invaluable."

"Hearing John's views on how the different tools and strategies can be used in practice was great."

"When I started the seminar, I was hoping to develop my skills in terms of mediation, but I came out of it realising that many of the skills can be used in my day-to-day work too."

"The main thing I found to be useful was the practical experience gained - both in terms of  (1) the opportunity to put the tools I'd learned about into practice and (2) the expert tips and practical guidance from John."

 

We are now offering these on a wider basis in a series of 90 minute online events, using Zoom as a platform, to be enjoyed as a one off or as a collection. And it is all high-quality interactive CPD.

As a follow up for those who wish individual guidance or to discuss specific issues in private, John is also offering one-hour one to one coaching sessions.

 

The topics include:

  • Dealing with disagreement and different views
  • Asking really good questions to understand what is really going on
  • Giving effective feedback to colleagues and others
  • Listening with real interest
  • Preparing strategically for difficult meetings
  • Applying neuroscience and cognitive bias in practice in negotiation, mediation and elsewhere

To optimise the learning opportunities, there are 12 spaces available at each seminar.
