The PCM Core Topics Seminar (3 days) (Face to Face or Virtual-Live)
Discover how to use your communications skills more effectively in business and personal relationships by attending this seminar. The PCM core topics seminar covers all the fundamentals of the Model. It is taught through didactic input, experiential exercises, group discussion and coaching on the application of the skills.
The PCM Workshops will show you how to apply the principles of PCM to your work environment and interact efficiently with a variety of people; it also applies to personal relationships. You will discover how to use the model to motivate yourself and others, recognise reactions to stress, predict distress behaviours and develop skills to manage and invite others out of distress. By the end of the seminar, you will be able to apply the PCM principles in all your relationships and develop several new skills.
