Interpersonal skills are especially relevant when working as leaders with young people and/or groups of
youngsters: communication becomes a crucial aspect in each stage of the activities and it clearly influences the
dynamics and motivation of the groups and individuals.
With the help of this 7-day training we would like to:
raise the employability of youngsters
to improve their personal development
to develop their cooperation and negotiation skills
and to urge them to be able to speak up and stand up for youth organisations; to improve their
lobbying techniques if they are in discussion with policy-makers.
Benefits of the course both at individual level and also from the perspective of your organisation:
by the end of the course you will be able to
create effective working relationships with people at all levels
choose and use the most productive approach and behaviour to get the results you want
get your message across in a way that gets heard, understood, accepted and acted upon
influence others to accept your proposals
solve problems in your working relationships
be skilled how to be assertive
be skilled how to listen
increase the feeling of self-efficacy – the belief an individual has that they can reach their goal.
