HOW TO HUMAN
“For me personally, this was one of the best practical training courses I’ve ever been on. It really pulled me out of my comfort zone and pointed out the weaknesses I need to deal with. It opened my eyes and really got me thinking.”
“An eye-opening training course, in the direct sense of the word.”
“The theory bit was good, but the practical part was even better. It was real practice – the person I was paired with had no idea what my intentions were. The sense of accomplishment and the buzz I got from it made me realise that I’ll be able to handle myself in any situation, but more than that, I’ll know when other people are trying to use certain techniques on me as well.”
Hands-on communication training
Communication skills and the ability to read people are something we need in all walks of life. Good, informed communication achieves more than a loaded gun. Communication is a skill, like any other, that can be learned and improved. This course is based on the common practices from the fields of intelligence and (military) security.
The goal is for the participant to become a more conscious communicator and effective negotiator. This very practical day will provide the ability to covertly shape conversations towards your objectives and identify the intentions of your conversational partner, among other skills.
The course will provide participants with both knowledge and confidence for performing in difficult situations. We will provide an opportunity to step out of the comfort zone and put your skills to the test.
The course is divided into three parts:
The first part will take place before the start of the contact learning and consists of students completing a profiling questionnaire at a time that suits them. The results will be analyzed in the second phase of the course.
The second part (8h) takes the form of contact training, during which theory is acquired and situational exercises are carried out.
The third part (4 hours, same evening) is conducted in a public place in Tartu/Tallinn. Previously learned knowledge will be put to test in real life situations.
In the classroom:
Theory and simulations throughout the day (8h)
In public space:
Tackling practical exercises (4h)
