We offer a range of training courses, which we are able to tailor to meet the specific needs of your organisation.  


Advanced Interview Technique

If you want to excel at interviews of any kind, this course is for you. It is appropriate for interviews for recruitment, investigation, sales, negotiations, disciplinary matters, legal and other areas. The techniques will give you the edge, whether you are doing the interviewing or being interviewed.

TIP


     When you meet the people you are interviewing, make a mental note
     of the colour of their eyes. This forces you to look them clearly in the 
     eyes for enough time for them to psychologically register that you 
     are genuinely interested in them as individuals. They will have a 
     much more favourable impression of you.

If a court finds that the bribery of foreign public officials legislation has been contravened they will very likely consider whether or not the organisation has conducted training in this area in deciding on possible punishments. The training is important to help prevent your organisation ever falling foul of the legislation as well as minimising the impact if it ever does.

TIP


     Ensure that agents transacting on your behalf overseas are aware of
     the key requirements of the legislation, especially where they have 
     significant discretions about spending.

Code of Ethics and Conduct

If people arenít aware of the contents of your Code you canít expect them to follow it. There are two aspects to training, one is to give the staff the information, the other is motivating them to use that information. Training sessions are also valuable in dealing with any resistance to the Code and helping to overcome that resistance.

Conflicts of Interest

Many people have suffered unnecessary career damage through allegations of conflicts of interest. In the majority of those cases people simply did not understand conflicts of interest sufficiently to understand that there were problems with their actions. In conflicts it is not only the reality that is important, but also perceptions. The course makes sense of this very grey but hazardous area of ethics and corporate governance.

TIP


     The more significant the decision, the more important the perception
     of others about conflicts of interests become.

Facilitation Skills

A well facilitated meeting or workshop can produce results that surpass the expectations of all concerned. A poorly facilitated one can result in a complete waste of time for participants and an enormous sense of frustration. Facilitation skills determine the difference between the two.

This very practical workshop gives people the skills they need to facilitate workshops or meetings and enhances the skills of those who already do undertake facilitation activities.

TIP


     If someone is being disruptive in your facilitation session, give the  
     group an opportunity to bring the person into line. Generally they will 
     seize the opportunity. On the other hand if you take action you risk 
     antagonising many in the group.

Presentation Skills

The message can be enhanced or killed by the way it is presented. Improving oneís presentation skills increases the effectiveness of the communication and the likelihood of your message being seriously considered and accepted. Whether you are presenting to one person or an auditorium full of people this course will help you.

     Plan at least the first three or four sentences of your presentation 
     word for word. People are invariably the most tense at the 
     beginning of their presentations. If they can increase their 
     confidence about the beginning  they relax more and give the 
     rest of the presentation with greater confidence and are perceived as  
     more authoritative and sincere.

This course helps ensure that the benefits from proper investigations can be achieved while the risks are appropriately dealt with.

Witness in Court skills

How you present yourself in court as a witness may be just as important to winning the case as the evidence that you have to support your case. Research has shown that juries and even judges will often pay more attention to the way a witness presents himself or herself in court than to the facts presented. Learn how to present yourself in a way that will impress juries and judges and help you win your case.

TIP


     Barristers often try to make you lose your composure in court, thus 
     giving the impression that you are not completely rational or reliable. 
     Do not show any anger or lose your temper as judges and juries tend 
     to place a significant amount of reliance on emotional displays.
