Accent Neutralization

Project Info

Project Description

 

Purpose

We often find that our delegates are flawless in their use of the English language and the only need for development is in the area of sounding more ‘neutral’. Using our proprietary Accent Neutralization tool, we have been able to quickly and permanently improve the way people sound. This course will help participants display more confidence and build their executive presence.

Learning Application Tools

  • Start Stop Continue (SSC)

    After the programme we get the delegates to fill out an SSC form, this helps them focus on one learning objective and usually is the basis of the post-training plan.

  • Coaching

    We conduct individual or focused group sessions where the delegates can focus on how they can leverage their strengths to be more effective in a given situation.

  • Recognition Emails™

    To motivate participants, we often send out personalised recognition emails acknowledging and thanking them for their contribution in the programme.

  • Practice Tasks

    Practice tasks allow the delegates to hone their skills in a safe and private environment.

  • Retention Tools

    To help remember all of the content shared, we create retention tools that carry a synopsis of the key topics. These can later be printed and placed at their workstations.
