Encore II – tools and skills to enhance cross-sectoral communication
Encore 2 is a training course with the aim to improve the quality of daily and business connections by sharing and exchanging tools and practices from different sectors and different fields of communication.
We invite you to identify your usual communication patterns and create new ones for new situations.
If you are selected, you are going to get a preparation task before the training. You need to finish it before the training and it is there to support you to create awareness of your actual life (both personal and professional) situation.
We are going to work from morning till late evening. The program is super intense and very well packed.
People who decide that they want to participate are going to have opportunities to experience and explore different methods from the basics of NLP, through the 4 different communication styles till some art therapy. Activities what we planned for the course are all from non-formal educational activities and by which you are learning by experience. Meaning that we are going to do and do things. Every day, every session is going to use the knowledge/experience of the previous ones and build on it, every step is going to be a bit more difficult in order that we keep our brain, body and state alive and fresh and ready all the time.
Your enterprise or project will be the main focus. We will have a look from many different angles. From the point of a grant agency, from the point of a business company, from the point of a target group.
With the activities, we are going to share with you tools to reshape, reframe and reform your idea if it is needed to reach the dreamed goal/destination/target/aim.
If you decide to come you also commit yourself that you are going to disseminate the results of the training with an activity back home. This is the most important part of the project. During this dissemination event, you can measure how much knowledge you can really implement into your life.
-Day 1: Creating the base-
We are going to set all the frames of the training and create together the playground for the group.
-Day 2-5: Preparation phase-
You will have a chance to go through processes, which supports you to see your own ways and to experience how does it work in a group context. All the activities are designed in a way that they prepare you to be able to do a presentation on Day 6.
We are going to deal with the topics of:
– 4 different styles of communication
– assertive communication
– intercultural conflicts
– VARKOG modalities
– body awareness
– body language
– state management
– presentation skills
-Day 6: MY big day-
During this day participants are going to be outdoor. Each and every participant are going to receive an individual challenge plus they are going to have a chance to present what they prepared for.
-Day 7: OUR big day-
From the individual challenges, we move one level upper and we create accomplish a group challenge together.
-Day 8: Planning and closing-
The last day is dedicated to finalizing the master plans for the disseminations.
It is also there to close the relationships in between and to evaluate the program.
After the training, we will continue the communication online to share how the shared tools support developing your idea. Trainers are going to be available for online consultation.
We target people, who are willing to learn and ready to experience something new, something different. If you decided to apply and you are selected, for sure you will have a chance to explore and expand your usual ways of communication and connection.

We are going to ask you every day to do a bit more than the day before. We are going to support your learning, by creating the maximum space for you to learn and offering a safe learning environment, where everything is possible.
If at least one tool, activity, process catches your attention and you learn something new from it, then your training was successful. If you will manage to build it into your daily life, then it means that you managed to master that technique and you are master of something unique.

They are going to be assisted by a small international team who are there to learn and to experience connection and communication from a different point of view.
