Caroline runs a range of different workshops for corporate and institutional clients.
The transformative power of theatre This ground-breaking half-day workshop uses basic theatre skills – ‘Frozen Pictures’ – to explore challenges that leaders face in their organisation, build awareness around these issues and find effective ways to solve these challenges as leaders and teams as well.
Improve their understanding of effective ways of working with a team
See the difference between being reactive and responsive – and how having an effective strategy is important
Learning the importance of both leading and following to be an effective leader
Concretise problems that are being faced by leaders in organisations and develop a step-by-step action plan to resolve challenges
'Rehearsal for real life’ Creating extraordinary behaviour change for organisational transformation
Traditional leadership training often focuses on ways to solve problems without actually enabling participants to literally try out new ways of thinking and doing that builds the ‘muscle’ needed for true transformation in a company. Caroline Watson’s ground-breaking theatre-based workshops act as a ‘rehearsal for real life’ that develops real and meaningful behaviour change around challenges that executives face in a fun, interactive and practical way.
Workshops are minimum 1 full day for, ideally, no more than 10 participants, but, for large teams, it is recommended to extend to 2 or 3 days to optimise learning opportunities for each team member.
At the end of the course, participants will:
Strengthen their leadership skills and power to convince and persuade others
Understand that they have a ‘choice’ to lead in all situations, whether upstream or downstream
Develop assertive communication techniques that create win-win outcomes for all concerned
Build a 360 view on ways to solve challenges in a team
Harness the power of body language, use of space, ‘status’ awareness to develop genuine authority
All workshops are highly practical in nature, going beyond traditional pedagogical approaches to using kinaesthetic learning approaches that enable individuals to develop both awareness and behaviour change to bring about transformation in their company.
