Interpersonal Skills

Grainne Suter observes participants as they have a discussion on a training courseThis course is one of the most popular bookings with Midas clients due to its universal relevance and fun, interactive style.

Interpersonal Skills is a complex and important topic. In some senses you could say that most communication training is about interpersonal skills, since it concerns the interaction between people! At its heart though, we believe that IPS is about the ability of a person to have positive, easy and confident interactions with one or two other people at a time.

Our fun, informative and highly practical courses can focus on IPS for a particular status of person. For example, we are often asked for IPS workshops for specifically aimed at Junior or Senior Managers. At other times clients have asked for more generalised courses for everyone in their organisation or directorate.

If you have just one individual that needs IPS training, we do not recommend booking a course. Instead, we suggest you contact us about one to one Midas coaching, as this can help the individual to explore their personal responses to the ideas behind IPS and put the theories into practice.

These are some of the topics we may include in an IPS training course:

  • Interpersonal Skills in practice - what do we mean by IPS?
  • Non-verbal communication
  • The Learning Triangle
  • The impact of one's state of mind on working relationships
  • Personal Effectiveness
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Self awareness and the Inner Voice
  • Frames and filters
  • How Unconscious Bias effects us all
  • The Assertive Communicator
  • Genuine and active listening
  • Asking effective questions
  • Making a positive impact on others
