Product Description


We have been living in hierarchies for hundreds of years, which has not only shaped our personality, but also our language. Most of us spend their working life in hierarchical organsizations. There we find concentration of power, politics, take over battles or power and price wars. If we seek for overcoming structural power and violent communication, we have to be aware of our language patterns and practice an appreciative communication style which we apply independent to whom we talk. Only then we communicate on eye sight. The training opens the doors:

  • Disconnecting language: praise, blame, advice, excuses and instructions
  • Basics of appreciative communication
  • Thoughts on holding conversation at eye level
  • Example: conversations with employees
  • Example: sales pitches
  • Example: expressing criticism

It is recommended that participants who do not have basic knowledge of appreciative communication join the training >>>'Appreciation' first. This training can be combined with all other trainings from Sommer & Partner Consulting GmbH.

Learning Objective

After the training participants recognize and understand traditional language patterns. They understand why this language is 'violent' and know the impact of this sort of speech. They know methods how to prepare and hold conversation on eye sight. They have practiced this knowledge in exercises and can transfer their knowledge into their private and professional life.

Duration, Location and Format

The training lasts two hours and takes place in a virtual room. Access information will be provided in advance. If you have specific questions or case studies you would like to discuss during the training, let us know on the order form.
