Motivational Conversation Workshop


To have a motivational conversation you do not have to be a motivational speaker nor do you have to display the hyper energy of a ‘go getter’. The motivational conversation is meant to help the individual you are talking to inspire themselves towards achievement.

The motivational conversation is a calm, caring and focused approach that can be used to counsel, coach, support and / or empower others.

This program will teach you the fundamentals of having a motivational conversation which you can apply in your work, with your family and in social settings. The ability to have a motivational conversation with someone who is facing a challenge gives an added dimension to your relationship and leadership abilities. It will help the other feel supported without feeling intruded upon. It is an interpersonal skill that will never become redundant.

You can also apply the motivational conversation to yourself to help yourself think positively through any challenge you might be facing.
