Number of Participants

For groups over 15, several options are available, including:

  • Breaking up the group into smaller groups
  • Extra per person payment (for groups over 25, note activities are abbreviated in many cases due to lack of time)

Best results are seen in smaller teams, in group work over a period of time. As this is an advanced session on specific communication techniques, smaller groups are ideal to give participants ample time to practice based on real-life client scenarios. Some groups also choose individual coaching for select members after the training is over.
