Why is Drama Based Leadership Communication Important and Beneficial
You might have heard others argue that drama-based leadership communication training is a waste of time, but it actually serves as a key to unlocking your team’s full potential. Toxic elements can fester, and even non-toxic workplaces can benefit from the inclusivity and team spirit fostered by a more diverse and inclusive leadership style.
Behaviours that were previously encouraged, whether intentionally or not, or simply ignored, can be rooted out and eliminated. This can pave the way for a team that works together effectively with employees who support and empower one another.
As for the benefits of drama leadership communication training, these are numerous and demonstrate why such training is handy for your managers and leaders. The various activities they’ll participate in will ultimately assist them with more than simply developing positive behaviours. As for the benefits, these include:
- Highlights Issues That Have Gone Unmentioned/ Unnoticed
- Puts Toxic Behaviours Out There for All to See
- Invokes an Emotional Response to Seeing How These Behaviours Affect Others
- Allows for Toxic Behaviours to be Easily Identified
- Develops Problem-Solving Skills
- Improves Presentation and Public Speaking Skills
Plus, our courses can be translated into a variety of languages and adapted to suit different cultures. Ultimately, the purpose of drama-based leadership communication courses is to teach and reinforce workplace-appropriate behaviours while weeding out behaviours that can have a negative impact on employees and customers.
It takes a lot of confidence to lead a group of people, especially if that group contains strong personalities. Lack of confidence can sometimes inadvertently lead to poor leadership as leaders will shy away from any interaction that they aren’t comfortable with. Another plus point is that our courses can help build confidence among your leaders.
As with any form of drama, sometimes a personal touch is needed, and that’s something that we encourage here at Steps. Participants are welcome to contribute free interpretations and open-mindedness concerning observations and re-enactments. How participants contend with scenarios boils down to their problem-solving skills, emotional and social intelligence, and personality.
It’s important to note that we do not force behavioural change onto anyone, and our courses aren’t designed to allow others to gang up on individuals. This isn’t a witch hunt, and we’re not out to shame anyone. The purpose is to allow participants to explore and understand workplace-appropriate behaviours on their own through direct observation.
We empower leaders to change both in terms of verbal and non-verbal communication. Leaders can develop the skills to stand up in front of a small audience, speak out loud, carry out planned or impromptu conversations, and more. All this serves to build confident leaders who command the respect of those they lead.
Our success lies with our incredible team that’s comprised of performance actors. They know just how to coax the best out of individuals, with participants leaving feeling enlightened and ready to be the inclusive, diverse leader that their team needs.
