Benefits of Using Drama for Management Communication Training
There are many benefits to Steps‘ drama based management communication training. By allowing employees and managers to participate and communicate through different diverse scenarios, it will lead to the development of more than just behavioural changes!
Drama based training’s benefits include:
- Shedding light on issues that needed to be mentioned.
- Displaying out in the open behaviours of the employees that are occurring in the organisation.
- Allows for emotional observation as they see the effect of their behaviours on themselves and others.
- The practicality of the scenarios allows for easy identification of the behaviours.
- Problem solving skills are tested and honed.
- Enables multicultural learning methods while incorporating multiple languages.
- Presentation skills and public speaking.
Drama Builds Confidence
Drama based management communication training courses are made to teach and reinforce specific workplace appropriate behaviours. Yet, our participants benefit from the drama and acting side of our courses as well.
To stand up in front of others and act out scenarios is no simple task. It takes courage, skill, and a strong personality to put yourself in the spotlight. Therefore, to enact and portray yourself in front of others builds confidence.
Your employees will build confidence in their behaviours, body language, and their communication as they learn proper workplace behaviours.
Much like the theatre, sometimes you have to add a personal touch to your art. Here at Steps, we encourage free interpretations and open mindedness when it comes to our observations and reenactments.
How employees deal with the set-up scenarios is based on their problem solving skills, their emotional and social intelligence, and their personality. The floor is theirs to let their creativity and inspiration flow!
We do not force behaviour onto your employees; rather we allow them to explore and understand proper behaviours on their own through the use of observation.
It’s Fun and Engaging
Steps was founded by performance actors that were helping student doctors with patient communication. It was an easier way for new students to learn how to communicate while removing the pressure of it being a real scenario.
The key term here is “removing pressure”. Drama based training is fun for everyone! Observing or enacting scenarios are great ways to train behaviour improvement skills and deliver a strong message regarding behaviour. Some participants will self-reflect while acting and even have a good laugh regarding themselves.
Improves Both Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication
To act or perform, you must do two things; move and speak. Drama based management training is excellent for helping out with both verbal and non-verbal communication. To stand up and act in front of a small audience, speak out loud, carry out a planned or impromptu conversation all are amazing ways to build verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
