Talk2Us presents Impact Factory at IABC Africa conference
Talk2Us brings Impact Factory trainers to South Africa. During their first visit, they will present a networking session at the 2011 IABC Africa conference to be held in October.
Impact Factory is a world leader in the field of experiential leadership communication training, helping people develop their soft skills by offering options, choices, changes in perspective and attitude and an opportunity to experience real change that leads to quick and radically modified behaviour.
During the session at the IABC Conference, two Impact Factory trainers - Tina Lamb and Danni Carr - will work with delegates to enable them to put new behaviours into practise. When delegates feel they are being taught things they ‘ought’ to do, the work goes no further than the room it’s done in. As soon as some kind of imperative are placed on the development, it becomes a “training session” and defeats the purpose of personal development. To develop better soft skills, people need to be able to identify the behaviours that work for them, what behaviours get in the way of their effectiveness and what else they could do instead.
Talk2Us CEO, Linda Hamman, says, “It is well recognised today that businesses are acknowledging the role softer skills play in organisations. If leadership is not equipped with communication skills to ‘sell’ organisational objectives, it is difficult to secure an employee buy-in to change behaviours that deliver the sought-after results. The success of internal communication no longer resides solely in the message, but in the quality of the interaction”
Impact Factory has trained both communicators and business leaders in some of the world’s leading organisations, including Bloomberg, ASDA, Barclays, BASF, Lexis Nexis, Roche, BP, GlaxoSmithKline, Deloitte, DHL, Merrill Lynch and other. Their expertise will now be offered locally through Talk2Us, which has an extensive client base comprising blue-chips, multinationals and SMEs, including Nedbank, Roche, Volkswagen, South African Police Services, Metso, Gijima, 3M, TFMC, Unilever and others.
