Do you often have to get together with colleagues and work together to solve a problem? To be successful and productive, you need to have certain skills and levels of critical thinking, communication skills and the ability to find common ground. And if it still needs to be done, communicating only in English, then this is another challenge.
During the game, participants will be able to practice solving imaginary, but quite possible in real life problems, using only English. This is a dual practice: first, the communication skills needed in the 21st century and aimed at collaboration, coordination of plans and actions, and second, the practice of English under the guidance of an experienced coach from the UK.
Trainer: Kate Lloyd, Academic Director of London School of English, Kyiv, Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from Trinity College, London, Postgraduate Certificate in Management from the Chartered Management Institute, previously a project manager for the UK Civil Service.
Main partner: London School of English.
Target audience: professionals wanting to improve their use of problem solving language in English through practice in a fictional situation, this can include those in management, but also those looking to move into management roles in future.
Participants will be put into groups and each given the situation of a fictional chain of companies who has problems with their market share. They will be provided with a list of suggestions for the strategic direction of the company and will work together to agree the way forward. Participants will then present their proposed strategies to the main group and the group will discuss the possible successes and failures. At the end, we will listen to what these companies are really doing and compare the real strategies to those they suggested.
