So, ‘how big is your balloon’?

‘How big is your balloon?’ is an experience that allows people in your organisation to reshape their beliefs about the way in which they communicate in a safe and positive environment, becoming more confident and taking this and applying it in the workplace.

  • Why? Simply put, we want people to gain the confidence they need to communicate effectively.
  • How? We will help people re-build or improve the confidence required to communicate. It benefits your people and it benefits your organisation.
  • What? How big is your balloon is an interactive experience and accompanying resource centre. It is delivered over a short period of time, with long-lasting results

Why is communication so important?

Communication. It should never be downplayed. Fundamental to every business, it provides all levels of an organisation with the ability to connect, engage, influence and inspire. In commercial terms, that means enhanced performance, increased engagement and ultimately a positive impact on your bottom line.

Unfortunately the ability to communicate is becoming a lost art

In a world where digital transformation is changing the way in which people communicate, we are observing more and more people who are struggling to connect with others in a meaningful way. Where once there was a direct conversation, now there are emails, texts and social media, with generations now becoming more and more immersed in their digital upbringing.

And it’s not just generational

Aside from millennials and centennials brought up on digital relationship building, it can be circumstantial. Perhaps you have staff who are returning from extended periods of absence, maternity and paternity leave, sabbaticals, ill health? Each of these areas has been observed to impact confidence in the workplace. And confidence impacts communication. And that impacts commercial performance.

The Experience

Fundamental to every business, communication provides all levels of an organisation with the ability to connect, engage, influence and inspire. In commercial terms, that means enhanced performance, increased engagement and ultimately a positive impact on your bottom line. But unfortunately, the art of communication is not always widely observed.

Utilising the Clifton StrengthsFinder®, we start with self-awareness. Confidence is quantified, using the metaphor of a balloon, inflating to a size relatable to your current confidence levels.

During the day we engage in a range of activities designed to positively impact your confidence and communication. You can review your progress as the size of your balloon inflates – the greater your confidence, the bigger your balloon!
