Answering Tough Questions under Stress

2015-07-30 00:00:00
Company: Media Education CEE, s.r.o.
Can you, as a company representative, do a great job when you’re placed in the hot seat? Can you answer tough questions from a reporter when placed in front of the camera? Can you do the same thing when asked difficult questions by your boss, a client or an investor? Can you handle your emotions, manage your body language and deliver a superb answer in situations that might put your company or career at risk?

If you are unsure, you can do something about it. Conscious strategic communication is a part of any leader’s toolbox.

Join us for a short, intensive workshop on answering tough questions under stress and managing any challenge with a smile. Cristina Muntean will draw on 12 years of conducting interviews as a reporter and more than five years of advising leaders in Central and Eastern Europe on their media communication skills to make this an insightful and practical experience.

When: Thursday July 30, 2015 from 5:30 AM to 9:00 PM CET
Registration from 5:30 – 6:00 PM CET
Workshop from 6:00 – 7:30 PM CET

Prague 18600
Czech Republic

What you will learn:

How to prepare yourself physically, mentally and emotionally before a difficult interview.
How to counteract aggressiveness and hostility with agility.
How to proactively listen and identify the essence of what your questioner is asking.

How to manage your body language, build upon your emotions and stay in charge during the whole interaction.
