Experiential Communication Activities...

What's the best way to help individuals and teams develop their communication skills? If, like us, you believe it's by engaging participants in thought provoking activities that demand, test, challenge and develop a wide range of communication skills then you'll find MTa kits useful.

Our activities can be used to encourage discussion on the fundamentals of communication but you'll also find that our activities are sophisticated enough to be used at surprisingly senior levels. We design our activities to focus on more than just the 'technicalities' of communication, you'll find participants questioning the attitudes, behaviours and approaches that underpin the way they communicate. 

The kits we recommend for developing communication skills are:

Why use an experiential approach to develop communication skills?

MTa's communication activities can be used in a wide variety of organisational and business contexts. Experiential learning is particularly well suited to helping teams and individuals improve their communication skills. Why?

Communication is a practical skill, understanding the theory behind effective communication can help but real improvements can only be made if participants are given an opportunity to put theory into action and apply their skills. In many case individuals have very different styles of communication and will benefit from very different messages.

Imagine an activity involving an individual who has a tendency to 'over talk' and a quiet, passive individual who is reluctant to express their views. By reflecting on the activity the two individuals are likely to develop opposite strategies for improvement, based on their personal style.
