The 30-hours course capitalises theatre-based activities for the training and development of creative leadership, charisma, communication, human skills, speech and presentation delivery, critical thinking, stress and pressure management, time management etc.

Executives of the modern time require more than technical skills to be effective and successful. While educational programmes offered by traditional universities and colleges covers many of functional/technical knowledge (hard skills), the development of soft skills has been long neglected. Traditional programmes also suffer the weakness of lacking of integration into practical domain. Theories, skills and even mentalities are all delivered through classroom trainings. From pedagogical perspective, it is least preferred and far from effective.

This course is part of the Executive Soft Skills (Theatre-based Training) Series. The course capitalises theatre-based activities for the training and development of creative leadership, charisma, communication, human skills, speech and presentation delivery, critical thinking, stress and pressure management, time management etc.

Statement of Achievement will be issued to students if they achieve 70% attendance or above and achieve a 50% mark from assessment.

The best management starts with managing oneself. The management of oneself requires self-awareness and understanding. Openness and acceptance of what you are, capitalize your strength and to rectify your weaknesses are essential to success.

According to the theory of self-concept, there are three self domains: the real self-concept; the projected self-concept and perceived self-concept. In the modern yet materialistic business world, executives are busy polishing the projected self-concept and very often forgotten the real self-concept. Only through the understanding and continuous development of the real self can enable and nourish a real leader.

This model featured theatre-based activities, games, and exercises for developing technical skills as pedagogies to development leadership and charisma. It utilized pragmatic approaches to address real-life business situations in a fun and enjoyable manner. Students are expected to develop:

Self-Discovery - to understand the real self-concept and to identify one’s characteristics, strengths and weaknesses;

  1. Effective interpersonal, inter-group and intra-group communication;
  2. Understanding of and ability to cope with stress and pressure;
  3. Positive Thinking that enables one to take on challenges;
  4. Creative Thinking for leading and innovations;
  5. Effective and efficient Presentation Skill with personalized style;
  6. Confidence.

Student's experience 
1. It’s a self-discovering and inspiring journey 

I was very impressed with the concepts taught in the 1st lesson on the real-self, projected-self and the ideal-self (not sure if the wordings correct). I found it is so important for us to understand ourselves before we learn different skills on improving our communications and leadership skills! 

2. Learning communications skills by fun games

Through interesting games and drama practice, we understand how different factors like intention, mutual understanding, eye-contact, voice and body language will affect the communications outcomes, and how we can improve the outcomes by changing these factors. 

3. Stepping out of the comfort zone

Again through different interesting and interactive tasks like story-telling and the final project of a business pitch, we can understand our strength and weakness in communications. We were also given tips and advices to overcome our weaknesses and step out our comfort zone. The advices were not only on techniques but also from psychological and mental perspectives. 

4. Accessible to everyone

Leadership and charisma are not the privilege of the senior executives or public speakers, everyone of us can improve our communications skills and demonstrate our leadership in our current position with charisma, if we have a strong and genuine intention to do so!
