Stepping Up With Personal Impact Training

Dec 14, 2007
The modern techniques of self-help and personal impact training are ever popular in the Western culture, that it has become easier for people to access such diverse ways of self-improvement. The pop-psychology category on the bookshelves of bookstores, are filled with tips and advice on how to succeed financially, win more friends, attracting more women or how to influence others. Buying the books is one thing, but actually taking part in a self-improvement/motivational programme is another experience.

For some people it is easier for them to take part in something that involves other people and working together in groups. Others prefer one-to-one personal impact training. People who turn to motivational speakers tend to be big businesspersons seeking ways to improve their current business, gain more financial success, or to try to salvage a failed business attempt.

The first things that people notice when signing up to personal impact training is that they are required to go beyond their own comfort zone, by asking questions about themselves that they would not normally ask, interact with people they do not know and often change the way they think about them self and others around them. Very often, the people who take part in this need help on building their confidence, become motivated and more assertive.

The way some motivational speakers work are by setting goals and targets for participants to reach, beginning with keeping a daily journal to record their progress. Audio books and DVDs consist of set instructions and daily lectures/seminars/discussions about various topics relating to motivation and building confidence. Motivational speakers largely speak about their own experiences as a method to try to connect with their audiences. Some training can focus on public speaking, essential business skills, report writing, cold calling, conflict management and business consulting skills.

The down side to buying audio books and DVDs is that this will all be conducted alone, there are no mentors to monitor progress and the person needs to continue with the programme consistently for it to have any positive effect. Attending seminars can generally be helpful in making the first steps towards self-improvement; the tickets are usually very pricey depending on the kind of seminar you are planning to attend. Some seminars target a wider audience seeking motivation or self-awareness. Other seminars focus on specific sectors such as business, finance, management or sales.

Some find this form of personal improvement and development much more effective than taking the route into psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. Alternatively, people find it easier to go through psychotherapy but then continue with motivational therapy. In such cases, these can consist of detailed explanations of certain mild behavioural problems, anxiety, panic attacks and forms of depression. Motivational therapy aids the person to overcome these issues with systematic guides and exercises to help maintain improvement. Success rates are high and people namely those in business have seen improvements appear even before completing the programme.
