Course Options

One day courses (good)

The one-day course offers the fundamental knowledge and strategies necessary to improve communication. We realize that scheduling personnel for a two-day seminar is often challenging, so we offer our condensed option during which most of the material is covered.  Although it is very condensed and does not allow as much time as the two-day course for role plays, instructor feedback, and video examples, many institutions still find great value in this condensed program. In addition to our Verbal Judo Contact professional course, we have one day courses in leadership, contacts with the mentally ill, classroom de-escalation and resolving organization conflict.  

Two day courses (better)

The two-day course builds upon the information delivered in the one-day course and provides the opportunity for students to practice learned skills an open and safe setting. We have found the two-day seminar to be very effective at changing behavior due to the time allotted for practical scenarios and group exercises.  Additionally, the two-day course allows the instructor and the students more time to focus on the needs of individual students.

Three day courses (best)

The three day course focuses on the entire organization starting with a one-day supervisory course followed by two-days of training for line staff. Participants gain all of the benefits of the one and two-day courses. Additionally, the management team is familiar with Verbal Judo concepts and and can support their staff as it is used in the organization.

Four day instructor courses

The four-day agency instructor course is designed for organizations who will be doing frequent Verbal Judo refresher courses internally. Instructors certified in this course are limited to teaching only at their respective agency. We host several instructor courses throughout the year. We offer agency specific instructor courses if the host can guarantee 10 participants.

Speaking Engagements, Webinars and Hybrid Courses

We have courses specifically designed for law enforcement, business, education, medical and leadership. Each course has the flexibility to cater to a range of skill sets within your team. For most courses, we come to you, so your team is in a familiar learning environment. If your organization deals with people, we have a verbal judo course to suit.

Verbal Judo courses are available from one to four days. We also do keynote speaking engagements and can create customized courses.

Our instructors are often asked to be keynote speakers and give shorter presentations at large events and conferences. If you are seeking a Verbal Judo instructor for such an occasion please contact us with the details.   

If you need specific training which does not fit into the above time-frames, we can partner with you to create a customized webinar or hybrid course for your organization.
