FAQs about the in-house

Quick-Wittedness Training

Europe-wide

Can you briefly describe the profile of your quick-wittedness trainers?

Our quick-wittedness trainers are nationally and internationally excellent speakers. Our trainers have received awards in various national and international speech competitions: TOP speakers, World Cup quarter-finalists, German champions in debating, finalists in various competitions.

With our 1-day quick-wittedness training, your employees will increase their competence to react quick-witted and self-confidently to verbal attacks noticeably in just one day. For questions and further information, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@argumentorik.com.

How many people can attend an in-house quick-wittedness training?

The fewer people participate in a quick-wittedness seminar, the more possibilities the individual has to exercise. We recommend a maximum of 12 active participants, with an unlimited number of employees who can be present as so-called “silent observers”.

Our goal is to significantly increase the quick-wittedness of each participant.

Are the practical quick-wittedness exercises tailored to our company needs?

Yes! In the quick-wittedness training, the trainer first presents the 30 most effective quick-wittedness techniques.

Then he practices the 30 techniques with each employee in 2 realistic simulations of verbal attacks from the job. In these simulations, which are integrated in the seminar plan, the aim is to put the learned techniques into practice immediately and then to analyze how the employees act when countering.

What is the relationship between theory and practice?

We have been observing for years that the realistic simulations of verbal attacks from work have the greatest learning effect for our clients.

And that they regularly regard our quick-wittedness exercises as the “highlight”. However, since it is your training, you can specify exactly the relationship between theory and practice.

That is why we attach great importance to practice. Further information on the content and exercises can be found in the seminar schedule.

Do participants also receive video feedback?

We offer to accompany the quick-wittedness seminar with a camera. This method has proven to be very useful in the past and has been highly enlightened by employees, as the video allows for a more detailed analysis of the 2 simulations.

If you or individual employees do not want video analysis, of course we can do without.

Which seminar variant is the best for my team?

We recommend the “classical training” (BASIC) if you would like to book a basic seminar for your team on the subject of quick-qittedness, in which fundamental concepts and the best quick-wittedness techniques are discussed.

The “tailor-made training” (PRO) variant is recommended if you would like to deal with job and situation-specific quick-wittedness cases with your team and the basic knowledge is already available.

And we recommend the third variant, “tailor-made & online library” (PREMIUM), if you want to give your employees long-term access to valuable knowledge, with each participant having access to the Argumentorik Masterclas (over 30 online courses) so that each participant can develop independently.

You can combine the classic and tailor-made seminar into a 2-day event.

Please select now the variant that suits best for you.

Is it possible to conduct the training online (e.g. using Zoom or Microsoft Teams)?

Yes! We already have a lot of experience – and above all – very good experience when it comes to online trainings. Our preferred online tool is Zoom.

Of course we are flexible and use your preferred online tool successfully as well. Because in “digital rhetoric” it is not only a question of the technology, but also of a professional appearance in front of the camera.

Whether online trainings or face-to-face trainings: Write us your wishes and ideas in your non-binding request. We’ll find the best solution for you.

What is the unique selling point of the Argumentorik Academy?

In addition to our excellent quick-wittedness trainers, we offer every participant topic-specific online courses for sustainable knowledge transfer, e.g. the online course “Schlagfertigkeit: Die 30 besten Schlagfertigkeits-Techniken” (in German).

The Argumentorik Online Academy portfolio already includes more than 30 online courses on communications, business skills and personality. Please select now the variant that suits best for you.
