Description: Rhetoric Seminar

Communication is the be-all and end-all at work. In addition to the content of what is said, the way it is conveyed is just as important. With good rhetoric and dialectics, specialists and managers can convince their interlocutors or the audience of themselves and what they have said. A rhetoric seminar helps you to develop your linguistic expressiveness and persuasiveness with the help of a variety of practical exercises and techniques, and to use methods and stylistic devices to convincingly get your point across in the future. In addition, you will sustainably improve your fluency. Investing in the rhetoric seminar - and consequently in articulation, repartee, speaking techniques and further knowledge of rhetoric - strengthens your self-confidence and thus your effectiveness and credibility as a speaker and leads you to successful conversations.

Methodology and Didactics: Rhetoric Seminar

The learning methods used in this training include speech and voice training, as well as numerous practice situations for beginners. The aim of the exercises is to create a rhetorical strengths and weaknesses profile of the seminar participants, as well as the subsequent training of rhetorical means and manners, which are shown at the beginning via trainer input. Trying out the toolbox of communication methods is evaluated by means of video analysis. Group discussions and the use of training materials round off the training. Due to numerous exercises per speaker, the number of participants in the rhetoric seminars of the Dr. G. Kitzmann Academy is strongly limited and contributes to a better knowledge transfer within the training format.

What makes a good rhetorician?

A good rhetorician can convince his or her counterparts both in dialogue with his or her interlocutors and in monologue during lectures or presentations. You have mastered the speaker's etiquette if you:

  • are a good listener: A dialogue needs at least two participants. A good speaker listens properly to his or her interlocutor and responds to what is being said.
  • are authentic: Rhetoric is not the same as acting. You should not pretend and manipulate your counterpart, but be convinced of your opinion yourself and represent it.
  • Dealing with objections: A good rhetorician does not convince with his or her own person, but with a clearly formulated point of view of his or her opinion and can deal with counter-arguments accordingly well.
  • Use gestures & facial expressions: Underline your arguments with body language stylistic devices.
  • Don't ramble: Filler words have no place in a good argument. Also refrain from using a lot of foreign words, depending on the interlocutor or audience.
  • Be able to articulate yourself well: Expression is everything.

In the rhetoric seminar we teach you all the necessary basics of successful rhetoric, which you will know how to use in practice after completing the seminar.

Ensure learning transfer with selected e-learnings

Rhetoric: This is how the term is understood in our rhetoric seminar

The term "rhetoric" comes from the ancient Greek and means the art of oratory. Rhetoric is understood as purposeful, verbal and non-verbal communication behaviour between people. The verbal area, articulated by means of the voice, accounts for only a small part of what is conveyed in terms of information content. The far greater contribution to the performance of interpersonal communication is made by non-verbal components such as body language, gestures and facial expressions. Through the use of oratory, the audience can be emotionally activated in conversations, captivated in terms of content and ultimately convinced.

The methods serve, for example, to structure a speech, reduce nervousness and use linguistic ability. You will learn all this in our rhetoric seminars. Inspire your audience with basic, theoretical skills that specifically strengthen your rhetorical abilities in practice. Our experienced lecturers will help you to realise your full potential!

Why is participation in a rhetoric seminar so important?

Those who can express themselves according to the situation and the participants of an event are heard. If the rhetorician uses the supporting skills of rhetoric in interpersonal communication, she radiates sovereignty, self-confidence and authenticity. Participation in the rhetoric seminar is profitable for you because you will receive tips and advice on how to optimise your everyday conversation. As a result, you will strengthen your eloquence and expressiveness. Use this rhetoric course to train for your personal situation:

What challenges does the rhetoric seminar prepare me for?

Have you also experienced the following incidents? You are giving an important speech and are unsettled by an unexpected interjection. You are giving presentations to executives or larger groups in your company and suddenly lose the thread. You are trying to make a point and get caught up in your own argumentation.

These training events offer assistance in achieving success in the above-mentioned examples. You will be taught tips and tricks that you can then try out in speeches and professional presentations. In addition, after each exercise in the rhetoric seminar, you will receive feedback from the trainer and the participants on your appearance and argumentation, so that in the next stressful situation you will know exactly which formulation is target-oriented and when.
