Apart from lectures, students of UCTE can also benefit from workshops, where they can gain practical skills - for example learn how to negotiate or prepare a programme and a full scenario of a mass event. Workshops are a place where you can strengthen your creativity and develop your ingenuity. 

From the notes of UCTE student...

Interpersonal Communication

Practical classes that I will always remember. 

Everyone had the opportunity to present themselves, in order to learn how to gesture, talk and sit effectively and improve our interpersonal communication skills. What really is interpersonal communication? It may take a long time to explain. We didn’t learn only about non-verbal communication, but also many interesting facts about ourselves. Who is a visual learner and who is an auditory learner? We discovered it through tests, words or even simple gestures. How to identify when someone is lying? Do restless eyes suggest dishonesty or embarrassment? What is a so-called ‘third eye’? How to shake hands and recognise a ‘limp’ handshake? What is a ‘bone crusher’ or a ‘limp fish’ handshake? How to be assertive? During the workshops we explored these and many more interesting topics. A great deal of practical exercises helped me to overcome a lot of problems and I am now aware of my body language. I have learned how to behave during a job interview, how to properly fold my hands, how to use ‘body talk’ to be well received and how to be more convincing. The Interpersonal Communication workshop has taught me techniques and methods to effectively use communication skills.

Psychology of Negotiation

Every single one of us had something to negotiate in his life - from the price in the store to the brother’s or sister’s CD - with varying degrees of success. Often our efforts ended up with failures.

The course, mysteriously called ‘Psychology of Negotiation’, was conducted as workshops, during which we learned how to force through our ideas or opinions. Everyone already had some experience in this matter but we didn’t know how to make use of it. During the improvised meetings in our imaginary company, we represented different points of view. We had to think of everything - from the atmosphere during our talks and taking right places at the table, to the division of responsibilities and discussing the strategy of action. What seemed easy at the beginning, turned out to be more difficult than we thought. We created and acted out scenarios of conversations, so that we could find out what awaits us if we negotiate in ‘real life’. Watching films was an additional attraction. It would seem that comedies can’t teach us anything, that films we already watched, even several times, can’t provide anything new. But we were wrong. Every time we watched a film, we had to capture something new, that might be useful in the difficult art of negotiation. We could feel the thrill on our own skin and see what it means to negotiate, for example, for a human life. The Psychology of Negotiation workshop has taught me how to behave during the ‘summit meetings’, as well as how to be a successful negotiator in everyday life.
