Rhetoric is the art of speaking well.
The positive aspect: You can learn the ability to do this at any time.
Our rhetoric courses and communication trainings help you significantly to improve your linguistic skills and your expressiveness.
In small groups you train speech and conversation techniques and learn to emphasize your words with the right body language. Through rhetoric training you will also gain more and more confidence when appearing in front of an audience: you will receive tips on how to deal with stage fright and which effective methods you can use to respond to critical questions and remarks.

Briefly for understanding: Rhetoric originated in the spirit of ancient Greece - but even after more than 2000 years it has not lost its relevance. On the contrary. Because a skillful rhetorician knows how to convince with words. Thanks to his communicative skills, he can lead and inspire people. His lectures and speeches captivate the audience.
These are skills that still play an important role in professional life today. After all, your impact on others largely depends on your rhetorical skills. If you get your message across clearly, you will win the attention of others.

Depending on the particular rhetoric course, our management institute focuses on different areas. We offer:

  • Professional moderating and presenting in our moderation training course
  • Effective techniques for conflict resolution in our Conflict Management training course
  • Training of rhetorical skills in our Argumentation Training Seminar

And these are only a few examples of our multifaceted offer around the topic of rhetoric and communication.

Communication is the act of understanding between individuals. The term derives from the Latin "communicatio" and means "communication. However, this does not mean the words that interlocutors exchange with each other. Communication takes place on different levels.

A distinction is made between

  • verbal
  • paraverbal
  • nonverbal

communication. Voice pitch and volume (paraverbal component) and posture and facial expressions (nonverbal component) are often more important for communication than the information content of the verbal expression.

Good and professional communication takes all three levels into account and prioritizes them accordingly.

In our body language training, for example, you will learn how your posture and gestures affect others and how you can interpret the non-verbal messages of others. It combines rhetoric and body language, for smoother future business negotiations.

Our customer interaction training teaches you how to use words, voice and facial expressions correctly when dealing with difficult colleagues and customers. The aim of this rhetoric training is to make communication more positive and more relaxed for all sides.

The Management Institut Dr. A. Kitzmann offers rhetoric and communication seminars. Despite different focuses, the training courses are all similar in design: They take place over two days, so that participants have enough time to get involved in the subject matter. To implement your learning, our communication training courses have plenty of room for practical exercises in addition to the theoretical part.

The focus is always on improving your communication skills - but our rhetoric seminars also cover the following points:

  • Your effect on others
  • Strengthening self-confidence and self-assurance
  • Sovereignty and authenticity - dare to be yourself
  • Recognizing and reacting to subliminal signals and words in others
  • Reducing prejudices - approaching others openly
  • Dealing with each other respectfully
  • Develop a "psychological" intuition and thus master difficult situations

As a training provider, we bring more 50 years of extensive experience - our first communication seminars started back in the 1970s. Since then, we have expanded our portfolio of seminars: In the meantime, there are separate communication trainings for companies, telephone trainings and an advanced training in etiquette and good manners.

With our rhetoric trainings we are represented in different cities, saving long travelling times.
In small groups of maximum 9 persons you have the opportunity to intensively familiarize yourself with the subject. You will receive important input from our trainers and carry out individual as well as group work. The subject matter is taught with a strong practical focus, including a number of exercises and case studies. In this way, you will "playfully" learn various methods and techniques for improved communication. Furthermore, you will benefit from the exchange of experiences with the other participants.

Our institute specializes primarily in the further training of specialists and executives from business and administration. A main focus is therefore on rhetoric for executives. But of course, employees who do not hold a leading position as well as self-employed persons are also welcome. Men and women who are generally interested in the topic of communication and would like to expand their linguistic skills through professional training.
