Career Exploration and Management
Many aspects of choosing and managing a career are related to an individual's personality type. This workshop explores preferred work tasks and work environments - as well as the most and least popular occupations for each attendee's personality type - and it offers strategies for improving job satisfaction. We include interactive exercises to explore personality type and career matching. This session ends with goal setting and decision making.

Conflict Management and Resolution Workshop
Conflict adds unneeded stress in the workplace and negatively impacts morale. Our workshops help participants constructively resolve conflict between colleagues, putting the focus back on being productive. Skilfully managed, discord can become a catalyst to personal, professional, and organizational growth. Not only is overt conflict costly and immediately harmful it is insidious. Latent conflict can, in time, corrode the very core of your organization's functional effectiveness.
This workshop provides a program that will help your employees improve their conflict resolution skills and use it to forge productivity and company growth. Our program focuses on resolution of conflict with preventative and proactive techniques that are holistic in design.
By investing in this workshop yours will be a better workplace with more engaged employees and loyal customers.
Collaboration and Client Service
Regardless of the level or position of your employees, they have to work with and for other people in order to get things done. Whether it's their boss, peers, or direct reports, people sometimes react emotionally and prioritize their own agendas instead of focusing on what is in the team's, and ultimately, your company's best interest. This course is a solution that you can use to help your employees turn around challenging workplace dynamics and learn how to collaborate with their colleagues at all levels. It provides concrete tactics and proven techniques for improving business relationships and helping your people deliver improved service to internal and external clients.
If you're doing more and enjoying it less, it's time to get out of the time-trap and back to productivity! An inability to manage time will result in you not accomplishing what you need to in order to be successful in work and life. This workshop offers strategies and tactics to help employees at all levels gain control over deliverables and take charge of their professional life by effectively prioritizing and managing interruptions.
Influencing Others at Work
Getting anything done in the business world, whether convincing someone to make a hiring decision, fund a project, or sign a proposal, requires the ability to influence others. In this seminar, participants focus on key sources of influence that can be leveraged for success in the workplace. This workshop is rich with skill-building exercises that help participants strengthen their ability to influence others. The core focus is on learning how to build deep, meaningful, and significant workplace relationships that engender trust, connection, and therefore influence.
Leadership Development Workshops
Coaching for Excellence
Leaders learn to develop and apply a set of core coaching skills and process to accelerate team performance in accomplishing organizational objectives.
This coaching process creates an environment of trust that supports the development and goals of their teams.
One of the most important elements of any organization's success is the quality of its leadership. In previous decades, an organization could rely on a small number of leaders to insure its success. Today, all organizations - public, private, and non-profit - live in a much more complex and competitive environment. To be successful in today's environment, an organization must develop leadership at all levels.
This program has been designed to bring out the best in existing and emerging leaders.
Emotionally intelligent managers and supervisors are your company's greatest assets. Often, the place to begin Emotional Intelligence training is with managers and supervisors. They solve problems, resolve conflict, and build teamwork. On the other hand, managers and supervisors with low levels of Emotional Intelligence sabotage their own efforts to build teamwork. These managers fail to tune into the emotions of their employees, and in their efforts to solve problems and improve productivity, they tend to alienate the members of their teams.
Whether you are interested in a one-time workshop or an ongoing program including coaching, we can provide the right program for your team. Start raising the collective Emotional Intelligence of your team today.
Dealing with Difficult People
Do you know how to work with difficult people? How many of these personalities do you recognize?
- The Know-It-Alls
They're arrogant and usually have an opinion on every issue. When they're wrong, they get defensive.
- The Passives
These people never offer ideas or let you know where they stand.
- The Dictators
They bully and intimidate. They're constantly demanding and brutally critical.
- The Gripers
Is anything ever right with them? They prefer complaining to finding solutions.
- The "Yes" People
They agree to any commitment, yet rarely deliver. You can't trust them to follow through.
- The "No" People
They are quick to point out why something won't work. Worse, they're inflexible.
We're guessing you recognize them. They're the people you work with, sell to, depend on, and live with. Learn to deal with them quickly and confidently by attending this workshop.
Crucial Conversations is a course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics, at all levels of your organization. By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you'll begin to surface the best ideas and make high-quality decisions.
Engage in extensive in-class practice, group participation, and personal reflection as you explore and master these crucial skills.
