Our customizable Professional & Personal Development Series addresses four keys essential for overcoming daily challenges and making the most of current opportunities: communication, motivation, working through conflict and strategic thinking. While often treated like distinct competencies, those actually draw strength from and depend on each other. As such, we use an integrated approach leading to greater understanding and mastery. The standard program includes four three-hour modules and can be expanded to cover additional topics. Our pricing structure enables you to cost effectively train any size group.
1. Communication: What We Say Every Day
We need each other; there's no getting around that. Being able to effectively initiate conversations is critical to expanding your influence. Responding well when approached by others is equally important.
2. Motivation: Understanding What Drives Us & Others
What kills motivation in ourselves and others? Lots of things. Fear, apathy, anger and doubt are four big ones. Learn how to keep those at bay and engage with others in ways that generate confidence, interest, comfort and trust.
3. Working Through Conflict: Are You Living with Problems or Solving Them?
Conflict "resolved" by position power often results in lingering resentment and resistance. Compromise, while sometimes a good idea, is rarely the best solution, Fortunately, there are other options.
4. Strategic Thinking: Goals & Productivity
Knowing what you want, accurately assessing available resources and anticipating potential pitfalls are three keys to success. A fourth key is courage. Taking action on even the best plans often requires courage.
Rather than work on one competency at a time, grow all four simultaneously. You leave each session with relevant insights, freshly honed skills and enduring confidence, the kind of confidence required to stay motivated in the midst of inevitable conflict and setbacks. You'll know when to rightly make adjustments and when to persist.
