Description: Empower you employees to succeed by 'coaching for performance'. This workshop will address skills and abilities, confidence and competence, different learning styles and overall willingness to take responsibility for one's own destiny. Participants will understand the role of the coach vs. an mentor and recognize their own strengths and limitations in this role, thus enhancing the quality of the working relationship with their staff.
|CORP0150||Conscious Time Management
Description: Professionals who are seeking to improve time-management skills so they can perform more effectively will learn to identify effective time-management strategies. These include goal-setting techniques, establishing priorities, importance of work-life balance, as well as identifying the task that are appropriate for delegation. You will become more effective and efficient throughout your work and personal life.
Description: Conflict in the workplace consumes a great deal of energy which can lead to frustrated leaders thinking 'flipping conflict!' But what if leaders could 'flip' conflict into positive, productive, conversations about improvements - every problem is an opportunity! This workshop is about understanding what caused the conflict, identifying difficult situations instead of difficult people and moving an organization forward with creative ideas and positive change. Tools to help build trust, diffuse negative emotions and understanding where the conflict started will help participants deal with conflict as it arises.
|CORP0100||Leadership Fundamentals - Emotional Intelligence
Description: Research proves that in most industries, emotional intelligence (EQ) is twice as important as IQ and technical skills combined. EQ is the measurement of social as well as emotional functioning and how it represents our success and well-being throughout our personal and professional lives. Effective leaders are the people who know their own strengths and are able to self-manage their emotions to stay flexible and positive. Overall, this workshop will increase self-awareness and behaviour, provide strategies for managing emotions and methods of delivering difficult feed back.
Description: This workshop provides an overview of the different types of teams that can be found within different work environments. It will guide participants to use proven techniques that help to build trust within teams and ensure that teams are running at peak efficiency. It will also help with conflict management and team development in order to maximize your team's present and future. Participants will have the opportunity to work through a team simulation to truly understand how to get synergy from a team activity.
