Topics Portfolio

You'll find the top requested employee training and development topics. The content is timely and relevant. What are they?

Emotional Intelligence, Creative & Innovative Thinking, Time & Organizational Management, Collaboration & Communication for Team Productivity & Collaboration (Team building), Manager as Coach, The Leader Within.

Below is a list of signature topics.  We call our workshops LAUNCH & Learns because we know that the learning just begins when your teams first hear the information; the training takes place when it's being purposefully applied - embedded into the everyday work experience. 

Each onsite client has the option of a full or 1/2 day session along coupled with e-coaching follow ups specific to the topic delivered coupled with a mobile learning tag on.  In some cases - with a tight budget - mobile training may be a great alternative choice.

Finally, an optional follow up individual or group coaching component is offered. The cost is determined based on the customized needs of the client.

Our philosophy? "Everyday is a training day", when employees are taught how to leverage their everyday work experience to learn and grow... and that part if free!

Powering Up Team Collaboration & Communication

I believe one of the most critical diversity issues today is not necessarily race of ethnicity, but personality differences on which team members get the least amount of training. This essential workshop helps members identify their own personality type in a very fun way and also gain understanding and a sense of value of others with a engaging and enlightening interactive activity.

That understanding will serve to build team synergy, increase effective collaboration, nurture positive daily interaction of team members all to serve getting better results!

Leadership from the Inside-Out
Don't let the title fool you...this is a workshop designed for every employee and works from the premise that every employee is a leaders and should be empowered to see themselves that way.

Additionally, an essential principle in effective leadership is who people are on the inside will dictate the kind of leader and the kind of team they will have on the outside. The inside can be characterized and authentic personal power.

Attendees are guided through 13 points of a personal power wheel to provide tangible touch points for creating and maintaining personal power. This establishes the foundation for authentic leadership
This is a must have, foundational workshop for EVERY employee (individual contributor) and leader in your organization and that's why it's listed first. Click here for outline

The Unspoken Keys to Communicating With Tact & Finesse
A fresh approach to teaching effective communication is by teaching that we are not necessarily speaking to a person but to their mind. An essential component of communicating effectively is understanding how the mind works and then with that knowledge using unique techniques that can be used to achieve better outcomes. Some of the techniques are taken from NLP (neuro linquistic programing). I call these specific techniques "3D Communication."
