When you want to transfer skills to larger segments of your workforce, we provide training. Using adult learning principles, participant-centered curricula, and interactive teaching, we provide ‘how-to’ workshops on:
Persuasive Presentations—The person whose message sounds like the most sensible path into the future will define the way. Make sure that person is you. Strong oral and written presentation skills will make your message stick.
Brief Briefings that Get Read—When there is intense competition to get people to read your material, you need to get your message down to one page or it is likely to not be read. Gain the edge with busy people who are tempted to skip over your important briefing documents. In situations when you have more of the reader’s attention, we teach how to construct a document that uses research on how the brain consumes information to make the complex understandable and make it easy for them to say, “Yes”, to your proposals.
Facilitating Meetings—Gain skills to create shorter, more effective meetings that produce a concrete work product and build positive working relationships among the participants. Transform meetings from just talking to meetings that produce a tangible output.
Effective Online Meetings—Learn techniques for having high-engagement, online meetings that produce results. You’ll gain tools and tips for online information sharing, problem identification, situation analysis, options evaluation, and making a concrete decision, all while keeping attendees engaged and contributing.
PDQ Project Planning—Deal with today’s work environment where project teams are expected to deliver solid outcomes with tight budgets, heavy workloads, and short timelines—all with high expectations for the cooperative involvement of multiple players. This interactive, results-oriented workshop teaches practical skills for increasing effectiveness (doing the right things), increasing efficiency (doing things right), and, along the way, demonstrating leadership with the diverse stakeholders involved in a project.
Conflict Management—Learn how to diagnose the sources of conflict, how to diplomatically intervene, how to deal with anger, how to craft a successful dispute resolution process, and how to get durable, lasting agreements that build productive working relationships at the same time.
Managing Difficult Conversations—Learn methods and techniques for managing conversations to coach, negotiate, and direct people to higher performance.
