Module 1—Effective Communication

It seems the problem with effective communication is the illusion that it actually occurred.  Make each contact with a co-worker a positive and productive experience.  This practical and logic skill building 4-hour program tailored to modern business models provides participants with a blueprint for creating relationships that compel people to not only work together but want to work together.  (4 hours)

Module 2—Change—Getting Your Team to make the Shift

Humans are notorious for liking the status quo.  Getting people to change to a new way of doing things can be one of the most difficult tasks a manager or supervisor can undertake.  A supervisor will be far more successful when they understand what drives the individuals on their teams.  This module explores the challenges leaders face and how to tackle those challenges in a way that speaks to the individual on the team instead of trying to force the change on the whole. (4 hours)

Module 3—Expressing Yourself – Presenting Ideas

The ability to express oneself and present ideas clearly and persuasively in a manner that gets the attention ones ideas deserve and get them viewed as a leader is a high priority business skill.  The participant will learn how to organize their thoughts with a focus on addressing the needs of the listeners and achieving their objectives while delivering their message clearly and concisely.  They will have a greater understanding of how the audience perceives them.  (4 hours)

Module 4—Setting Expectations

To perform well, employees need to know more than their up-to-date job description; they need to know what will make them successful.  Performance expectations serve as a foundation for communicating about performance throughout the year. They also serve as the basis for assessing employee performance. When a leader and an employee set clear expectations about the results that must be achieved and the methods or approaches needed to achieve them, they establish a path for success. (4 hours)

Module 5—Constructive Feedback

Feedback is data driven information that lets an employee know what they are doing well and what they can adjust in order to get the desired outcome.  Constructive feedback is much more than “good job” or “that’s not how you should be doing it.”  It is important that Constructive Feedback be done through a conversation so that the desired outcome is not only understood but attained.  Participants will practice using included worksheets to prepare for both types of conversations. (4 hours)

Module 6—Critical Thinking

Critical thinking is the core element of effective problem solving, quality decision making, sound analysis and good judgment. How do you apply critical thinking skills in your job? Do you recognize your assumptions and separate fact from opinion? Do you evaluate arguments and take time to carefully form conclusions?  By incorporating critical thinking into all aspects of your job, you can become a valuable contributor and help increase your organization’s competitive edge in today’s business environment.  (4 hours)
