The skills developed will enable you to become more aware of what drives you, and ways to develop this. The outcome is you becoming more self-motivated and in charge of your day to day experiences.

You will leave the workshop feeling more motivated and successful in both your professional and personal life.

Communication – Tips to improve Your Style

•    More confident when dealing with any/all staff?
•    Known for your clear and empathic communication style?

If this ‘spoke to you’ the Communication Workshop is the one for you. In this workshop you will be taught the process of communication as well as personal responsibility in effective communicating. You will also look at ways to identify verbal, vocal and non-verbal signals that emanate in the workplace. Focus is given to building skills and confidence in assertive communication – while leaving the person intact! The strategies taught are highly experiential in nature and you will leave with a ‘tool-kit’ to implement knowledge gained.

Negotiation Skills – Techniques to Master this

•    Wondered if there was a more effective way to master this?

If this grabbed your attention, the Negotiation Skills Workshop is suitable for you. This explores the role of negotiation in the workplace and its direct relevance in fostering the right attitude and reactions essential for successful business interactions. Beginning with a self-assessment to determine your current level, strategies are developed to create a tailored, individual plan to increase this.

•    The dominant/negative attitude some people have?
•    You would like to deal with this in a more effective way?    

If you felt drawn to this, the workshop on Dealing with Difficult People is for you. This looks at many aspects of difficult behavior experienced in workplaces. It focuses on identifying your particular areas of concern and then delivers tools to match the specific behaviours that are challenging for you personally at work. You will learn to understand why behaviours are present and identify what responses are useful for you to develop further. You will leave the workshop feeling more empowered to deal with those particularly ‘challenging’ behaviours you see on a daily basis.

These include - goal setting; prioritisation; managing interruptions; procrastination and scheduling. Some areas highlighted are - minimising interruptions faced daily, to do lists, contingency plans and planning to achieve your workload each day.
