Soft Skills Training (Essential Skills) 

Most employees lack essential skills known as soft skills. Our training focuses on behavioral competencies that improve interpersonal skills, or "people skills" that build relationships of trust, empathy, and productive interactions. Participants will explore anger management, conflict resolution, negotiation, communication skills, and team building. Enhance personal productivity, strategic thinking and more creative problem solving strategies.

Soft skills may in fact be more important for career development and organizational success over the long term than many specific occupational skills.  

Delivering Constructive Criticism

Delivering Constructive Criticism is one of the most challenging things for anyone. Through this workshop your participants will gain valuable knowledge and skills that will assist them with this challenging task. When an employee commits an action that requires feedback or criticism it needs to be handled in a very specific way.

Constructive Criticism if done correctly will provide great benefits to your organization. It provides the ability for management to nullify problematic behaviors and develop well rounded and productive employees. Constructive feedback shows an employee that management cares about them and will invest time and effort into their careers.

Diversity in the Workplace

Society is becoming more diverse and so is, the workforce, marketplace and economy. Companies who inhibit employment, development, retention, and promotion of diverse groups in the workplace will be the most vulnerable to the changing global market. One of the most important skills in today’s global market is, understanding how to manage diversity in the workplace.

With new emerging global markets, diversity has taken on a new importance in the workplace. Team work is critical and those companies who understand the importance of increasing diversity and are able to integrate it into their company functions and use strategies to their corporate culture will be productive and competitive in the global market.

How to Identify and Help the Troubled Employee

In today’s workplace, the retention of employees are critical to organizational success. However, many employees are facing more personal problems than ever before. In addition, employers’ expectations and rapid changes in the workplace contribute to stress which stimulate thoughts, beliefs and actions known as self-handicapping behaviors help create the troubled employee. Increased absenteeism, drug/alcohol abuse, and low job performances are some of the characteristics of the troubled employee.

This workshop teaches managers and employees principles that change beliefs that empower the troubled employee to believe in their own power, abilities and skills to become a productive employee.

Time Management

Time management training most often begins with setting goals. These goals are recorded and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. Activities are then rated based on urgency and importance, priorities assigned, and deadlines set. This process results in a plan with a task list or calendar of activities. Routine and recurring tasks are often given less focus to free time to work on tasks that contribute to important goals.

This entire process is supported by a skill set that should include personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management. We’ll cover all this and more during this workshop.

Manager Management

With this course you will be able to provide the skills, guidance, and empowerment to your team of managers. They will then be better suited in leading and motivating their team and thus produce fantastic results. To be a successful manager means having a wide range of skills.

Manager Management takes a special type of leader. This workshop will expand your participant’s knowledge and provide a way for them to teach and lead new and experienced managers. As every manager knows that learning never stops, this workshop will have something for everyone. 

Stress Management

Positive and negative stress is a constant influence on all of our lives. The trick is to maximize the positive stress and to minimize the negative stress. This workshop will give participants a three-option method for addressing any stressful situation, as well as a toolbox of personal skills, including using routines, relaxation techniques, and a stress log system.

Employers are scrambling to find good employees with the right stuff.  They are looking at a more diverse pool of workers who are dependable, punctual and know what employers expect and can deliver.
