Take the Pain Out of Remote Delegation

This one-day skill-building participant-centered workshop uses an interactive participatory approach and practical work examples to help participants: identify why supervisors should delegate: explore why they don’t; and learn how to delegate effectively. As a result of this workshop, the participants will be more comfortable making delegation decisions and will leave with a specific delegation plan to implement back on the job.

This program is unique in using a self-analysis module, in which the participants identify and attempt to address any assumptions or beliefs about themselves as individuals and as managers that can get in the way of their willingness to delegate.

Six Steps to Yes: When You Need Instant Influence in a Virtual World

Now that companies are operating virtually, it is more difficult to create trusting relationships.

This half-day virtual skill-building workshop uses interactive exercises to help the participants learn how to quickly create trusting relationships using six decision triggers. The participants will assess how and when the triggers have been used on them, and practice using the triggers to provide instant influence: reciprocity, commitment or consistency, social proof, liking, authority, and scarcity. These proven psychological principles are based on 25 years of research as reported in Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, by Robert B. Cialdini.

Manage Your Stress Before It Manages You or Your Staff!

In this half-day skill-building session, the participants will: distinguish between positive and negative stress; assess their stress reactions; identify stress management techniques that can help reduce stress; assume healthy control over the negative stressors in their lives; and plan how to supervise employees who have stress management problems.

Take a Healthy Look at Conflict

This one-day virtual skill-building workshop is designed to help individuals who want to improve their ability to manage conflict.

The participants will have an opportunity to apply this three-step approach and a win/win communication formula in simulated and real job conflict situations.
