RELATIONSHIP BUILDING AT WORK

•  BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS ACROSS DIMENSIONS OF DIFFERENCE
Immense power lies in each relationship yet real dimensions of difference in the workplace can make building these relationships quite challenging. Some examples of dimensions of difference are race, gender, age, political party, sexual orientation, years of service, socioeconomic status and many more.

COMMUNICATION

•  PUBLIC SPEAKING TRAINING (ALL LEVELS)
We know. Speaking in front of people is hard. In fact, The National Institute of Mental Health reports that 74% of people report a serious fear of public speaking. If you're in that 74%, you're in the perfect place. We've taken participants from literally shaking and sweating to smiling and being themselves. Communicating ideas is and will always be a critical piece of leadership. We teach participants to do this by examining fear, recalling strengths, and finally learning our 7 steps to effective public speaking. This interactive training experience is offered at 3 levels: Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced.

COMMUNICATING THROUGH CONFLICT AT WORK
New managers. Turnover. Mergers. Acquisitions. Change in the workplace is unavoidable but conflict left unmanaged can have grave consequences on your team, your company and perhaps most notably...your customers. This interactive training experience feels more like a team retreat than anything else. We'll get specific, we'll get honest, we'll build each other back up, we'll create boundaries for a new normal and we'll do the hard work together.

We typically tailor this interactive training experience to specific student groups!
