Creating the Optimum Team
Target Audience: Any Intact Work Team
Length: Two Days Minimum to Five Days
Workshop Size: 12-18 (One facilitator); 18+ (Two facilitators)
 

Program Description:    
Increasingly today's teams need to function autonomously, managing themselves as they strive to perform with excellence. Participants will be exposed to the latest theories of group dynamics while strengthening their individual ability to function optimally as a team member and/or leader. Effective communication is at the core of any successful work team. Many of the skills to communicate effectively, however, are not fully understood nor utilized.


This intensive workshop will identify the skills necessary to develop and maintain effective and efficient cross-functional work teams. Participants will practice the rudimentary hands-on skills needed to explore and improve their personal impact and effect on others, and organizational processes.

 


This course will present the various techniques of effective communication, give participants the opportunity to both practice these techniques, and to get direct feedback on their personal communication style. The experiential nature of this workshop insures that learnings will be grounded to actual work situations.
Program Objectives:
  • Understand the characteristics of a high performing team;
  • Learn how to clarify team goals and objectives;
  • Explore ways that leadership emerges and that roles can be clarified and understood by all;
  • Explore concepts and practice skills in active listening, verbalizing understanding, and giving feedback;
  • Explore concepts and practice skills in inter-cultural communication, conflict management and negotiation;
  • Improve and expand personal influence and communication skills;
  • Learn to more objectively interpret personal interactions with colleagues having diverse views, attitudes, and interests;
  • Internalize the power of developing a consensus-based decision-making style.

Interpersonal Skills
Target Audience: Employees, Supervisors, and Managers
Length: One Day
Workshop Size: 12-18 (One Facilitator);   18+ (Two facilitators)

Program Description:

Interpersonal communication is at the core of any successful work team. Not confined to any single aspect of our lives, it pervades everything we do and say (as well as what we don't do and don't say). The impression we leave on people, the way we express ourselves, how we come across to others, how we listen, empathize, and sympathize, and the attitude behind our words and actions all contribute to the quality and success of our interaction with others.

This program provides a comprehensive exploration, understanding, and practice of the essentials of good communication and how they determine our effectiveness in the workplace.

Giving and Receiving Feedback


Target Audience:
Employees, Supervisors, and Managers
Length: One Day
Workshop Size: 12-18 (One facilitator); 18+ (Two Facilitators)
 

Program Description:
One of the most important skills influencing motivation, performance, and productivity in the workplace is providing honest, respectful, and timely feedback to co-workers. Despite the fact that all managers are expected to provide feedback, few are ever trained in how to do it. Employees are known to say that the only feedback they ever get is negative- the kind that is most often referred to as "constructive criticism". Seldom does anyone look forward to "receiving feedback". 

Often, it is simply avoided. Even a little feedback, however, is better than no feedback. There are ways to do it poorly, well, and superbly. This experiential workshop provides individuals, no matter what their position or experience level, the framework, techniques, and practice to improve the skill and art of giving and receiving feedback.
Program Objectives:
  • Identifying and exploring the types of feedback and their applications
  • Exploring conditions for effective feedback
  • Guidelines and ground rules for giving and receiving feedback
  • Understanding and overcoming barriers to feedback
  • Improving the skill of feedback
  • Strategies for effective feedback
