  • POLISH YOUR PEOPLE SKILLS: The Building Blocks to Career Success: In most jobs, your "people" skills have as much of an impact on your career success as your technical skills. Theodore Roosevelt once said, "The single most important ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with other people." He was so right! Most people succeed or fail in the workplace based on their ability to get along with others. In fact, a lack of "people" skills is the number one reason people lose their jobs.

  • How to Row Your Own Boat through the Storms of Change: When the clouds of unanticipated change begin to form in the workplace, we can expect rough seas ahead and wave after wave of resistance. How we handle those changes can significantly impact our success at work.
  • SELLING YOURSELF,The World's Oldest Business!: The fact is we all do a little selling every day. Most of may not realize it. If you've ever tried to persuade children to eat their vegetables, urge friends to volunteer for a committee, or convince your spouse that you really saved money because it was on sale, then you were selling something; your point of view. And if you've ever gone on a job interview, you were definitely in the business of pitching a product, YOU! It's called self-promotion.

The image you project goes a long way toward determining your professional and personal success.
  • PROJECTING PROFESSIONALISM: The image you project goes a long way toward determining your professional and personal success. Learn to convey a winning image through actions, appearance, protocol and nonverbal messages.
  • THE COMMUNICATION CONNECTION: Every time we communicate with another person, we have the opportunity to either build up or tear down that relationship. Therefore, every conversation we have, every interaction with another person is an influencing opportunity. Learn how to enhance your communication skills so that you can present your ideas and opinions effectively.
  • THE POWER OF NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION: No matter what you think you're saying, your words, gestures and tone of voice can actually communicate something entirely different. Our nonverbal signals are often our "honest signals" that tell others how we really feel. Learn how to recognize positive and negative "micromessages" that can impact employee performance.
  • TELEPHONE SKILLS and ETIQUETTE: Remember that every time you talk on the telephone, you are not just the voice of your company. You ARE the company! We all know how frustrating it is to deal with companies that greet us with indifference over the telephone. Being put on hold, transferred from one person to another and rudeness can be detrimental to a company's success. Most of the time, these problems can be eliminated with a little training.
  • THE MEDIA GAME...How to Play It and Win!: Learn how to deliver your message to the media the way you want to hear it, read it or see it. When dealing with the media, it's important to understand how the media works so that you can work in partnership for a win-win situation.
  • Tools to Turn Passive Listeners into Learners: This seminar focuses on the interactive training technique that can become a powerful new piece of equipment for every trainer's toolbox! Breathe new life into your presentations by blending lectures with activities.
  • MEETINGS THAT REALLY WORK!: Did you know that there are 11 million business meetings every day in the U.S.? Meeting experts have determined that approximately 53% of all the time spent in meetings is unproductive, worthless and of little consequence. However, the solution to bad meetings is not the elimination of them, but rather the transformation of them into better, more meaningful, engaging and relevant activities. Meetings are actually time savers, when properly utilized. That's why it's critical to an organization to learn and apply effective meeting skills.
