You'll find the top requested employee training and development topics. The content is timely and relevant. What are they?
Emotional Intelligence, Creative & Innovative Thinking, Time & Organizational Management, Collaboration & Communication for Team Productivity (Team building), Manager as Coach.
Below is a list of signature topics. I call my onsite workshops LAUNCH & Learns because we know that the learning just begins when you first hear the information; the training takes place when it's being purposefully applied - embedded into the everyday work experience.
Each onsite client has the option of a full or 1/2 day session along coupled with e-coaching follow ups specific to the topic delivered coupled with a mobile learning tag on. In some cases - with a tight budget - mobile training may be a great alternative choice.
Finally, an optional follow up individual or group coaching component is offered. The cost is determined based on the customized needs of the client.
Our philosophy? "Everyday is a training day", when employees are taught how to leverage their everyday work experience to learn and grow... and that part if free!

That understanding will serve to build team synergy, increase effective collaboration, nurture positive daily interaction of team members all to serve getting better results!

The Unspoken Keys to Communicating With Tact & Finesse
A fresh approach to teaching effective communication is by teaching that we are not necessarily speaking to a person but to their mind. An essential component of communicating effectively is understanding how the mind works and then with that knowledge using unique techniques that can be used to achieve better outcomes. Some of the techniques are taken from NLP (neuro linquistic programing). I call these specific techniques "3D Communication."
