Energy
Creating a positive workplace culture
Workshop dates
4 September 2019

Why a workshop on energy? Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have staff with a positive and constructive mindset - working together more positively – encouraging and supporting each other when confronted with issues/ challenges? Sounds like a great goal, doesn’t it? Well this workshop will provide you with the concepts, methodologies and tools to achieve this goal.

How would you rate your workplace culture on the diagram above? Do you have staff who are difficult and negative - is the culture (how people operate when not been supervised) negative in nature? Then this workshop is for your business. However, if your culture is positive in nature, then your business should also do the workshop, so it continues to stay that way.

Communication
All life's a conversation
Workshop dates
4 September 2019

The way a team interacts with each other, and clients, is key to business success. If the team is not clear in their communication style, then this will have a direct impact on the business’s performance – as, you don’t want customer delays, due to poor communication. The team will be able to fine-tune their existing communication style and learn new techniques to communicate more effectively. These techniques include:

  • How to communicate clearly to avoid misunderstandings
  • The success formula to persuade and influence others
  • Handling tough situations well, and turning them into a win for everyone involved
  • The barriers to effective communication (assumptions, ambiguity, bias, emotion etc.)
  • Understanding how messages can be interpreted differently and how to mitigate accordingly
  • Collaborating as one business unit
  • Developing the habits of an effective communicator
Leadership
Let's develop our staff as they are the future
Workshop dates

Everyone in the team should aspire towards adopting leadership qualities – this means they inspire, motivate, mentor and empower those that they come in contact with on a regular basis.

This training will teach the core qualities of what makes a great leader and they will learn the skills and techniques to coach a successful team – now and into the future.

This will ensure everyone empowers each team member, by displaying these leadership qualities throughout the business.

This workshop has been designed to lead into the coaching program. The coaching program weaves the learnings from each workshop into the coaching methodologies that are covered in the coaching program.

For leaders who want to take their team on a journey from ‘average’ to excellence. This is not just a training program this is a change management program.

Adapting to the Future
Embracing the opportunities
Workshop dates
5 September 2019

The rate of change is accelerating and business disruption is occurring ever more frequently. It has been predicted that we are going to see more change in the next 15 years than we have in the past 150 years. Businesses that aren’t looking forward to the changes that lay ahead, cannot prepare and seize the opportunities that will be presented - “with change comes opportunity”.

People range in their appetite for change - depending upon personality type, stage of life, fears and trepidation's etc. What if we were better equipped to adjust our own mindset, and to assist/lead others to be more accepting and positive about innovating and adapting to the changes necessary?

This workshop will provide a balanced look at the approaching changes, and provide the concepts, methodologies and tools for examining and addressing change; leading and driving the changes in a proactive, positive and constructive manner. The future is exciting and it’s going to be a great place to travel to - especially if we create some innovative and relevant products or services!

"The workshop with our senior management and sales team instantly struck a chord with all staff. The team were able to relate to the importance of energy and mindset and the impact this can have on the overall culture and "feel" within the business and of course the customer. We then held another session including all operational and workshop staff and again it hit the mark with the whole team really connecting with the material. We found the concepts to be simple yet extremely powerful and have gone on with all staff involved in producing energy centric phrases as the core of a new culture program."
