TRUE COLORS WORKSHOP: THE 'DARK SIDE' - Dismantle Discord & Disputes!

Creating a culture of civility and respect among employees is critical for a business success. Working with different personalities, opinions, backgrounds, and values is a challenge in any environment.

When people are working together, personalities can and will clash. Since no one is an island, working together as a team is incredibly important for every employee and for your organization. Promote.

-Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all had perfect lives??  I mean no financial issues, flawless communication and rock-solid relationships with our coworkers, children, and partners??  Wouldn’t it be nice if our work lives and family lives were completely separate and didn’t have an impact on each other??  Unfortunately that isn’t realistic! Personality Profiling Systems are great at showing one’s strengths and weaknesses, but they lack in providing ‘everyday, realistic ‘tools’ to improve our relaltionships when life isn’t perfect!  The ‘Dark Side of Colors’ is the introduction to Civility in the Workplace.  It gives participants the ‘tools’ to make immediate and impactful changes to improve and make a difference in our ‘imperfect’ everyday lives; work, family, relationships.

There are certain identifiable behaviours that are exhibited when a person is stressed, frustrated, anxious, or what we call ‘out of esteem’.  With our ‘Dark Side’… Dismantle Disputes & Discord course, participants can learn to recognize these behaviours in themselves and make efforts to ‘improve’ or ‘modify’ their reactions and actions so that they ‘lessen’ the negative impact on those around them.

-Participants also learn to recognize these behaviours in others, adding more tolerance and empathy to the situation which leads to an overall reduction in conflict, disputes and discord in the workplace and/or at home. Either way there is a significant and immediate improvement in their relationships which means, improved performance at work!

-Leaders can spend less time worrying about internal conflict, disputes and discord in the workplace.  Leaders can spend less time worrying and dealing with ‘personnel’ issues, and more time on improving the business!

This is a Civility in the Workplace course and it is about creating and maintaining better relationships. It’s about understanding, communicating and working more effectively with peers and colleagues in a mutually beneficial way.  Employees who understand the positive aspects of workplace behaviour and politics and stay away from the negative are better team members, better producers, more successful, and help create an improved culture within your organization.

-Participants learn how to minimize personnel issues by joining us for this potentially life changing  workshop. A healthy workplace free from toxic and negative workplace behaviours and politics will reduce stress, while improving focus, energy and collaboration. Increased productivity and higher retention levels and happier people!

MANAGER MASTERY - Take Management Skills from Adquate to Exceptional!

-Managing people is a difficult job! Too often people are promoted to management positions without sufficient training and development, which can cause misunderstanding, confusion and diminished esteem. You can now set them up for success with our Manager Effectiveness course.

-Whether they’re new managers or those looking to expand their range of abilities, participants will learn how to guide, empower, engage, motivate and manage a team.

-They will gain the knowledge, skill set and confidence required to make better decisions when working with others, being better equipped to handle conflict, change and difficult conversations.

-They will have a clearer view of their role, while improving their effectiveness and performance with greater results for the company.

CREATE CLEAR COMMUNICATION! - And Create a Stronger Organizational Culture!

-Every day of our lives we are communicating to and with others.

-Whether it’s a boardroom speech, talking to clients or coworkers, or normal conversation with one another, understanding the different methods of communication and how to make the most of each of them can dramatically improve relationships, strengthen confidence, and reduce stress.

-By far, the biggest issue inside of organizations is the way people communicate with one another. The strategies we present in this workshop can help make you and your employees more effective communicators, resulting in improved productivity, reduction in errors and fewer misunderstandings.

-You will learn how being authentic and transparent while having ‘real’ conversations in the workplace can dramatically increase morale, teamwork, operations and culture.
