CORPORATE TRAINING

Corporate training in various topics are available to assist groups and teams in deepening their trust and collaboration so they may increase performance as well as experience their contribution and value in more meaningful ways. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

The Neuroscience of Leadership

Effective leaders are highly emotionally intelligent and have a deep understanding of personal and social competence. In this training session, participants will gain an understanding of the brain — how it works and the role it plays in decision-making, as well as the four skills for developing or increasing emotional intelligence. Participants will learn how to increase their social and personal competence and learn why doing so is vital to effective leadership.

Conflict Management

When navigated effectively, conflict can be a valuable source of deepening relationships, improving trust and learning more about a person or a situation. However, when conflict is poorly managed, or not managed at all, it can have devastating consequences to relationships, teams and even entire organizations. To manage conflict effectively requires an understanding of one’s self, an understanding of how the brain functions in conflict, communication and self-regulation techniques for managing conflict effectively, and a process for bringing these all together. Participants of this training session will gain a deeper understanding of conflict, the value conflict can bring to relationships and the skills necessary to reap those benefits.

This training session can be tailored for the following audiences:

  • Corporate environments
  • Nonprofit staff and / or executive directors
  • Families
  • Academic students
  • Academic faculty and staff
  • Academic social clubs (sororities, fraternities, etc.)
  • Law enforcement agencies
  • Community agencies

How to Have Difficult Conversations

Difficult conversations are a necessary element of life — in both personal and professional settings. Too often, difficult conversations are avoided because people lack the understanding, and therefore confidence, to navigate difficult conversations productively. In this training session, participants will learn a step-by-step approach to having tough conversations, including how to:

  • Structure a difficult conversation
  • Begin a conversation without putting anyone on the defense
  • Listen for unspoken messages
  • Remain calm in conflict
  • Remain solutions-focused

This training session can be tailored for the following audiences:

  • Corporate environments
  • Nonprofit staff and / or executive directors
  • Families
  • Academic students
  • Academic faculty and staff
  • Academic social clubs (sororities, fraternities, etc.)
  • Law enforcement agencies
  • Community agencies

Interest-Based Negotiation

Too often negotiations are perceived as a zero sum game — one person or group wins the other loses. Effective negotiations that result in high rates of compliance seek to achieve win-win outcomes — outcomes that address underlying issues rather than perceived positions. This training session offers a step-by-step approach to gaining mutually acceptable agreements in both personal and professional disputes. Participants will gain confidence in their negotiation skills and will gain an understanding of the value in preserving both the relationship and the deal.

Peace in the Workplace

Peace is not the absence of conflict. Conflict will, and should, exist in human relationships. Peace is addressing conflict through nonviolent methods. This training session provides participants with the skills to: clarify what they are observing when in conflict; identify the emotions they are feeling when in conflict; and understand what to ask of themselves and others when in conflict. This training session will help participants illuminate paths to peace in the workplace through compassionate communication, increased understanding, deepening connections and, ultimately, the communication skills to resolve conflict.

Managing Workplace Conflict

Utilizing The Friendly Style Profile™ conflict assessment tool, attendees will gain an understanding of their conflict style during periods of calm and storm. Armed with this information and key insights on emotional intelligence traits and how to foster them, participants will learn communication strategies and tactics for effectively managing day-to-day workplace conflicts as well as high stakes conflicts. Experiential activities will help participants hone their conflict management skills and practice communication techniques with coworkers of the same and differing conflict styles. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of who they are in conflict and techniques for leveraging their innate conflict style.

Building High-Performing Teams

High performing teams are led by high impact leaders — leaders with the skills to create a culture that fosters the highest potential in every team member. In this training, participants will learn the characteristics of high impact leaders and behaviors that inspire others to achieve the vision set forth for the team. This session includes practical insights and exercises for becoming an inspiring leader and tactics for remaining present to the organization’s mission and vision in high-pressure environments. Participants will gain actionable skills in leading high-performing teams.
