Maximize your productivity and quickly reach your goals
In an age where information moves quickly and multi-tasking is a business expectation, it takes special skills to manage your priorities and ensure lasting success.
Lead with agility and integrity
Organizations demand a high degree of agility, adaptiveness and integrity from their leaders. In this powerful two-day seminar, you will develop vital leadership competencies needed to communicate your organization’s vision, make effective decisions with the support of others and nurture a positive performance of those around you. This program is highly rated by aspiring leaders looking for a consistent approach and by those already in leadership positions wishing to stay on the edge of new developments.
Write clear, concise and successful communications
Every professional position requires some form of writing, whether it is an elaborate report or the simplest emails. How you write is just as important as what you write, and key ideas can become easily lost in poor communication—affecting the impact of your message and your audience’s response.
In this course, you will learn to improve the professionalism and quality of your writing, pick up key written skills, and discover ways to ensure your written communications continuously stand out from the crowd.
Enhance your abilities as a coach and trusted mentor
The role of a coach or mentor can have a significant positive impact on people’s lives—at work, in an association or team, and even amongst family and friends. In fact, a great coach/mentor can help improve a company’s morale and environment by inspiring employees looking for advice and guidance.
This program will give you the tools you need to grow from a good mentor into a great one. Become an invaluable resource for your company as well as all the individuals you help.
Winning tools, processes and practices for market success
Strengthen your digital presence for a greater impact
Social media can be a key way to target and communicate with specific client segments, but not everyone knows how to use this powerful media effectively.
This program will introduce you to current trends in social media, and teach you how to leverage these to create an impactful and genuine online presence, generate leads, and build effective relationships with customers.
Build effective relationships for work productivity
How well we deal with our emotions governs how well we manage ourselves and our relationships. Emotional Intelligence (EI) - our ability to identify, use and manage emotions well – is at the heart of leadership, productivity, wellbeing and effective collaboration in the workplace and everyday life. Research clearly shows that the most effective and productive people are those with high Emotional Intelligence.
Elevate your power and impact to build cooperation and get results
Do you have a clear goal in mind, but seek the right tools and techniques to persuade others, gain buy-in and achieve your goal in a non-aggressive and ethical way? This high-energy seminar offers you practical approaches to gain support for your ideas, network with those around you and initiate positive change up, down and across your organization.
