Developing A Successful Mindset (A highly popular topic)

We very often live and work in very negative environments, be it external or in our heads. Feedback in the workplace is almost non existent. We can never give enough of ourselves it seems. Each individual has to rely on their own resilience and self motivation to continue to be a star performer and contributor to stay employed and to get ahead. Adding positivity to ones life through communication and behaviour can only enhance ones’ mood, self esteem and production.

This session gives you the communication skills and tools to:

  • heighten your positive communication
  • Identify thoughts that drag you down and lift you up
  • learn and use empowering phrases rather than limiting phrases
  • learn and add to your conversation positive and high energy words and ridding your vocabulary of low energy words
  • Learn how to Make Your Own Day

So you:

  • feel more confident
  • come across more confident
  • sound more optimistic and positive
  • believe what you say by walking your talk
  • start to inspire and help motivate others

Workplace Issues

Influencing Without Authority

Influencing Without Authority is a highly empowering and interactive workshop. Many non management employees believe that they are often powerless in their roles and though they may have a fair amount of responsibility, the amount of authority they possess is often limited. I will also address issues around bullying and harassment. This session will give you back your power.

Learning Objectives

  • Communication Tendencies
  • 5 kinds of power – getting your power back
  • Influencing colleagues, superiors and the school or department
  • Influencing tactics

Generational Differences in the Workplace

For the first time in the history of the industrialized world, there are 4 generations working side by side in the workplace. Each generation walks to its own beat and there are noticeable differences between each as it pertains to work ethics, values, expectations and lifestyle preferences. Knowing and understanding the workplace and lifestyle preferences of the Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers and Gen Yers, and upcoming Gen Zs can facilitate more effective interviewing and hiring practices. Knowing and accommodating their preferences can also lead to higher employee retention and productivity.

Inspiring and Managing Motivated Staff

It is impossible to motivate other people, so your job as a manager or supervisor is to inspire your employees to be motivated and to help them find their own self motivation and show them ways to use it. This very interactive session consists of:

  • Cultivating Empowered Employees
  • Positive communication
  • Attitudes toward authority
  • De-motivating actions
  • 5 kinds of power
  • Perks increase retention
  • Getting and giving feedback
  • Self motivation and engagement
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Understanding and rewarding the generational differences
