These two separate PD events are held back to back
Session 1: 8:00 am – Time and Task Management
This “Get Organized” workshop was developed and honed through coaching hundreds of business people to be more effective with one of their most important commodities – time. Paradoxically, poor organizational habits are often encouraged by the same technology that was designed to make us more effective!
It is not uncommon for business people to spend most of their days swamped with e-mail, meeting requests and piles of paper. This typically results in a reduced ability to get work done, and is usually coupled with high levels of stress and even burnout. This workshop will develop superior organizational skills by providing a simple, yet effective workflow system that is integrated with standard tools and technology such as Microsoft Outlook.
Results You Can Expect
· Greater ability to get strategic work done
· Improved ability to manage information.
· Reduced stress.
· Key Focus Areas
· Self-analysis of current workflow
· Task prioritization
· To-do list and calendar planning
· Applying best practices with Outlook
Session 2: 10:15am – Conflict Resolution
The ability to resolve workplace conflict is a key differentiator in the ability of any group of individuals to function as a team. Research shows that high performing teams actually experience regular conflict, although conversations remain respectful and solution-orientated. In contrast, teams that lack a basis for conflict resolution are less likely to hold each other accountable and struggle to achieve high levels of performance.
Fortunately, conflict resolution skills can be readily learned by most people, and the tools can be used effectively even when the other party has no specific conflict resolution skills. This workshop focuses intensively on skills practice to ensure participants build a high level of confidence in the tools they have learned before leaving the room.
Results You Can Expect
· Stronger relationships with others
· Greater ability to positively influence people
· Improved ability to problem solve with others
· A more respectful workplace Key Focus Areas
· Brief Assessment of personal biases when approaching conflict
· Active listening skills
· Assertiveness without aggressiveness
· Collaborative problem solving
