Everybody aspires to be valued for their work and treated with respect. Company culture is best defined as “the way things get done around here.” Culture is created by both deliberate choices and unintended signals.

Participants self-assess sources of their personal power and motivations, and their skill at influencing others. We will explore communication and influence, with a novel focus on personal power vs. authoritative behaviors.

Today’s workplace is a multi-cultural, dynamic community of people representing five generations. Our workshops focus on the distinct issues your organization faces within its own mix.

Using the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™ as a foundation, we uniquely build a workshop that focuses on the specific needs of the group based on evidence-based, validated data.

Wherever two or more people come together, conflict may arise. This course will explore various methods to resolve conflict disputes of any size. Your participants will also gain skills in solution building and finding common ground.
