Communicate Positively even Under Stress

What response do you generate in other people when you are under stress?

Participants will discover their stress-management strategies and how these impact other people.  We define action-steps to replace stress-inducing behaviors with ways to invite collaboration and moving forward.

Manage the Unexpected Reactions

How do you handle an emotional reaction at work?

Many of us have been taught to ignore our feelings, especially in the office.  And yet, they surface:  an angry outburst, a sense of injustice and difficulty letting go, a personal issue which impacts performance…

This workshop presents tools to manage emotions (our own and those of others) and to reorient volatile exchanges into productive discussions.

Build Emotional Intelligence

Discover the influence of emotions on decision-making and how to garner them to build creativity, collaboration, and competitiveness.

Participants will share a success in their work, how it made them feel, and develop a plan to recreate the conditions for positive results.

Lead Effective and Motivating Meetings

Learn ways to keep the meeting productive and focused WHILE building a sense of belonging within your team.

We discover tools to prepare a productive meeting, to set and maintain a constructive tone and rhythm, to secure helpful contributions from all participants, to conclude with specific action steps, and to earnings for all.

Resolve Conflicts with Colleagues

Disagreeing constructively spurs creativity and innovation.

In this workshop we establish a culture of cooperation and transmit practical tools to create understanding, identify feasible and helpful options, and select a way to benefit from differences.

We practice this solution-finding process on a real-life user case proposed by a participant.

Give Feedback Constructively

A team member is underperforming and it’s your job to tell them.

How to give sensitive feedback in a way that BOTH respects the company’s need for performance AND the employees’ needs for respect?

Participants learn tools to build a culture of trust which invites innovation and creativity. We adapt the entrepreneurial mindset to challenges, transforming them into opportunities to learn fast and progress quickly.

Active Listening - How To

The way we listen impacts what people communicate with us. 

In this workshop we explore various listening and feedback styles and how these create open communication or build barriers.

Through activities and role plays, participants discover the perspectives of all communicating parties.  We learn and practice relationship-building tools which build engagement and contribution.

Calm Anger in Kids (For Parents & Kids)

When you or your child is overcome with emotion, our brain cannot reason; we just react emotionally.

During this workshop we help children develop their emotional vocabulary, create a way to self-soothe, and build their own emotions chart so that they can express their feelings when they are at a loss of words.

It’s an instructive time that feels like fun and sharing.

Build Skills Employers Seek (for Teens)

Help teens grow in positive communication and self-awareness.

Teens identify the life skills they want to develop and we compare them with the skills employers seek in new hires.

Through interactive activities we help teens realize the impact of their communication style on the people around them.

Discussion, laughter, and learning abound.
