  • Managing Diversity The D.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y Enneagram Participants learn about the important elements of an effective diversity policy and implementation by building the D.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. Model. The workshop activity is highly interactive and is simply constructed to make it very easy for employees, whether from the shop floor or an office desk, to learn, how they should respect, speak and act appropriately towards colleagues who have diverse cultural, religious, sexual, political beliefs or who may be of a different creed or colour or suffer from some form of disability. Emotional Intelligence: Good words and ugly words We examine how people manage their moods and the effects of negative emotions on others, the language used in the workplace and we differentiate between good words and ugly words and how people react to both. We also consider the effect of open and closed questions what this description of language means and how people respond to both types of questions. Different Strokes for Different Folks May we introduce you to a variety of different people, in caricature form, whom you will undoubtedly recognize. How do we recognize and deal with diverse cultures, characters and behaviours in different situations?

  • Business Competencies Consider that competencies may be described in three dimensions. Firstly, the Attitude Competencies which include Positive Attitude, Emotional Intelligence, Self Esteem etc. These portray a persons approach to their job. Secondly, the Application Competencies illustrate how the job is carried out and finally, the Achievement Competencies reflect how the job is completed. The development of individual skills begins with awareness and use of knowledge which progresses to competence which, when fully enhanced, develops into fully fledged skill. For the purposes of developing your skills in Sales and Client service - the two are inexorably linked and one does not happen without the other - we have constructed a Competency Suite, identifying eleven competencies. Two of the competencies in our Suite relate to Attitude, six refer to the Application Competencies and the remaining three focus on Achievement. S.T.A.R. Concept The measurement of behaviour in the Coaching process is crucial and we offer Participants the opportunity to understand and then use the S.T.A.R. concept. This will enable people to break down achievements into four constituent parts -Situation, Tasks, Actions, Results - and to use the results as a benchmark for continuous improvement. CommunicationPositive Attitude Results Orientation GUARD The S.T.A.R Express Interpersonal Influence Planning & Organisation Leadership Technical Knowledge Commercial Awareness Situation When did this occur? What were the circumstances? Where? Who else was involved? What were you trying to achieve? Task What tasks needed to be carried out to achieve the Result? What was the priority order of the tasks? Results What did you achieve? What other positive outcomes emerged? Sign Off Is your Line Manager happy to accept your evidence? Action What was it that you did you do or said that made the difference? How did you influence the Result?
  • People Management The Magic Stick & The 5 Cs The Magic Stick Activity revealed how the 5 Cs represent another potent example of the use of triggers (or anchors) to sustain learning. When you think of the letter C in future you may recall, more easily, what this represents and how this relates to you in your everyday job. Put another way, if you are able to consistently implement each of the C s there is little doubt that you will improve your overall performance considerably. When some of the Cs are being used you will make some progress when none of the Cs is being used you will make little or no progress. Therefore, the rate and quality of your progress will be influenced by the extent to which you embrace the 5 Cs Colour Blind Interaction and communication with customers is crucial. Colour Blind - a stimulating Group exercise - is used to demonstrate the importance of effective listening and we examine the basic principles of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to enhance communication skills Listening ..... to what people are saying (or not saying) hearing is not the same as listening listening to how people describe things Asking ...... questions rather than telling or assuming when making statements make sure that you stick to the facts not opinions offer an opinion but do not force your opinions on others Awareness ..... of your own behaviour and the impact you have on others put yourself in the shoes of others .i.e. your colleagues and your customers Interactingwith each other by observing,listening, speakingin proper proportionand timing Working together for a common purpose or benefit People doing the same thing at the same time for the same purpose working in synchronization. Freely exchangingideas and opinionsto find a solution or better way of working Maintaininga total focus and energy on the objective and what has to be achieve C1 Communication C2 Co-operation C4 Collaboration C5 Concentration C3 Co-ordination

This, of course, is an elusive skill for many to master especially given that many employees do not know or have really considered what motivates them. One thing is certain, whether they believe it or understand it everyone is motivated by something often more than one thing. I will give everything to a leader I can trust and who keeps promises I workbestwhen I have a routine and I know what to expect The job gives me confidence that I did not have before and I feel much better when I am confident The job is attractive because of the Salary and Bonuses it offers me The hours suit me. Its really great that I can walk to work and be able to pick up the kids from school The job provides for the lifestyle I desire and enhances my standing in the community I love the social side- the people I work with and customers I meet I respond positively when I know that I can achieve promotion in my job The working conditions and atmosphere are really important to me I am motivated when I am learning new things and gaining more knowledge I suppose I just need to belong to something and feel part of the team I like Challenges - this always stimulates me I know I need to feel secure to do well I just need the job to see me through to retirement in three years I need to feel valued and recognised for what I do. A Thank you means a lot to me I love getting and setting targets and beating them. I always want to be the best I can be I have the opportunity to develop my skills which really motivates me Of course, I can help you getwhatyou want and this is whatI need you to do getit. Do we have deal? Ok then - its a deal! Each of us is motivated by our needs. Our most basic needs are inborn, having evolved over tens of thousands of years. Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs helps to explain how these needs motivate us all. Maslow's Theory states that we must satisfy each need in turn, starting with the very basic, which deals with the most obvious needs for survival itself. Only when the lower order needs of physical and emotional well-being are satisfied are we concerned with the higher order needs of influence and personal development.

  • S.M.A.R.T.S. & S.W.O.T.S. S.M.A.R.T. Goals Specific: Clearly define your target or end result. Avoid being vague and instead think about the who, what, where, when, why and how of your goal. Measurable: Think about the numbers associated with your goal. How will you measure success? Action-oriented: Develop a plan of action in order to achieve your goal. Make it as specific as possible. Realistic: Make sure your goal is possible and reachable. You can always make additional goals once youve reached your initial result. Time-bound: Set a deadline to motivate yourself towards change. S.M.A.R.T. goals can help you on your path to successand so can HARD goals. H.A.R.D. Goals Heartfelt: Develop deep-seated and heartfelt attachments to your goals on levels that are intrinsic, personal and extrinsic. Use these connections to naturally increase the motivational power you put behind making your goals happen. Animated: Create goals that are so vividly alive in your mind that to not reach them would leave you wanting. Use visualization and imagery techniques to sear your goal firmly into your brain including perspective, size, color, shape, distinct parts, setting, background, lighting, emotions and movement. Required: Give procrastination (which kills far too many goals) the boot. Convince yourself and others of the absolute necessity of your goals and make the future payoffs of your goals appear far more satisfying than what you can get today. This will make your HARD Goals look a whole lot more attractive and ramp up your urgency to get going on them right now.
