Assertiveness and Personal Confidence Building
Being assertive is one of the most important skills that you can have. In today’s competitive environment, you need to be assertive when delegating, chairing, negotiating, motivating, selling, leading and disagreeing. It is also important to recognise and understand that different cultural expectations and demands place limitations and restrictions on people. This programme will look at these multi-cultural implications. The trainer will aim to draw out best practices and to support and guide delegates in their aim to be more assertive.
Business Etiquette – Effective Work Habits
Success in any industry relies on relationships, whether with co-workers, clients, suppliers or investors. When you are well-mannered and considerate in dealing with others, you create engaging, productive and long term business relationships. This workshop will introduce delegates to business etiquette, as well as provide guidelines for the practice of business etiquette across different situations. They will explore all forms of business etiquette: communication, telephone, meeting, e-mail, voicemail and more. It is specifically designed for people who want to polish their skills and improve their professional image.
The rules for the workplace are gradually changing and we are judged completely differently to how we would have been twenty years ago. How intelligent you are, how much training you have had, or your qualifications, do not play the central role they once did. Employers are now concerned with how you handle yourselves and each other. Emotional Intelligence (EI) makes the difference between average performers and star performers. Exceptional employees appear to be those who have greater levels of self-awareness and who are not only able to manage themselves but are also able to understand and work effectively with others.
Time and Stress Management
Personal time management skills are essential for professional success in any workplace. Those able to successfully implement time management strategies are able to control their workload rather than spend each day in a frenzy of activity reacting to crisis after crisis – stress declines and personal productivity soars! These highly effective individuals are able to focus on the tasks with the greatest impact to them and their organisation. Our practical workshop will enable delegates to better manage their own time, becoming pro-active, avoid procrastination and enable them to motivate themselves thereby reducing levels of unhealthy stress.
Work Life Balance/h5>
The percentage of time we spend working is still on the rise, leaving free time restricted to a few short hours a week and life can seem like one long work day after another. We can spend well beyond our contracted hours at our jobs. Many of us never leave work at all. It is still in our heads when we are travelling home, when we are with our family or friends, and even when we are trying to get to sleep at night. We can continue with the way things are and hope it gets better, or do something about it. This workshop gives an opportunity to step back, take stock, and find ways to make changes.
