Words Matter [online training]
Communication is a skill that can be learned and improved, and it can make a huge difference in how we feel about our jobs and how others feel about us. This training was developed to help employees learn new skills and strengthen the skills they already possess.
Personal challenges occur in all our lives: divorce, family issues, illness, depression, stress, and sometimes serious mental illness. As a manager, you may find that employees with these concerns are distracted or openly distressed at work. This 1.5 hour training will provide information and in-class training on managing these difficult situations that impact the entire workgroup. Format: workshop (presentation and applied group work/discussion)
Other people can present you with conflicts or difficult behaviors that increase your stress level and affect work performance and job satisfaction. Whether it's customers or co-workers, your ability to respond effectively to challenging people and situations greatly impacts your success on the job. This workshop discusses types of difficult behaviors and effective response strategies. Participants will learn the principles of effective assertive communication through small group exercises.
Class description: Resilience is the ability to adapt well, bounce back, and recover from challenging life events and changes. This training focuses on building resiliency skills to better adapt in changing, stressful work environments. While resiliency skills covered in this presentation apply to all areas of life, this presentation focuses on being resilient at work.
