Time Management: Get Organized for Peak Performance: 

Time is money, the saying goes, and lots of it gets lost in disorganization and disruption. We also deal with a constant barrage of technology, people, and tasks that can contribute to that disorganization. Many people find that they flit from one task to another, trying to get everything done. In this workshop, you will learn how to make the most of your time by getting a grip on your workflow and office space, using your planner effectively and delegating some of your work to others.

Communicating Effectively in the Workplace:

Have you ever wondered why it seems so difficult to talk with some people and so easy to talk with others? Can you recall an occasion where you met someone for the first time and immediately liked that person? Something about the individual made you feel comfortable. A major goal of this workshop is to help participants understand the impact that their communication skills have on other people. They will also explore how improving these skills can make it easier for them to get along in the workplace, and in life.

In addition to understanding financial metrics and reporting, we help the student understand and speak the language of Return On Investment and Business Operations.

This 2-day workshop will also provide training on the how-to of setting up and managing a specific budget for their area of responsibility.

Problem Solving & Decision Making: 

Despite all the natural decision making that goes on and the problem solving we do, some people are very uncomfortable with having to make decisions. You may know someone who has a hard time making decisions about what to eat, never mind the internal wrestling they go through in order to take on major decisions at work. The answer rests in our ability to identify options, research them, and then put things together in way that works. Having a process to work through can take the anxiety out of problem solving and make decisions easier. 

Problem Solving, Wednesday, November 20, 1:00-5:00pm, Mays Landing Campus
