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 primary 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 life.

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 one-day 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.

Workplace Spanish for Supervisors:

The rapid growth of the Hispanic population & workforce has created critical communication challenges for businesses. These language barriers often result in accidents, quality mistakes and poor service where it matters most in the workplace. Workplace Spanish is designed to cut through language barriers by enabling supervisors to communicate effectively, with Spanish-speaking co-workers and customers. No grammar, no language rules, no prior Spanish experience necessary for this four week, 12-hour workshop.

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 take on significant decisions at work. The answer rests in our ability to identify options, research them, and then put things together in a way that works. Having a process to work through can take the anxiety out of problem solving and make decisions easier.
