My BEST Communication
(Ron Schlitt)

Purpose: To improve communication skills and become aware of personal styles as well as the styles of others you work with.

Here is an easy-to-follow instrument that helps individuals understand the impact of their style in the communication process. Most individuals are unaware of how his/her personality is expressed when communicating with others. Four main styles are identified and clarified with suggestions and strategies for personal development.

The workshop will begin with an 18-item instrument that can be quickly completed, scored, and interpreted during the training session. My BEST Communication Style is a stimulating, interactive lecture that will increase understanding amongst co-workers and assist in building healthy communication skills for your team.

Strengths Based Leadership
(Ron Schlitt)

Strengths Based Leadership will give a new awareness of your strengths as a leader, and give new suggestions for investing in leadership-focused development. Strengths Based Leadership will also give specific suggestions for meeting the basic needs of those who follow you in leadership. The path to strengths based leadership starts with a deep understanding of the strengths you bring to the table and of the strengths of those you are leading.

  1. The most effective leaders are always investing in strengths. By focusing on the strength of employees, and investing in strengths development, employee engagement increased 73%.
  2. The most effective leaders surround themselves with the right people and then maximize their team. While the best leaders are not well rounded, the best teams are. Top performing teams have equal representation of themes within each of the four Strengths domains.
  3. The most effective leaders understand their followers’ needs. People follow leaders for very specific reasons, and followers can describe exactly what they need from their leaders with remarkable clarity.

Stress, Anxiety, and High Performance
(Barb Egan)

Stress and anxiety are like holding a glass of water in your outstretched arm. Think about them for a short time and everything is fine. Think about them for a longer period of time and they begin to feel uncomfortable. And if you think about them all of the time, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything. Imagine how this can impact how you feel, how you perform. Learn practical strategies from a former professional athlete and coach, and specialist in performance anxiety on how to overcome these common obstacles.
