Communicating for Results: From Conflict to Cooperation
No one likes conflict and it’s not fun having to confront employees on their behavior. How do you let someone know they need to improve without having a constructive conversation escalate into workplace drama? You need to know what to say, when to say it, and how to say it to resolve potential conflict situations before people get too upset. Plus, teams are so much more effective when people are straight forward in their communication without harboring any resentments from past unresolved conflict. This workshop will have you walking out knowing that you have the tools to keep your cool when confronting others, or even when you’re being confronted by someone else. Oh, and by the way, you will now know what to say to the bully so they won’t bother you again. You will be able to tell it like it is but in a way that brings people together and not alienates or divides.

Which V are You? Managing Change Like a Volunteer Instead of a Victim or Vacationer
If your organization isn’t going through some type of change now, it means one of two things: You have already gone through a major change, or you are about to! When people are asked to change; they become a Victim, a Vacationer, or a Volunteer. If they choose to be a Victim or Vacationer, the chances of the change being successful are severely hampered. You will learn the effects of each V, and what outcome it can have on your team. This program is an interactive workshop, helping you move towards the mindset of a volunteer: resourceful, opportunistic, positive, helpful, open-minded, and vision-oriented. Sounds better than being bitter, resentful, helpless, and sabotaging! Before this workshop, plan on supplying Marilyn with your current vision – so the program can be about YOUR change. She will start with what the change means and what can be done to navigate the change more successfully.
Take away value and ROI: Quicker time to success when change is implemented, less stress during change, more open communication
