In dealing with people, it is the "smooth operator" that gets things done and gets promoted. This session teaches and positively empowers individuals with people reading skills. Participants will learn to maintain strong cooperative and respectful working relationships. They will learn skills to modify their daily communications with others to develop "likability". This is a very inspirational, fun session, studded with entertaining real life experiences to illustrate the concepts.

3. Ethical Lessons for Leaders- Psychological traps, Power, Honor
Almost every day we see some locally respected or famous person fall from grace and become disgraced by moral failure. Someone everybody thought was a "good person" is actually a moral reprobate. How do you know if you are being led down an unethical path? What are the warning signs to look out for? How do you cope with power over others? What is your personal code of honor? This workshop uses the amazing psychological interaction and true case study of CFO Arron Beam and CEO Richard Scrucci of Health South as its centerpiece. Small group interaction and discussion are part of this important topic and session.

4. How to Hire and Promote the Best People- Talent, Personality, Ethics
Everyone struggles with making the right personnel decision. There are tools available that can assist anyone in making the correct choice. In this workshop participants will take a natural talent and genetic skills test and a personality test and be given information on test interpretation. They will also do an activity on testing a person's work ethic. These three areas are critical in any personnel decisions and will give excellent data on a person's proper job fit. Get hard data with short psychological tests to help you make better decisions!

5. Self-Motivation, Inspiration, and Drive

6. Stress Reduction, Balance, and Healthy Living
This session focuses on specific techniques to help you stay physically healthy and mentally balanced by controlling your daily thoughts from the time you get up in the morning to the time you go to bed at night.

Some of this striking research from the Rochester Institute of Technology will be presented along with practical daily techniques. You will learn: the dangers of: mental chatter, fake news, keeping up with the Joneses syndrome, how to use thought substitution, the power of "I Am," affirmations, goal setting and vision boards.

7. Improving Work Ethic and Personal Responsibility

Other nationwide surveys have been conducted with the same results.

8. Natural Talent Testing for High Performance Teams
Do you know what your natural talents are? What about your coworkers, project team, or manager? Most people don't! In this session, participants will take a 109 question proprietary natural talent and genetic skills test to uncover: hidden abilities, reinforce confidence, and reveal genetically inherited skills. Natural talents are both mental and physical. In this session both types are discussed. Analysis will be done to determine task matching within a team environment.

By analyzing processes from start to finish, wasted time and effort are easily exposed. This session is an introduction to process/workflow mapping.

They will then compare each step in the process to an efficiency checklist to increase speed, eliminate waste, save money, reduce risk, improve quality, decide faster, etc. Finally, a "future state" map of the process will be discussed incorporating the improvements. Most organizations do not have their processes well documented anywhere, making learning what is actually going on difficult and increasing the risk of catastrophic mistakes. This session is extremely beneficial and has uncovered dramatic flaws in many organizational processes. Numerous case studies will be cited during this session.

20. Delivering Excellent Customer Service
Most customer service programs fail because the employees don't understand how to deliver excellent service. This session focuses on service through empowered, knowledgeable employees.

Are your trainers just reading power point slides to people and putting them to sleep? In our society today, fast transfer of knowledge is essential. Being able to organize information in a logical, teachable fashion is critical. People learn in different ways. A trainer must be receptive to this and make the training active, fun, and engaging in order for it to stick and be remembered. If methods are taught, they need to be demonstrated or illustrated.
