Leadership
 
Leadership is no longer merely ‘leading from the front’. It is about influencing people for the better, whatever level one is at.
 
It is also the process of impacting people while operating to meet organisational requirements, as well as improving the organisation through change
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • To help the team understand various leadership approaches

  • To help individuals understand the need for a 'situational fit'

  • To define and clarify personal as well as team values

  • To enhance self-worth of each individual

  • To enable understanding in patterns of behaviour - both functional and dysfunctional aspects

  • To explore ‘dormant’ potential in individuals


  • To aid individuals in being effective leaders
 
 
 
 
 
From Larvae to Butterfly
 
When organisations recruit fresh graduates, they need to be highly people-orientated. They need to have the ability to involve, interact with and influence these new prospects. Similarly, graduates who are new to the industry come with expectations - some reasonable and others unreasonable. They often need to be guided in how to manage their expectations.
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • To aid organisations in adjusting to new recruits - via regular interaction and involvement across activities

  • To help new graduates understand the issues surrounding the transition from student-life to the working life

  • To raise awareness of organisational realities

  • Guiding new recruits to set ambitious but realistic goals for growth within the organisation

  • To define and clarify personal as well as organisational values

 
 
 
 
I Can Make a Difference
 
When individuals are convinced that they can make a difference, they will move from being ‘self-centered’ to ‘relationship centric’, and from listlessness to dynamism. Unless an individual feels a sense of personal triumph in his/her working environment, he/she rarely invests.

Understanding the ‘self’ and learning how to manage the ‘self’ play a key role in raising self-esteem and an overall re-shaping of individual focus.

Within an organisational context, 'personal effectiveness' involves gaining mastery over oneself in the workplace.
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • Understanding the ‘self’

  • Value clarification

  • To enhance self-esteem of individuals

  • To understand patterns of behaviour within the team - both functional and dysfunctional aspects


  • Understanding and interpreting ‘ownership and responsibility’ within the workplace

  • To explore dormant potential within individuals

  • To encourage the setting of challenging goals, achieving them and building self-confidence


 
 
 
 
 
 
Emotional Intelligence
 
Aligning the individual with the organisation is a task for both managers and their subordinates.

Managers who deliver feedback, coach, counsel and encourage performance need to be trained to handle subordinates with sensitivity. They need to set aside their own limitations in order to resolve internal conflict. Equally, subordinates need to be made aware of the emotional dynamics within the team.
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • To increase individual awareness of emotion in oneself and in others

  • To examine the effects of interactive emotions within the team

  • Training employees to differentiate and manage emotions within the workplace

  • Encouraging the development of good interpersonal relationship with peers, subordinates and superiors


 
 
 
 
 
 
Communication Effectiveness
 
Most problems encountered within the organisation are due to ineffective communication. Effective communication means clarifying intention, listening, and responding appropriately. It is the capability of an employee to understand others and also to be understood. For a team to be fully functional, the right kind of communication is key.
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • To map the patterns of communication within the team

  • To help team members become aware of ‘blocks’

  • To train team members to differentiate between ‘thoughts’ and ‘feelings’

  • Enable team members to take responsibility for effective communication


  • To build competencies for the delivery of effective communication


 
 
 
 
 
Team Building
 
Teams have become an important element in ensuring optimal organisational performance. It is important, therefore, for employees to understand the benefits of teamwork and recognise that winning is only possible when there is a joint effort.
 
Key objectives of the programme:
 
  • Personal Integration and Team Integration

  • To train employees to develop a team approach to problem-solving

  • Alignment of the team in accordance with organisation values

  • Understanding the importance of trust, inter-dependence and team work


  • Enable the recognition of a fully functioning team

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Customer Sensitivity and Service Skills
 
A 2-day experiential workshop largely designed to help `Sales & Service Personnel` reorient and refine their approach to dealing with customers, generate positivity and energy.
