COURSE DESCRIPTION: Teaming Up for Success

We all depend on other people to get our work done. Understanding that others do not always value the same things, and are not motivated in the same way, helps us to “get into” their world and present ideas or solutions in a manner that is more likely to be well received by the other person. Once we understand these differences, and take this into account in our communications, we are equipped to influence others successfully, versus coming up against resistance, roadblocks, and misunderstandings.

Improve your workplace communications and understanding between your employees and teams through the time-tested course “Teaming Up for Success”. Over 300 individuals in the past 7 years have participated in this one day course, taught by Vicki Fenn 360.

*Based on RELATIONSHIP AWARENESS THEORY by Elias H. Porter, PhD. Influences include work of Erich Fromm and Carl Rogers.

Online Assessment: Each participant is required to complete an online profile assessment prior to participation in the workshop. From this they receive a link to their personalized report assessing their profile, and a chart which visually reflects how each type responds and is motivated.

The course facilitator will meet with small groups of participants 2 to 3 weeks prior to the workshop to provide a 30-45-minute overview, insure that individual profile results reflect participant experience, answer questions and present a group profile composite.
