  • Bridging the Generation Gap 

Clashes among generations are common and generally arise from conflicts in attitudes and preferences for work, management and leadership, communication and motivation. Now with 4 generations in the workplace, Bridging the Generation Gap3 hour workshop helps you understand where each generation “comes from” and how you can use generational differences to develop greater synergy, creativity and productivity in the workplace.

  •  Leading Multi-generation Teams

Right now, there are four generations in the workplace and the fifth generation is just around the corner.  Never before have managers needed to juggle such an age-diverse staff.  Advanced technologies have increased life spans, and fragile economies have required people to work longer.  Just as gender and ethnic diversity can lead to conflict and miscommunication, so can generational diversity.  On the other hand, if managed and led properly, a multi-generational team can develop greater creativity and productivity.  With this 3 hour workshop, you will gain the skills to lead more cohesive, effective teams and deliver quality customer service to your multi-generational customers.

  • Writing and Managing E-mail

This workshop helps you write e-mails that are promptly read and responded to as well as provides a system to get control of your in-box. Participants will get tools to understand what e-mail is and isn’t, learn how to write subject lines that get the e-mail opened, organize e-mails for quick response, respect e-mail etiquette, make requests appropriately, control tone, use a process to get completed e-mails out of their in-box easily and quickly, create rules to control incoming e-mails and follow up with pending e-mails

  • Creating a Positive Customer Service Experience 

What a new customer spends with your company is worth less than their loyalty to you. Statistics show that loyal customers are worth 10 times as much as their first purchase! Customer loyalty means they not only buy more of your products and services, they tell their friends! Word-of-mouth recommendations and referrals are gold for a business. This workshop helps you understand customer CARE – courtesy, accountability, respect and empathy.  Customer CARE generates customer loyalty, which can serve your company for years. Never take customers for granted! Make sure every point of customer contact delivers customer CARE by having your employees attend this workshop.

  •  Getting Results Through Influence and Persuasion

The ability to influence others is a key factor in how successful you are. Influential people change how people think and what they do by forging an emotional connection with them. But the most influential people don’t change behavior; they also shift mindset. For example, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak changed our mindset about the roles of personal computing in our lives, and George Lucas and Steven Spielberg shifted our mindset about what film could do.

This course gives you tools to gain more influence and be more persuasive on and off the job. It includes a formula for cultivating influence and persuasion, helps you motivate an audience, and improves your ability to communicate persuasively!

Transform the way you work and immediately increase your productivity.
