Training Workshops

Immersive Learning for Solid Results!

Our workshops are an interactive and experiential group or team-based learning using real work-life scenarios. When we use relevant situations as subject matter, the training serves a valuable purpose of solving everyday issues; thus, engagement is high. The workshop provides a safe space for people to try new approaches and get immediate feedback from others within a learning environment's safety. Practice sets the learning. Using positive reinforcement, we keep fumbles light-hearted to make it fun.

While each workshop is specific to client needs, all are designed and facilitated from a coaching perspective. We hold fast to this rule because "true coaching" works, unlike any other type of professional development. When we can manage the way we think, we change our actions and behaviors accordingly. Although each person learns at a different speed, group learning offers real-time application and feedback. Sharing the experience with people in the same boat is encouraging and fun.

Since 2009, A Strategic Edge Coaching provides SDI Communication Skills Workshops for internal company teams and hosts external community events. Linda first discovered the SDI Relationship Awareness theory in a workshop during her residency with the Executive Coaching program at Royal Roads University. For the first time, she felt equipped to work in a group with ease. The team project Linda was a part of - proved it.

My Personal Experience with SDI® Relationship Building Tools - Case Study

Our assigned team was made up of six people with different personality types. Over the next seven months, we had to take turns assuming responsibility for completing numerous assignments and a final project worth 35% of our final marks.

The pressure to work well together was real.

As a result of knowing what motivates different personality types, we could complete our assignments without conflict and achieved an excellent product.

It was the best experience Linda had working as a team. Sold on the program, Linda became a facilitator shortly after that.

The (SDI Communication Skills) workshop was so much fun to learn with the people I work with. It was great to interact with people I hardly ever see, and I even got along with people I normally don't. It was really interesting and I can use what I learned at home too. We should do more workshops like this!

I loved the (SDI Communication Skills) workshop! I felt very welcome right away. I was given multiple tools to achieve success. The content was excellent and hit great points. I learned too much to even mention. I am very satisfied with the course. There is nothing I would change. It was a wonderful experience. The synergy was a highlight for me."
