Immersive Learning for Solid Results!
Interactive and experiential group or team-based learning using real-work/business-life scenarios. This context is very effective for learning new approaches because of the availability of immediate feedback from others within the safety of a learning environment. Using positive reinforcement, we keep fumbles light-hearted.
While each type is unique and targeted according to client needs, all of our professional workshops are designed and facilitated from a coaching perspective. The reason we hold fast to this rule is because "true coaching" works unlike any other professional development program. When we are able to manage the way we think, we change our actions and behaviors accordingly.
At A Strategic Edge Coaching, we provide both internal and external workshops.
Internal workshops are great for strengthening corporate brand behaviors, and provide a space to work on company and industry specific challenges as subject matter.
When team members gather to solve company problems, engagement is strong and the results can be exponential. Collaboration, shared responsibility in the company's success is what makes companies excel.
ASEC offers the following corporate workshops listed below.
Communication Skills Training with SDI®
1. Build Communication Skills, Strength Deployment Inventory® - Half-day
It's a fact that a person who understands people well, and knows how to motivate or inspire others to do what he/she wants, will be productive and successful in his/her endeavors. For over 40 years, Personal Strengths™ has helped people make business and personal relationships more productive.
The TSDI® (Total Strength Deployment Inventory) is a proven memorable tool that helps people understand each other at a much deeper level, increase their acceptance of one another; and in turn, prevent conflict. It is the flagship assessment of a suite of tools based on Relationship Awareness™ — a learning model for effectively and accurately understanding the motive behind behavior. When people recognize the unique motivation of themselves and others, they greatly enhance their ability to communicate more effectively AND handle conflict more productively.
Prior to the workshop, participants are asked to complete a TSDI® online survey.
At the workshop, participants will receive their results in full colour, and as a reference to learning.
At the core of this workshop is the Total Strengths Deployment Inventory ®, a survey of how you respond when times are good, and when you are under stress. What you will learn:
1) Discover how your own motivation and values influence your behavior
2) Gain a better understanding of the motivation and behavior of others
3) Identify your personal response to conflict - and make more effective choices as a result
4) Learn ways to anticipate, prevent and manage conflict situations in your life
5) Capture relationship-building techniques that you will be able to apply immediately.
6) The language is easy to use, so participants remember their results. Results that are memorable are more easily applied, and the learning is sustainable over the long term.
2. Full Day Workshop, Build Communication & Team Effectiveness
Armed with enhanced communication skills from the first session, employees collaborate on solving a troublesome corporate issue together in the afternoon.
The facilitator guides the process and will provide senior management with a summary of findings and key takeaways for further development and consideration.
The full day platform is highly recommended for putting application to good use (learning retention), solving real problems and for employee buy-in.
3. Full Day Workshop, Build Better Relationships with SDI 2.0®
This workshop expands previous learning to include another survey called the Portrait of Personal Strengths®.
Greater self awareness of our strengths and overdone strengths allows us to understand our communication pitfalls, and make better choices when communicating with people whom have very different motivational values than ourselves. We learn how to borrow ‘value relating’ styles which would best serve the task at hand, as opposed to trying ‘imposed’ and uncomfortable ‘masked ‘relating behaviors, which are rarely effective.
When we prevent conflict, we save time/money, and achieve more desirable outcomes. In essence, we become more effective.
This a full day workshop which will allow continued work on solving predetermined corporate issues, using Strength Management to improve the collaboration amongst team members.
This advanced training is most suitable for developing Leadership and Self-Mastery with the leadership circle.
Customer Service That Sells!
Participants will acquire a 5 step holistic Sales Process, which ensures that customer needs are fully uncovered and products/services matched according to relevant business solutions. The formula is proven effective, and customers appreciate the excellent service!
The program is an excellent investment towards developing a top-level service mindset for all employees which improves individual sales results (and thereby morale); customer satisfaction (which strengthens customer loyalty); and improves overall company results.
In this full 1 or 2 day workshop, employees will practice the Strategic 5 Steps Sales Process using real work situations as subject matter, so that they are ready for action upon their return.
This workshop is most effective when training is provided and accountability is expected from every department across the organization.
It will change the way you do business, and has the potential to create exponential results!
Return on Investment (ROI)
A Strategic Edge Coaching is pleased to assist with ROI calculations for companies that invest in their people.
Objectives are defined at the outset using SMART parameters (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-bound), and determined after a pre-defined agreed period of time.
Workshop feedback from participants will be provided to sponsoring organization within 14 days.
Organizations that encourage using the TSDI language at work often notice desirable changes in work relationships to include: reduction of conflict situations amongst staff &/or stakeholders; improvement in staff engagement and morale; plus increased productivity thereby improving the bottom line.
These workshops are particularly beneficial for new teams and organizations; preparing for the success of an important project or undergoing major corporate change.
The measurement for change over longer terms of reference is available to companies once concrete objectives have been agreed upon prior to beginning corporate engagement.
External workshops provide excellent learning opportunities for individuals who want to improve skills, but need willing participants to explore and test new approaches with. We focus on building practical and necessary skills that are needed in business and life. Our subject matter is business/work related, but is easily applied towards personal situations.
