XBL 0110 - Resolving Workplace Conflict

Today's business environment presents new and growing challenges forcing organizations to continually increase productivity, improve quality, shorten cycle time, and reduce costs. Survey after survey confirms that people are working longer and harder at jobs that are more complex and have a wider range of responsibilities.

The homogenous, single-function, co-located group is being replaced by dispersed, cross-functional teams with diverse areas of expertise. An unfortunate but natural by-product of these challenges is conflict. This course teaches leaders how to recognize the signs of escalating conflict and take appropriate action to minimize damage.

XBL 0603 - Get it Right: Find Work that You LOVE!

We all want to be happy but what are we doing to make that happen? You spend 40+ hours at work and if you are not happy there, it's heavily influencing the quality of your evenings and weekends. Come to this workshop if you want to be able to say, "I get to go to work" instead of "I have to go to work." In this workshop, you can learn about readily available tools to guide you to the right work for you. You will also learn how to make your brain chemistry work for you instead of against you as you begin your journey to the right work for you. This workshop will help you to develop a concrete plan for identifying what you want and exactly how to get it.

CEU Hours: .4

Contact Hours: 4

1.	Explain the connection between work, flow and happiness.

What is work? “It’s only work if you would rather be doing something else.” Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi  points out that Aristotle once argued that happiness is the only thing we seek for its own sake. Everything else we strive for, money, fame, power, clothing, entertainment, etc., are all sought because we believe they will bring us happiness. Csikszentmihalyi describes a concept he calls “flow.” This is the business person’s version of “being in the zone.” When we experience flow, we feel right with the world, work is easy and excellence comes to us. It is when we are in flow we can feel true happiness.

2.	Evaluate where you are right now. What is the source of discontent or the unrealized dream?

Are you happy in your work? What has distracted or side-tracked you from the work you might love? Has work always just been what you “HAVE” to do? Are you enjoying your work but wondering what comes next? Have you ever, even briefly, felt flow in your work? Have you once loved what you do but lost that sense of purpose, that sense of flow? What do life cycles have to do with your work and where are you on this map? What happens when you are in transition and how is that impacting your “flow?” You can have your excuses, or you can have what you want. The first challenge is to become aware of the excuses you are using and the second challenge is to see around them. 

3.	Describe the symbiotic relationship between self-talk and brain chemistry.

Make your brain work for you instead of against you. Neurotransmitters such as Dopamine, Oxitocyn, Serotonin and Endorphins start pumping when we are thinking about happy things and when we think negative thoughts, our supply of these critical chemicals becomes depleted. It turns out that what we think has a tremendous effect on how we feel and, the filters we use to see the world. The more negative things we say about ourselves, the more negative and dangerous the world appears. Conversely, thinking positively allows us to see when opportunities present themselves. Eleanor Roosevelt was much more right than she understood when she said, “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” How do you turn off the negative self-talk and turn on the more positive thinking that produces the DOSE chemicals that help you move towards what you want. The key is to learn to use some simple, time-proven strategies for turning on the self-talk and turning off the negative stream. [Several simple strategies that will get immediate results are presented.]

4.	Explain the importance of “Being Who You Are!”

It is said that inscribed in one of the courtyards of the ancient Greek Temple of Apollo at Delphi is the aphorism, “Know thyself.”  It is when we are true to who we are that greatness or excellence can come. When we are being who we are, we can stop rowing upstream and allow the current of life to help us, 

5.	Describe the tools readily available for discovering who you are.

Don’t know who you are? There are tools readily available to help you understand. Start with the Kolbe to identify your conative instincts. These conative instincts explain how you naturally approach achieving or accomplishing anything. Given your profile, you can then use the Kolbe tool to discover what careers will work best for you and what careers will be a challenge. Your conative instincts are develop themes and you can explore this with the Strengths 2.0. This can give you a deeper understanding why certain careers will work and others are harder. It will help you understand what elements will need to be in place for you to experience flow in your work. Finally, you can explore your preferred way of interacting with others. What works easily for you and what takes an effort? When you understand this and how this and your strengths have emerged from your conative instincts, you are now ready to find the work that will make “flow” possible for you. 

6.	Describe a process for getting to where you want to be. 

How do you get from here to there? You now know where you want to be, or at least you have a better idea of where you want to be, but how do you get there? It’s time to engage your brain differently. There is a process that can make DOSE work for you rather than against you. Use the GPS {Goal, Progress, Staying the Course) system to guide you to your better work. [A systematic, step-by-step process will be introduced].

XBL 0850 - Positively Smart

People set goals or at least have an idea in their heads about what it means to be successful. When they encounter setbacks or barriers, they frequently respond in one of two ways: they get discouraged and give up; or, they push themselves harder to achieve their goals or move towards their vision of success. In either case, the way they talk to themselves makes progress even less likely. This workshop will help participants understand how they are unintentionally getting in their own way and how their own brain can be working against them. The workshop will then provide participants with the tools to turn this situation around and use the natural brain processes to their advantage. Participants who regularly apply these strategies will quickly find that achieving their vision of success is easier and their quality of life is improved.

XBL 4056 - Managing Managers

Why a program about managing managers? What is it that's difficult? 1) Balancing daily tasks with long-term strategic thinking. If you have managers reporting to you, lots of their "stuff" ends up being "fires" for you to put out; 2) Your direct reports may manage a wide variety of functions, and it's difficult for you to create a sense of unity and cohesiveness for your entire group; 3) Ignore sticky situations such as dealing with difficult people. In fact, you may even back away. Managing managers takes courage, and in this course we give you a simple, but effective two-pronged approach focused on developing your business strategy while also improving your leadership skills.
