Business & Professional Development
  Executive Coaching Certification Program
  A past coaching client and CEO commented . . . “I was skeptical of being coached. After all, don’t we all think we’re
 perfect? But I quickly started to see that my changed behavior was welcomed by my executive team! Trust was being
 built, hidden agendas were disappearing and we were starting to depend on each other! We were able to air disagree-
 ments in an open, productive and trusting environment . . . and, yes, this DID positively affect the company’s bottom
                line because, over time, this new behavior trickles down throughout the organization!”

   We are proud to be a partner with the published experts from Sherpa Coaching. The Executive Coaching Certification Program
  will teach you how to facilitate improved business behavior in others, how to evaluate and attain your full potential and that of
 your clients, promote effective communication for developing increased individual and team productivity and an overall mastery
of the Sherpa coaching process - a proven and repeatable process - the ―operating system‖ for contemporary coaching! The Sherpa
      team and processes have been endorsed by Marshall Goldsmith, best-selling author and world-leading executive coach.
Help your employees or clients see how ―bad behavior‖ is getting in the way of their personal growth and discouraging productive
                                       relationships with colleagues and staff members.

                                     Project Management
                 A project manager has a lot to worry about—project cost management, creating a project charter,
        handling project management information, and developing project scope . . . all the while trying to stay on schedule!

Whether or not you hold the official title of project manager, if you are a manager, chances are you'll be called upon to lead some
sort of project at some time. This one-day workshop focuses on the practical skills, tool and techniques used to effectively manage
all phases of a project. You’ll spend 40% of the class time working on a practical case study in which you will work in small groups
to clarify objectives, identify deliverables, create a work breakdown structure, build a schedule, and determine the project’s critical
path. Individuals who are either managing a project or participating on a project team will gain skills to use immediately when back
at work.

The tools and principles learned in this workshop are based on the Project Management Institute’s A Guide to the Project Management
Body of Knowledge (4th Edition) and are applicable to projects of all sizes. All participants will receive access to a webpage containing
templates for all the tools (Charter, Work Plan, Change Log, risk Log, etc.) used in the program.

                         Developing Hiring Standards
                 Hiring is the beginning of everything. It has more to do with the ultimate outcome of performance
                                                 than anything else we do as leaders.

 There are two elements to hiring well… 1) understanding job requirements and 2) understanding the candidate’s talents and abili-
  ties. Good hiring is a system with standards that define what we’re looking for, and processes that evaluate and assess candidates’
              capabilities. In this one-day workshop, you’ll learn what to do before you start interviewing candidates!
                                      Topics include:
                                   Performing a job analysis
                                   Defining hiring standards
                              Designing effective hiring processes

       This workshop will help you build the framework to hire well and develop the skills needed for better hiring decisions.

Business & Professional Development
                   Human Relations & Leadership
  Great leaders find ways to connect with their people and help them fulfill their potential. Leaders rarely fail because of ineffective
   technical ability. They fail because of poor people skills. Research has shown that the majority of people who quit their job leave
                                             because of the way they are treated every day.
  FIFTY PERCENT OF EMPLOYEE JOB SATISFACTION IS DETERMINED BY THE OF RELATIONSHIP THEY HAVE WITH
                                      THEIR DIRECT SUPERVISOR!
  Leadership begins with developing a general understanding of people. It concentrates on improving human relations in a business
environment, breaking down personal barriers that inhibit constructive relationships between employees and leaders, and building the
                                   skills required for developing people and team performance.

   In the first day of this workshop, you’ll develop a practical understanding of motivation in the work place and its relationship to
                                                     performance. Topics include…

                                              The importance of constructive relationships
                                             The impact of job dissatisfaction on performance
                                            Motivational forces driving employee performance
                                                      Solving performance problems
                                        The power of reinforcing positive employee self perceptions
                                                           Inspiring employees

    Then, in day two, we turn our attention to developing a practical, realistic strategy for improving leadership effectiveness by
                                 focusing on the six skills of Human Relations and Leadership…

                                                          Earning employee trust
                                                   Improving staffing and hiring decisions
                                      Training and the importance of building employee competence
                                           Establishing clear expectations and aligning priorities
                                              Providing employees with systems of feedback
                                                                 Coaching

 This leadership training is designed to provide participants with the critical skills needed to enhance future success while impacting
       bottom-line results. You’ll learn practical "how-to" leadership skills that create high-performing individuals and teams.

                      Pronouncing English as a Second Language
     Modify Your Accent and Improve your Business, Professional and Social Speaking Skills
 If English is not your native language, your native accent may be getting in the way of clear communication. Your native speech
    patterns may make it difficult for colleagues, peers and clients to understand what you are saying. Our Accent Modification
                       Program can significantly improve your ability to communicate clearly and effectively.
Using the highly respected Compton P-ESL (Pronouncing English as a Second Language) program for foreign and regional accent
  modification, you will acquire the tools necessary to improve pronunciation at the sound, word and sentence level. Begin your
       personal analysis by reading an English passage which is then studied by our certified Accent Modification Specialist. A
   custom program tailored to your specific needs will be developed and implemented over a period of 8 training sessions, each
    lasting 2 hours. Learn to become aware of your pronunciation of English words, appropriate rhythm, pausing and linking to
―sound American‖, how to improve voice projection and rate of speech to enhance clarity, to name a few. You can expect at least
                                                a 50% change in your accent or dialect!

  Your homework will be to practice, practice, practice with the help of the Compton P-ESL materials. Programs are held at a
   location and time convenient for you and your instructor. Increase your speaking confidence and impress your listeners!

                          personal speech analysis.
