EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TRAINING — The learnable skills of emotional intelligence are central to personal and professional success. We deliver programs that integrate solid business logic with latest neuroscience so your people become better leaders, build a stronger workplace, accelerate positive change, strengthen customer loyalty and increase performance by developing solid, collaborative teams. Emotional Intelligence is a critical ingredient for success. We get people engaged head, heart, and hands.

CONFLICT RESOLUTION — A common issue facing many leaders is workplace conflict. This is a time-consuming and costly problem that can have a severe impact on productivity and the bottom line. Many top leaders struggle with confronting issues that arise from employee relationships as the result of clashing personalities, miscommunication, perceived backbiting, negative politics or a perception of hidden agendas. These issues can result in behaviors such as gossip, avoidance, verbal abuse, passive/aggressive communication, and hostility. This can in turn lead to a lack of productivity, a focus on problems rather than solutions, and a decrease in creativity and innovation.  Nicole will show you how to prevent these issues and resolve them once they take hold.

PEER TO PEER ACCOUNTABILITY — An essential component of empowerment-based management models, peer to peer-to-peer accountability is the willingness of team members to call their peers out on performance or behaviors that might hurt the overall team, enhancing peer interaction and problem solving. Members of great teams overcome the discomfort of having difficult conversations with each other. Peer pressure, as politically incorrect as it might sound, is the most effective and efficient means of accountability. Sometimes dominant leaders naturally create an “accountability vacuum” within the team, leaving themselves as the only source of discipline. This makes for long lines outside the boss’s office and keeps members from accomplishing important tasks. Learn how to incorporate this model into your existing infrastructure.
