Speaker: Roger Wolkoff, a motivational speaker from All About Authenticity, will deliver two exceptional programs.
7:30 am – 8:00 am Registration and Breakfast
8:00 am – 12:00 pm Part I: Planning for Emotional Intelligence
We all feel emotion. It’s what we do after we experience them that defines us. You will learn about and experience self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management from a former project manager and expert in the field. Emotional intelligence is a critical factor in moving you, your teams, and your life forward.
Demonstrate what emotional intelligence is and why it is essential to practice in the workplace; express the value emotional intelligence plays in work and team performance.
Identify the four areas (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management) and practice strategies within each area to increase your emotional intelligence.
Identify “my one thing” or one takeaway that each participant will practice after the program
12:00 pm – 12:30 pm Lunch
12:30 pm – 4:30 pm Part II: Appreciation Intelligence: The New AI
Loyalty and appreciation affect your bottom line and your workplace culture. Don’t think so? Think again! Customers, clients, and teammates want recognition from you. Do you deliver? Learn how to recognize how others prefer to be appreciated with words, actions, service, or gifts. You have a preference for how you like to be shown appreciation, and so do the people you work with. Do you think they’re the same?
Pair and share reflection – participants discuss ways they prefer to be appreciated and share with the larger group.
Brainstorm appreciation ideas – for each of the four (4) languages, we create a list on a chart in the front of the room. Participants are encouraged to take pictures of the ideas or take notes.
Understand why being affirmed, validated, and appreciated are necessary to gain maximum productivity from your team.
Identify which of the four appreciation languages (words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, tangible gifts) resonates with you and how to be aware of other’s preferences.
Increase team performance, reduce turnover, get to work outcomes faster
This professional development day will help you, and your high-performing team, communicate with clarity, conviction, and positive intent to help influence the successful implementation of your projects.
Group discounts for four (4) or more attendees from the same company or organization are available. Please contact us for more information.
