Dimensions of Coaching — $695

Runtime: 23 Minutes

Coaching is one of the most powerful tools available for helping employees reach business and professional development goals. However, most companies rely solely on a manager-driven approach, and many managers lack the skills to develop their staff. As a result, a company’s greatest resource — its employees — remains underutilized and undeveloped. Dimensions of Coaching is a 1-hour or 2 1/2-hour workshop on how to help employees be more productive and effective. Key concepts covered in the workshops include: adapting your coaching style to the learner’s personality and needs; the difference between directive and nondirective coaching, programmatic and circumstantial coaching, specific and holistic coaching styles; and the four-step coaching process — a proven, simple approach. The methods and tactics taught in Dimensions of Coaching are based on considerable empirical research by Dr. Terry Bacon, a leader in the field of management and personal development www.terrybacon.com.

Five Star Teamwork — $695

Runtime: 17 Minutes

This program features the remarkable team at the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City. Long regarded as a premier destination and widely thought of as one of the best restaurants in the world, the Four Seasons team lived by a set of principles that can be implemented in any working environment. Opening in 1959, the team at the Four Seasons Restaurant in the Seagram Building in NYC attracted not only the “who’s who” from around the world, but the pilgrim tourist as well for decades. In addition to the outstanding cuisine, its hallmark feature was its impeccable service and undying attention to detail. This accomplishment required that the management and team employ a core set of values to live by each day, every day. The five principles are straightforward, but when lived day-to-day, year-to-year, decade-to-decade, they are the fundamental to long-term success for any endeavor. The principles are: commitment to each other, commitment to the mission, commitment to the customer, commitment to resolving conflict and commitment to the details.

In July of 2016, the restaurant lost its lease in the Seagram Building and will be reopening a few blocks away in 2017.

The Five Star Teamwork DVD program includes a comprehensive leader’s guide and PowerPoint Presentation for a one-hour session and a four-hour session and one set of reproducible participant handouts on a CD.

Effective People Skills

Runtime: 50 Minutes in 8 Segments

Wonder what’s the number one reason an employee fails at your firm?

Research shows that the most common cause of personal and professional failure is not lack of intelligence or technical ability, but rather ineffective personal skills. When you consider that the average cost of replacing an employee is $75,000 – and this doesn’t include the individual’s effect on your team’s morale, performance, and productivity – it’s obvious that teaching your workforce how to resolve conflicts in a positive manner is in everyone’s best interest.

Effective People Skills is a suite of eight 1-hour workshops that cover every conceivable type of conflict that occurs in your workplace, as well as related topics. Most important, it teaches your employees essential skills for resolving conflicts, enhancing collaboration and productivity, and infusing a spirit of teamwork and respect at your company.

Each workshop features an information-rich participant’s workbook and an engaging video that dramatizes a particular type of conflict and models an ideal response. The eight modules can be used individually or together, enabling you to tailor content to the unique needs of your organization.
