Everyone has talents – they are part of each person’s DNA! How we use them and leverage them in the workplace can make the difference between living a meaningful, impact life or a life of tasks without engagement. This session conveys the basic philosophy of strengths based on leadership/engagement and the of StandOutTM and StrengthsFinderTM assessments. These assessments are used to help identify strengths and actions to help bring out the best each person has to offer in the workplace and in life!

Communication Skills
Much of life’s conflicts and misunderstandings between people can be traced back to lack of effective communication. This session provides an experiential learning experience on the key elements of listening, and how to communicate with others to get your goals met while maintaining the mutual relationship. The participants will leave with skills that can be practiced beyond the session, and grow their own communication skills to improve working relationships.

Mindfulness

This session explains the dynamics of stress and shares the practice of mindfulness to reduce stress. Participants will leave with a few ways to practice mindfulness.  
 
The Multi-generational Workplace

This session will provide general information and context about the four generations, and how they can show up in the workplace. With patience, knowledge, and understanding, the goal is have participants leave the session with ways to leverage the perspectives, and unique ideas of each person, no matter the generation.
