 Live Webinar Topic Descriptions

Applied EQ - Emotional Intelligence at Work
Applied EQ: Emotional Intelligence at Work - Emotional intelligence is a general set of skills that can be applied to anyone and any environment. Understanding EQ and mastering the skills involving emotional intelligence will greatly help you succeed in any role. It can also help you to connect with your feelings, turn intention into action, and make informed decisions about what matters most to you.

The Challenge of Change
In this course, participants will learn about why we struggle with change despite our best intentions as well as a researched based technique for successfully accomplishing change in our complex and demanding world.

Giving & Receiving Feedback
This webinar is designed to assist managers and supervisors with giving feedback effectively and receiving feedback constructively to promote strong work relationships and encourage high performing teams.

Goal Planning
In order to optimize progress with the goals you set, it is important to align the goal with your personal interests and values and to have a specific plan to make your goal-directed behavior become habit. In this webinar you will learn best practices for putting your goals into action as well as explore hidden commitments that may be preventing you from accomplishing your goals.

Performance Management

Why Critical Thinking is Critical in the 21st Century Workplace
21st century workplaces are characterized by rapid change, accelerated technological breakthroughs, and a greater demand for higher levels of education and training required of previous generations. Developing critical thinking skills leads to higher levels of independence, self-trust, and the capacity to exercise initiative; all essential components for thriving in every level of a modern organization.

customized webinar

Customized Webinars tailor training to your team's specific needs.

Through customized webinars, HR Learning & Talent Development facilitators can tailor training content to meet a team’s specific needs, determined by research-based assessments, best practices and tools, in an interactive, remote environment.

Team Building with CliftonStrengths

CliftonStrengths, an online talent assessment created by Gallup Inc., is a powerful tool for developing high-performing teams. In this customized workshop, members of a team will take the CliftonStrengths online assessment individually (the cost is approximately $15 per person, purchased by the requesting department, directly through the vendor), then the facilitator will guide the group through the corresponding CliftonStrengths activities that are proven to increase engagement, encourage collaboration, and improve productivity and results. Participants will take away knowledge and skills on how to develop their own, and their team's, efficiency and performance.

Customized Webinar Offerings

 Team Building with CliftonStrengths and all Live Webinar topics may be developed into a customized webinar, finely tuned to your team's specific needs. However, if you don’t see a topic that aligns with your needs, please contact us so we can discuss how to develop the skills important for your team.
