Communicating in Synch

(Interpersonal Communication)

To become a successful organization, communication is key!  Although many may see communication as common sense, apparently it is not that common.  Lack of this critical skill tends to be the root cause of poor morale, low job productivity, missed opportunities, and many more frustrations in the workplace.  This program will provide skills and strategies that focus on positive communications and real world collaborative problem solving that are needed on a daily basis.  Communicating in Synch™ will introduce the Three Guiding Principles®, which are the foundation for working with difficult team members, respecting cultural differences, focusing on solutions during a crisis, and redirecting negativity, as well as introducing the Plan-2-Agree model and de-escalation techniques. These three skills are guaranteed to enhance work relations and maximize individual and organizational potential, so staff will be Communicating in Synch™!   

Connect and Convey Your Message

SOP Writing with KISS (Keep it Super Simple!)

Which came first: the process or the procedure?  It might sound like a familiar joke, but it is not a laughing matter.  In fact, maintaining a current and complete set of Standard Operating Procedures is an issue many organizations struggle with, leaving them open to inconsistent service delivery, lack of knowledge management, and in some cases minimal tools to train with.  There are inherent struggles in writing and maintaining an effective SOP manual; this program will address them head on.  We will identify strategies to combat challenges, define essential procedure components that are often overlooked, determine who should be involved in defining the procedure, explore writing and editing styles for SOP manuals, draft procedure language, and share best practices.  Participants will walk away with tools, templates, drafts, and a clear plan for enhancing, or developing an agency’s SOP.
