Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
Based on the proven principles found in Dr. Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® , the Seven Habits course is training that helps your organization achieve sustained superior results by focusing on making individuals and leaders more effective. In this three-day series, participants learn how to: take initiative, balance key priorities, improve interpersonal communication, leverage creative collaboration, and apply principles for achieving a balanced life.

FOCUS: Achieving Your Highest Priorities
FOCUS: Achieving Your Highest PrioritiesTM is an engaging, one-day, facilitator-led, time management workshop that helps employees learn how to clarify, focus on, and execute their highest priorities. Participants master the skills of planning their weeks and organizing their days so their time is spent on tasks that really matter. They discover how to clearly define goals and break them down into key tasks, eliminate unnecessary activities to reduce stress, balance work and life priorities, and master information management with a proven planning system.

Project Management: A Practical ApproachTM
This project management training course is taught as a two-day, facilitator-led process, and encourages attendees to focus on their own current projects for a truly hands-on experience. The two-day training is ideal for project managers and coordinators who work on more complex projects and whose jobs are increasing in responsibility.

On day one, workshop participants learn how to: 1) develop a smart project plan; 2) execute the right tasks at the right time, thereby decreasing project costs; 3) obtain and strengthen buy-in from team members and stakeholders; and 4) learn how to recognize potential problems and issues, allowing an opportunity to course-correct.

On day two, participants will learn to: 1) process the projects they bring to the workshop; 2) analyze complex projects using additional resources such as Gantt charts and project-initiation tools; 3) learn to balance constraints like time, schedule, and resources; 4) identify ways to control and track communication; and 5) analyze project-related risks and create a "hotspots" plan.

   1. Build trust and influence with others.
