When customer satisfaction, moving forward and improving forward are critical to workplace success, Consistent Positive Direction is essential.
The words we choose can move us in a direction toward, or away from effective relationships, performance and morale. We are in charge of those choices. Consistent Positive Direction means that the words we speak steer us toward the successes or outcomes that we want or need with others.
In this interactive session, participants learn what it takes to use the communication and relationship skills to speak, write and learn in a positive direction and to address critical realities in a positive direction with near 100% consistency. Everyone participates. The skills and approaches are designed for immediate use and easily apply to existing programs, projects and initiatives. They are especially effective in:
- Finding solutions
- Resolving differences
- Building relationships
- Moving toward the next level
They are integrated into every aspect of human interaction. Learn skills and approaches that you can use right away to communicate with anyone in a positive direction, at work and beyond. Participants will have ‘first hand’ experience as they learn and use positive direction communication skills concerning real life, real time circumstances.
