Transformation in the Workplace: A Communication Seminar

This seminar provides an environment in which participants can explore various aspects of their communications and behavior and the impact they may unknowingly have on others. In a loosely structured format designed to allow one to discover the nuances of true communication, this course acts as a non-judgmental laboratory environment which reveals and dissolves those unaware, reflexive behaviors that are counter-productive in an office environment. Transformation in the Workplace is appropriate for people of all professions and is specifically geared toward those companies and individuals who want to operate at peak efficiency and who desire to have work be a highly satisfying experience.

Some of the areas in which previous participants have reported dramatic results:

  • An increased ability to listen to clients and respond to their needs.
  • Increased productivity
  • Increased sales
  • Greater job satisfaction
  • Greater rapport with managers, co-workers, and/or staff
  • Less job related stress
