2. What behaviours am I influencing?

 

This workshop looks at types of communication and the responses we invoke, encourage and invite.  By examining the words you use, your body language and your internal reasons you can begin to understand why colleagues are rebellious, defensive, creative, highly driven, motivated or not in relation to you.

 3. Workplace Dynamics, Relationships and Behaviour

 

Do the same things keep happening to you?

 

This one-day experiential workshop (note all the workshops are experiential - meaning participants will be expected to work on their own work and life experience s with others) is designed for you to explore understanding more about yourself in relation to your workplace, colleagues, leadership and the organisation.

 

Ever heard yourself say ‘Why does this always happen to me?’  Or do you often find yourself in similar work situations with similar responses and same outcomes?  And, that these outcomes aren’t fabulous or positive or satisfying or just plain confusing and frustrating?  Or that certain people and situations seem to end up making you feel inferior, bad or not good enough? Well, you are not alone.  This is a global phenomenon! And thankfully we can do something about. This day could be the day that changes your life. Learn the ‘Winners Triangle’ and start change immediately.

 

Have you ever said?

 

  • How come this always happens to me?

  • I was only trying to help

  • I thought they wanted me to do it this way

  • How come they don’t engage?

  • Why do I feel like I am the only one around here who…

  • If I want the job done well I need to do it myself

  • I thought it was really clear

  • If it wasn’t for them

  • They don’t care

 

If you said ‘yes’ then you will know that misunderstandings and ‘interesting’ dynamics are common in the workplace.  Add different cultures and ethnicities, languages, stress levels, deadlines, the organisational culture – to name a few, and it is probably no wonder.

 

This workshop will introduce you to concepts where you will…

 

  • have tools and techniques to apply instantly for immediate positive results

  • understand your own and others responses to authority

  • gain insight into why people respond to you the way they do

  • have a fun learning

This day will cover a change methodology that is accompanied by the range of human factors so that you will be able to assist people wherever they are on the change continuum to come with you.  It will also encompass e-communication typical tones and gestures that can cause misunderstandings and misinterpretations.

OK, so you thought they said ‘X’ and they thought you would do ‘Y’.  Agreements and expectations due to our own context, thinking, agendas and rationale often end up mixed-up.    Misunderstandings are commonplace, add to the mix different cultures, languages, accents, stress levels, deadlines (to name a few) and it is no wonder.
