Creating Value

The purpose of business is the creation of value. When we as individuals examine our lives, we realize that our individual purpose as human beings is also to create value. But how do you measure value? People and businesses all use different yardsticks, but one thing is certain: the creation of value involves interpersonal communication. If we increase our ability to communicate effectively, we increase our ability to create value. In the process, if we can develop a vision for community and teamwork in our work and in our personal lives, we can leverage our communication skills to create maximum value.


An opportunity to learn and grow

This seminar was designed to increase the effectiveness of every participant as a communicator and as a team member. During the seminar, they will have the opportunity to step out of their daily work routines and look at how they communicate. The seminar will give them the opportunity to interact with other team members. They will enter into meaningful discussions about communication, teamwork and customer relationships that will result in a tremendous payback in their work and home lives for years to come.

Multiply the value of this seminar with a DISC Assessment

Everyone has his or her own communication style. DISC is a simple model for understanding communication styles and for adapting your style to more effectively communicate with others.

Prior to the seminar, each participant completes a survey and receives a 20-25 page report including:

  • An in-depth analysis of his/her communication style
  • Personalized communication tips based on his/her assessment
  • An action plan for improving his/her effectiveness as a communicator

The personalized reports, and group interaction based on the assessments, add tremendous depth to the seminar.

For more information about how DISC assessments are used to make our training programs more effective, please visit our DISC Training Workshops website.

The communication challenge

We often take for granted our ability to communicate. We use various forms of verbal and non-verbal communication in nearly everything we do, and we generally give little thought to the process. Communication, however, is both an art and a science; and it requires our full attention and consideration if we are to use it skillfully.

The fact is that the majority of the problems and conflicts we experience in our personal lives and at work stem from our failure to communicate effectively. Each of us lives in a very subjective world of individual perception. Every individual sees the world through a lens of subjectivity; and all input is filtered through that lens. In our interaction with others, we tend to assume that our words and actions are understood as we intended them. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work out that way. We misinterpret and are misunderstood, and don't often realize it until conflict arises.

In this interactive seminar, we examine interpersonal communication and customer relationships from different angles. Participants will learn new tools and techniques for communicating effectively and will have a lot of fun in the process.
