Workshops and Trainings

 

Topics for Small Business Owner organizations and groups*

 

1. Time Management – Working Smarter, not Harder

Length – 1 – 1.5 hours.

Content – This seminar includes specific tools Cami uses in coaching professionals to be more productive and improve their use of time. She teaches attorneys, other professionals and small business owners to use these tools and work smarter rather than harder. She offers a “paradigm shift” – a different way of viewing time and time management and specific changes that participants can implement right away to improve the way they use their time, to ease stress and to increase productivity.

2. Communication and Accountability – Stronger Relationships, Better Results

Length – 1.5 – 2 hours.

Content – This seminar includes two basic tools.

Accountability: The first tool covers the use of accountability and specifically accountable language, attitude and practices in order to assist participants to take ownership and responsibility for their actions in order to manifest the results they want. Participants will learn that accountability is empowering and enables them to make change in their businesses and their lives. While it is sometimes challenging at first to stop pointing the finger at others, or at circumstances, when people learn to ask where they can change their own behavior, they see their results increase dramatically, and frustration go down. This seminar includes the opportunity to practice using accountable language and experience what it feels like to speak this way and what it evokes in the person listening.

Communication: The second set of tools taught in this seminar are listening tools, specifically “reflective” or empathic listening. Listening is the most important part of communication. Often we are better at arguing, convincing and getting our point across. But most people find they are more effective when they begin to truly listen – to what their clients are saying, superiors are saying and what family members are saying. This seminar includes practices where the participants have the opportunity to work with one another to begin learning specific listening skills.

This seminar can be split into either accountability or communication only.

3. Values-Based Living

Length – 1 – 1.5 hours.

Content – This seminar teaches the concept of values and values-based decision-making. We will discuss how knowing your specific values and making decisions based on those values can make your business, personal life, and balancing the two a lot easier. The seminar contains specific tools on discovering values. In the longer version of the seminar we will actually use some of these tools to begin to discover the participants’ values.

The seminar can be expanded in time and in the longer version, we will also have an interactive discussion of values and how to apply them to our businesses.

4. Building Trust in our Lives and Work

Length – 1 – 1.5 hours.

Content – This seminar lays out the problems of lack of trust in the current climate and involves discussion of the prices we pay for having lack of trust with others. It examines what will be gained when we increase the level of trust and trustworthiness we have with others and contains specific practices participants can employ to build trust.

*Note that all seminars can be expanded or contracted to fit the allotted time. Additionally all seminars include one hour of complimentary coaching by way of sign-up, as a follow-up to applying learning gained in the seminars. Cami also designs talks based on the group’s specific needs.
