Colors
(1-2 days/ 1-2 trainers)

Individual personality, to a great degree, defines the boundaries by which we live our lives and predetermines the expectations we have of ourselves and of others.  Personality influences the words we use to communicate and how we interact with other people.  When life, relationships, and jobs compliment our personality boundaries, we have a sense of being in control of our lives.  Unfortunately, the opposite is also true, resulting in disharmony in the workplace.  Colors is a one-day interactive training seminar that will reveal how personality motivates people, defines how they interact and contribute in team environments, structures their problem-solving processes, regulates their time- and task-management styles, and impacts and determines the strengths and leadership qualities each individual brings to the workplace.  Why does one person react to a stressful situation with a smile while another, reacting to the same stimuli, breaks down in tears?   The answer is often found in their personalities.  Getting to know the personalities of the people you lead or work with can help you optimize their performance in the workplace, and that’s the desired outcome of the Colors seminar.  Colors is an informative, fun-filled learning day that will increase workplace effectiveness and carry over into the personal growth and satisfaction in the lives of your workers!

The Happiness Advantage seminar is a fun, interactive, one-day training session that will inspire your teams to seek happiness, knowing that happiness leads to success in nearly every domain, including work, health, friendship, sociability, creativity, and energy, but more importantly the classroom.  We highly recommend using this seminar to kick off the academic year or as a mid-year motivator to reenergize your people.

FISH (Years One, Two & Three)
(1 day / 1-2 trainers)

FISH is a one-day/year, 3-year team-building training seminar that will delight and energize your people, and motivate them to excel! The FISH Philosophy was inspired by a world famous business known for its incredible energy and commitment to service—the Pike Place Fish Market in Seattle, Washington.  Most people would assume working in a stinky fish market would be all gloom and drudgery, yet the folks at Pike Place Fish Market were energetic, happy, positive, and lively….and as a result, business flourished and profits soared.  We studied the fishmongers and identified four simple practices that can help anyone bring new energy and commitment to their work. This day is fun, fun, fun and will have your staff talking for weeks!  Moreover, it’ll prepare and motivate them to elevate their performance to a higher level.
