interviewing techniques most helpful. I considered her presentation
displayed her confidence and thorough knowledge of her subject matter.
She was able to give me well thought out answers to questions I and
other delegates posed. Kathline presented herself in a professional and

Motivating Your Workforce...
It’s no secret. Employees who feel they are valued and recognized for
the work they do are more motivated, responsible, and productive. This

loyal, and energized workplace. It is designed specifically to help busy
managers and supervisors understand what employees want, and to give
them a starting point for creating champions.

the whip, and the plant How fear and desire affect employee motivation
Ways to create a motivational climate and design a motivating job
Developing Your Coaching Skills....
Coach, Role Model, Counsellor, Supporter, Guide...do these words ring
a bell? Being a coach involves being a role model, sometimes a
counsellor or supporter, and always a guide. Coaching is based on a
partnership that involves giving both support and challenging
opportunities to employees.
This one-day workshop will help you to:

Developing High Performance Teams....
The difference between a high-performance team and an average team is
enormous. Average teams often struggle just to get through a meeting or
to get a policy drafted. High performance teams work well together to
maximize energy, resources, and creativity, resulting in amazing things.
This three-day workshop will help you develop the skills to build a
high performance team, including how to:
Identify different types of teams

At its core, leadership means setting goals, lighting a path, and
persuading others to follow. But the responsibility entails much more.
Leaders must get their message out in a way that inspires, make the most
of their limited time, and build roads to precious resources. They must
negotiate alliances, improve their colleagues, and align the ambitions
of the many with the needs of the organization

leadership by teaching you how to:
