Outstanding training and personal Coaching included

Interpersonal Skills Development

The world's best leaders, managers and supervisors display outstanding interpersonal skills. They acquired these skills by developing and refining a personal style which enhances themselves, their products/services and their company/organization.

How did they do it? By modeling themselves to be the successful person they wished to become.

"The nearest way to glory is to strive to be what you wish to be thought to be."

-- Socrates (469-399 BC)

Patricia Fripp, an internationally renowned speaker, executive speech coach and author, says in her book Get What You Want! that you must act the part of the the successful person you wish to become.

Jim Cathcart displays the following at website:

Use this question to motivate yourself every day!

"How would the person I'd like to be... the things I'm about to do?"

How you are seen by others sends a powerful message about ourselves. We are constantly assessing others by what we see, and likewise, others are sizing you up by reading your body language -- how you present yourself.

Our demonstration interpersonal skills session includes exercises and explanations about how you can through sincerity, helping others, enthusiasm, attentiveness and friendliness project a positive image which will contribute to your success.1

Also included in our interpersonal skills session is a unit on attitude. Having the right attitude is critical to our business success (and our success in life). Your attitude is contagious. People tend to perform as you expect them to perform. What you are getting (in performance) is what you are expecting -- communicated by your attitude toward them.

Napoleon Hill in his classic book Think and Grow Rich discusses the attitudes necessary for business success. You must “think right” to be successful. In his book Keys to Success he presents 17 principles of personal achievement.1 When I was actively conducting manager training session I started my January training session each year referencing his principles as a framework for lifetime self improvement and passed out a (reduced size) copy that participants can reference in as daily exercise.

The final unit in our demo interpersonal skills module covers channeling unproductive emotions -- your own and of others -- into positive outcomes. Following the steps of showing empathy, determining the issue, and then searching for win/win solutions become automatic with practice.

The interpersonal skills module integrates many of the elements covering in the other modules in the communicating skills series. Just remember, improved interpersonal skills help you communicate better -- and that is good for your employees and for your organization.
