“The Triple AAA Factor: Attitude-Achievement-Accountability!”
(75 min. wkshp)
Whether you’re a leader supervising your specific department or teams, or an individual team player working towards a common goal, each one of us is held accountable for our own individual, as well as our team’s success. The main lesson or message presented in this workshop is just how much in terms of career success your attitude really counts!

The problem with attitudes is that they are a disease. Good or bad, they are contagious. This workshop examines:

* Understanding human relations
* Recognizing destructive vs. productive attitudes
* Learning how a positive attitude can help you succeed on the job
* Discovering how the right attitude can help you to solve problems on the job, resulting in higher levels of achievement.


“Get Set for Success!”
This goal-focused, high-participatory workshop focuses on motivation and success! It includes: defining success, how attitudes impact success, how role models influence our lives, qualities effective leaders must possess, five-step formula for success, and five important secrets all successful people know.
“Don’t Give in to the Doubters!”
This workshop provides a brief overview of the challenges we may face and why we fail, versus strategies we can use to succeed. We will examine a five-step formula for success and the four key elements any individual or organization needs to succeed.

“Values and Leadership”
This participant-centered, goal-focused workshop examines values and leadership as they relate to both individual and team success. The primary focus includes discussion on personal values, beliefs, and ideas that affect the decisions we make and the actions we take. Leadership skills, traits, and attributes are presented from a variety of perspectives, as well as team building strategies that will prompt members to action! Geared for participants working towards a goal and who wish to improve team member relations.

“Get Ready – Get Set – Goal!”

It has been said many times that luck happens when preparation and opportunity meet. This workshop emphasizes the importance of diligent practice, preparation, and commitment to follow through. Be a winner! Learn how you can make small changes for big improvements and achieve that winning goal! NOTE: This is an excellent workshop for both personal and professional development, and its message and objectives are specifically customized to fit your group’s particular goals.

“Finding the Leader Within You”

Good leaders are made not born. If you have the desire and will power, you can become an effective leader. Good leaders develop through a never-ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience. This workshop focuses on the human relations aspect of earning trust and respect from your team members, and the qualities effective leaders must possess. It is geared for participants ready to lead their teams to success.

“Eye On the Future”
We must all have a dream. Without one, we lack definiteness of purpose. Napoleon Hill said that definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement. You must first know where you are going if you are ever to have any hope of arriving there. This workshop focuses on how to overcome confidence-shaking moments, maintain focus on your goals, and what sets the achievers apart from the non-achievers.

“Listen and Learn”

If we can’t listen, we can’t learn. For most of us, just listening to information is not good enough to learn quickly and effectively. This workshop focuses on acquiring good listening skills and getting the information we need to respond appropriately and influence effectively. Become a better communicator and learn the difference between giving instruction versus giving information. Develop your assertiveness skills through polite messages without damaging your personal or professional relationships.


“The Professional Advantage”

First impressions are often lasting impressions. This workshop focuses on resume writing, interview skills and dressing for success. In addition, the workshop content will emphasize good communication, time-management and organizational skills, and the importance of developing good human relation skills. Make your first impression your best impression.

“Proficiency-Pride-Professionalism”
This workshop addresses the need for being proficient in our careers, having pride in our work, and maintaining a professional image. Content includes: developing our skill sets to the highest degree possible, fostering positive and productive work relationships with colleagues, supervisors and customers, our communication styles and the messages we convey through verbal/non-verbal behaviors, and the habits that can lead us to success or set us up for failure. This workshop helps to increase employee productivity and improve work performance.

“Conflict Resolution”

We deal with conflict everyday. How we deal with conflict is crucial to our own success. Participants will examine the cause of conflict from a variety of perspectives and will learn the strategies for achieving peaceful resolution. NOTE: This workshop is often coupled with “Dealing With Difficult People”.

“Dealing With Difficult People”

This workshop examines difficult personalities you may encounter during your workday and effective strategies for reducing workplace stress. Participants are often surprised when they discover habits, traits, or behavior patterns that they themselves possess which could be labeled as “difficult.” Please note that this is intended to be a non-threatening, fun, and humorous session. The focus is to acquire strategies that help participants to understand, cope with, and manage difficult personalities more effectively. NOTE: This workshop is often coupled with “Conflict Resolution.”

The “Road to Happiness”
The “Road to Happiness” offers simple exercises and activities to help you recognize the joy in every aspect of your life. Come learn the four principles of everyday happiness. Topics included are: happiness discovered at home, relationships, body, career, money, and nature. NOTE: Although this workshop can be tailored for any audience, its heartfelt message primarily focuses on women – especially single, widowed, or divorced. (Vitalia shares her own personal story).
