Hiring Winning Talent
A successful hiring process doesn’t start with the job posting and doesn’t end when a candidate has been selected. Before an open position is advertised, an efficient and consistent hiring plan must be in place. That plan will enable a manager to identify the job competencies, build the interview questions, and develop the hiring strategy required to win a quality employee who performs well and fits in from day one. Hiring Winning Talent enables managers to implement a structured process that can really streamline and empower successful hiring. The program also focuses on the key skills required to interview candidates and ways to build team cohesion by involving team members in the hiring initiative.
Improving Work Habits
Team leaders and first-line managers deal with many tough day-to-day issues, such as absenteeism, conduct, profane or obscene language, dress or grooming habits and carelessness or negligence. Since poor work habits are a major cause of disciplinary action, the effective team leader will deal with unsatisfactory habits as soon as they are recognized. Poor work habits must be corrected as soon as possible in order for a team to function effectively. The Improving Work Habits program will prepare your team leaders to confront unsatisfactory team member behavior, which can be difficult.
Leading Successful Projects
The new world of management work is no longer about "sweating the small stuff" because most of the small stuff is no longer a manager's responsibility. Those day-to-day tasks have been replaced with project work that takes weeks or months to complete. Managers now lead, or are part of, project teams that are responsible for projects with a direct and significant connection to the bottom line. Unfortunately, many managers are not really prepared to lead project teams. As a result deadlines, budgets, and deliverables are all at risk.
As the leaders on the front line, managers and team leaders are often the first to hear team member complaints.

Professionalism in the Office
Office automation has changed the nature of office work. Today, less time is required for traditional responsibilities, while tasks requiring organizational and management skills are becoming more important. Now more than ever, employees need training in the basics of the workplace: professionalism, effective communication skills, and methods of increasing personal productivity and efficiency. Professionalism in the Office trains participants to be more professional, thus more effective on the job.
The cost of errors made by office personnel can be staggering. Even small typographical errors in letters or proposals reflect poorly on your organization and can discourage customers from working with your company. Proofamatics is a training course that will increase the accuracy of written communication through improved proofreading skills.
Providing Performance Feedback
This module shows the way evaluation is done by the experts. First, relevant performance standards are established. Then the team member's own performance evaluation is solicited. This accomplished, the stage is set for a summary evaluation that will be clear and credible to the team member.
Retaining Winning Talent
Many team leaders need to realize the significant leverage that they have to combat turnover. Retaining Winning Talent helps team leaders accept that. In the majority of situations team members quit their team leader not their organization. Retaining Winning Talent helps leaders take productive steps to keep talented team members.
Solving Workplace Problems
In the workplace, solving problems is not only addressing issues and problems as they arise but also involves looking at the way things are currently being done to find better ways of doing them. The major problem encountered in solving problems occurs when the root cause is not properly defined or identified. In the rush to finish a project, people often jump to conclusions and take action on the first solution that appears when most times there are multiple solutions. Determining the best solution requires a problem solving process. Solving Workplace Problems provides an effective approach and the tools necessary for improving current processes that organizations use to solve organizational problems.
