LEGENDARY LEADERSHIP   Tuesday, October 29th 9:00 a.m. – noon

This program is designed for participants interested in uncovering, then cultivating their leadership potential. It defines leadership and provides participants with the opportunity to take inventory of their skills, attitudes, values, and abilities. Legendary Leaders have developed their talents to the point where they not only impact on events, they impact on the lives of those around them. In the 21st century leaders coach, mentor, and facilitate the team in reaching their individual and collective potential. To lead is to serve.

 BUILDING A LISTENING ORGANIZATION    Wednesday, October 30th 9:00 a.m. – noon

Listening is a critical skill for leaders hoping to build teams; for individuals wishing to bond with other members of their organizations; for managers hoping to make an impact on their colleagues’ performance and for organizations who aspire to excellent customer service. This seminar will explore the importance of active listening, examine why human beings are not effective listeners, give the participants the opportunity to take inventory of their listening skill and provide practical advice on how to adjust personal and organizational behaviors to become more involved in the listening process.

 CREATING A LEGENDARY CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE    Friday, November 8th 9:00 a.m. – noon

Transform your customers, clients, members and all those you serve into an uncompensated sales force! Delight them so much that they will be motivated to sing your praises. No marketing strategy is as powerful as a strongly positive first hand testimonial. Word of mouth is more effective in securing new customers than any other method of promotion. The critical importance of good customer service is evident in both its personal and economic impact.

Excellence is not accidental. It is the result of deliberate planning and high expectations. It is not free. It is, however, very cost effective. The reputation of any organization is dependent upon its attention to the customer. Be part of a legend! It is easier and far less costly to keep a customer than it is to find a new one.

STRESS FOR SUCCESS!    Friday, November 8th 1:00-4:00 p.m.

TGIF! Friday afternoon is a perfect time to reserve for some personal development. After a busy week, come to our Deming Way campus and share an oasis of calm contemplation as we take you through the steps to managing the stress in your life.

Employers, treat your hard-working people to this fabulous seminar on how to transform stress into energy. People are more productive, happier, and healthier when stress is under control. Everyone wins! Invest some time in pursuit of energy and wellness! This presentation will give you practical advice on how to manage the stress in your life. No one can or should eliminate stress from their lives, but it can be reduced to a manageable level.
