                                                Module Description:

                                                Every time someone speaks in a group setting they are playing a role. These communication roles don’t last long -- from a minimum of a couple of seconds to a maximum of a couple of minutes. Yet these “microroles” greatly impact group effectiveness by determining how well the group handles information. In fact, these verbal patterns determine whether individuals even understand what’s going on.

                                                Outcomes include:

                                                • Understanding how to play the role

                                                • Playing the 10 task roles that insure the job gets done.

                                                • How to play 6 relationship roles to build bonds between individuals

                                                • Recognizing and controlling the 10 self-oriented roles that disrupt groups

                                                • Identifying four personality types that produce dysfunctional behavior.

                                                This is for managers, supervisor's, and service professionals such as health care professionals, accountants, trainers, and consultants.

                                                Average speakers use a presentation to inform. Great speakers use the platform to persuade, motivate and to inspire. They know techniques one has to learn and practice to wow the audience.

                                                When the best visuals are combined without a dynamic, credible speaker, there a magic in words. Be ready to learn how to cast a few spells.

                                              Steps:

                                              1. Choose a public program on this site OR contact us for customized training. 

                                              2. Register and pay for the course of learning.

                                              3. Fill Out Your Profile.

                                              4. Stay on top of the orientation emails you will receive. 


                                              Orientation


                                              Taking on orientation program is optional, but highly recommended. We run three orientations:

                                              1. Orient Yourself to Moodle. Never taken on online class? We got you covered.

                                              2. Enhance Expertise. For the full classes, we focus on improving reading comprehension, focusing attention, and how to reduce the forgetting curve.

                                              3. Upgrade Skills. Few know how to practice. Fewer still know the mental practices that accelerate skill development.

                                              Learning


                                              Engage in one or more of our four, six, twelve or sixteen- week courses. 

                                              Proof of learning does not involve grades (unless needed for employer reimbursement). As evidence of successful completion you receive a certificate (for expertise) and badges (for coaching). 

                                              Develop artifacts elated to the work you do in a course. This can be shared on sites like Linkedin as part of your profile.  

                                              Finally, reflect on experience to develop lessons learned. 

                                              Strive For Excellence
