Participants in training will receive coaching to become skilled in communicating with differing types.

The Image Maker is an individual assessment and coaching process comparing the person’s self-perception with how others view them. The results are obtained through a personality profile, an in-depth interview, and interview responses from a select group of references who are well acquainted with the candidate. This information is analyzed and presented to the candidate with recommendations in a confidential feedback session. This well documented report yields a realistic view of how this individual is perceived by others. The Image Maker allows information to be obtained and delivered without added personal risk to the candidate or references. Follow-up coaching is offered.
A common application for the Image Maker is to provide remedial intervention on the candidate’s performance in the workplace as a corrective action requirement. New supervisors and high-potential managers have found the program valuable in fine-tuning their personal leadership and relational skills. The Image Maker will position the candidate with an advantage for significant growth and development.
Team Assessment and Action Planning
Participants will learn the pattern of progressive team development through a team performance model. A team survey will measure current effectiveness through the team model, and develop a prioritized action plan through a nominal group process.
Through highly interactive training sessions, participants are taught and will practice effective coaching skills. The focus of coaching is on the supervisory role that influences an employee toward peak performance. These methods have been effective in employee problem solving, corrective behavioral changes, and interactions between co-workers.
Facilitation Training offers skills demonstrating the unique role of the facilitator as a process leader. Interactive practices are taught, leading to the prioritization of action steps. Methods of facilitation include the Nominal Group Process, 10/4, and S.M.I.L.E.
