The group of modules in this skill area addresses the specific needs for basic work skills for today’s line and staff support employees.
 

Session #1

What It Takes to Succeed: The Basic Principles

To succeed in today’s changing workplace; every employee needs a firm foundation for communicating with managers and co-workers, and a clear understanding of workplace norms, and expected attitudes and behaviors. This module also addresses basic job responsibilities, gives participants a sense of their place in the organization and their impact on others, and sets the stage for skills modules to follow.

Session #2

Positive Responses to Change
(2 hours)

If the only constant these days is change, it’s vital for all employees to respond swiftly and positively to the many changes they face or will face in their jobs. Because of the natural human resistance to change, however, it’s easy for them to feel victimized and, as a result, to be left behind or, worse, to seek other employment. This module addresses the need to understand and make the most of changes on the job. Participants use a four-step process called FLEX to create positive and flexible responses that improve their long-term success in the organization.

Session #3

Helping Your Team
Work
(2 hours)

In almost every job, success depends on shared projects, effective group interaction, coordinated effort, and helping one another in a pinch. Where team skills and awareness are weak, an employee can impede the performance of the team with potentially disastrous secondary impact on the entire organization. This module helps participants understand the impact of their actions on others, the power and personal rewards of teamwork and the habits of effective team players. In lively interactive exercises, participants learn and apply a simple set of daily actions that promote positive relationships and coordinated team efforts.
