Based on Carolyn Kalil's best selling book
Follow Your True Colors To The Work You Love

One Day Team Building Workshop

How many times have you seen a department where the employees don't talk to each other? Tensions flare, people make each other wrong and the stress level is higher than it needs to be. This can lead to loss of productivity and even burn out on the job mostly due to miscommunication among co-workers.

In this  Team Building Workshop the Kalil's will create a more positive work environment. It will identify the values, needs, and strengths that motivate the behavior of each individual team member. Participants will recognize and learn to appreciate the communication styles and working styles of all the members of the team. They will be equipped with tools to do their job more effectively and resolve workplace problems.

Lasting change begins inside of us. We must start with ourselves in order to change our world. Much of the breakdown in communication and conflict in the workplace is due to a lack of understanding and appreciation of individual differences and the judgments we make about those who are unlike us. The emphasis in this workshop is on individual change which will result in positive changes in the workplace.

This workshop has been designed using Carolyn's best selling book, Follow Your Inner Heroes(tm) To The Work You Love.

"There is one part of the session that set the tone for the entire day. It was when Carolyn told the staff that after participating in your workshop, they would never see people in shades of black or white.

That statement was very profound for me. It stuck in my head. I wondered if it would be true for me, being the skeptic that I am. But, I found that you were absolutely right!

After each staff person discovered their colors, and after you took us through the first few analytical steps, I, and it appears all staff, began to see each other's color spectrum. We began to see shades of green, orange, blue and gold.

For my professional and personal life, the exposure to your Inner Heroes(tm) process has made a profound change in the way I approach others. I find that I am consciously seeking to understand staff members from where they are, rather than from where I want them to be. "
