April 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Live Online

We’re hearing a lot about introverts these days – some of it’s positive, some not so much. There are statistics floating around saying that about 25% – 35% of the general population are introverts…which means that a vast majority of people are extroverts.

PLAN Webinar: The 5 Habits of People Who Form Good Habits with Linda Bruno

April 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Live Online

Here we are, already a few months into another new year. Wow, that time went fast! Many people make resolutions at the beginning of every year, knowing in their hearts that they won’t keep them. Why won’t they keep them? Because they haven’t thought through what new habits will be required to make sure “this one sticks” – or even why they want to make the change in the first place. And as we all know, the “deciding” to change…

As a supervisor or manager, how you approach and handle different situations in your organization will largely depend on the style of management you use.

Have you ever been guilty of “not listening” (who, me??), even when you are right there in front of the speaker, looking them in the eye? Communication experts say that 42% to 57% of our time communicating is spent listening – or maybe we should say “hearing,” since we all can be adept at hearing without listening! Even in this day of emailing, instant messaging, and texting, we still need to “listen” to be able to communicate effectively. In this…

Customer service – we hear about it every day, if not every hour! Sadly, what many call “service” in today’s world is simply the minimum attention required to get the transaction over with.

Many people find it intimidating to have to share an idea or to “speak up” about something to a colleague, peer, or higher up. And being seen by others as someone who is more passive, introverted, and quiet probably doesn’t help.

To be more assertive, you will need to change a few of your behaviors by learning and practicing some new skills. And…
