Next Wave offers a selection of programs specifically designed to address key challenges faced by today's professionals in a knowledge worker's world:
The Essence of Expectation
One of the biggest disconnects between workers is unspoken or under developed expectations. Improving your skills in asking for and offering up the commitments you intend will create clear expectations. Using the well-researched, widely-administered DiSC profile assessment, you can learn how to modify your behavior so you can set and meet expectations more powerfully than before. More important, this approach to communicating builds trust by design. If all agendas are on the table, every player is more likely to engage.
Influence: Refining your leadership presence
You give off dozens of cues to others verbally and non-verbally. To achieve leadership presence, you must consider these cues intentionally and design them so that they align with your agenda. Exactly how do you do that? You get clear on your agenda, crystal clear. And then you choose the cues that reinforce it. With practice, you'll be saying what you want, asking for what you need and leaving the desired impression.
Listening, Filtering and Asking: The communications triple play
Especially for technical professionals and introverts (often one in the same), this half or full day session demonstrates how you can build on your natural strengths to listen, filter for relevant information and ask curious questions to effectively build relationships at work.
