  • "Give your career a Rooster Booster" - Young Professionals Personal Development Skills Series - Workshop #1
    26 April 2017

    Workshop title: “Flexing your communication style to get results and make the right impact”

    Description and takeaways: Would you like to make a stronger impact with certain people or in certain situations at work? Do you sometimes feel frustrated by the manner in which others communicate? Building successful relationships and the impact you make are in large part tied to your natural communication style. This workshop explores styles of communication using a simple psychometric framework. Through presentation, discussion and exercises/case study scenarios, we will examine the four different communication preferences – the pros and cons of each – and, importantly, teach you techniques to adapt – or “flex” – your preferred style so that you can make the impact you want.

    The half-day mentoring session is a valuable opportunity for our workshop participants to get feedback on the money-management skills they learned after one or more workshops at Enrich. Volunteer mentors each help a mentee set goals, review progress, review tracking of spending, and calculate a savings plan to achieve goals. Mentors should have a basic understanding of budgeting and how to make healthy financial decisions, and be able to talk simply through options.
