Development Programs

Change Management

Change is situational: a new job, a new boss, a new role in the team, a new policy etc. Transition is the psychological process by which one must go through to cope with the new situation. Change is external, transition is internal. Unless transition occurs, change will not work: people will not adopt the new behavior required to perform the planned change.

There is no doubt that people have a natural resistance to change, and this can manifest itself in several ways.

We can consider the strikes, reduced productivity and increased turnover as explicit forms of resistance to change. However, the loss of work motivation, low commitment, the "mental mistakes", indiscipline, internal conflicts, the climate of tense work, lateness, increased absenteeism, requests for transfers, among others, may be the result of implicit resistance.

In general, people do not simply refuse to change, but resist to how these changes occur or are conducted. It is a demanding time, mentally and emotionally, but that should and can be seen as a great opportunity for learning and growth. The chaos of the transition between the "old" and "new" can be a very creative period, when it is well-directed and understood.

Coaching

The Personal and Professional Coaching is a development program and its use has grown tremendously in recent years. It is changing the way people can seek or receive structured support to set the desired state for their personal or professional life and thus achieve the necessary transitions to reach it.

Coaching is a process conducted by a professional, the coach, equipped with a robust "toolbox" in order to identify the current state of the client (coachee) and walk with him to the desired state.

During the process, the Coach will monitor the action plan established by the Coachee and will be the facilitator to circumvent the obstacles and seek ever greater challenges, aiming to help him/her get closer to the established goal and to the behavioral competences to be developed.

PHDI - Interactive Skills Development Programs

The Interactive Skills Development Program (PDHI) is a combination of theoretical information and experiential exercises, through which the participant is led to think, reason, reflect and express feelings related to each theme. This awareness, plus the desire to grow as a person and professional, will enable a permanent change in the usual way of thinking and acting.

The Interactive Skills Development Program consists of topics with the focus to develop skills and attitudes related to communication and how we interact, aiming to create more effective and healthy models in relations, especially in the workplace.

The methodology is participatory and experiential. Self-analysis questionnaires, group dynamics, case studies, films and role-plays are used, aiming at the application of the course content to the organizational reality.

All contents, as well as the suggested workload, are customized in agreement with the customer.

The customer can choose contents from different courses in order to create programs that meet their needs.

Leadership Skills

Assertive Communication

Assertiveness is defined as self-expression through which a person expresses what he/she feels and thinks, defending his/her basic human rights without disregarding the basic human rights of others.

In human communication, both non-assertive and aggressive behavior rarely help people to get what they want or to let others know how they feel and need.

A person who is not assertive or who is passive often does not manifest him/herself.

The aggressive person ends up losing business, customers and friends, for their communication generates resentment and hostility.

Team Work

Effective managers expect their teams will become a "high performing team" working on the basis of assumptions: open and transparent communication among its members, ability to negotiate and deal with the most difficult, subtle and conflict generator issues, proactivity and commitment of the team members with the growth and personal success of each one, as well as for the achievement of common goals.

This program, quite experiential, aims to stimulate the process of self-knowledge and mutual knowledge, to develop the authenticity of relationships, to provide a sense of team quality, to promote personal and professional development, increasing the degree of empathy among participants. It also aims to draw attention to attitudes and behaviors that facilitators, when inked, give sync to the work done by the group of people.

Conflict Management

Conflicts are inevitable and can occur in any company. However, managers need to be alert to notice them and decide which are the main steps to take in order to deal with this reality and to use it as a constructive force.

Some professionals consider the conflict something negative, as a result of the action and behavior of undesirable people, associated with aggressiveness, physical and verbal confrontation and negative feelings, harmful to the good relationship between people and consequently the proper functioning of companies.

In a positive view, the conflict may generate new ideas and lead to open discussions on certain subjects, which is positive because it allows the expression and exploration of different views, interests and values. Repressed conflicts can take, in most cases, a destructive character.

Conflict management consists of choosing and implementing the most appropriate strategies to deal with each situation.

Instructors Training or Successful Presentations

The Human Side of Change

People do not refuse to change; we resist to the way change occurs or is conducted.

In the business environment change processes are difficult to implement when little attention to the emotional aspects of those involved is given.

Although there are great differences in how we react to changes, in general it is true that we prefer to stay in the comfort zone that what is known provides.

The new, the uncertain and the unknown cause anxiety because, for sure, they will oblige us to review ways of thinking, feeling and acting. This creates discomfort and we dislike that. The question always remains: How will I manage these new challenges? Will I cope with that?

In this course we introduce some concepts developed by Bridges, who studied the management of transitions, whether in business, professional or personal levels.

Mentoring is a program where an experienced professional guides and share experiences and knowledge with professionals in development, to give them guidance and advice for the development of their careers. These guidelines range from the personal level to the professional level.

The goal is for the Mentor to transfer to the Mentee tacit knowledge acquired through his/her professional experiences in a broader and less structured way than during the coaching process.
