Random Customer Review

I found all the course content very useful, even the topics I didn't think I needed training on. The most beneficial topics were decision making, managing emotions, conflicts and communication. The trainer was very engaging, using a lot of great examples. There was not a boring moment in the two days I attended. He made sure that we left knowing exactly what we needed to work on and how we can implement the changes. Thank you!

About the Course

All successful individual people share the attribute of Goal focus.
To be successful means to achieve a worthwhile goal. Because it is impossible to achieve a goal that you never set, the first step to greater achievement is the setting of clear and distinct goals.

So, we need to become more goal focused, we need to improve our powers of communication and our abilities to gain and keep the cooperation of others, especially during tough times.
You must be able to communicate the details of your goal to all those who need to know.
So, developing your communication skills is very important.

The third part of your success strategy will be to develop the ability to give people constructive criticism, so they will make continuous improvements to their performance.
So, you may need to learn to set goals, communicate goals and maintain a cooperative atmosphere in the team.

Your skill at defining goals, and gaining the cooperation of the team to help you to achieve them, is the measure of your success.

If you really want to learn some new techniques that will improve your ability to get the best from yourself and others, then you need to attend this very instructive, informative and inspiring training course.

Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training Course Content

Goal Setting Course - AM



How do you get the best from yourself and others?

Develop the following six major skills:

  • Set Specific goals
  • Communicate with greater clarity
  • Organise your plans
  • Handling difficult people skills
  • Manage your own emotions
  • Inspiring others. Emotional intelligence

Your performance is measured against your goals.

Your organisation exists to achieve its goals.
Goal focus is the major skill.
Goal focus is the art of setting on a goal and focussing on it long enough to achieve it.

Know what you want and know what other want

Goal Setting Potential Relationship

What do you want, and what do others want?
You need to know exactly what you want and exactly what others want. The overlap is your opportunity to do business.

The difference between a wish and a goal

Goals are not wishes
Wishes are mere flights of fancy
Goals are specific, objectively defined, numerical, achievable, realistic and optimistic.

How to set and agree on specific goals.

  • Be specific
  • Define your goal numerically
  • Define all your key terms
  • Identify the skills knowledge needed
  • Identify the material resources needed
  • Identify the time needed
  • Ensure the deadline is reasonable and agreed

State your goals in the positive sense.

Don’t state goals in the negative sense.

A negative goal is leaves unstated what you will do, and merely states what you won’t do.

If you say, “I won’t repeat the mistakes of the past”. Then we still do not know what you are going to do. You need to state goals in the affirmative. Example, “By the end of the decade, we will put an American on the moon at return him safety”.
Avoid negative commands: Give only positive commands

Make sure that last thing they hear from you is what you DO want.
Always make the last thing they hear, before they leave, a statement about what you DO want.

The literature and content were very organised and well presented. The examples were very helpful. Trainer’s presentation was clear, organised and will structured. Friendly and easy to talk to and ask questions

Goal Setting Course - PM

Conflict is inevitable. You are bound to get some. How you manage conflict is an important question.

Some people can be difficult to handle. They are too pushy, or too moody.
They do the wrong things.
They don’t do the right things.

Handle difficult people according to the proper principles.

The proper principles means, “According to the principles of reason.”

Protect their self-image:-
Their self-image is their ego, or pride, their self-concept.
Never attack their self-concept.

  • Identify wrong actions
  • Name the exact behaviour
  • Clearly, state what is "wrong."
  • Suggest a specific corrective action that will solve the problem
  • Agree corrective actions
  • Gain commitment to making the change to improve performance
  • Ask for the commitment to the corrective action
  • If they do not commit, then distinguish between reasons and excuses.

Distinguish reasons from excuses and have a different policy for each.
Gain commitments, to the improved action.

The moment the make a change, “Tag it”, with some positive feedback

Make proper use of well-timed thanks praise and appreciation

Practical exercises for the delegates to learn skills

Training Summary

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

The course was really insightful with a lot of tools that I can take back and use on a day to day basis. The trainer's presentation was very good. Particularly liked how there were a lot of diagrams and specific 'punchy' notes summarising as we went along.
