Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training - One Day Course

About this Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training Course

If we were to define the word “Success” as, “the achievement of a worthwhile goal”, then we could also say “to be successful you must first set goals”.

This popular course starts with the idea that your goals, (meaning, what it is you want) is one of the most important things to say about you.

You are defined by your goals.
Your team is defined by its goals.

Therefore, developing a “Goal focused mentality” is the first and most important thing you can do to improve your rate of progress.

So, the first major idea of this course is to be clear on WHAT it is that you want, (and to be clear on what it is that other people want). We call this state, “clarity of purpose”.

Only if you have “clarity of purpose” can you be successful.

The second major idea of the course is that you must clearly communicate your goals and plans to those who need to know. Unclear communication will cause unnecessary confusion and error. Therefore, how to achieve clear communication is essential knowledge.

We will cover what you can do today, to instantly improve the clarity of communication between you and other people.

The third major idea of the course is; people disagree.
People disagree and therefore you must know how to best manage conflicts.

On this course, you will learn how to quickly and easily handle conflict situations and negotiate practical solutions. Rational conflict resolution and negotiating is the third skill of this course.

The fourth major idea of the course is to inspire others.
Since people are emotional, you need to know how to create positive feelings by the proper use of appreciation, praise and good humour. Since everyone needs to feel appreciated, it is important to give positive feedback to all those who have earned it, (and sometimes positive feedback to people who have not yet earned it, simply to motivate them).

On this course you will learn everything you need to know to improve your results. You will also have the opportunity to meet people who are in similar situations as yourself; you will be able to compare experiences, make rapid progress and have fun at the same time.

Course content contained interesting and good material. Liked the philosophical aspect. You can easily use some methods in your private, social life. Was the right amount of content. The trainer was well prepared and motivated. Enough visual display. Loved the interaction. Quite active workshop.

Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training Course Content

Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training - Day One - AM

SMART Goals

Introductions

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 and return him safely”.
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.

Training Summary

I thought the course was well structured and thought out. It gave me good practices that I can take back and implement at work and some ideas to improve my own personal habits. The trainer was clear, concise and friendly. Sometimes courses are daunting, but I felt at ease straight away.

Customer Reviews

The Course 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!
