Fitting In....And Standing Out

A 3-hour seminar for Entry Level Employees presented by Sherry M. Wyatt

Joining a professional workforce filled with people more experienced can be intimidating.  Experience takes time.  There is no way around it.  New employees can be exceptional, however.  They can deviate from the norm, by learning in advance those skills that will be a huge part of their success, but not dependent upon time on the job.


In his book, Emotional Intelligence , author Dan Goleman writes:
Businesses need associates who "have a strong sense of self-awareness, who know how they come across, who exercise good self control, who are empathetic and skilled at listening, resolving conflicts, and gaining cooperation."

This seminar is to convince entry level employees that there is much more to being successful than knowing how to do a job.  In addition to how well they perform, their value will be based on how they present themselves and the ability to communicate with others in a manner that gets things done.

For the new employee: 

1.  Ninety-three percent (93%) of your believability is based on what others observe about you visually and what they hear in your voice.  How are you coming across?  Learn the importance of knowing what signals you are sending and how those signals affect your believability.

2.  Learn the characteristics of a professional, including appearance and demeanor.

3.  More than 80% of your day will be spent communicating.  A large portion of that communication should be listening.  Unfortunately, few of us do that very well. This seminar will explain 4 listening strategies that will absolutely set you apart.

4.  Multitasking is ruining productivity.  A study by the University of Michigan in 2001 stated that "chronic multitasking has roughly the same effect on the brain as several strong martinis".  You will learn the consequences of multitasking, not the least of which is poor manners.

5.  Your use of technology to communicate may be a way of life.  As a business professional, however, e-mail, instant messages, and texting can overwhelm you and waste a great portion of your day. Learn to use these technologies as they were intended, as business tools, utilizing strategies that will streamline efficiency.
