C-4: Performance Skills
Contracting, Conflict, Counseling, Coaching


Workshop Description

This workshop consists of four modules that provide skills to help you manage interpersonal relationships in the workplace, whether you are a manager, supervisor, team leader or project manager.


Getting results with and through others

It happens all too often. We give others a project and a deadline. Yet, the work is not completed on time. Or, it is not done correctly. Or, even worse, it is not done at all! This module prevents negative outcomes and assures positive ones by acknowledging the fact that successful delegation depends on collaboration and, when necessary, problem solving. We learn how to lead a discussion so that others clearly understand what we need from them; define the tools and information needed to get the job done; and follow-up to ensure that steady progress is being made. Also, we learn how to hold the other person accountable when they have broken their commitment to us. We learn how to get uncommitted, yet capable people back on track and keep them there.

Conducting cooperative problem-solving discussion while staying calm

Conflict between individuals and groups does not have to be destructive. In fact, conflict can actually be healthy. It can give birth to new ideas and create stronger relationships between individuals and groups. The key is controlling your own emotions and being willing to resolve conflicts so both parties feel like winners. Win-Win! We address situations and arguments that annoy us, cause us stress and drain our productivity. We learn how to reduce the emotionality and awkwardness that accompanies conflict. We learn how to address others clearly and calmly to turn dissonance into harmony.

Helping others resolve their own problems

In the past, listening was defined as a one-step, passive process. No more! With today’s quality initiatives, high-performance work teams and empowerment, it is critical that listening become an active process – one that results in full comprehension, appreciation and cooperation. In this module, we learn to master active listening in the stages it occurs: awareness, attending, interpreting and responding. We also learn how to use active listening to help solve problems, by focusing on helpful and positive ways of responding to people who need our help.

Guiding employees to success

Success in business is a team sport that requires effective coaching at every level. This module is designed to make us effective coaches not just in theory – but in practice. This module focuses on practical skills that are proven to work. It makes a clear distinction between coaching moderate to high performers, and managing people who, for numerous reasons, are difficult to work with. This module is about observing on-the-job performance and giving objective feedback to associates who are open to hearing it.
