Oct 22, 2018 9:00 AM 002-812 Effective Workplace Communication Maureen Van Overliw

Communication is essential for effective functioning in every part of an organization. Although marketing, production, finance, personnel, and maintenance departments may receive direction from corporate goals and objectives, communication links them together and facilitates organizational success. When all members of a team, department, or organization are able to communicate effectively with each other and with people outside their group, they are much more likely to perform well.

This two-day course will explore the concept of communication including identifying the two phases of communication, how perception may influence communication, the impact of non-verbal communication and how to select an appropriate channel of communication depending on the message and intent (telephone, email, in-person, etc).

This course is suitable for all levels of professionals.

Curious about your MBTI type? Come join us for a day to discover your personality type and explore the theory through engaging discussions and activities.

Many of the nation’s leading organizations (including over three-fourths of the Fortune 100 and many government and non-profit organizations) use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment with employees and managers.

The MBTI instrument identifies a person’s four basic type preferences that combine into one of 16 different personality types. These results help you understand normal differences in the way people think, communicate, and interact—differences that can be the source of much misunderstanding. The MBTI instrument has been used for more than 50 years to establish greater understanding between individuals, and has been translated into more than 15 different languages for use around the world.

 The MBTI tool can be used for the following purposes:

  • Training and development of employees and managers
  • Improving teamwork
  • Coaching and developing others
  • Improving communication
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Understanding personal styles to maximize effective use of human resources
  • Determining the organization’s type

Please join us for this full-day course to help enhance your strengths and develop your weaker areas to set you up for personal and professional success. Space is limited.

Jan 28, 2019 9:00 AM 000-000 EQ Composite Workshop #1 - Self-Perception Maureen Van Overliw

New to emotional intelligence? Beginning or strengthening your journey to personal or professional leadership? Start here. This workshop will focus on the three main sub-sets of self-perception:
1. Self-Regard
Respecting oneself while understanding and accepting one’s strengths and weaknesses.

2. Self-Actualization
The willingness to persistently try to improve oneself and engage in the pursuit of personally relevant and meaningful objectives that lead to a rich and enjoyable life.

3. Emotional Self-Awareness
Recognizing and understanding one’s own emotions.  This includes the ability to differentiate between subtleties in one’s own emotions while understanding the cause of these emotions and the impact they have on one’s own thoughts and actions and those of others.

The objective of this workshop is to strengthen your own sense of self-perception through deepening your self-regard, self-actualization and personal emotional self-awareness.  You will be guided through a series of engaging, introspective and enlightening activities and be given the opportunity to extend your growth and learning beyond the workshop to continue your self-perception development.

This workshop is arguably the most important of the five workshop in the series as it is foundation on which the other four core functions are built upon.

Jan 29, 2019 9:00 AM 000-000 EQ Composite Workshop #2 - Self-Expression Maureen Van Overliw

So you feel like you have a handle on your Self-Perception and would like to enhance your Self-Expression skills?  Welcome to the second workshop in Momentum’s EQ-1 2.0 series, Self-Expression. Self-Expression is not your typical communication skills training. It focuses on three primary areas:

1. Emotional expression
Openly expressing ones feelings verbally or non-verbally.

2. Assertiveness
Communicating feelings, beliefs and thoughts openly, and defending personal rights and values in a socially acceptable, non-offensive, and non-destructive manner.

3. Independence
The ability to be self-directed and free from emotional dependency on others.

The main objective of this training is not necessarily to increase your skills in all three areas but to evaluate how they are occurring in your life and if those skills are helpful or hurtful. Once we identify how those three sub-sets of self-expression are occurring for you, we will begin to develop a personalized development plan to encourage and equip you to modify those areas as you determine most helpful with guidance and support from an EQ-certified facilitator.

Jan 30, 2019 9:00 AM 000-000 EQ Composite Workshop #3 - Interpersonal Maureen Van Overliw

Let’s face it, the dynamics of our world are becoming more and more interpersonal. Whether it’s through enhanced social media, the ability to travel more easily, or an open work space office setting – we can’t escape the ever-increasing importance of our relationships with others. This workshop will focus on the follow interpersonal skill subsets:

1. Interpersonal relationships
The skill of developing and maintaining mutually satisfying relationships that are characterized by trust and compassion.

2. Empathy
Recognizing, understanding and appreciating how other people feel.  Empathy involves being able to articulate your understanding of another’s perspective and behaving in a way that respects others’ feelings.

3. Social Responsibility
Willingly contributing to society, to one’s social groups, and generally to the welfare of others.  Social Responsibility involves acting responsibly, having social consciousness, and showing concern for greater community.

Similar to the other workshops in this series, participants will be encouraged to take stock of how each of the three Interpersonal sub-sets are occurring in their lives and through the facilitator’s guidance and support, to discover opportunities to continue to explore and evaluate these areas.

Jan 31, 2019 9:00 AM 000-000 EQ Composite Workshop #4 - Decision Making Maureen Van Overliw

Many factors influence how we make decisions on a daily basis. This course, the 4th in Momentum’s EQ-i 2.0 series, explores the direct correlation between our emotional intelligence and our decision making. 

We will focus on the following three subsets of Decision Making:

1. Problem Solving
The ability to find solutions to problems in situations where emotions are involved.  Problem solving includes the ability to understand how emotions impact decision making.

2. Reality Testing
The capacity to remain objective by seeing things as they really are. This capacity involves recognizing when emotions or personal bias can cause one to be less objective.

3. Impulse Control
The ability to resist or delay an impulse, drive or temptation to act and involves avoiding rash behaviours and decision making.

Similar to the other workshops in this series, participants will be encouraged to take stock of how each of the three Decision Making sub-sets are occurring in their lives and through the facilitator’s guidance and support, to discover opportunities to continue to explore and evaluate these areas.

Feb 01, 2019 9:00 AM 000-000 EQ Composite Workshop #5 - Stress Management Maureen Van Overliw

Let’s face it – stress is unavoidable and believe it or not, some research suggests that if managed appropriately, stress can be a positive influence in our lives that can enhance our health and our relationship to others! 

This is the final course of the series and will focus on each of these three Stress Management subsets: 

1. Flexibility
Adapting emotions, thoughts and behaviours to unfamiliar, unpredictable, and dynamic circumstances or ideas.

2. Stress Tolerance
Coping with stressful or difficult situations and believing that one can manage or influence situations in a positive manner.

3. Optimism
An indicator of one’s positive outlook on life which involves remaining hopeful and resilient, despite occasional setbacks.

Similar to the other workshops in this series, participants will be encouraged to take stock of how each of the three Interpersonal sub-sets are occurring in their lives and through the facilitator’s guidance and support, to discover opportunities to continue to explore and evaluate these areas.
