The world, society, business and our economy are changing rapidly. Expectations for employees and business are evolving due to artificial intelligence (AI) and rapidly evolving organizational culture.  Successful organizations are becoming learning organizations as technology and information is evolving at a record pace.  This program is designed to help you understand the complex world of communications and tools that will help you improve relationships, customer service, conflict resolution, management, marketing and performance.  This program blends best practices from education, business and psychology to help individuals and organizations understand human behavior, communicate, work together, plan and improve performance. 

This workshop uses specific examples from business, local government, and higher education to explain human behavior.  We use the scientifically tested Emergenetics Profile to identify thinking preferences and behaviors.  The participants learn about innovative communication skills by using current examples, understanding advanced concepts, role playing and experiential learning. 

Workshop Objectives:
Participants learn new skills that help them immediately improve relationships & productivity. 

  • Understand your own thinking and behavior preferences
  • Understand how to communicate with other people who have different preferences
  • Develop the ability to build teams with diverse perspectives and preferences
  • Understand internal and external influences that impact self-concept and lifestyles
  • Learn a deeper meaning for culture, subculture, and other factors that impact your beliefs
  • How to communicate for improved relationships professionally and personally
  • Communicate with your team to improve your management skills
  • Working with clients to achieve marketing objectives and sales goals
  • Improve your ability to Listen and to Learn
This program is the foundation for creating a culture of innovation for your organization. Communication is vital to allow Leaders to provide direction to the organization and for Managers to improve productivity. Communication is the foundation for successful learning organizations who will lead in the new global economy. Start now as the world is changing fast.

Emergenetics Profile:
The power behind the Emergenetics® Profile psychometric testing is that it measures patterns of Thinking and Behaving that emerge from your genetic blueprint and life experiences.  Unlike other profiles that merge the patterns into four areas, Emergenetics measures individual preferences over seven attributes.  The participants complete the profiles on-line prior to the workshop.

Key Takeaways of the Emergenetics® Profile
The Emergenetics Model provides an easy to apply visual representation that helps individuals quickly identify preferences.  Customized profile results provide the opportunity to:
  • Increase Team Collaboration By Leveraging Team Member Strengths
  • Manage Communications to Increase Team Engagement & Motivation
  • Improve Meeting Outcomes By Adapting Communication to Emergenetics Preferences of the Team
  • Creating Opportunities to Manage Conflict using Healthy Debate Strategies
  • Increase Ability to Gain Team Buy-In and Commitment

Each participant get their profile, a laminated guide for how to best communication with the differently styles, and their profile on a mouse pad and badge.

Here are a few quotes from prior participants in Everhart & Associates workshops:

Managing a fleet of vehicles can be a complex task, but there are several best practices that can help make it more manageable.

We will discuss best practices and by how regularly reviewing and updating your fleet management plan, you can help ensure that your organization's vehicles are safe, efficient, and cost-effective.

This session will be more oriented to the industry and we will use our software to demonstrate the practices, but it will not be FASTER Training.
