Personal Impact

To achieve excellence as an individual contributor or emerging leader and have a positive, long-term impact on the organization, one must be able to

  • Establish personal credibility through trust and respect.
  • Build productive relationships with others.
  • Effectively manage adversity and change.
  • Consistently act with purpose, principles, and values.
  • Develop self- and social awareness.

The question is how best to access and utilize the internal reservoir of personal talents, attributes, and experiences of team members and leaders so that everyone is making a positive, long-term impact on the business.

The Personal Impact workshop is ideal for individual contributors, emerging leaders, or new leaders who need to develop their ability to influence others and become star employees. The program introduces the critical skills and competencies that people working in modern organizations need in order to be influential, initiate change, manage themselves and their situations, build strong connections with others, and achieve exceptional levels of performance. The workshop focuses on the core skillsets that are essential to having personal impact, and participants engage in extensive self-discovery so they are more aware of their strengths and opportunities for development. Equipped with this knowledge and these skills, they can approach each day and task with greater awareness and a commitment to personal and professional excellence.

Our Approach

We make our learning experiences highly interactive by taking the concepts and skills and converting them into a practical processes and tools that are directly applicable and transferable to the workplace. We provide ongoing development plans and guides so participants can sustain what they have learned. The Personal Impact program includes exercises, case studies, discussions, and assessments to help participants engage in self-discovery and determine how they can personally incorporate the concepts into the way they operate on a day-to-day basis. This methodology allows participants to see when and how they can use the skills and tools, resulting in increased credibility, strong relationships, and better results.

Gallup research indicates that “only 21% of employees strongly agree that their organization is committed to building the strengths of each employee.” The Personal Impact workshop is a way to develop the organization’s talent and communicate the value of having a learning organization.
