Building teal self-awarness

“Everything begins and ends in your mind.” This motto is a good summary of the basis of teal management. In order to create teams, and operate within that paradigm, you need to start with yourselves. In this unit we focus on understanding what teal awareness is, we teach the basic practices in working with our own minds leading to such a view of the world so that teal management flows from within us naturally and spontaneously.

  • Teal communication: Broadly understood communication is the most common mode of interaction that exists between people within a team or an organisation. In this unit we are going to develop the understanding of the principles of communication, and we are going to teach you about specific structures which support cooperation within teal teams.
  • Teal structure of an organisation: For thousands of years, humans have formed organisational structures which enabled cooperation. Each management paradigm resulted in the formation of the necessary structures enabling cooperation. In this unit you are going to study the evolution of organisational structures, you are going to learn about those which brought about teal, and you are going to experience the spontaneous process of organisational structures emergence.

Own energy management

The human body works just like the battery in a mobile phone. After a day’s usage it becomes drained, and at some point sends a message: my power level is at 2%. But we usually miss that point, and we continue draining it. The result? You wake up tired, you have difficulty in getting up, during the day you are absent-minded, drowsy, sluggish… maybe you don’t feel like working, it takes you ages to complete one task, your focus slips away… you begin doubting whether there is any point in what you are doing, whether life itself has any meaning…

Energy is a word which you remember from physics classes, and you rarely associate it with everyday life. And yet that is what lets you light up in the morning, and maintain the same clarity throughout the day. Without getting tired, drowsy, or feeling ill.

To ensure the right level of energy you require supplies from four areas: the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual areas. You need to know which of the areas is failing and why.

In a manager’s work, which is often marked by haste, deadlines, and responsibilities, it is often easy to miss the moment when your personal battery is nearly flat. Very often we only notice the loss of energy when something begins to ache, when we become ill, or when we become burnt out.

Join the workshops to learn which energy areas are worth recharging in your personal and professional life.

Stress management in public speaking

Each public presentation consists of three elements: the factual content, the technical preparation of a presentation, and its delivery for the audience.

The final element consists of our stance, a steady voice, the eyes being directed towards the audience, openness, self-confidence, and being certain that what you are saying is meaningful.

And yet many of us have problems with it. Join our interactive workshops during which from the very start you will engage in exercises and experiencing. Workshops during which we focus on how to cope with stress in public speaking. Where it originates from, and what you can do to avoid undesired sensations. We are also going to talk about how to prepare a presentation to captivate the audience’s attention throughout your speech, how to convey the main points, and make your presentation one which the audience will remember for a long time.

Mental resilience

Mental resilience constitutes the foundation of personal efficiency and can increase it by up to 25%! This means that people with the same experience, competences, and qualifications can function significantly better in a similar environment if they have additional mental resources.

Some of the main components of resilience include self-confidence (in inter-personal relations, and the confidence in your skills), the fact of taking on challenges, dedication and self-determination, an internal sense of control and a pro-active approach, and flexibility when acting under pressure and rapidly changing surroundings.

Mental resilience is a soft quality. We can successfully develop it during training as well as through a proper shaping of our own work environment.

The Mental Strength and Resilience Training using the 7 Cs Method ™ is an original work method the goal of which is to develop the skills for efficient operation under pressure while maintaining one’s proper mental and physical disposition, and good relations with others.

Storytelling in business

Let us start from the beginning: what is storytelling?

It is a response to people being tired of all the boring meetings, presentations oversaturated with content, vague speeches, and sleep-inducing lectures.

We, humans, have been telling stories for thousands of years. Since we were very young we have been taught that way almost everything that is important.

People have noticed that this powerful tool could be used in sales, marketing, public speaking, propagating knowledge, motivating people for action, and many other areas.

When you (skilfully) introduce narration, you increase (or support) your persuasive strength, ensure that people understand the topic, focus the audience’s attention, and build your image as the storyteller.

I myself am a good example of that. I remember when, one day,…

Improvisation in management

This is what Darek Seleman, an instructor and the author of the workshop, said about it:

“Ever since I began appearing publicly, and performing improv shows on stage (where nothing is prepared, and everything is being developed on the fly), and when I later began teaching improv to others, I noticed that people change. They change somewhat by the way and inconspicuously, yet significantly for an observer. I believe that improvisation skills are useful in business all the time.”

The magic of achieving your goals (based on neurobiology, i.e. the science of how our brains function)

Only 3-5% of people are able to execute what they set out to achieve. They know how to get about achieving what they want.

Join them!

We are going to show you how it works and why… the common result is so-so. You are going to learn what to do and how to become successful.

You are going receive specific tools, and you are going to plan the change you wish to introduce. We are also going to verify whether planning a change is good for you…

Though training courses in achieving goals are not a new thing, though there are many books in the market on how to do it efficiently, and people tend to set goals, few succeed. Why is that? Why do we start doing something eagerly but we soon give up? Why, regardless of our huge efforts, the results are nowhere to be seen?

Upon completing this workshop you are going to know more than just why that is. You are also going to learn how to cope with that. We are going to tell you step by step how to be successful in planing and introducing changes! You are going to learn various mechanisms that influence you.

You are going to see, e.g. how the human mind works, and how we ourselves sabotage our actions. Fortunately, we can change it. We are going to show you how.

“The voice as a leader'a unique influence and development tool”

Each day you utter thousands of words, and you touch with your voice dozens of people. And regardless of whether you are getting your morning coffee, or negotiating the details of a multi-million dollar contract, your voice is the carrier of your values, emotions, and identity. Your voice is a remarkable, rich, and unique tool. Working with it consists of, on the one hand, technique and proper projection, which ensure ease of conversing, presenting, and speaking, and enable you to successfully influence your interlocutors without the side effect of tired voice or hoarseness. On the other, it means expanding the awareness of what you offer through your voice for the relations between you and other human beings. Thus, you gain feedback on how you are perceived and whether your intentions are reflected in how you are received.

Multicultural competences training

We all talk with each other yet very few of us know how to communicate – let this be an introduction to understanding the essence of interpersonal and business communication.

The abilities necessary to communicate help shape interpersonal relations, and are the basis of good relationships. An inability to communicate can negatively influence your professional and personal life, and it can lead to dissatisfaction and disappointment.

Regardless of where your colleagues are from: Poland, Europe, America or Asia, regardless of whether you are talking with a client, employee or your boss, what is important is what you say, what vocabulary you choose, which arguments you use, and how you present your opinion. In the case of communication with foreigners, it is extremely important to realise cultural differences. Yet communication is not only done through words. Who you are, how you treat yourselves and your business partners, and your professionalism (or lack thereof) are all communicated at various levels:

through your appearance, stance, clothing choices, the way you look at people, your speech, business card, information material, interview preparation, and knowledge of specific issues. Anyone who wants to be successful in business, to be a successful popular trader, and to have competent employees, should learn the principles of business communication, and intercultural communication in the case of working in international companies.

So what should a wise European know about cultural differences, and their influence on the way foreigners think? We are going to answer those questions during: the intercultural competences training.
