The Power of Influence….C.A.R.E.

The philosophy begins when the employee accepts responsibility for the position he/she is in and uses that position to influence others in a positive way. The session presents components of Customer Service (Communication, Attitude, Respect, Enthusiasm) and reinforces the ability to influence in each one of these areas.
Value and Respect are due all people, regardless of differences in age, gender, faith, economic level, education, etc. This session presents diversity training in a highly interactive, non-threatening, self-exploratory manner! The session includes numerous exercises and discussions on the benefits of diversity in the workplace and the goal of F.A.I.R. (Fairness, Awareness, etc.) as we interact with others.

Everyone has the same amount of time in a day, some people just use that time more efficiently than others. How can you maximize your day? How can you relieve stress by organizing your day and responsibilities? This seminar will provide helpful steps in all of the above.
There are two types of employees - "Can't do the job" (haven't been trained or equipped) and "Won't do the job" (attitude issues). With the "Can't do" employees we train and equip them until they are confident and prepared. But how do we as managers and supervisors resolve the "Won't do" employees? This session will provide information on attitude issues and a specific model to follow when confronting employees. Opportunities to discuss these issues with peers will be provided during the session.
They intimidate, hassle, undermine and terrorize fellow employees. In doing so, they reduce the level of productivity and run off valuable employees. As a supervisor, how do we supervise the office bully? As a peer, how do we confront the office bully? This seminar will discuss common traits of the office bully and provide proactive steps in dealing with the bully in a professional and proactive manner.
Customer Service … the Next Step!
In C.A.R.E. Customer Service we discussed the four components of quality Customer Service (Communication, Attitude, Respect, Enthusiasm) and the influence each one of us has in each of these areas. Customer Service II takes the next step by digging deeper into the ‘challenges’ of customer service – employee buy-in, difficult customers, and service preparation. We will discuss these in detail and ‘practice’ our skills on actual customer service cases. This seminar is education with practical application!

Once again Charlotte did an absolutely amazing job. Our students were grateful for her heart, passion, and energy as she expressed the power of communication and vision to them on Tuesday night. She is always a breath of fresh air and I am honored to know her. We look forward to working with her in the future.
We all really appreciated and enjoyed what Charlotte had to share. One is truly able to observe how passionate she is about Diversity which makes a big difference in how the message is received. I wish the whole world had an opportunity to sit in on one of Charlotte’s classes. UCA is very lucky to have her on its team!
