Serenity Consulting offers a series of workshops to improve workplace wellness and team building skills. The workshops offered can be taken as an entire series or any one or few workshops that meet your individual or company needs. It is recommended that companies with these needs take the entire workshop series to maximize the effectiveness of the trainings within the workplace. Serenity Consulting offers “Personal Advantage Service.” This service provides for Sharon to meet with a representative from the contracted company to discuss the company’s training needs in further detail. At this time, a questionnaire will be distributed to employees who will be attending the workshop so that employee needs, concerns, and issues that are relevant to the training can be addressed. The workshop will then be tailored to meet the specific training needs of the contracted company and it’s employees.

This workshop will educate supervisors in leadership skills, giving and receiving feedback, building assertive communication and management skills, setting boundaries, resolving conflict, morale building, managing difficult personalities, performance evaluation, managing the person within the worker, promotion and demotion, hiring and termination and how to be the ultimate role-model for staff.
