    Social Intelligence for Business

    Unlocking Personal Agility

    Are you maximizing the potential you and your team have in today's fast-paced business word to achieve your vision? Do you want to improve your own team's and your organization's overall productivity? Most leaders recognize that their organization's success is built on the capabilities of other people. They invest in "functional skills" employee training or generic leadership training without considering how to develop the full potential of each person - which is the heart of productivity. 

    Social intelligence in the business world is the realization of this true potential in individuals, teams and entire organizations. 

    ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter is excited to offer Social Intelligence for Business, a four-part program at a substantial discount in partnership with the TRACOM Group. TRACOM is the only company that offers a complete social intelligence solution that enhances organizational performance by developing core aspects of individuals: Behavioral Style, Emotional Intelligence, Agility and Resilience. 

    About this workshop:

    There's a strong connection between Agility skills and workplace performance. Employees who create change are 43% more effective than employees who simply respond to change; Agile companies grow 37% faster and generate 30% more profits.

    What will you receive? 

    A detailed personal assessment in advance of each of of the four workshops that you will use in creating your personal development plan to improve your skills in the workshop area.

    Meals:

    Breakfast and lunch are included.
