SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
This seminar provides a good starting point for ensuring a common base of knowledge throughout an organization concerning these critical topics. Our purpose will be to explore the definitions (legal and practical), full spectrum meanings, and responses to terms like diversity, Afrocentric, affirmative action, racism, cultural competence, political correctness, discrimination, quotas, and goals. Through lectures, open dialogues and small group exercises participants acquire a clear and correct understanding of buzzwords and acronyms while developing thoughtful responses to commonly raised questions about AA, EEO, and Diversity. We end the day by bringing all the pieces together in case study exercises.
Two sections offered:
(1) For non-technical managers and supervisors;

Title–Looking At Race: A Day of Facilitated Discussion
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Most organizations have been observing America’s demographic shifts, but have felt uncomfortable about encouraging forums on the subject. These changes in the American landscape are affecting and will continue to affect: recruitment, hiring, and promotion practices (internally); and market targeting, capture, and expansion (externally.) Competition for workers and markets has gone global, so may the best informed organization win! Despite their enormous effects on so many operational issues, managers have not felt sufficiently empowered to engage in frank, employee discussions about how these changes affect the workplace. An exploration of alternative world views provides a context in which to process the issues introduced into this facilitated dialogue. We will discuss how differences in world views, communication, and conflict management present a unique opportunity to examine the truth about the “other.” Ultimately, this facilitated discourse leads to stimulating, thought provoking enlightenment about cultural myths, their origins, and their impact on the organization.

Title–The Economics of Diversity: It’s a Small, Small (and Very Competitive) World!
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Our examination of diversity moves beyond the moral and legal context to an economic one. This seminar overlays diversity issues against the somewhat narrow parameters of the organization’s “bottom line” objectives. Our goal is to establish the linkage between well managed diversity and the achievement of improved productivity and profitability. We explore the competitive impact of increasingly globalized markets on U.S. based multinationals. Further, we discuss the minuscule growth of the U.S. workforce, the trend toward “downsizing,” and limited advancement and/or promotion opportunities within organizations. Collectively, these issues speak to the need for the maximization of all resources material, technical, and human. Group exercises demonstrate that the productive management of diversity is the effective management of human resources.

Title–Diversity, Productivity and Quality: Exploring the Synthesis
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Diversity, productivity and quality are critical, interdependent components of successful organizations. This assertion is true whether the organizations operate within the public service or the private sector. The traditional, autonomous examination of each issue shortchanges the strategic planning focus potential, as the individuals responsible for these areas usually have very limited direct interaction. Yet, can quality be addressed without a corresponding examination of productivity? In addition, how can productivity be enhanced, a primary stage in the improvement of quality, without addressing issues of diversity? How can cost containment efforts be pursued without eroding quality, productivity and diversity gains? We will address these questions and others in this workshop. The session will provide a holistic perspective of the diversity, productivity, and quality issues affecting government organizations by exploring connections between: diversity and the law; supervisory and decision-making skill development; diversity and productivity within project teams; communication and conflict management and resolution techniques; managing conflict and increasing efficiency and productivity; cost/expense containment and unresolved conflicts, complaints, absenteeism, inefficiency, settlements and awards. The workshop will be intense, informative and highly interactive. Participants are encouraged to share and assist one another in the collective learning process.

Title–Work It! The Critical Components of Customer Service
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Consumer attention to the presence and quality of customer service is at an all time high. Nearly everyone responds better when treated with care and respect. Whether you are a public or private enterprise providing goods or services, support or supplies, tangibles or intangibles, utilizing good customer service is an excellent means of market differentiation. Furthermore, providing exceptional customer service is a great brand marketing tool and loyalty builder two outstanding competitive advantages! Ironically, many organizations minimize the significance of service. In fact, some organizations consistently fail to identify all of their customers and appropriately service them. This oversight is both internal and external in scope, as many organizations never seem to recognize who their real customers are. Aside from the clear-cut example of the external client base, departmental customers do exist (all too often secretly) inside many organizations. How often do internal bottlenecks and riffs occur because exceptional service practices are not in place? What is the resulting economic impact in terms of profit and/or productivity? The benefits of nurturing a workplace culture that believes good customer service starts at headquarters and radiates outward are vast. This course focuses on the four critical components of customer service: courtesy; communication, consistency, and competence. Participants will be able to recognize a customer when they see one and be prepared to delight that customer with service. The seminar features lecture, group activities and a case study exercise.
Open to all employee levels.

Title–Working with the ADA: New Challenges, New Opportunities!
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
The cornerstone of this seminar is an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA. The focus is an informative and provocative assessment of the ADA and its impact on individuals and organizations. Discussions center on the challenges and opportunities presented to organizations as they become more inclusive in their hiring and promotion considerations for the more than 43 million disabled Americans in the potential worker pool. We explore attitudinal obstacles faced by the disabled that frequently are as limiting as architectural obstacles. Participants are encouraged to discuss their concerns and comfort level issues about disabilities and the disabled in an environment that is both instructive and accepting.

Title–Communication & Conflict Management: Pieces in the Diversity Puzzle!
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
As people from different cultural perspectives and world views come together within organizations, successful communication styles can become a challenge. Seminar participants examine the impact of diversity on communication, conflict management and resolution within the organization. The increasing presence of foreign nationals and native-born Americans who learned English as a second language presents another communication challenge. We discuss the reciprocal aspects of effective oral communication, particularly the responsibilities of speaking and listening. We then examine the impact of communication on the ability to manage and resolve conflict. Conflict management styles are introduced and examined from culturally diverse perspectives with the goal of developing a repertoire of resolution skills. Practical team building techniques are emphasized.

Title–Ethical Decision Making
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Ethics and values-based training is critical for teams and organizations wishing to enhance productivity and the quality of work life. All individuals and organizations operate within an ethical framework, whether or not it is clearly delineated. Often, the challenge is not simply dealing with ethical challenges and conflicts when they emerge, but recognizing the intricacies of the conflicts. There are two dominant arenas in ethics: secular and sacred. When individuals who may be operating within sacred or spiritual ethical arenas operate in organizations frequently using secular systems of ethical analysis, conflicts inevitably emerge. This training component focuses on expanding the participants’ knowledge base of both secular and sacred systems of ethical analysis. Ultimately, this leads to a higher level of cross-cultural competency, as ethical analysis frequently is tied to elements of culture. As the base of information about “the other” expands, so does the level of trust and respect within the organization. The focus on trust and respect, as essential aspects of the ethics and values training, will undergird training in communication, conflict management and diversity. Training methodology includes the coupling of presentation information on varied ethical frameworks with discussion and exploration of individual values and belief systems with case studies. The perennial challenge is the dichotomy of identifying and understanding personal ethical views and accepting the fact that individuals within the team may not share them.

Title–Dealing with Ageism: Golden Oldie or Workplace Relic?
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
Those aged forty and over comprise the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Our traditional definitions of middle-aged, elderly, and old now are subject to renewed analysis. These golden oldies are staying in the workplace longer than ever before, because they are living longer, healthier lives, enjoy their work, and, subsequently, need the money. Increasingly, older workers feel they cannot afford to retire and therefore stay in positions that expose them to downsizing and technological obsolescence. All too often, the needs of the business turn against golden oldies and transform them into workplace relics. This is true especially in high-tech environments. Facing the angst of apparent misplaced loyalty, older workers deal with unique work related stress. The increased demands for flexibility, cross-training, mobility and even relocation are stressful particularly for more mature workers. This seminar provides an opportunity for older workers to deal with the aforementioned issues in an atmosphere of concern, encouragement, and support.

Title–Addressing Sexual Harassment and Misconduct
SIN 874-4 (Mgt. Challenge of Change Series)
In June, 1998, the U.S. Supreme Court made two clarifying decisions addressing the interpretation of sexual harassment. The rulings met much public controversy and effectively repositioned sexual harassment as a dominant workplace issue, not an office sidebar. Because people constitute both society and populate workplaces, it follows that societal dynamics and individual differences continually fuel a number of workplace issues. This is no more a new observation than acknowledging the existence of racial, ethnic, gender, class differences. Yet, American workplaces are transforming into congregations of people who often labor in environments of distrust, intimidation, and anxiety. Virtually no workplace is exempt from some aspect of these ills. We have concluded that focusing on compliance with Title VII regulations keeps employers out of court, but does little to improve the workplace for workers. While compliance may save operating costs by minimizing fines, settlements, legal fees, etc., it is not necessarily profitability or productivity enhancing, key performance indicators, respectively, for public and public sector organizations. Is it unreasonable for workers and managers to be guarded in their interactions (peer-to-peer or vertically) due to fear of reprisal rather than respect for the individual? Who is responsible for setting the behavior example? What is the organization’s policy? What is the law? How accountable am I? This training is designed to answer these questions.

Title–Performance Plus: Understanding the Rules of the Game!
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
In organizations, competency is assumed every time a payroll check is cut. The ability to advance through an organization frequently is based on intangibles or unwritten rules of the game. This seminar focuses on the myth of meritocracy, the notion that good works are their own reward. Knowing only the written rules (those items contained in the manuals, procedures, and job descriptions) suggests a significant percentage of the rules remains unknown. Participants explore ways to uncover all the rules, how they apply, the benefits of compliance, and the consequences of non-compliance. As the unwritten rules apply to everyone, albeit to differing degrees, this seminar may be offered in several ways: separately to managers and supervisors in non-technical and technical departments or separately to some or all of the diverse focus groups such as White Men, African-Americans, Hispanics, Older Workers, and Vietnam Veterans.

Title–Influencing Others
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
The most effective influencers are those who know exactly what they want to achieve and can clearly express to others how that objective will be met only with their help. Beyond a strong sense of self, effective influencers know what makes others tick, i.e., what motivates them to action, to join your cause. This course will tap into a variety of skills, notably persuasive engagement. Through the Influencer Assessment, we will identify human elements in each of us that are most receptive to active influence. We will determine the best uses of assertiveness, attentiveness, tenaciousness, and appreciativeness in the influencing process. While not a prerequisite, this training is an excellent primer for our Basic Negotiation Skills course.

Title–Basic Facilitation

Facilitation is the art of shepherding a group discussion through a change process. Frequently, the change represents a shift from dependency to empowerment, thus making the role of facilitator both multi-faceted and quite challenging. This course introduces a facilitation technique structure that ensures consistent, positive results. Basic facilitation is aimed at managers, project leaders, supervisors, and trainers who rely on collaborative processes team meetings, quality circles, focus groups, seminars, etc. to meet performance requirements. Participants will learn specific skill sets germane to facilitation that will address: trust building; effective questioning; active listening; group intervention, time management; conflict/disruption handling; and critiquing.

Title–Basic Negotiation Skills
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
A negotiator is one skilled at striking a favorable agreement to acquire a service or product and/or inducing a position change of another party. Frequently, trickery and deceit are interwoven in the process of forging deals, bad deals. This course emphasizes a methodology for making good deals through a structured negotiation process. This approach is premised on establishing a bargaining strategy before verbal/written engagement, then itemizing negotiating criteria that lead to a successful outcome. Questioning, listening, phrasing, situational analysis, and positioning skills will be covered. The principles learned in this seminar can be used with equal effect in contract talks, dispute resolutions, procurements, budget tie-ups, or even project task delegation impasses.

Title–Time Management
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
If time is equally distributed to all, why does it appear that some people never get caught up while others seem to set productivity records each day? As a finite resource, time must be budgeted much like money. Yet, many of us cannot seem to conquer the tendency to live our personal and professional lives as time spendthrifts. The buck stops at this workshop. Each participant will perform a personal time audit to prove to self the need to take control one’s time. We will proceed step-by-step to establish what tasks will get accomplished and when as well as what will not. The effect of regaining control of our time will be evidenced in greater work efficiency, enhanced personal productivity, elevated senses of accomplishment, and reduced levels of stress.

Title–Effective Mentoring Relationships
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
In virtually every field of endeavor, top performers routinely seek the wise counsel of a mentor. Indeed, establishing effective mentoring relationships in today’s competitive workplace has become crucial to the developmental success of both protégé and mentor. Within this relationship, the person being mentored, the protégé, gains the skills to develop and implement career goals. Simultaneously, the mentor develops stronger communication, influencing and guidance skills. Each party plays specific roles, brings specific characteristics, and shoulders specific responsibilities for the duration of the mentoring partnership. At each phase of the mentoring process, the parties must perform critical cost/benefit analyses not only to determine value, but justify continuation as well. The ultimate purpose of mentoring is to develop reciprocal relationships that enhance opportunities for organizational success for both parties. This course provides frameworks for determining purpose/game plan, analyzing the risks/rewards, defining roles, establishing realistic expectations, and assessing results for both protégé and mentor. In addition to carefully considering the impact these relationships have on mentoring partners and their supervisors, our discussions also will scrutinize the effects on organizational succession strategies.
Open to all employee levels with separate classes for mentors, protégés, and supervisors.

Title–Menspeak Womenspeak
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
This lecture is designed as an overview of the numerous gender-based issues found in the American workplace. The learning expectations are threefold: 1) to understand how gender differences translate into communication style differences; 2) to use that knowledge productively in male/female communications in the workplace; and 3) to address and answer the following questions. What are the communication style differences between men and women? How can we promote better male/female communication at work? Why are men heard more at meetings? Why is information ignored until stated by a man? What is the impact of communication style differentials due to upbringing and culturalization? How do you distinguish real from perceived communication style differences between men and women? How do we define “acceptable” behaviors at work? How do we communicate those behaviors? What is the origin and ideology behind gender-based communication style differences? How does culture impact differences in female/male communication styles? Does style vary between same-sex/gender and different sex/gender conversations? Do men think women speak too softly? Do women need different environments to communicate effectively?

Title–The Team Retreat
SIN 874-4 (Leadership & Personal Dev. Series)
This highly configurable seminar provides a facilitated, structured forum for team leaders and team members to engage each other off-site on personal levels that are unavailable in the everyday workplace. Generally, the format encompasses purpose/theme development, status assessing, personal skill training, and action plan creation. Off-site, overnight retreat locations enhance team development. Additionally, shared meals, group projects, and “down time” fosters team growth. It is during these activities, where team members engage each other at a one-on-one level of trust and respect, that team cohesion is most enabled. The ultimate objective is to increase personal and team productivity and the building of trust through open, direct dialogue. This seminar is particularly effective as a preface for impending organizational or policy changes that benefit from early buy-in of key personnel in advance of implementation.
Open to Executive, managerial, and supervisory personnel.

Title–The Cultural Audit
SIN 874-4
PN&A, Inc. has developed an accurate method of assessing the cultural climates and institutional practices within client organizations. By including mechanisms for capturing and processing individual and group subtleties, this multi-forum method achieves a broader organizational sensing than traditional, single pass, survey instruments. Our process, a three-tiered approach, combines the results of an on-line survey with focus group and individual interviews. Our computer-based survey instrument solicits data and measures perception responses of organizational factors. The on-line survey format allows respondents to input comments directly onto the electronic questionnaire which significantly reduces both data entry error and tabulation turnaround time. PN&A, Inc. gladly accommodates organizations preferring to use paper-based survey instruments. Focus group interviews encourage ethnic, racial, disabled, and gender based groups to explore their mutual interests in the change process. Generally, we target 10 groups Africans & African-Americans, Asians & Pacific Islanders, Disabled, Hispanic & Latino, Middle Easterners, Native Americans, People Over 40, Vietnam Veterans, Caucasian/White Males, and Women. The composition of focus groups is completely elastic and is based upon the client’s view of organization-specific needs. PN&A, Inc. conducts individual interviews with persons representing a 5% “vertical slice” of the total organization population. These individual assessments provide corroborative balance to the survey and group interview data. Data from the survey, along with group and individual interviews, are compiled and analyzed. PN&A, Inc. presents its analysis to Senior Staff, Organizational Development and/or Training representatives to ensure the proper customization of each training program. After delivering the training, we document our findings and recommendations to the organization in a formal, written report. If the agency already has initiated diversity training, The Cultural Audit is an ideal tool to measure program effectiveness. The Cultural Audit is the key to answering the frustrating question, “Where do we go from here?” Since audit data clearly pinpoints and quantifies general population and group-specific issues, the process of developing a viable strategic plan for diversity and other types of training is made much easier.
Open to all organizations.We highly recommend The Cultural Audit as a diagnostic tool for determining the scope of extant issues and the corresponding appropriateness of training applications. It is fundamental to pilot training development and the ultimate roll out of new training vehicles. Assessments, (Surveys/Questionnaires) are billed on the basis of respondents. Interviews and focus groups are billed on a time basis defined under the consultation rate.
