Are you an M.I.T. new to
the workplace? Do you find that your degree has given you
a range of technical skills, but
you find the need for enhanced communications and other soft
skills? APEGGA’s M.I.T. Seminars offer a range of soft
skills to help you succeed as a professional.
Five days of M.I.T. Seminars will be presented in Edmonton
(May 11-18) and in Calgary (May 17-21). Strong networking
skills are critical in developing a personal support system
to help you in your career. Debora Rothermel of Ideaworks
will present on this important topic.
Why can some teams tackle difficult tasks and solve complex
problems while other teams are ineffective and largely dysfunctional?
Ms. Rothermel’s workshop on team building will teach
you about four kinds of teams, the four stages of team development
and the role of the team leader. This practical workshop
will focus on the competencies required for more successful
and performance-driven work teams.
All of us are involved in negotiations all of the time whether
it is a lead engineer on a project or as a parent debating
the most appropriate bed-time for our eight-year old. Strategy
and skill are common to all forms of negotiating. Learn from
Ms. Rothermel the key negotiating skills for success.
Enhance your credibility and increase your rate of business
success by learning how to speak comfortably in front of
groups. Leona Munro, an instructor in business and communications
at SAIT and Mount Royal College for nearly two decades, will
provide tips for making more effective presentations.
Leadership skills can make the difference in how quickly
you progress in your new position. You can learn to inspire
and motivate others at all levels. Decision-making and problem-solving
skills are essential to your success in the workplace. Learn
these skills and effective time management in a series of
seminars given by Yvonne Bridges, master trainer specializing
in corporate and employee development.
