Women and the Workforce
This session will present to your students a brief history of workplace evolution and they will study some women who demonstrated their own brands of leadership style and success. They will then learn basic types of workplace leaders and begin the process of self-identification.
Barriers and Benefits to Women’s Leadership
Here, your students are going to learn about barriers: how to identify them, work with them, and how to turn them into benefits that can strengthen their leadership.
Social and Emotional Intelligence
In this session, learners will survey the history of Social and Emotional theory and be introduced to the five Social and Emotional Competencies. They will reflect on examples of good social and emotional intelligence examples from their own experiences.
Students will use their own reflections and assessments from others to reflect on their strengths and abilities.
Developing Leadership Awareness and Brand
This session is going to introduce ways to identify and develop a personal brand and ‘sell’ it to those who can use your students’ skills to help generate the projects and future they want.
This is where students will learn ways in which women can deliver unique forms of leadership, and how best to maximize the benefits.
Making Good Decisions
Here, students will learn a number of tips they can use to make better decisions and some of the common decision traps. They will also be introduced to the Decision Wheel as a tool in good decision-making.
Creating Your Workplace Philosophy
This final workshop session encourages students to develop a Philosophy Statement and gather other components necessary to draft an Individual Action Plan.
At the end of the course, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
