Did you know that workshops contain many benefits? This month’s blog will focus on our Training / Education Workshops and how they result in Empowered Leaders & Teams. The exciting thing is that you also create engaged employees through these workshops, which leads to better performance and boosts team and organization success. We’ve shared related training and development content in the past – click here to see them all. This month, we are giving more detail on what sets our workshops apart from others, what we offer, and tips from our team’s real-world experience and education to ensure a successful event.
What makes Success Trek workshops different?
The common notion is that a workshop is a long meeting or educational session designed to create a specialized result. Many relate this to sitting in a classroom or lecture hall, listening to a mind-numbing oratory, or sitting through a “death by PowerPoint” event. And while we have been known to rely on PowerPoint slides throughout a workshop, that is where any similarity ends. Our workshops provide an environment for employee connection and collaborative problem-solving by design. We facilitate and foster conversations; our workshops allow participants the space and opportunity to think and create. Through our facilitation, participants remain on track, conversations are fostered, and new connections within the organization are established. The benefits of a Success Trek workshop result in empowered and engaged leaders and teams.
What workshops does Success Trek offer?
Usual topics include “Receiving and Giving Feedback Respectfully,” “Communicating Using the Four Active Listening Skills,” “Leading Yourself and Others Through Change,” and “Managing Projects and Individual Workload.” However, we have plenty more and can easily customize content to create a single or series of workshops to fit your needs. And while workshops are longer than the typical business meeting and require more preparation beforehand, let us do the “heavy lifting” using our “kit bag” full of workshop topics.
Our tips for a successful workshop:
- Allow ample time for attendance. You may need to adjust workloads to allow participants the time to attend.
- Invite the appropriate participants. Ensure the anticipated workshop result is something the participant needs in their current or future role.
Workshops are a win-win when the topic fits the audience and is designed correctly. They fulfill training or education needs and are one way to engage employees – both lead toward reducing employee turnover and organization profitability.
Success Trek always has participants complete an evaluation after every workshop to help us make our workshops better. Some more recent workshop comments that help support what makes our workshops stand out from others:

•Role-playing drives home the message/techniques.
•Collaborating with other employees.
•Building connections & community among staff.
•Working with others outside of my usual team.
