Process Model is represented by Expectancy Theory. Students will
learn these models of motivation and practice the art of giving
feedback to those they supervise. The class also includes foundations
in communication and active listening theory. This workshop is DMS
certified in Florida.
The lab is intended to be highly interactive. Participants are free
to discuss any questions they have regarding supervisory issues,
special needs and difficult situations. The expertise of the participants
is recognized and valued, sharing is welcome. Participants form
a collective think tank available to problem solve real issues and
difficulties presented by participants.
At the end of the training, the participants will be able to:

workplace; describe role of outcome expectancies and individual
need on performance.

positively impact staff's work performance.
- Identify the impact of meta-communications and the channels of
communication on effective communication about work performance.

group performance issues.
Team Building Programs
In medicine, competition among the members of
an organism is usually considered a disease. In healthy organisms
all of the members cooperate to achieve effective functioning of
the whole unit.
The same principal applies to organizations. All too often members
of a system will choose sides, form cliques or coalitions aimed
at excluding or blocking other members of the system. The greater
the competition among the members of the organization the less effective
it will function.
Success Foundations will develop a program for your organization
designed to stimulate cooperation among the members. Elements available
for this program include:
Sailing Crew experiences
The experiential interventions are coupled with debriefing and training
