Solutions

  • Team Building

    Today’s society is grounded in individual achievement. While this mindset has empowered many people to do great things, it ignores a fundamental life skill: how to work well with others. The result? Detrimental effects in the workplace, like duplicated efforts, miscommunication, conflict, and errors.
    But effective teams promote a diversity of perspectives and ideas, generating creative momentum. They develop creative solutions to complex problems and discover innovative approaches. Teamwork facilitates effective communication and creates synergy, where energy and ideas between people tap the creative resources of the entire group.
    Building teamwork is a process that takes time and removes individuals from the traditional hierarchical structures, pulling them out of their comfort zone. Just because you organize workers into teams doesn’t mean they will truly be working together. They can, you just have to show them.

  • Leadership Development

    Leadership in your company influences the success of every employee. Leaders can make a difference in their company by providing professional development initiatives to engage employees in customized training and development. KEYGroup® has leadership skill assessment tools and training for every type of organization. We offer numerous customizable systems that will meet your needs. For over 30 years, clients have chosen us because we deliver results in areas of an organization that need to be refocused.

  • Conflict Resolution

    When managed properly, conflict can actually contribute to team and organizational success. But it doesn’t happen overnight. The key is using effective communication and problem-solving techniques to turn conflict situations into creative opportunities for growth.

    Participants in our Creating Constructive Conflict workshop leave with the ability to resolve conflict situations that arise on their teams. Turning a lose-lose conflict into a win-win resolution not only resolves the existing issue, but prevents new ones by opening strong lines of communication. You’ll also reap the benefits of increased productivity, improved synergy, and more effective results.

  • Communication/Presentation Skills

    Poor communication leads to errors and missed opportunities, which never advance organizational success. Stellar communication skills can be learned, and we can help. That’s why we offer Communicating Your BEST, a one-day workshop that teaches the specific skills and techniques necessary for leadership training and effective communication. In this workshop we cover:
    * Understanding Communication Styles
    * Learning to Influence Others
    * Recognizing “Hot Buttons”
    * Responding to difficult questions
    * Delivering effective presentations

  • Performance Management

    Let’s face it…traditional employee performance reviews don’t work.

    Unfortunately, too many managers view them as a necessary evil—an interruption in an already too busy routine. It often becomes a once-a-year, check-the-box activity, rather than a summary of the coaching and feedback discussions that should have occurred throughout the year.

    Done properly, performance reviews allow you to develop your existing workforce, shape the culture of your organization, and get more things done.

    By using KEYGroup’s systematic approach, effective leaders clarify their expectations and motivate employees to achieve optimal performance levels. Using this approach is also an excellent way to support talented employees and cultivate future leadership.

  • Keeping the Millennials

    Managing multiple generations is challenging. But not managing them properly is a sure-fire way to bring your company’s progress to a screeching halt. Do you really want to deal with misunderstood communication and the mistakes it breeds? Do you want to lose valuable input from talented employees? How do you feel about high-volume turnover?

    Those employees newer to the workplace often feel that leaders focus on their lack of experience and don’t appreciate their efforts, while more mature generations can feel that newer employees lack respect and a traditional work ethic. Though the values and attitudes of each group can vary greatly, you don’t want to promote misconceptions, biases, and inherent conflict. If you aren’t putting any effort into finding and working with the unique strengths of each generation, you’re missing out.
    Our Managing Multiple Generations in the Workplace leadership training workshop helps teams identify generation gaps in your workplace while capitalizing
