The Collective Intelligence Workshop

Team Building and Communication 

“A major reason capable people fail to advance

is that they don’t work well with their colleagues.”

~Lee Iacocca

 

The phenomenon known as “The Group Mind” is interconnectivity that makes collaboration intuitive, turning random groups into a cohesive unit.  In this fun and exciting workshop, your team will laugh with each other while participating in exercises designed to bond even a group of strangers.  Techniques that enhance communication, trust, and respect will evolve their ability to function as team players.

The PIT Master Consulting Program

Complete On-Going Immersion to Develop Master Instincts 

“Creativity is thinking up new things.  Innovation is doing new things.”

~Theodore Levitt

 

The PIT Master Consulting Program turns the skills taught in our workshops into instincts your employees can call upon at will.  Based on your specific needs, our expert consultants will design an immersion program that creates master communicators, speakers, innovators, and an unbeatable team.  The Master Program consists of no less than 8 sessions that cover everything offered in The PIT’s core workshops and more.  This is a commitment only suggested for teams who want to play at the top of their game.

The feedback from students was excellent! This was a great way to kick off the semester. Students felt that the ice was broken, they got to know one another better and learned a new way of communicating. I was very happy with the quality of teachers.

The Newbie Integration Workshop

New Employee Assimilation 

“It’s easy to get good players. 

Getting them to play together, that’s the hard part.”

~Casey Stengel

 

Intimidated and shy are no way to begin a career, and when “time equals money,” the corporate world cannot wait three to six months for new hires to mix with the team.  Learn strategies, exercises and techniques that will instantly integrate and unite even a room of strangers.  This workshop can either be structured for groups of new employees, or it can be organized with both new and current employees to create instant support among the green and the seasoned.

The Number One Fear Workshop

Public Speaking and Presentation Skills 

“People’s number one fear is public speaking.  Death is number two…If you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.”

~Jerry Seinfeld

 

Above poverty and even death, public speaking is ranked as the number one fear of most people.  We are conditioned to constantly be concerned with how we appear and what people think of us, and we often find ourselves in situations where we must speak in front of an audience.  Whether your team uses speaking opportunities to generate business, deliver presentations, pitch an idea, or earn a living through speaking, this workshop will give them the strength to tackle the world’s number one most crippling fear.  Learn how to think quickly on your feet, answer questions on the fly, and speak with confidence and poise.
