Psychological Associates Announces 2017 Workshop Dates

Dec. 15th, 2016

Psychological Associates is pleased to announce the 2017 schedule for our Leadership Through People Skills® training sessions.

 

Leadership Through People Skills (LTPS) is Psychological Associates’ three-day, flagship leadership training workshop. LTPS helps business leaders develop critical skills to:

  • Influence in all directions (direct reports, managers, peers, customers, providers), as well as on teams
  • Promote collaboration and teamwork
  • Resolve conflicts and difficult people issues
  • Motivate for commitment and growth (coaching)
  • Raise levels of trust and respect
  • Articulate the organization’s vision, purpose, and direction.

In LTPS’s learn-by-doing format, executives plan for a real-life meeting they want to have with someone at work, which applies the learning to participants’ real-world work issues. Participants return to their jobs with skills and tools they can apply immediately with insight for working more effectively with everyone around them, an action plan for a successful real-life case resolution, and valuable feedback from their team about improving leadership behavior.

Pam Hager, Ph.D., Psychological Associates’ Senior Vice President of Instructional Consulting, notes, “LTPS helps the learner to harness their communication strengths to effectively resolve issues and reach goals through others.”

The 2017 Leadership Through People Skills public workshop calendar dates are:

  • January 17 – 19
  • February 14 – 16
  • March 21 – 23
  • April 11 – 13
  • May 16 – 18
  • July 11 – 13
  • August 8 – 10
  • September 19 – 21
  • November 14 – 16
  • December 12 – 14

Each public session of LTPS is held at the Charles F. Knight Executive Education & Conference Center on the campus of Washington University. Part of the renowned Olin Business School, the Knight Center is one of the premier training facilities in the St. Louis region, designed to maximize learners’ educational experience.

Commenting on the effectiveness of the Leadership Through People Skills Workshops, Steve Jones, Vice President of US Tower Services and an LTPS graduate, notes, “I thought my management techniques were effective. I thought I ‘knew’ my employees and what motivated them. I couldn’t figure out why we weren’t improving.”

“After learning LTPS, I couldn’t wait to get back to work. The improvements were immediate and tangible,” Jones adds.
