Workshops & Trainings

Teams have tough issues. Do you need a fearless facilitator?

Open communication, critical thinking, and listening skills – so-called “soft skills” – are vital tools for every individual, in every team. Plus, effective leadership, teambuilding, and strategicthinking skills – also considered “soft skills” – are critical for supervisors and managers who need to forge high-performance teams that get the job done.

Christie Ward, CSP attests that we earn our jobs based on our technical skills. But we retain (or lose) our jobs based on our communication, leadership, and other “soft skills.” Christie’s communication, leadership, and teambuilding workshops and trainings have been in high demand – and have been delivering results – since 1999.

Thanks to her fearless, consultative approach, Christie is able to tackle your team’s toughest issues. Her confident, relaxed, and engaging style gets teams to open up. Together, the team uncovers the real issues, openly discusses problems, and resolves conflicts. In addition, she teaches actual skills with real-world examples and a high degree of interactivity. With Christie’s facilitation, the team – as a whole – moves forward. When she leaves, the team is stronger, more effective, and cohesive.

How to use Christie to tackle the tough issues, energize your team, and lead them

  1. Book Christie to deliver one of her popular, impactful programs to kick off your staff retreat, half-day workshop, or full-day seminar.
  2. Engage Christie for a customized program for a more effective team. Christie can conduct a deep diagnosis of your team, facilitate open and honest discussions, root out the issues (real and perceived), facilitate as the team resolves the issues, create individual coaching plans, and shift the culture of how people work together.
  3. Be proactive! Ask Christie to present one of her popular programs, so your team members can hone their communication skills – and you can build a stronger team. (Don’t wait until there’s a conflict or lawsuit.)
  4. Hire Christie to lead and direct your strategic planning session, so you can participate with the group.
