PARENTING: ADJUST YOUR PARENTING STYLE

UP THE CORPORATE LADDER:

Professionalism In The Workplace

by Elsabe Manning

A practical guide to what true professionalism and competence entails, this book guides one through all manner of business interactions, from how to conduct oneself professionally while meeting with people from other cultures to the often overlooked rules of e-etiquette. Topics include: time management, networking, self-sabotage, travel etiquette and dressing for success.

TESTIMONIALS

The course presented by Elsabe to our front-line staff who deal with customer relations issues on a daily basis was filled with insight and assisted greatly in enhancing staff attitudes and behaviour, to be more professional in the workplace. Special mention has to be made of the personal and interactive style in which the course is done, which staff not only enjoyed, but also related to very well. Standard Bank would recommend the course to any Business who wished to achieve a higher understanding of what professionalism is about, and what it is not. Perfect grounding material for an improved image for staff who deal with customers every day.

Barbara Cleary – Standard Bank

I am an executive of a listed company in Johannesburg and must admit that I was nervous and felt very vulnerable at the prospect of running a workshop like this. I knew that there were a number of issues to resolve around my leadership and that there were team members who simply tolerated me and barely spoke to each other. We needed someone we could trust to help us rebuild the strong relationships we once had so that we could start trusting each other and move forward as a team again. Elsabé is amazing. She created a safe environment for everyone to speak without fear of consequences. She helped us to rebuild the team through open communication and real collaboration so that we are once again totally commitment to each other and the organisation. We left the workshop having set team goals and objectives which are aligned to the organisation’s goals and objectives. Thank you Elsabé. We couldn’t have done it without you.

FORGIVENESS – UNBURDEN YOURSELF!

This workbook will guide you to do the work needed to unburden yourself and to let go of a painful event and to release yourself from trauma and emotional suffering. Anger, bitterness, hatred and resentment can destroy you and it changes who you are. Perhaps you have very good reason to hate and resent the person who have harmed you, and you may believe that they are suffering because you hate and resent them but the truth is that you are the only one who is suffering. This course was designed to help you take your power back from those who have hurt you and it teaches you how to ask for forgiveness when you have wronged someone.

This is the most perfect gift for someone who is still hurting from a painful event.
