Certified Generational Specialist

Business is changing at a rapid pace and the workforce is more diverse than ever with five generations represented. As a result, organizational leaders are increasingly confronted with challenges due to the differing mindsets, work styles, and communication styles.

To prevent and overcome these challenges, trainers, consultants, and coaches need to enhance their knowledge, tools, and resources to better align with the needs of the diverse workforce.

Helping you to Become Winners in a NEW Game

“Life is like a ten-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use.” – Charles Schulz, cartoonist

disc-wheel The Game has Changed…

  • Competition has increased
  • The workday is longer
  • Change is constant
  • Customers expect more for less
  • Do more with fewer people

Renaming the players doesn’t work. . . Organizations have tried calling

  • Employees “associates”
  • Work groups “teams”
  • Managers “coaches”

Many were just imitating strategies of successful companies—but without the commitment or training successful organizations use. Here’s what does work. . . Competitive Edge teaches people how to understand each other

  • Executives understand subordinates and peers
  • Team members learn to trust each other
  • Better customer awareness

Once you understand, you can win! Corporations that understand their people:

  • Realize higher performance
  • Have happier customers
  • Have healthy and loyal employees

Our Training Programs can be customized

  • Creating high performance teams
  • Leadership and management skills
  • Adapting to change
  • Improving communication
  • Understanding “what makes people tick”
  • Teaching managers “how to play nice in the sandbox”
  • Time management
  • Reducing conflict and stress
  • Sales training

Are You a True Leader or Just Out for a Walk?

86531666 “A leader is someone whom you choose to follow to a place you would not go by yourself.” – Joel Barker

Program Overview For centuries philosophers, psychologists, military leaders, educators, executives, and theologians have tried to identify why some people can get people to follow them and others cannot. What are the qualities leaders have that cause people to TRUST them?  Competitive Edge, Inc. believes this quality is called the “endorsement factor.”  We have isolated five critical factors necessary to earn endorsement and five factors required to increase yours.

Understanding the Motivators Model

78155249 “People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.”  – John Maxwell

Program Overview In order to foster “esprit de corps,” most experts believe that individuals on any team need to understand themselves and their fellow team members in order to form the foundation required to build trust. A team without trust is just a group and will never achieve their optimum potential.  The Personal Motivation and Engagement report determines each individual’s passion, the drive behind each person’s behavior, which we call their “hidden motivators.”

Program Outline

  • Understanding “Hidden Motivators”
  • How to use the Motivators Model
  • Experiential exercise for reading the motivators of others
  • Discussion about appreciating differences
  • How to blend DISC and Motivators for more effective interaction
