Preparing for a Presentation: Creating ‘Power-Packed’ Slides By Sri Devi Panchacharam
Here’s the hard reality- if you want to be noticed, and climb the corporate ladder with confidence and finesse, top notch presentation skills are imperative. Even some veteran managers squirm uncomfortably at the term ‘presentation’ despite the years of experience and knowledge about the subject matter. Presentation slides have not evolved since 1998 and many still tend to use overly colourful themes, cliparts and overload their slides with information.

One of the unique areas of this workshop is assisting the attendees to recognise the common errors made by most presenters which adversely impacts their presentation, and this starts with planning for the presentation slides and designing them. Upon implementation, they would realise that they may have been doing it wrong all the while! Hence, this training programme is designed very thoroughly to  get the participants to understand fundamental presentation concepts and to master the right skills needed to reduce the level of nervousness which plagues them every time they are about to speak publicly.

Handling Full Set Of Accounts/Book-Keeping Skills Workshop By Gerald Peries A/L V. A. Peries

This workshop would enable new as well as existing accounting staff, admin staff and secretaries to appreciate and understand the steps in the accounting process, from source documents to the preparation of financial statements. Knowledge in these areas will enable them to be more effective at their job functions.

In today’s computerised accounting environment, accounting staff perform very specific duties as part of the accounting function.  They may be involved in one specific area like handling accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, cash book, general ledger, etc.  As a result, they are often very focused in their respective areas but may not be aware or knowledgeable of the other important areas in accounting.

With the advancement of computerised accounting packages, the accounting process is somewhat isolated and as a result these staff do not see the physical transaction actually taking place.  This may lead to a lack of understanding of the accounting process.  A thorough knowledge of the accounting process will enable the staff to better understand the process thus contributing more effectively to the organisation.

This workshop is also suitable for administration staff, secretaries and other clerical staff who performs some basic accounting functions but have limited knowledge of accounting.

Creative & Innovative Thinking Skills Using Neuro-Linguistic Processing (NLP) Workshop By Tee Keng Chai, Casey

NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Processing, is a set of inter-and-intra-personal communication techniques first developed by psychotherapist Richard Bandler and linguist John Grinder (who worked together under the tutelage of British anthropologist Gregory Bateson). It’s purpose was to discover the linguistic underpinnings of mental states and how they affect our behaviors, and to later use this knowledge to modify our habits. It can be practiced through introspection (now more scientifically known as metacognition) or guided conversation.

Specifically, the goal of NLP is to model how others think and behave, including those who are creative. What are the strategies a so-called “creative person” plays out in their heads? What is the structure of their experience, and what mental steps do they take before producing a creative outcome? Or, is it all spontaneous? And if so, how does one increase the chances of such a spontaneity occurring? These are the types of questions an NLP practitioner would ask.

“A dreamer without a realist cannot turn ideas into tangible expressions. A critic and a dreamer without a realist just become stuck in a perpetual conflict. A dreamer and a realist might create things, but they might not be very usable ideas without a critic. The critic helps to evaluate and refine the products of creativity.”

So the main question is: throughout the creative process how can we develop each of these roles? The answer Dilts provides says that we should set aside a time and place for each of these mental attitudes:

1. First put yourself in the role of The Dreamer. Write down any and all ideas that come to mind. Make as many freely associated connections as possible, let your thoughts just flow without any limitation or worry on how to put these ideas into action.

2. Next put yourself in the role of The Realist. Now ask yourself, “How can I put these ideas into a reality? What resources (money/time/skills) do I need?” Write these down.

3. Then put yourself in the role of The Critic. Now it is time to try and find the flaws of your strategy. What don’t you like? What potential obstacles are there? What needs improvement? Write these down.

4. Now step outside your triangle of roles. Observe your reaction to each – are you being a good Dreamer, Realist, and Critic? How can you improve each?

5. Cycle through each role again. Using any insights from #4, cycle through the roles again, this time being an even better Dreamer, Realist, and Critic.

6. Take your ideas to action Do the above as many times as needed until you can begin putting your ideas to action. Even as you carry out your plan, keep these three elements in mind at all times.

Whether you are a new or an experienced staff, the Creativity and Innovative Skills Using NLP workshop are designed to enable you to develop the critical core abilities essential to success. Learn how to manage all aspects of completing analytical work assignments using effective strategies and approved work formats in order to meet organizational missions, management visions, and customer expectations.

Dealing With Customers' Complaints, Frustrations & Dissatisfaction By Aslini Abdullah

Managing Complaints. It seems everyone is talking about customers. Some of the reasons as to why poor service is still a major concern of most organizations are as follows:

Few people have been trained to pay attention to the second half of today’s jobs - the people part. They have invested their time and energies in the technical aspects. They have not been trained to handle the complications of making sure their work is valuable to others.

People have not been conditioned or encouraged to treat people inside of their own organization as customers. Without the support and cooperation of “internal” customers (colleagues, employees, bosses, and other departments) it is difficult to satisfy those we commonly view as our “real” customers (those who use our services). Satisfying “internal” customers provides a vital link in the chain that leads to satisfying customers outside of the organization.

People often don’t realize that working hard is not the same as satisfying customers. As a result, people often work hard and are frustrated because customers (internal or external) remain unsatisfied.

As such the main aim of this workshop is concentrating on how to satisfy the needs and wants of customers effectively.

Get Out Of The Box & Think Creatively Workshop By Sri Devi Panchacharam

In our complex and fast changing world where the focus is always on how business and its processes can be improved. It is not uncommon to see changes made for the better almost on a monthly basis in certain organizations. Executives and leaders are expected to think on their feet, and emerge with brilliant ideas as and when required, which might be a challenge to most. “Off-the-shelf” or standard thinking is just not enough! To survive the cut-throat corporate world, creativity and differentiation is the key to find innovative solutions to difficult problems and make decisions in an environment in which there are lots of unknowns.

How many of us have said “I am not the creative kind…”, especially when faced with tasks that require a degree of creativity. The fact of the matter is, creativity, in the business world at least, can be honed with awareness, knowledge and practice. It is a skill which can be learnt- at any age. Once you’ve learnt the pre-requisites and understand how it applies to you, the next step would be to organise the thinking methodically, and then move on to the action phase. And this is precisely what this programme is going to help you do, and it will be a lesson learnt for life.

Understanding & Managing Challenging Behaviours at Work By Sri Devi Panchacharam
The modern workplace places many demands on the management team, not least the need to treat ‘difficult’ employees with the same care and respect afforded to those who are less demanding. Recognising and understanding the cause or causes of this behaviour, and the leader’s self-awareness of their own behaviour and its impact, are vital in the fight to create a working environment where everyone is treated equally and are afforded the same opportunities.

The leader’s ability to recognise and respond in a timely and appropriate manner to this behaviour is essential if s/he is to create a working environment where the skills of all may be utilised to the benefit of the individual, the team and the business. The workplace has many people - each of us unique. We all have the right to have our uniqueness respected. When we are brought together the possibility of tension developing between us is increased due to our unique interpretation of events, conversations and other non-verbal forms of communication.

Although a diverse workforce is a strength, it can also be a cause of tension in the workplace when it hasn’t been managed effectively. The Manager who recognises the relationship between an apparently ‘difficult’ employee and the influence of the working environment on their behaviour is a leader with the ability to reduce the impact of ‘difficult’ behaviour on themselves, their staff, customers and the wider business

Effective Strategic Thinking, Planning & Implementation Workshop By Tee Keng Chai, Casey

Strategic Thinking  is your chance to look into the future and decide what you want your company to be like and then place that vision into the context of where you are now. A strategic plan provides the direction to your desired future. By adding action plans and clarifying questions to your strategic plan, you create a map for reaching your vision.Along the way, you further clarify your vision and goals by identifying your company's values, mission, and vision statements. You create processes and structures that support your strategic plan. And most importantly, you drive improved financial results and bottom line growth by understanding and fully leveraging your financial systems. Bottom line, by operating from a strategic perspective, corporate managers  realize more focus on their goals, more alignment in their actions, and greater productivity overall which results in increasing profits.

Strategic Planning is a management tool that helps an organization focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future.

Finally, the Implementation  is about fundamental decisions and actions because choices must be made in order to answer the sequence of questions mentioned above. The plan is ultimately no more, and no less, than a set of decisions about what to do, why to do it, and how to do it. Because it is impossible to do everything that needs to be done in this world, strategic planning implies that some organizational decisions and actions are more important than others - and that much of the strategy lies in making the tough decisions about what is most important to achieving organizational success.

Developing High EQ for Better Performance at Work By Sri Devi Panchacharam
We’ve always been moulded to believe that emotions have no place in an organisation.  Most of us are not strangers to the phrase “leave your emotions at home”, however recent scientific discoveries have proven that our thoughts and emotions are interwoven. Fundamental skills on handling emotions, managing conflicts amicably and working successfully with everyone are skills that can be constantly improved on. Human competencies such self-awareness, self control, listening skills and empathy has become compulsory in the corporate world today.

John Mayer and Peter Salovey’s ground-breaking research on Emotional Intelligence in the 1990s further strengthened the notion that EQ is as valuable as IQ. These days many perceive EQ to rank more important than IQ as it encourages healthier self-management and motivation, trustworthy relationships and productive work environments. 

This programme covers several exciting modules which are aimed to leverage on participants EQ which empowers them to become greater assets to their organisations.  This highly interactive and hands-on workshop is catered to add value to relationships at work, solve-problems whilst considering the organisational pulse, and achieving goals for overall personal and business success.

Customer Recovery Skills To Handle Difficult, Challenging & Demanding Customers By Aslini Abdullah
Some customers are more difficult to deal with than others. Few customers are inherently rude or mean, although some may be. Usually when a customer is mad, rude, challenging or otherwise difficult to help, there is a reason.

The fact of the matter is that most customers are great. They are friendly, understanding, and tolerant. They are also knowledgeable, demanding, conscious of the value of their time, and hold high expectations for quality of product and service. You as service providers should never take these customers for granted.

Even when customers are wrong or difficult you must respect their perception and treat them with respect.

Professional Etiquette & Grooming Workshop By Sri Devi Panchacharam

Etiquette comes from a Latin word, which means “to attach” and that is exactly the objective of this training programme: to get people; clients, colleagues, employers alike, attached to your highly professional and exceptional work behaviour. This two-day intensive programme will cover many crucial aspects of business etiquette, chiefly the fundamental knowledge of business etiquette, the power of professional image, the impact of communication, interpersonal skills and the art of meal meetings.

It is true that professional business etiquette will not be able to make up for technical knowledge and expertise of a job, but it weights just the same in terms of importance. It may seem unjust, but we ARE judged based on our appearance. The good news is, this is an area which we can take charge of and groom to perfection, resulting in positive career outcomes. Excellent etiquette boosts one’s confidence whilst enhancing the corporate brand. When it comes to sealing a deal, professional etiquette can very well be the differentiating factor between success and failure. This course focuses on real-world scenarios and is packed with hands-on learning activities to reinforce learning points and improve the levels of professionalism of all participants.

Multiply Your Productivity At Work Efficiently & Effectively By Aslini Abdullah
Productivity is an essential element towards achieving company’s objectives. A typical successful organization will always reward advancement to those who are able to achieve and exceed desired results. It is not surprising, those who are only able to achieve minimum standards will be identified for something less in the company.

The normal concern is how do we increase productivity with the existing resources? If it is left unattended, we are definitely looking at inefficient and ineffective human capital.

In order to achieve the desired results within the shortest possible time will lead to managing and organizing ourselves.

With proper managing of self, superiors, communications and relations, prioritizing of work and decision-makings, anyone can achieve a desired output and ultimately have a sense of accomplishment.

Excellent Procurement Management Workshop By Devindran A/L Raju
Procurement has taken on greater strategic importance in multinational companies in recent years. Procurement is in fact an absolutely essential function within any business and is vital if a business is to succeed, especially in the light of economic downturns and the recession. Many decisions taken by departments have a procurement implication that can impact on the overall cost of carrying out the decision.

Procurement is viewed as a strategic function working to improve the organization's profitability.  Procurement is seen as helping to streamline processes, reduce raw material prices and costs, and identifying better sources of supply.  In essence, helping to reduce the ‘bottom line’. Procurement is also a complex process that can help businesses to become more efficient because all goods and services that they buy will be of the right quality, quantity, price and they will be delivered ‘just in time’, thereby reducing the need to stockpile goods and parts.

This course is suitable for staff of all grades that require knowledge and skills in   operation or management of procurement. . This also extends to other department personnel who have some purchasing responsibilities and would like to increase their knowledge and skills in this area.

Creative Thinking, Problem Solving & Decision Making Workshop By Sri Devi Panchacharam

In our complex and fast changing world where the focus is always on how business and its processes can be improved. It is not uncommon to see changes made for the better almost on a monthly basis in certain organizations. Executives and leaders are expected to think on their feet, and emerge with brilliant ideas as and when required, which might be a challenge to most. “Off-the-shelf” or standard thinking is just not enough! To survive the cut-throat corporate world, creativity and differentiation is the key to find innovative solutions to difficult problems and make decisions in an environment in which there are lots of unknowns.

How many of us have said “I am not the creative kind…”, especially when faced with tasks that require a degree of creativity. The fact of the matter is, creativity, in the business world at least, can be honed with awareness, knowledge and practice. It is a skill which can be learnt- at any age. Once you’ve learnt the pre-requisites and understand how it applies to you, the next step would be to organise the thinking methodically, and then move on to the action phase. And this is precisely what this programme is going to help you do, and it will be a lesson learnt for life.

Accounting Skills For Accounts Clerks & Assistants Including GST Entries Workshop By Gerald Peries A/L V. A. Peries

This workshop would enable accounting staff to understand and appreciate the steps performed in the accounting process and their contribution to management decision making.

In today’s computerised accounting world, accounting staff may perform very specific duties as part of the accounting process.  They may be involved in one specific area like handling accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, cash book, etc.  As a result, they are often very focused in their respective areas of work that they may not be aware or knowledgeable of the other important areas in accounting.

With the advancement of computerised accounting packages, the accounting process is somewhat isolated and as a result these staff do not see the physical transaction actually taking place.  This may lead to a lack of understanding of the accounting process.  Knowledge in these other areas of accounting will enable the staff to contribute more effectively to the organisation.

The accounting staff should also be aware of the types of decision made by management like performance evaluation, budgeting and managing working capital.

An understanding of these management decisions would enable them to appreciate how their functions and information they provide fits into the overall objectives of the organisation.

Staying Positive In A Challenging Working Environment By Aslini Abdullah
To develop staff towards effectiveness through personal goal setting and to instill confidence and positive values thus portraying the right personality of a corporate organization

A solid foundation of high self- esteem enables us to build a solid lifestyle- relationships, career, parenthood, sporting achievements and any other aspects of living that we value. Without a high level of self-esteem, all these other aspects of our life are on a shaky foundation and can too easily fall down around us. A healthy self-esteem leads to quick and effective decision-making, and ability to deal with all sorts of change in life and to stick up for own rights and what we believe in.

The Excellent Strategies To Manage The "Y Generation" In The Workplace By Tee Keng Chai, Casey

Many are confused or disappointed by the “Y Generation”. They are so much different than “X Generation”. Are you frustrated by young workers who feel entitled to success, need constant praise, want everything to be “their way” and may even dress like vagabonds?  Are you struggling to attract and retain a generation of workers whose commitment seems more temporary than permanent?

This is “Generation Y”, a workforce of as many as 70 million, and the first wave is just now taking their place in an increasingly multigenerational workplace.
In this workshop, we’ll show you how to motivate and manage “Generation Y”. You’ll learn what makes them tick, how to retain them, and make them productive and energized.

This is the only workshop of its kind and is driven by the most intense study ever conducted of “Generation Y” in the workplace. Whether you’re a senior executive, an HR leader or a manager, this seminar will give you the specific tools to attract and retain the workforce of the future.

By the way, “Generation Y” really isn’t so bad (and managed properly, can be extraordinarily productive). You just have to know what makes them tick and understand how to leverage that insight to make them productive and engaged employees.

This workshop will give you the specific strategic and tactical tools to attract, retain and manage “Generation Y”.

Managing Talent In The 21st Century Workshop By Pagadala Cyril Papiah

Do you match talents-to-jobs or jobs-to-talents?
 
All managers and executives need to have subordinates with the right talents to be more effective in achieving organisation’s goals. On the other hand in order to be effective employees or talents need to be managed with the right talent management practices.

While the specialized talent manager in the HRM function carries overall responsibility for talent management in the organisation, in the 21st century due to decentralization every manager and executive is also required to have a working knowledge of talent management practices as they are responsible for the success or failure of their own business units or departments.

This is an A-Z workshop covering all the core areas of talent management and is fully workshop oriented.    
 
As knowledge of talent management is critical to the career development and success of managers and executives, this workshop is of particular relevance to managers and executives from diverse backgrounds who have little or no exposure to people and talent management.

Handling Payroll According to Malaysia Laws + Final Tax Workshop By Pagadala Cyril Papiah

The main reason why employees work is because of wages. Employees expect employers to pay wages according to the agreed terms in the contract of employment.

Handling Difficult Customers: The Effective Methodology By Aslini Abdullah

Some customers are more difficult to deal with than others. Few customers are inherently rude or mean, although some may be. Usually when a customer is mad, rude, challenging or otherwise difficult to help, there is a reason.

The fact of the matter is that most customers are great. They are friendly, understanding, and tolerant. They are also knowledgeable, demanding, conscious of the value of their time, and hold high expectations for quality of product and service. You as service providers should never take these customers for granted.

Even when customers are wrong or difficult you must respect their perception and treat them with respect.

Prioritizing & Planning For Great Work-Life Balance Workshop By Sri Devi Panchacharam

It is an unavoidable fact that, at various stages in our lives, we will find ourselves in the stressful situation of having too much to do in too little time. The one thing which tends to happen when we have work overload is that we neglect to manage our time properly.  Real life takes over and we think we no longer have time to manage our time!  Yet it is at times like this that excellent time management skills are needed the most.

Prioritising and planning are crucial elements required by everyone in their business and personal life. Without planning your time and prioritising what is important to you, it is impossible to identify with the activities that are most productive. Where we are not focused on the elements that make us effective, we can begin to waste time and energy on the myriad of mundane tasks that tend to appear and this can lead to stress and anxiety.

This workshop will provide you with an awareness of the areas that you can improve in your day to day planning, as well as giving you some tips for dealing with popular time management issues.

Shipping Procedures, Documentation & INCOTERMS 2010 Workshop By Devindran A/L Raju


Knowledge of import and export procedures is a key part of the supply chain process. Various types of documentations are involved in export & import activities. In processing the export consignment, documentation may be executed in up to four contracts: the export sales contract, the contract of carriage, the contract of finance and the contract of cargo insurance. It is therefore important to understand the role of each document and its requirements in international trade.

Exporter/Importer are also required to comply the documentary requirement of exporter /importer and his country. These requirements also keep on changing. Irregular documents creates problems and result into delay in delivery of the goods.  Incoterms are authoritative rules for determining how costs and risks are allocated to the parties and can significantly reduce misunderstandings among traders, thereby minimize trade disputes and litigation.  

This workshop will provide a complete and comprehensive insight into import & export procedures. The workshop will suit both beginners and those who have more than a basic understanding of import regulations.

Mentoring, Coaching & Counseling Workshop By Aslini Abdullah

Mentoring is a process in which a more skilled or more experienced person, serving as a role model, teaches, sponsors, encourages, counsels and befriends a less skilled or less experienced person for the purpose of promoting the latter’s professional and/or personal development.

Mentoring functions are carried out within the context of an ongoing, supportive relationship between the mentor and mentee.

Counseling and coaching are skills that can be learned through persistence and patience. If you have a sincere desire to develop and support others and the self-discipline to practice the specific strategies, you can become proficient in these areas.

The rewards from improving your counseling and coaching skills are many. In our professional life, we can use these skills to create optimal working conditions which include: proper orientation and training for employees, establishing clear responsibilities and standards, providing appropriate guidance and support during times of transition and insuring increased motivation and productivity through effective feedback.

Effective Interviewing Skills & Investigation Techniques Workshop By Aslini Abdullah

Most managers think they are good at interviewing. But it is not easy to do well. Researchers have shown, over and over again, that interviewers fail in their task because they make up their minds too early, fail to collect all the relevant information or don’t evaluate systematically what has emerged from the interview.

Furthermore, interviewers rarely get evidence that any of their rejected candidates would have been a better choice. So- unless the person they do appoint turns out to be obviously incompetent-they are rarely prompted even to reflect on their mistakes.

Nevertheless, interviews continue to be the most common method of selecting new staff. So it is worth thinking about how to avoid the major pitfalls.
