There are 4 work shops, one for each of the 4 competency areas.
Each work shop is 3.5 hours in length. Each work shop can accommodate up
to 16 individuals. Half day work shops can be combined so that
individuals attend for 1, 1.5 or 2 days. Any combination is possible.
We base our work shop fees on a "per participant" cost of $225 Canadian per attendee. Our materials are included. We need a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 16 participants. We will work our a customized arrangement if you want to run more than 1 work shop.
We will also work out a "training for trainers (T for T)" arrangement by which you develop in-house individuals to deliver these core Competency Styles work shops for your staff in future. We have work shop leader materials that we can make available to those individuals.
Our experience indicates that effective work shop leaders need a number of perquisite skills. All of these skills are transferable from one type of work shop to another.
- Excellent presentation skills,
- Effective one-on-one and one-on-group active listening skills,
- Work shop management skills,
- A first level of interpersonal confrontation and conflict resolution skills.
If you currently do not have people with these skills, we welcome the opportunity to work with your potential work shop leaders to develop these skills through a one-on-one coaching or a customized "T for T" program.
Workshops are delivered on client
premises. If room rental
is required, it is billed at cost.
If work shop leaders travel beyond
100 miles (160 kilometers) to and from their offices, travel expenses
are billed at cost.

Can we deliver the Workshops ourselves?
The Competency Styles® work books
were designed to be used independently by motivated adults as a self
development tool. Therefore, they make an excellent addition to education
courses, professional development training programs and coaching
activities for working professionals.
WCI Press supports
individuals who want to use the Competency
Styles® work books in
their client programs. We know that the individuals who deliver
these programs can make a substantial contribution to the richness
of the work book experience for the participants.
See examples of how you can use
the work books in your client programs.
Individuals who choose
to incorporate the work books in their programs normally will
have credentials and experience as an adult educator, an HR professional,
an individual or family counselor, a professional development
trainer, a group process facilitator, or an executive coach.
If you are thinking of incorporating one or more of the work books
in a program you deliver, we suggests that you do the following:
- Work through the relevant work book yourself.

Power Point slides, Group Profile charts ... ... ) are useful
with WCI Press.. We like to know how you are planning
Competency Styles® work books.
We will make the relevant Work Shop
Facilitator's Kit available to you. Since this is a special
order item, you can only get one by contacting WCI Press.
Will you train individuals in our
organization to deliver the Competency Styles® Workshops?
WCI Press maintains relationships with experienced Competency
Styles® work shop leaders. These individuals will deliver
a training-for-trainers program. The participants
in these "training for trainer" programs normally have credentials and experience
as adult educators, HR professionals, individual or family counselors,
professional development trainers, group process facilitators, or executive
coaches. They already have the interpersonal, the training, stand up presentation and the
work shop management skills needed to work effectively with adults in a work shop setting.
We will develop a customized program for organizations, or a number
of collaborating organizations, who want to deliver a Competency
to a larger number of their working professionals. WCI Press will:
- help to make
the initial connection with an experienced Competency
Styles® work shop leader
who will act as a coach/ trainer for your facilitators,
- customize the work books and the Work Shop
Facilitator's Kits to include direct references to your organization's
environment if you want to do so.
