2-Day Coaching for Performance Course

Most organizations would say that their company has a “coaching culture” and that the number one priority of its team leaders is to coach. However, studies show that number of centres where this is a reality is very low. It comes as no surprise that those centres which do have a real coaching culture have the lowest attrition, the most motivated staff and the best at satisfying the demands of their customers.

Staff job descriptions almost always include the fact that they do coaching. However, upon further probing, we consistently discover that the quality and quantity of coaching are inadequate for producing the results that would be expected from an effective coaching program.

Customer Success Strategy Course

Every touchpoint throughout the customer journey – whether B2C or B2B – matters. Effectively managing this journey is critical to success for both the customer and the service provider.

Once onboard and using the service, customers need to feel that they have your organization’s support at every level. Yet, too often organizations complete implementation in a strong proactive manner, and then move to a reactive strategy. Organizations must develop and utilize a customer success experience that defines tasks, milestones, and alignment throughout the whole lifecycle. After all, successful outcomes are the main drivers of customer renewal and expansion.

The CSPN Customer Success & Strategy Program is designed for managers and team leads looking to deliver customer success by developing the mindset, metrics and strategies they can use today. The program supports individuals and organizations in creating business focused activities to manage the customer life cycle and drive adoption, renewals, upselling and advocacy.

All businesses – traditional, subscription-based or otherwise – need to maximize customer lifetime value to be profitable and succeed. With new customer acquisition costs exceeding the cost to retain existing customers, our Customer Success & Strategy Program provides the insight and perspectives to reduce churn while expanding accounts and increasing customer engagement.

Long-term success starts with the ability and knowledge of the individuals responsible for delivering it. Customer Success is and always will be about the people and their knowledge, skills and abilities. However important those first days are, the journey to customer success is constant and never ends.

Conflict Resolution Public Workshop

This course qualifies as one prerequisite towards CCSS© designation

Have you ever been in a conflict that you wished you could have handled better? We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our co-workers. Conflicts that are ignored or resolved badly don’t go away – they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on an organization are a loss of productivity, absenteeism and high turnover.

Conflict comes about from differences – in needs, values and motivations. Sometimes it is through these differences that we complement each other, but sometimes these differences result in conflict. Conflict is not a problem in itself – it is what we do with it that counts.

It is important that we do something because whether we like it or not, conflicts demand our energy. In fact, an unresolved conflict can call on tremendous amounts of our attention. We all know how exhausting an unresolved conflict can be. It is not always easy to fix the problem but a great energy boost can come when we do. This program teaches you the techniques for proper conflict resolution that will leave you feeling satisfied and content.

Cyber Security and Municipalities: Balancing Risk and Budget

Weak or nonexistent cybersecurity programs represent a massive organizational risk for municipal government agencies across North America, and of course Canada. Municipal leaders are often unaware of these risks because they assume that security is addressed or believe that a threat is minimized as a public sector organization.

In 2018, reports from three Ontario municipalities, one in BC and one in Quebec surfaced. All around ransomware, and all impacted adversely the operations and privacy of their records and impacting their constituents. Each also had a financially impact to the municipalities as each had to work to eradicate the malware, recover data or pay ransoms.

While ransomware attacks are often indiscriminate and are about disruption, other attacks are imminent that also hinge on weak security measures and experience. Theft of data from the public sector is valuable and should not be overlooked. Land deeds, mortgage information, birth and death records, SIN numbers and more, all constitute Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and all can equate to valuable dollars to those who can use them for further criminal activity.

Municipalities need to be looking at various areas to shore up cyber security for their offices and staff and help reduce the risk associated with these threats.Actions can include but not limited to:

-Developing a cyber security strategy to combat threats and understand security posture

-Implementing technology and security tools to handle threats as they emerge

-Awareness training for staff to help know when threats like phishing email are present

-Developing a information security policy for all staff to follow

Cyber threats is multi billion dollar industry for cyber criminals. Municipalities are not immune to the threats that are present every day. Each municipal leadership team should look at their own areas and determine what steps are needed to be performed.

In the end it is not IF a cyber attack will affect them but rather WHEN and HOW impactful it will become.
