SoResults Speaker® Robert Kutchera provides the inspired push
that creates a 'commit plan' for beneficial action.
WHY THIS WORKSHOP SUCCEEDS
FOR YOUR TEAM:
By first honoring employees in role-play presentations that inspire a confident plan for action. Best of all, strengthening collaboration and dialogue. That last part dispels fear.
So after the storm, teamwork and continuity doesn't take a hit. to become a real force for action and the common good.
It does everything a preparedness plan is supposed to do, but more importantly,
safeguards individual routines after the wind and rain go.
So this program
instills Cognitive Humor Coping Skills. To peace yourself together.
Workshop Speaker Credentials:
Today, there are distractions. So Robert Kutchera, a recognized expert on Interpersonal Communication, tells transforming stories that inspire an audience's focus and participation (reverse role-plays). Not only is it memory-remembered, it creates winning conditions and attitudes for everyone in the workplace. It's really a clever dance that keys into action.
Says Robert: "There's a lot of clarity and support in this project. Because it's about people, their lives, those of co-workers, family, even strangers they'll encounter when bad weather turns everything haywire for months. I can't afford not to give my absolute best, because attendees have given up work time to listen and participate in learning. After I finish a workshop, and I'm on quietly on my journey home, I trust I've made individuals safer in the darkness, after a bad storm."
Here's something else: Everyone knows to fill gas tanks, and have a first aid kit. And if air conditioning goes out, there's a chance of dehydration. Yet many who haven't experienced a hurricane, are unaware of the even more powerful tornadoes they release. Or inland flooding caused from weaker storms that stall over an area. Bottom line, 56% of coastal residents in 11 states haven't a family disaster plan.
How The Customized Workshop Reaches Individuals To Prepare & Commit:
Any of these nine categories below may be individually addressed in the workshop.
Who Benefits By Attending:
We do not know when a hurricane will reach
the U.S. coast and move inland.
And it's not just that more storms are predicted for this year,
it's that all it takes is one CAT 2 to demolish our schedule and valuable time.
A BETTER RESULT: Instilling preparedness and action helps the botom line.
The Storm Recovery Solution Workshop, which is interactive for problem-solving solutions, was developed to make the individual 'deciding' process easier. By letting participants create a plan through awareness, co-worker support and preparation. It then employs experiential methods that bring about enthusiasm to follow through after the storm.
And since this is a life-saving subject, it's presented in a supportive, really fun learning environment. To dispel apprehension. That's how everyone gets on board. For less stress at work...and home. Above all, it respects an individual's work, time and safety.
The workshop format can be classroom or auditorium seating, or held in a park-like setting outside. What better way to plan than see the sky above.
Importantly, it is brief, under one hour or less. With the basic information in handouts so attendees can take notes. Each presentation is customized and outlined for client feedback.
If your work groups are located in many retail outlets, brief training is offered off the sales floor. Also providing individual coaching for team leaders.
It teaches to use that remarkable free invention, e-mail, so everyone knows what's going on and what to do. Because while it's important to have friends (not just on Facebook), it's better to have teamwork collaboration and time-saving sanity techniques in place 'before & after'. (humor is a great permission-giver, allowing innovation and creative ideas to take part in great solutions).
Results Speaker® Robert Kutchera's witty, high-content delivery, teaches productive compliance that motivates & supports a commitment to plan. With coping solutions and a dash of humor that lessens apprehension and inaction. Above all, kicking stress out the door, letting common sense back in. The Storm Recovery Solution Workshop inspires individuals to take steps today that delete chaos later.
The Storm Recovery Solution Workshop is the upgrade to your organization's current hurricane program. And it doesn't conflict with what's in place or fears people. Instead, it champions co-workers, teaching better interpersonal dialogue.
If you're in Human Resources, Sales, Customer Service or Teamwork, you'll find this smart staff development throughout the year.

Important Workshop Highlights: (can be customized or adapted)
*Dyads are groups of two, informally facing each other, (can be seated), who briefly share an experience through casual dialogue. (no fear of 'public speaking' because it's one-on-one, even though everyone in the room is participating).
A Dyad's purpose is to open thought, visualization, and sustain a learning experience. One person goes first, then the second. Then comment in turns. (they establish eye contact, so important in communication at work so things aren't forgotten).
In this upbeat transforming Dyad, Robert frames the (timed) discussion: It's objective is to learn and consider what should go in their plan. All voluntary, they get to express what has changed their awareness or question old habits. That's why Dyads are called experiential learning. They then add these points to their list on preparedness. (hand-written)
The benefits: If we get 30% to buy into a plan, that's 30% more productivity. Also, this is honest, in-person communication, before data ear plugs or twittering. Good for everyday at work too.
Here's Where We Are Now:
An uneven economic recovery combined with
a active hurricane season predicted for this year
makes action imperative-along with these factors:
More than 54% of coastal and inland employees haven't any storm plan. Or would stay put and not evacuate-even if asked to do so.
Yet an approaching hurricane makes everything time-sensitive, so stress absenteeism (protecting homes, dealing with pets, the elderly, a boat) kicks in. Later, three employees may end up doing the work of five.
What The Workshop's Like:
Experiential means they feel the better conditions they create. Once that happens, they can't 'unfeel it'. That's lasting learning.
And it's interactive, so attendees are focused. Plus hilariously funny in moments. That keeps attention and keys into memory. Several times the workshop has been held outdoors or with sky views though large office windows, rather than a closed training room.
Reverse Role-Plays are custom-written and performed with regard to your established company policy and H.R. performance values. Above all, they allow the individual employee to participate in creating a practical plan that's easy and fits their own particular needs and that of the team.
It also has the benefit of teaching Irresistible Communication™ & Wellness Prosperity™. Because, as long as we're getting everyone together, we can make it a wellness/productivity place. Better communication and stress reduction is a cost savings too.
On-going stress provides a scenario where fewer are prepared-or hedging their bets. What does that say about sales and productivity after a storm? Why should companies have to deal with more uncertainty? This is from the National Survival Institute:
Plus These Productivity Facts:
A Personal Observation...
"Whenever an expert shows up", says Robert, " it's something different, raises curiosity, we're thinking. A lot of this is theater. It isn't so much individuals are distracted on purpose. There are legitimate factors: relentless deadlines, pressures. Hurry Sickness, Agenda Anxiety, Presenteeism, feeding on bad news, sleep deprivation, money worries. In this case, add obsessing over storm trajectories that increase stress rather than 'doing'.
So there's that to overcome. Especially if you're getting the organization up to speed. And if it's presented by an outside speaker, it's better received, again because it's unique.
Once you move the 'indecision gorilla' out the room, you transform their actions inside. It has to be done from the start. Dramatically, without fear, solid education, easy to absorb and some fun. That's often done magnificently with cognitive humor. Once they laugh with you, they're on your side and go along. Either through laughter, applause or by protecting their lives, their important schedules and jobs. I supported 200 patients in a teaching psychiatric hospital for four years and light humor worked quite well there. I was in advertising for a decade, so I understand how you persuade the undecided.
How an audience responds to new information: Curiously, doing stand-up on cruise ships, I learned by trial and error to convince audiences from that creative perspective. If you don't deliver, they let you know. At least they didn't leave in groups, ha! Also being in a couple of hurricanes at sea in the 70's, where everything's moving, hidden metal things crashing, elevators getting stuck, people walking fast…nowhere, and sea sickness. I convinced Food & Beverage, as Cruise Director, to serve free carbonated drinks to help sour stomachs and morale. You learn. Ships today are always prepared, and with satellites, the bridge changes itinerary fast and we sail away from the storm. On land, there's no Captain to safely steer you. That's why you have to know your safe escape-and that's part of what the workshop plan teaches you.
