The Art of Creating a Relational Culture in Organizations (2-day training) in SOUTH AFRICA
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am – Aug 8 @ 6:00 pm

THE ART OF CREATING A RELATIONAL
CULTURE IN ORGANIZATIONS (2-days)

Many of the challenges that arise in the workplace, and which pollute the relational space in organizations, are created and sustained by adversarial dynamics between coworkers. The ability of a group of people to work productively and co-operatively toward a common goal depends on the sound quality of their vertical and horizontal relationships. Many leaders are unaware of the tight coupling between motivated, creative, and productive employees, and an atmosphere of emotional safety. It is the soundness of these relationship that affects essential workplace factors such as creativity, productivity and motivation.

Drawing on the collective wisdom of a variety of organizational methodologies, Relationship Builders & Trainers Hedy and Yumi Schleifer, teach some of the basic principles at the core of being a relational leader and a relational organization. They present ways of fundamentally altering an organizational culture by the development of its Relational Intelligence. They provide new information, useful assumptions and a powerful, user-friendly skill set, which will allow for the creation of an atmosphere of relationality and emotional safety in the workplace.

This two-day training is based on several sources, including Hedy and Yumi’s 27 years of teaching the Art of Connection, as well as the spirit of Appreciative Inquiry (AI). AI is a radically new approach to change in organizations. It completely lets go of problem-based-management and focusses instead on strengths and resources and on what is possible.

You will leave this training with renewed energy, feeling emboldened in your capacity to bring effective change to the relational climate of an organization. You will be acquiring relationship enhancing tools and techniques to “dissolve” conflicts, by eliminating the adversarial relationships that fuel them, and turning mistakes into “launching pads” for increased morale.

Date: August 7-8, 2017

Time: 9:00am to 6:00pm both days

Location: South Africa - Genesis Suites & Conferencing
10 Sandler Rd, Johannesburg, 2192 South Africa

For Public Speakers - Presenting with Boldness, Poise & Confidence (2-day training) in SOUTH AFRICA @ Genesis Suites & Conferencing | Johannesburg | Gauteng | South Africa

Presenting with Boldness, Poise & Confidence Training (2-days)

Join Hedy for a two-day training as she teaches you her guiding principles and use of self to transform your presentations. Convinced that anyone, with the right skills and attitude, can transform their lives and relationships, Hedy will revitalize your presentation skills, and empower you to inspire the groups of people you will be presenting to in the future.

With over 30 year of experience presenting workshops, trainings, lectures, and keynote speeches, Hedy is a master at presentation skills, bringing deep insight and competence to each audience. Hedy continues to be sought out by businesses and professional groups throughout the world. Watch Hedy's TEDtalk below and click here to view Hedy's full biography.

I watch Hedy Schleifer open the room and from the moment we make eye contact I feel in full focus. I feel seen, valued and connected. She is teaching us about Presentation Skills – a very unworthy title! Within the first hour of a two day workshop the transformation begins. Through the power of connection and Hedy’s gentle but unrelenting attention to every detail of my presence, we are discovering together the edge of my growth. I am not alone. There are more than 30 of us.

 

When I take a big risk to step into the open space and test out my capacity to present to the group I feel a combination of nervous excitement, and complete trust that Hedy will catch me just before I begin to fall. I feel like a little toddler in the exploration stage so excited to explore this new world of authentic connection within a group, yet knowing I can turn back and find those eyes sending messages of encouragement, and support nudging me to step fully into my essential being. What a gift!

Hedy's TED Talk

On Monday, April 26, 2010 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Hedy Schleifer was invited to be one of the influential 20 minute lecturers at the TEDxTelAviv Conference. If you have trouble viewing this video here, you can go directly to http://www.youtube.com/hedyyumi.


Hedy mentioned her upcoming workshop in NYC (2/20 and 2/21) on presentation skills.  As most of you know, Hedy has been the most important teacher of my life.  She teaches at a level that Ken nor I have ever experienced before or since.  She doesn’t just share interesting information- she transmits information in a way that lands in you so deeply that it enters your whole being, not just your brain.  That information sticks even years later.  She teaches the art of being truly present to the people or person in the room with whom she is in communication.  I told her that I would let my friends in the NY area who counsel, coach and present know about her training.

Training for Therapists – EcCT Training (5-day training) in SOUTH AFRICA
Aug 18 @ 9:00 am – Aug 22 @ 6:00 pm

This 5-day training in Encounter-centered Couples Therapy will introduce you to, deepen your understanding of, and your familiarity with, the use of EcCT in your work with couples.  You will learn:

  • rituals that can help couples learn and internalize the vocabulary of the “other” and thus become “bilingual.”
  • the complex distinction between the adaptive “survival dance” and the “dance of life in connection.”
  • a unique structure that Hedy has developed for jump-starting a couple’s relationship in two full days, thus eliminating months and sometimes years of therapy.
  • the distinction between incremental, successive change, and the power of real transformation, what Hedy calls "Level 3 Learning.”
  • about “unraveling of the survival knot” of a couple, the principle “stickiness” that brings the couple to therapy. It is what couples experience as their impasse issue, where one person’s anguished desperation meets the other person’s dogged resistance.

For logistical information in South Africa, visit: www.imagoafrica-hedyyumi.co.za

Tuition is $695 for therapists, $625 for Imago Africa members, & $345 for non-therapist spouse/partners.

$200 deposit needed to register. Balance will automatically be charged two weeks before the event.

Hedy brings the crystallized wisdom she has gathered from her 40 years as a psychotherapist, her 25 years of work dedicated to couples, and her 52 years of personal work in the "living laboratory" of her own marriage to her husband, Yumi.

You will discover:

  • life-changing relationship skills
  • how to “cross the bridge” into another person’s world
  • ways of turning daily grumbles between us into vehicles for change
  • healthier means of dissolving conflicts
  • how to be fully alive, totally present and ready for the richest connections possible
