This course will prepare you to present seminars, briefings and private consulting. You will learn how to adapt all topics to coincide with your training objectives.

Which category are you?
Does your orientation program focus primarily on policies, procedures and their theoretical benefits? If yes, realize that social skills are an important part of the equation. Social skills and people skills are synonymous. Technology training is too often favored at the expense of social skills. Our SME training modules are adaptable to meet your company’s needs and prepare your employees to better represent your company and its brand. Essential for corporate trainers because the training will help you build a stronger professional foundation. As a corporate trainer, these modules serve as an excellent supplement to your best practices and orientation training curriculum. A leadership must!
Are your students lacking an understanding of what it is to be a “professional?” If yes, this training is indispensable for career centers (and classrooms) focused on helping graduates transition from an academic life to a corporate opportunity. Many students are concerned that they will be ill prepared to meet the professional expectations of corporate America or that they will unknowingly cross corporate behavior boundaries or display inappropriate or embarrassing behavior. Furthermore, social media and texting are over-taking in-person communication skills. As an educator, you will give your students the people skills that corporations need in their new hires. The modules are easy to adapt to your coursework syllabus. Our education curriculums are designed to help address these training voids and better prepare your students for the interview process and workplace. Your key instructors will be trained and certified to present the Global Protocol Academy materials in the classroom or career center.
This training is adaptable to any university program or can be developed as a
one-semester, transferable elective course. Students want to take the coursework; and they also want transferable credits. (A sample semester curriculum is available to licensees.)
Are you an executive coach, career consultant, or an image consultant needing to add another dimension to your offerings to help your clients achieve their domestic and/or international goals? Are you interested in adding etiquette and protocol to your expertise but do not want to do all the development work? Perhaps your clients are asking for assistance with their image and communication skills in areas that you typically do not cover as a coach or consultant. Or, you have trained with another company but still feel you have some voids or are not getting the support you need. Our coursework is a perfect fit and will fill that void.
As quoted by Jim Collins in his /book, Good to Great, it is important to get the
“right people on the bus.” Authors such as Jim Collins, Harvey McKay
(Pushing the Envelope), and Daniel Goleman (Social Intelligence) agree that the right
people are the ones who excel in people-related social skills.
