Workshop  Training Programs

All workshops are customized to meet the specific goals and objectives of each audience:

Plugged: Dig Out and Get The Right Things Done™

Based on the core lessons from her book Plugged, Krissi shows how the acronym PAR turns workplace frustration into a proven process for producing winning results. This training program can be applied on many fronts: team building, leadership, personal challenge, sales, strategic planning and implementation.

The workshop focuses on one cornerstone idea: shoot for PAR.

  • Prioritize: focus on what matters most
  • Adapt: see change as an opportunity
  • be Responsible: take ownership of the outcome

All too often, people find themselves busy doing activities that aren’t tied to the most important things they want—or need—to accomplish. With a training workshop from Krissi Barr, anyone can learn how to dig out and get the right things done!

Leadership Unleashed: How to Get a Leg Up at Work

Leadership separates the good from the great. Based on the core lessons from her book The Fido Factor, Krissi trains the class on the leadership in a way that’s both relatable and memorable.  Participants will learn how to be the leader their dog would be proud of…and their boss.

The central message is how dogs–and great leaders–live the values of FIDO.

  • Faithful leaders earn the trust of their team and their customers by doing the right things and living up to their word.
  • Inspirational leaders move people to do the meaningful and the extraordinary.
  • Determined leaders combine perseverance with a dose of fearlessness to keep moving toward goals.
  • Observant leaders are committed to taking in as much information as possible in order to make the best decisions.

This isn’t a cute little training session about puppies. Its a serious journey to leadership success…with dogs just hanging their heads out the window and enjoying the ride.

4S™ Foundation

This program teaches people how to coach themselves, their team and customers. The focus is on behaviors and conversations proven to gain a competitive advantage and drive results.

The quality of work relationships and results depend on the quality and effectiveness of conversations. 4S™ can be used for strategic planning, coaching, problem solving, customer planning and other conversations.

Fundamentally, there are two types of conversations: those you have with yourself and those you have with other people…including co-workers. Using real cases based on situations that participants regularly encounter, people leave the program with tangible solutions. 4S™ is applicable to all levels in the organization from senior leadership to individual contributors.

The program also includes developing leadership skills around the building trusting, high-performance relationships to get better results faster.
