Essential Interpersonal Skills  

The Essential Interpersonal Skills class spans 8 hours of intensive, interactive learning in person in a group setting of approximately 12 people. It’s flexible, offered either as a single full-day session or two half-day sessions approximately a week apart. To enrich the learning experience, preparatory activities are provided for the one-day class, or inter-session tasks for the half-day format. Full attendance and completion of classwork are prerequisites for receiving the Certificate of Completion, marking your dedication and skill acquisition.

Embracing an abundance mindset, Doorknob Consulting currently for the spring season of 2024 offers Interpersonal Skills courses on a contribution-based model. You choose what to contribute for your staff’s enrollment, reflecting the value you place on enhanced communication and other Interpersonal skills included in the training. Research shows poor communication can cost $620 up to $4,200 per employee yearly, so consider the potential savings and value these skills bring to your organization.

While we value this 8-hour training at $640 per person, we trust you to contribute according to its worth to you. Classes with additional class hours, such as the ‘Information Technology Interpersonal Skills’ class (12 hours/$735), are valued accordingly, per person. This approach not only supports our community-focused mission but ensures quality training accessible to all. Note: Class size limits apply for optimal outcomes, and training outside Pensacola Florida may incur additional travel costs.

Our Essential Interpersonal Skills Classes are a career game-changer, fostering an environment where communication is seamless and collaboration flourishes. These classes are tailored to enhance your professional relationships, improve team dynamics, and boost customer engagement, setting you on a path to a more satisfying and successful career. Reflecting research by the National Soft Skills Association, which found that 85% of career success hinges on “soft” people skills, our curriculum focuses on these crucial abilities. For an in-depth understanding, you can read more about this research at The Real Skills Gap. Our certificate of completion lists the skills covered and demonstrated by you that may influence employers in career advancement/hiring decisions. 

Doorknob Consulting’s Essential Interpersonal Skills Classes differ from others through a holistic, interactive approach that goes beyond the limits of typical online courses. While many online options focus on isolated skills, Doorknob’s in-person sessions offer comprehensive skill development, integrating a range of interpersonal abilities. This unique structure enhances not only skill understanding and development but also their practical application in various professional settings. The curriculum progresses through fundamental skills to business applications and job-specific customizations, all underpinned by an emphasis on mindset and supportive attitudes, crucial for personal growth. Interactive components and a completion certificate further augment the learning experience.

We provide specialized training formats designed to meet the unique needs of various industry sectors. Our offerings include:
Information Technology: A comprehensive 12-hour training program.
Freight Transportation: An extensive 18-hour training program tailored for this sector.

Two exciting webinars are available for teens, and students can choose to take them in any order. Both webinars offer valuable insights and tools for teens to navigate their journey to a successful and purposeful future. Below are summaries of the two webinar tracks:

Goals-focused-  ‘Your Key Your Door’: In this webinar, students will understand their Life Purpose and how to live it; set clear visions and goals for the future; learn valuable skills of using personal keys of success and measuring their wellbeing.
Career-choice Focused- ‘Your Key Your Door’:  In this webinar students will develop skills such as listening techniques, career readiness by completing career triangles that target skills, strengths and values of the teen, strengthen career awareness through job-shadow conversations, and stay focused on their keys-to-success and intentions for a fulfilling life.

People whose children have experienced these classes tell us that it is the most important class their child has ever taken. This class has the power to change your child’s life! We simply can not emphasize enough that attendance is of utmost importance for your child to receive the full benefit of what we have to offer.

Your child is unique and deserves a program designed to enhance their specific growth path. We recognize the individuality of each young person and tailor our webinar to meet their specific needs and aspirations.

Satisfaction comes from following a life purpose that fits. For young adults, that journey is often unclear or obscured by the many voices in the contemporary world.
So, we use powerful questions to help your teen look inside themselves to find out who they are, discover their purpose, and ways they can contribute uniquely to the world. Our well-trained instructors work collaboratively with your teen, guiding them through a discovery process that enables them to live their best life.

Accountability is another key aspect of what we offer, motivating your teen to work through this self-discovery during class and the weeks between sessions and beyond, connecting them with their internal motivation for life-long success.

We value confidentiality in our classes. Students are encouraged to share what they learn about themselves in the webinars with family and friends, but information shared by any student in session is confidential and must not be shared with others outside the group in the webinar without written permission. Students must sign a confidentiality agreement before the first session and this important factor will be clearly explained. If this agreement is found to be violated the student will be excused from the following sessions without a refund or certificate of completion.

Our instructors only initiate communication when required by mandatory reporting. We welcome parents or sponsors feedback via email to support your child’s journey during the webinar’s progress of the nine weeks! We want to see what you do from the outside and testimonies along the way are always welcome.

We offer an optional book and webinar for parents (10 Easy Keys) to learn how to support their student’s progress. While not mandatory, it’s encouraged as it provides valuable parenting tools and strengthens the parent-child relationship. We also offer one-to-one coaching with certified coach, Teri Haggerty, for parents, mentors or individual coaching for young adults.

In these two webinars young people discover who they are, and how to live their best life, which includes building inter-relationships with their parents and childcare mentors. Empower your family’s journey with these webinars, designed to foster mutual growth and understanding,  also addressing the critical challenges of parent and teen mental health as highlighted in Time’s insightful article.
