 Seminar : Winning the Conflict
 


DURATION : 1-day seminar
presented by Dr. Arnold Mol


The purpose is (1) to understand what causes conflict in interpersonal relationships, both at work and at home, (2) identify the typical styles of conflict-handling, and (3) learn how to apply the most effective techniques for resolving the conflict.

The seminar has a very limited theoretical presentation. Most of the learning is experiential, in that participants will be placed in teams and asked to solve a number of conflict situations amongst themselves. For example, the will have to identify the typical conflict-handling styles of characters in a movie, participate in a committee meeting to allocate pay increases to a number of employees, agree on the best candidate for a management position on a diamond mine, resolve the conflict between management and the workers' union, as well as participate in other conflict-generating exercises. These exercises are scored so that teams are able to compare their performance against those of other teams.

Participants will also be asked to assess one another’s conflict-handling styles and give anonymous feedback to each team member.


 

 Seminar : Creating Winners in the Workplace
 


DURATION : 2-day seminar
presented by Dr. Arnold Mol


Managers throughout the world today admit that the problems that give them the most hassles are the people problems. Subordinates who are not competent, workers who are not motivated, staff who are not dependable, and so on.

Yet very few managers have ever had formal training in the management of people. A great deal of effort is put into their technical training, but the skill to manage subordinates is regarded as something that is picked up automatically.

This seminar is aimed at correcting this problem and covers topics like how to motivate people, how to set goals, how to measure work performance, how to delegate responsibility, how to get subordinates to think for themselves, how to stimulate innovation, how to exercise management controls, how to deal with non-performers, how to reward effectively, and how to develop self-confidence in subordinates.

Numerous managers who have attended his seminar have not only benefited greatly, but have even described it as a life experience, because he also touches on aspects like the motivation of children, marriage enrichment, etc. There is a good deal of evidence that his methods are effective, and have led to considerable increases in productivity. Several magazine articles and television programmes have testified to its applicability at all levels of work.

In the seminar itself there are numerous group discussions, case studies, and lots of practical examples about what has been accomplished in organisations throughout South Africa. The seminar can be aimed at commerce, industry, or agriculture.


 

 Seminar : Marriage Enrichment

 


DURATION : Weekend seminar
presented by Arnold & Joy Mol


"If a man has failed at home, he is a failure, regardless of where else he may have achieved success.

It is a sad fact that so many people's lives are devastated, or affected negatively because of a poor marriage relationship. By the time a couple are ready to see a counsellor it is usually too late. Too much water has flowed under the bridge. Too many conflicts are unresolved. That is why prevention is always better than cure.

Arnold & Joy present a marriage enrichment seminar over a weekend that is not intended to be a salvage operation, but is geared for couples with reasonably healthy marriages. The idea is to enrich and strengthen the relationship.

The seminar starts on Friday evening and continues through to Sunday lunchtime. Both Arnold and Joy present lectures on topics like temperament differences, conflict-handling, coping with negative emotions, and making your partner happy. At the end of each session a "kneecap session" is held where each couple will go off privately and discuss the issues that have been presented in the lecture as it affects them. At no stage will any couple ever be asked to share anything publicly about their own relationship.

The material has a strong christian basis and the programme includes two early-morning Bible Studies. It is held at a resort, away from town, and no children are allowed to come to the resort, even if it under someone else's supervision. This is a time that husband and wife need for themselves.


 

 Seminar : Parenting
 
DURATION : Weekend seminar
presented by Arnold & Joy Mol


"If a man has failed at home, he is a failure, regardless of where else he may have achieved success.

It is a sad fact that so many people's lives are devastated, or affected negatively because of poor parenting. It is easy (and fun) becoming a parent. It is a great deal more difficult being a good one.

Arnold & Joy present a parenting seminar over a weekend that is intended to provide parents with some basic parenting skills. In the seminar they share a great deal from their own experience as parents of two sons and one daughter.

The seminar starts on Friday evening and continues through to Sunday lunchtime. Both Arnold and Joy present lectures on topics like building your child’s self-esteem, shaping your child’s behaviour, developing your child’s intelligence, encouraging your child’s physical development and teaching your child to walk with God. At the end of each session a "kneecap session" is held where each couple will go off privately and discuss the issues that have been presented in the lecture as it affects them. At no stage will any parents ever be asked to share anything publicly about their own parenting problems.

The material has a strong christian basis and the programme includes two early-morning Bible Studies. It is held at a resort, away from town, and no children are allowed to come to the resort, even if it under someone else's supervision. This is a time that mom and dad need for themselves.
