The Psychology of Effective Management (PEM)
The transition from individual contributor to manager is often a dramatic change. And, it is one that we are rarely prepared for! The PEM program is designed for supervisor and manager level individuals with staff responsibility. Regardless of industry or span of control, this program is an opportunity to develop the core management skills critical to success in any environment.

The PEM program consists of six (6) 60 minute modules to be taken in chronological order along with three follow-up coaching sessions and a group follow-up feedback session. The modules can be delivered as part of a full-day program, multi-day series, or a webinar series. The modules:

Career Workshops & Webinars

The YOU Plan – Thriving in the New Economy
When faced with challenge, successful people always find opportunity. The New Economy is no longer about chasing opportunities, it’s about creating opportunities! The YOU Plan workshop is about helping you learn how to take charge of your career by first looking inward and then creating a personalized plan!

The workshop is based on Dr. Woody’s VIPER model which comes from his book The YOU Plan. We each have our own unique compliment of strengths and ambitions, yet most of us never fully leverage them! The VIPER model is designed to guide you through the process of introspection and self-discovery by answering the following questions:

  • What are your Values?
  • What are your Intrinsics?
  • What are your Passions?
  • What is your Essence or brand?
  • What is your Roadmap?

Takeaways: You will walk away with a roadmap for living purposefully and achieving life-long career ambitions. Each participant will be provided with:

  • HCI Values assessment
  • YOU Plan Workbook
  • A personalized “Roadmap” for success

The YOU Brand – Standing Above the Competition
Whether you like it or not, you are a brand and there is no better time to reinvent yourself (and your brand) than now! Standing out in the New Economy will be critical to your career success. However, it’s not just about standing out, it’s about standing out in a meaningful and purposeful way!

Just as The YOU Plan workshop, The YOU Brand workshop is based on the VIPER model derived from Dr. Woody’s book The YOU Plan. The purpose is to learn how to create a brand by looking inward and drawing out the essence of who you are!

Takeaways: You will walk away with a clear understanding of what your brand package is and how to take it to market. Each participant will be provided the following:

  • Brand outline and statement
  • Brand talking points

Dr. Woody also offers custom 60 minute live webinars available to professional associations, chambers, and companies upon request. The webinars are designed to introduce participants to the YOU Plan and YOU Brand concepts.

Hi, I'm Dr. Woody and welcome to! Let's face it, most of us spend most of our waking hours working, yet most of psychology is focused on issues outside of the workplace! My goal is to help you find new and innovative ways to make the work-life experience better, so that you can create a healthier more balanced life! My focus is to help you:

  • Develop your own YOU Plan
  • Create your own opportunities
  • Make better career decisions
  • Be a better colleague and boss
At the end of the day, if you want to make a change you are going to have to put yourself in the "Hot Seat" and ask yourself some tough questions!

The fact is it's no longer about chasing opportunities, it's about creating opportunities! Once you've decided to put yourself in the "Hot Seat" my job is to help get you back out and headed in the right direction!

Good luck,
Dr. Woody
