Skill Pill

Skill Pills

Are you looking for a dynamic, time saving and cost-effective approach to equip your organisation with cutting edge thinking, new ideas, tools and learnings that can be applied back on the job in under half a day?

How many programs do you run that become a one-off event where learnings don’t stick and aren’t embedded back in the workplace?

We hear your pain. It can be frustrating investing time and money in programs that are transactional and not transformational, where learnings remain known and not actioned.

That’s why we have created ….. Skill Pills.

This dynamic and tailored learning approach consists of individual 2-3 hour immersions or workshop sessions we call Skill Pills. These sessions can be a support in between the programs we run to ensure learnings are embedded and applied OR the Skill Pills can be introduced as a stand-alone program.

These immersions of insight, discussion and practical tools are bought to life-based on what is needed and top of mind in your organisation right NOW! 

Skill Pills can be run as often as required. They can be run to up to 100 participants (face to face) or 500 (virtually), creating a rich and interactive learning environment whilst maximising return on investment. All sessions cover content brought to life with hands-on skills practice and discussion with an action plan to implement back on the job. All sessions include a session manual.

Bringing over 25 years of leadership, communication and sales capability expertise and experience the value and insight Renée brings to these sessions is outstanding.

You choose your PRESCRIPTION package of 6 or 12 sessions tailored to what your organisation needs right now.

Who is Looking after the Leader?

Duration: Interactive 40–90-minute session

Scope: Session content is designed to your objectives and audience

The world has changed, and so have we.

Whether you are leading a team or not, we are all leaders of self.

We need to ensure we look after our mental, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellbeing.

The new world of work has us juggling technology, people, strategy, AI, and the hybrid working environment.

Fewer people are doing more. This often results in business owners, leaders and executives experiencing overwhelm, burnout and mental health issues.

We cannot pour from an empty cup; in life and work, we should give all of us, not what is left of us.

In this interactive session, leadership, mindset, and communication expert Renée Giarrusso will explore and expand on the 12-key, tried and tested strategies for leaders to give back to themselves.

These strategies enable wellbeing across the 5 dimensions of being a Limitless leader, and each strategy is explained with practical tips and tools to implement in real time.

A few of the strategies:

  • Create a ‘No” list.
  • Review and renew boundaries.
  • Eliminate energy vampires.
  • Know who and what lights you up.
  • Mindset Matters-Flipping negative dialogue.
  • Get outside and get grounded.
  • Foster an attitude of gratitude.

This session is run as a “learn and do” as opposed to a “show and tell” session.

Walk away with insights, techniques, and a plan to give back to you, the leader.

Renée's presentation on “Who's looking after the leader?” was amazing. Extremely insightful and interactive, leaving you with tangible things to implement as a leader. Highly recommend if you get a chance to see the presentation.

Communication to Cut Through

Duration: 60 – 120 minute session

Scope: Session content is designed to your objectives and audience

A key skill to master in and out of the workplace is the skill of communication.

Workplace communication statistics show that 86% of employees and executives cite the lack of effective collaboration and communication as the leading cause of workplace failures.

Being an effective communicator allows us to forge and develop deep and meaningful interactions and relationships. It is also key in building connection and rapport to influence and create impact and buy-in with internal and external stakeholders, customers, and suppliers.

Collaborative communication within the workplace takes time and involves active participation, engagement, and mutual support among colleagues in an environment that has high trust and fosters cooperation and teamwork.

One of the biggest challenges in achieving collaborative communication is managing different communication styles and perspectives. People have unique backgrounds, experiences, values, and ways of expressing themselves, which can lead to misunderstandings and conflicting viewpoints. Additionally, remote work, AI and cultural differences can also impact the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively.

In this thought-provoking session we will:

  • Understand that communication is the response we get.
  • Unwrap the key barriers that stifle connection.
  • Expand on verbal & written communication skills.
  • Share rapport building strategies for virtual and f2f communication.
  • Appreciate diversity by looking at 2 sides of an idea. Play the 2 Sides IN 2 Minutes Game.

  • Explore the key dimensions of communication.

This session is run as a “learn and do” as opposed to a “show and tell” session.

Walk away with insights, techniques, and a plan to give back to you, the leader.

I'm delighted to recommend Renee who brilliantly led a Communications Workshop at our WorldCC APAC Summit in Melbourne in August 2023. She practices what she preaches, masterfully communicating with her audience, presenting relevant and engaging content in a really interactive way.

Renee shared invaluable insights, she created an environment of trust in her knowledge and expertise and lots of fun in the interactive game that she shared with the participants. Our post-conference feedback overwhelmingly praised her session, with many eager to implement the strategies learned and hear from Renee again.

What Our Clients Say

Renée ran a series of virtual workshops (Skill Pill) for SPC at the onset COVID and working from home. Renée was fantastic to work with, from custom designing the workshops to meet our needs, through to the delivery, and participant documentation/ post workshop support. The topics ranged from working from home mind set, collaboration, communication and personal branding (to name a few). We had excellent participant engagement and feedback. Thanks Renée, my team and I really enjoyed working with you, and we highly value your expertise. I cant wait to work with you again (and meet you in person!)

Amanda McRoy, Senior Human Resources Leader at SPC

Renee’s ability to deliver a range of effective and practical leadership strategies from a range of psychological principles is both extremely impressive and invaluable. As a doctoral student in psychology, the level of skill and knowledge that goes into producing real-life strategies from theory that actually work, which is a testament to her experience, intellect and level of skill. The course was very interactive and allowed us to gain strategies from Renee that were tailored to our specific needs. I have immediately begun implementing these strategies and found her approach to communication and rapport building valuable.
