• Success Secrets for Small Talk at Work

    How good are you at chit-chat? With all the skills you need to be successful in business, this is one that often gets overlooked. Being a good conversationalist, however, is vital if you want to get ahead. Fortunately, small talk is a skill that can be learned; with a little bit of practice, you can become proficient at making conversation.

    • Be mindful of the moment. Often, we’re so involved in our own thoughts or focused on our devices that we miss the opportunity to connect with those around us. Put away your phone when you’re around other people, and make a point to interact.
    • Know before you go. If there’s a company event, find out what you can about people who will be in attendance. Think about the people you’d really like to meet, and what questions you might ask to engage them in conversation.
    • Be prepared. Make a plan before you enter a social situation, thinking of questions you can ask to start conversations, current events that are interesting without being controversial, and interesting personal facts that you can share without oversharing. It’s also smart to plan for the close of a conversation, making sure you know how to gracefully exit when it’s reached its logical conclusion.
    • Make the first move. Don’t wait for people to initiate conversations with you. Instead, take the initiative and branch out from people you already know. Be inclusive, introducing people to each other, and be friendly, conveying warmth and sincerity.
    • Listen more than you talk. A big part of conversation has nothing to do with coming up with things to say. Focus on the person with whom you’re conversing, asking questions and paying attention to the answers. It’s likely that the answers will act as springboards for further conversation, so look for opportunities to ask follow-up questions.
    • Be sure to share. If you only ask questions without volunteering information about yourself, the person with whom you’re talking may feel like you’re conducting an interrogation. Share details about your life, taking care to keep the conversation light and upbeat.
    • Be mindful of your purpose. Small talk is more than mindless chatter. Rather, it’s a way to get to know people, forming connections in order to build more substantial relationships with colleagues and associates.

    If you’re a leader in your company, you can help foster relationships by providing opportunities for team members to interact and get to know each other. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on offering training facilities that facilitate team-building, with high-quality equipment and exceptional service.

  • Top Five Traits That Make A Great Leader

    Are you a good leader? What would it take for you to define yourself as a great leader? Is there a certain personality trait or character aspect that makes someone a great leader, or can outstanding leadership be taught and learned? What would you say are the top five traits that make a great leader?

    • A great leader has integrity. A leader who is honest and has a clear vision is capable of building a team from the ground up. People are inspired by leaders who believe in what they’re doing and are honest in their interactions. In fact, a recent survey indicated that over 80 percent of workers surveyed rank honesty as the most important personality trait for a leader.
    • Great leaders are decisive. Making decisions is central to leadership, and to be an effective leader, you have to be confident that the choices you are making are in the best interest of your organization. To do this, you must have a vision and know how to weigh all your options and move forward in pursuit of that vision.
    • In order to lead well, you must be open. Openness is an important trait of leaders, and that means being imaginative, open to new experiences, and open to the ideas of others. A leader who has this kind of openness can create a culture of effective communication, where team members feel that their ideas are heard and valued.
    • Attention to detail is imperative in leadership. Conscientious leaders are organized, thoughtful, and forward thinking. They are strategic planners who empower their teams by creating both long and short term goals to propel the organization forward. They can see the big picture as well as the little details, and they notice how their employees contribute to the success of their company.
    • To be a great leader, you must be a team builder. In addition to listening to the ideas of their team members, great leaders recognize achievement in their team, acknowledging each member’s contributions. By supporting employees this way, leaders create a culture that promotes confidence and positive energy rather than stress. In such an environment, expectations are communicated clearly, but there’s also room for fun and camaraderie. What’s more, good leaders provide learning opportunities and chances to grow and advance.

    Good leaders know that sometimes, team building requires time and space for training outside of the office. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on offering facilities perfect for team building, featuring the technology and tools to facilitate learning, with high-quality equipment and exceptional service. Our computer labs and other spaces come equipped with internet accessibility, printers and fax machines, Wi-Fi setup, on-site tech support, full projection systems, workstations, whiteboards, and computers furnished with the most cutting edge technology, to ensure that your training event is a success. Soundproof rooms, continental breakfast, and optional catered lunches are just a few of the other ways we provide the little niceties that make a big difference for your event. For the past 18 years, we’ve provided exceptional service to businesses throughout Houston, and we have the expertise to help you make your event a success.

  • Top Five Stress-Free Tips for Corporate Travel

    Do you travel for business? It can be exciting in the beginning, but after a little while, corporate travel can feel like a hassle. How can you avoid becoming stressed? Try these five stress-free tips for corporate travel.

    • Compare fares. Sometimes, it pays to stick with one airline and build up points. On the other hand, it’s not worth missing out on cheaper flights, just for the sake of points. Take some time to shop around, looking for non-stop flights, to save time as well as money. Don’t overlook one-way fares, because sometimes combining two one way fares can be a better deal than booking a round-trip ticket. Don’t limit yourself to coach, either: during times of year in which there aren’t as many business travelers, the cost of seats in business and economy class may drop.
    • Invest in good travel gear. What this means it up to you. You certainly need luggage that’s easy to maneuver and made to stand up to the rigors of travel, and it’s not a bad idea to pick up a power bank or two, for those delays that drain your devices’ batteries. Shore up your wardrobe, so that you’ll look pulled together even on travel days, and you’ll know exactly what to pack each time you leave. Think about the things that will make your travel comfortable and efficient, and purchase what you need: some people might find it worthwhile to invest in a good travel pillow, while others may find it just as comfortable to roll up a scarf or jacket to use instead. What makes a trip easy is subjective, so consider your own needs when you’re deciding what to purchase and pack.
    • Travel light. Bearing in mind the above suggestion about providing for your own comfort, it’s still smart to confine your things to a carry-on bag. This will enable you to get to the gate more quickly, and if you use compression bags you can still fit everything you need into a carry-on and your laptop bag. Pack with security checkpoints in mind, making sure to abide by protocols regarding liquids and electronics.
    • Make friends. If you’re going to travel the same route on a regular basis, you’ll undoubtedly run across the same people, whether in the airport, on the flight crew, at the hotel, or at the car rental counter. Being friendly to these people can help facilitate more comfortable travel, and make your trips smoother. One frequent traveler brings a bag of candy on each flight, to share with the flight attendants. This kind of nice gesture puts everyone in a good mood and makes them more favorably disposed towards you, which can make your travel more enjoyable.
    • Use programs that make travel easier. Join rewards programs that provide points or miles for air travel, hotel stays, car rental, and credit card usage. Check into your flight online ahead of time, and consider applying for TSA Pre-Check and Global Entry to help you move through security and customs more easily. An airport lounge membership is also a good idea because it gives you access to a pleasant place to wait for your flight.

    Another way to make corporate travel less taxing is to host your corporate event at the right location. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on offering training facilities that feature the technology and tools to facilitate learning, with high-quality equipment and exceptional service. Soundproof rooms, state of the art electronics, continental breakfast, and optional catered lunches are just a few of the ways we create an environment that makes a big difference for your event. For the past 18 years, we’ve provided exceptional service to businesses throughout Houston, and we have the expertise to help you make your event a success.

  • How to Create an Inclusive Workplace Environment

    There’s plenty of buzz these days about creating an inclusive workplace environment, but what does it mean? If you think about the word inclusion, considering what it means, you’ll probably think about belonging, connecting with others, and being part of a community. At work, inclusion means all the ways, great and small, that employers can help people feel comfortable and connected, a part of a well-functioning whole. Why is inclusion important, and what are the steps you need to take to create an inclusive workplace environment?

    First, let’s address the importance of this issue. According to recent research, workplaces with an inclusive culture are twice as likely to meet their financial goals or even surpass them, and six times more likely to be innovative. They’re 42 percent less likely to lose employees because when employees feel that they can bring their whole selves to work, they’re unlikely to look for a new position. Engaging your employees and helping them feel connected and included is good for your people, and good for your business.

    To create an inclusive workplace, strive to make develop a corporate culture that’s cooperative, collaborative, fair, open, curious, and accountable, by incorporating seven components of inclusion.

    • The right resources give employees they support they need to be inclusive. Give your employees access to appropriate technology, help them support each other through employee resource groups, and encourage them to make meetings more inclusive by sending agendas and other materials in advance. When everyone at the meeting is prepared, and technology is set up properly, it becomes easier for all the members of the group to be actively involved.
    • One of the most important ways to include someone is to allow them to have a voice. When employees have a say about decisions with an impact on their work, they take more ownership in that work and tend to work harder. They gain a higher level of job satisfaction, which in turn improves their performance. When employees are allowed to talk openly, it helps them trust their leaders, and an environment of trust inspires creativity and productivity. What’s more, companies that listen to their people gain useful knowledge that improves their business.
    • When employees feel that their company values them for who they are, they feel connected to that company. It’s important for individuals to be recognized for their uniqueness and to feel that their leadership values their skills and unique perspectives. To give employees this sense of belonging, speak to your employees with intention. Acknowledge their efforts, and highlight their specific achievements so that they know you value them and take pride in their successes.
    • Encouraging collaboration helps teams feel connected to each other. This sense of connection gives them the ability to work together using the strengths and skills of each individual. In meetings, take the time to ask for feedback and acknowledge the source of good ideas, even if that person is not in the room.
    • Inclusivity relies on intentionality. Look for ways to weave inclusive practices into the culture, values, and mission of your company. Make it clear that you value diverse ideas and perspectives, and show this through inclusive practices.
    • Find exciting ways to make people feel like they belong. Create social events and utilize social media to engage employees and help them to connect.
    • Employees who have the opportunity to learn and grow will be more likely to want to advance their careers within their organization. Look for ways to empower your employees with learning and development opportunities that help them expand both their personal and professional goals. Find out what interests them and encourage them to pursue their passions and hobbies, learn new skills, and further their education.

    One way to strengthen the unity of your group is to hold training sessions off-site, where team members can learn together and form bonds. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on providing companies with training facilities that feature high-quality equipment and exceptional service. Our computer labs and other spaces come equipped with internet accessibility, printers and fax machines, Wi-Fi setup, on-site tech support, full projection systems, workstations, whiteboards, and computers furnished with the most cutting edge technology, to ensure that your training event is a success.

  • Top 5 Ways to Boost Employee Engagement

    We often think of it as an HR issue, but if you’re in a leadership position, employee engagement is something you need to be taking seriously. Why? Because employees who aren’t engaged are employees who aren’t likely to stick around. If you want to avoid replacing your workforce, instead creating a team that’s so inspired its members want to bring others on board, it’s smart to look at the top five ways to boost employee engagement.

    1. Purposefully craft your corporate culture. Cultivate a culture with a clear purpose and identity, in which employees can feel that their work has meaning and they’re contributing to something that matters. Offer opportunities for feedback and the presentation of new ideas, and show employees that you value what they have to offer.
    2. Connect from the top down. If you want a workforce that shows up for more than just a paycheck, it’s up to those in leadership to model the kind of connection that makes work meaningful. Establish a rapport, getting to know your employees, and consider crafting an employee engagement program with one-on-one mentoring and active communication. Encourage employee interaction, too, using social events and social media to help your team members connect with one another.
    3. Play to your employee’s strengths. One of the simplest ways to engage employees is to give them the freedom and opportunity to show off the strengths they feel are being underutilized. Talk to them about their goals and skills in a meaningful way, and celebrate their successes. When you capitalize on your employees’ natural abilities, you make engagement an organic process, and the work environment becomes more conducive to creativity and innovation.
    4. Learn what makes your team tick. Design listening strategies that help you get to know your employees, whether that means focus groups, one-on-one meetings, or group brainstorming sessions. Be transparent, and let employees know that you really want to know their interests, passions, and goals, both personal and professional.
    5. Provide opportunities for growth and development. Once you know your team’s driving motivations, you can help them pursue their goals and hone their skills. Find ways to develop not just business skills, but also soft skills like emotional intelligence, and use every resource at your disposal, from coaching and mentoring to corporate training sessions, to help your employees learn and grow.

    One way to help employees learn, grow, and connect is with off-site team training exercises and a big part of making that a success is finding the right site. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on offering training facilities that feature the technology and tools to facilitate learning, with high-quality equipment and exceptional service. Our computer labs and other spaces come equipped with internet accessibility, printers and fax machines, Wi-Fi setup, on-site tech support, full projection systems, workstations, whiteboards, and computers furnished with the most cutting edge technology, to ensure that your training event is a success.

  • Easy Ways to Become a Better Leader

    It seems there’s always a new book, a new theory, or a new method out there to help people become better leaders. When it comes down to it, though, the things that make a good leader have been consistent throughout the ages. Do you know how to effectively lead your team? Put some of these time-honored tips to work for you.

    • Be positive. Smile! If you want to inspire those you lead, having an attitude of upbeat optimism will go a long way. When the members of your team see that you’re passionate about the work you’re doing, they’ll be more likely to care about helping you reach your goals. Show people you care about the work they’re doing and let them know you appreciate their contribution.
    • Communicate effectively. One-on-one communication with members of your group lets your people know you care about what they have to say. When people feel they’re being heard, and that their input is valued, they’re more likely to want to follow your lead.
    • Alleviate workplace stress. People often switch jobs because of work-related frustrations and stressors. Some of these issues can be easily solved by a leader who is paying attention and working to make the office a pleasant place to work. When you relieve your team members of stress, you’ll find you have less stress as well.
    • Reward achievement. Encourage your team members to contribute to the group by welcoming their ideas, letting them take part in decision making, and rewarding their problem-solving efforts. Help them to feel included, and provide recognition and rewards for achievements.
    • Encourage engagement. Work with your team to set goals, and foster creativity by encouraging them to express themselves and stretch their limits. Promote a sense of teamwork, and create a culture of connection, in which teammates are invested in each other’s success.
    • Promote growth and development. Give your people the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop their skills. Encourage cross-training, and give them the opportunity to learn new skills. Give them opportunities to challenge themselves and put their talents to use in a productive way. Take the time to provide training, taking them out of the office environment periodically and dedicating time to learning and development.

    If you’re looking for a place to hold training sessions that encourage employee growth, it’s important to find a location that’s equipped with the right technology and tools to facilitate learning.

  • Why Employee Motivation Matters & How to Motivate Yours

    Whether you’re trying to recruit new talent, retain employees, or simply boost team morale, it all comes down to one thing: employee motivation. Motivated employees are engaged and engaging, productive and inspired. When people are happy in their work, it creates a ripple effect that’s felt throughout the company. The question is, how can you keep your team happy and motivated?

    • Create a culture of trust. Shifting into a leadership culture that’s more collaborative, trusting in the competence of your workforce, and viewing the workplace from a “we” perspective rather than “I” creates an environment that fosters high levels of performance. You can build trust by being honest with employees during difficult times, recognizing them for jobs well done, giving them the autonomy to structure their own work patterns and habits, and giving them a voice in their own job design. With a work environment in which they feel connected and trusted, where personal work relationships between colleagues are facilitated and team chemistry is valued, employees will enjoy their jobs more, have more empathy for their workmates, and experience less burnout.
    • Communicate Effectively. It’s human nature to want to be “in the know” and employees need complete information to help them make good decisions about their work. With that in mind, make sure to keep team members up to date not just with staff meetings, but with daily communication one-on-one. Encourage employees to come to you with questions, requests for support, ideas about their work, or information about progress on their projects. Encouraging communication between employees and company executives is also a good way to support motivation in the workplace. Talk to employees about work, but talk to them about important events in their personal lives as well, making it clear that you value them as people.
    • Prioritize People. Good leaders know how to balance employee engagement with company success, making it clear that people are more important than profits. This means that in times where cutbacks are necessary, you look for ways to cut areas that won’t directly impact your people. This gives employees a feeling of security, and when people feel supported by their company, they’re more likely to be motivated and engaged.
    • Offer employees the chance to self-manage. Employees who feel they have autonomy and independence are more likely to be engaged in and satisfied with their work. Create opportunities for employees to stretch and grow, taking on higher level responsibilities, heading up projects and committees. Provide the right framework for employees to excel, and they’ll rise to the challenge.
    • Provide opportunities for growth. When you create opportunities to develop their skills and abilities, it boosts morale and helps them to find meaning in their work. Help employees set goals for personal development and help them find opportunities to cross-train with other responsibilities. Invite staff members to important meetings, and take them to interesting and unusual events. Plan workshops and other educational opportunities outside of the office, in order to promote continuing education.

    If you’re looking for a place to hold training sessions that encourage employee growth, it’s important to find a location that’s equipped with the right technology and tools to facilitate learning. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on the high-quality equipment and exceptional service you’ll find at our training facilities. Our computer labs and other spaces come equipped with internet accessibility, printers and fax machines, Wi-Fi setup, on-site tech support, full projection systems, workstations, whiteboards, and computers furnished with the most cutting edge technology, to ensure that your training event is a success.

  • Planning the Perfect Corporate Event

    Do you have what it takes to keep up in the competitive world of corporate events? With the number of conferences and corporate events rising, you’ve got to be at the top of your game to hold your attendees’ attention. Whether it’s a product launch, training conference, team-building event, celebration of a milestone, or some other type of occasion, you need a solid plan to make sure your corporate event goes off without a hitch.

    • Establish your objectives well in advance of the event. Laying the foundation for a successful event involves determining the purpose of the event at least eight to twelve months in advance. Determine how many people will attend, if you’ll have a larger audience through live streaming, where it will take place, and the scope of your budget.
    • Brainstorm the format that will best fit your goals. Will your objectives be better served by a tradeshow, a conference, a seminar, or a dinner? Who is your target audience? Once you know who will attend and what you want to convey, you’ll be able to choose a theme that will hold the attention of the participants.
    • Find the right venue. Look for a venue that’s conveniently located, with the infrastructure in place to make your event a success, and an aesthetic appeal that will elevate the excitement level of the attendees. Ideally, choose a location with experience accommodating the kind of event you’re hosting, and technology that will facilitate an effective experience for all involved. As the event draws near, and you’ve got to arrange things like catering, security, event signage, and permits, it will prove invaluable to be partnered with a venue that can provide support and high-level service.
    • Do your homework when choosing event participants. Speakers, presenters, sponsors, staff, and partner organizations can all make or break your event, so do some research before you choose the people who will be involved. Make sure everyone understands the goals of your event, and have your plans in place before you reach out: aspects like sponsorship packages compensation for speakers and staff should be well defined ahead of time.
    • Create a balanced agenda, to keep participants engaged. Develop your schedule at least three or four months in advance, balancing speakers and workshops with interactive activities to hold the interest of your audience. Reach out for input ahead of time, and find ways to incorporate innovative technology into your event.
    • As the event approaches, work to build excitement. Create a branded website specific to your event, using images and copy that indicate your goals and give attendees a glimpse of what they can expect. Make sure the website is optimized for use on mobile devices and has the infrastructure necessary to handle increased traffic as the excitement builds. Use every tool at your disposal to promote your event, from social media and blog posts to paid advertisements and ticket distribution. Use email and social media not only to create a buzz but also to engage attendees and start a conversation.

    If you’re ready to host the perfect corporate event in a location that’s well equipped to meet your company’s needs, we’ve got the perfect location for you. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on the high-quality equipment and exceptional service you’ll find at our facilities.

  • Top 5 Trends in Ongoing Employee Training

    It’s a new year- how are you training your team to remain competitive? Any company’s most valuable asset is its human capital, so investing in your people is a smart way to start the year. Making sure you’re investing effectively, though, is a matter of paying attention to the trends in learning and development that are being successfully utilized by efficacious corporations in 2019.

    1. Use training as an incentive. When your company offers up-to-date training, using new tools and mediums and utilizing current technology, it can put you ahead in the competition for new talent. What’s more, learning and development can be leveraged as an employee benefit, helping you engage and retain your current employees as well as attracting future employees. Positing training as part of your benefits package, right alongside your retirement and health plans, makes good use of your resources.
    2. Focus on soft skills development. Technical knowledge and business sense are important, but without the development of soft skills like emotional intelligence, negotiation, collaboration, and communication, employees are not going to reach their full potential. Companies looking to broaden their reach, increase their diversity, and build a meaningful corporate culture that fosters employee retention and improves leadership skills would do well to incorporate soft skills into their training programs.
    3. Embrace gamification. Gamification is useful not only because it acts as a built-in reward system for employees, but also because it can be used to enhance digital skills. Digital skills should be a major focus of any training program because the speed at which technology moves necessitates the continual development of this kind of knowledge.
    4. Collaborate with executives. One important trend on the rise is the participation of the C-suite in planning the company’s training program. When HR and the top executives work together to build a culture of learning, it makes it easier to promote the exact goals the leaders are looking to achieve.
    5. Personalize learning. One size fits all is a dated concept that doesn’t work in today’s corporate climate. In order to provide effective training, it’s important to target the particular needs of the employee, focusing on the necessary areas of improvement while also engaging and offering personalized feedback.

    When you’re planning an employee training event, look to a location that understands how to facilitate learning. At Texas Training and Conference Centers, we pride ourselves on the high-quality equipment and exceptional service you’ll find at our training facilities. Our computer labs and other spaces come equipped with internet accessibility, printers and fax machines, Wi-Fi setup, on-site tech support, full projection systems, workstations, whiteboards, and computers furnished with the most cutting edge technology, to ensure that your training event is a success.

  • How Does Offsite Training Save Your Company Money?

    For your company’s training program, you may be wondering how you can afford to hold training offsite. The real question is, can you afford not to? Offsite training room facilities in Houston can represent savings for your company over your company over your current, on-location training procedures. Here is a closer look at how offsite training can help your business reduce your training budget and use your resources more efficiently.

    Take Advantage of Virtual Training How Does Offsite Training Save Your Company Money?

    Offsite training facilities often have the technology necessary to host virtual training sessions. This kind of training allows you to simultaneously train remote and local employees, without the need for your remote staff to travel to your offices. Your business won’t have to invest in travel and accommodation for remote employees, which represents significant savings, and the ability to hold a single training session, regardless of employees’ locations will also cut costs for your business and let you use everyone’s time more efficiently.

    Give Employees Hands-On Experience

    Offsite training facilities are equipped with more workstations than your office can dedicate to training, and they offer access to more of the technology you need to allow employees to participate actively in their training. The ability let all employees who are being trained to get hands-on experience with the tools they will be using makes training more effective. When employees actually have to work with the tools they will be using in the workplace, then they are more likely to retain the information than they are when they just listen to instructions. This will reduce the need for additional training and allow employees to adapt to their tasks faster.

    Reduce Distractions for New and Existing Employees

    When you host training at your office, the bustle of the workplace can be distracting to the team being trained, and your existing employees can be distracted and disrupted by the training exercise. Using an offsite training facility isolates the activity so that everyone involved can concentrate fully on the training activities.
