A local expert, who works with some of the area’s biggest brands, is launching a rebrand and new services that help you communicate, collaborate, and be more productive.
After years of experience as an entrepreneur working with a wide range of different businesses, Monica Scalf learned what works well. So much so, she rebranded her business as The Work Well Group.
Formerly the Playground Group, Scalf’s business offers three subsets of services for clients: customized workshops, live personal branding workshop and personality assessments and goal coaching.
For its customized workshops, the Work Well Group supplies assistance in communication, presentation skills, personal branding, team building, stress management and more.
To launch the rebrand and give the business community a glimpse into a Work Well Group Workshop, Scalf is hosting an “Authentic Personal Branding Workshop” on Nov. 16 from 8:30-10:30am. It will take place at the AC Hotel by Marriott Cincinnati at Liberty Center, located at 7505 Gibson Street, Liberty Township, OH 45069. The registration fee is typically $219, but you can use the code CINCYCHIC to save $20 here.
“The class will be a small group so plenty of one on one interaction takes place,” Scalf says. “We do exercises and activities, look at examples, and each participant leaves with a list of action items they can complete to get started on improving their personal brands right away.”
According to Scalf, the Authentic Personal Branding workshop will equip participants with a roadmap for how to elevate and express their best personal brand. “A clear, focused and authentic personal brand can be key in attracting new clients and career opportunities,” Scalf says. “It’s tough to work on your personal brand in isolation – either there’s never enough time with all of the other tasks you have to do, or it’s overwhelming because you don’t know where to start or how to go about it. This class will walk participants through a step-by-step process for uncovering their best personal brand and sharing it with the world.”
Prior to starting her business, Scalf was a professor at Xavier University. She also has experience in sales and is the author of “Live in the Little: 52 Ways to Find the Extra in the Ordinary.”
When referring to the personality assessment and goal coaching, Scalf says she utilizes the DISC Assessment, centering on four personality traits: dominance, influence, steadiness and conscientiousness. Once these results are rendered, the workshops help participants understand the results and work better with co-workers.
“In general, The Work Well Group provides workshops, consulting, and coaching that helps teams and individuals create positive and productive workplaces,” Scalf explains. “We have worked with clients including eBay, P&G, Great American Insurance, Deloitte, Lexis Nexis and more. We have a passion for helping people learn how to better communicate and collaborate so that work is less stressful, more productive, and more fun.”
Scalf says the end result of her work is to strengthen the individual, which helps them interact with others at their best, which in turn strengthens a company’s bottom line. “When people learn the skills that help them to work well – how to communicate, collaborate, and be more productive,” she adds, “work becomes more fulfilling and more fun; individuals and teams get better results.”
