WILBRAHAM — Giombetti Associates, a leadership institute providing behaviorally based talent development and acquisition services, will host a series of Common Application Workshops to assist students and their parents in the process of applying to college. The first two sessions will take place Wednesday, Aug. 11, and Sunday, Aug. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Giombetti Associates office, 2377 Boston Road, Unit 2, Wilbraham. Only four students will be admitted to each session, allowing for more personal attention.

“Applying to college may be the most stressful thing teenagers have had to face in their young lives,” said Ross Giombetti, president of Giombetti Associates. “We get a lot of questions and concerns about the application process through our work with student career coaching. Our hope is that these workshops can serve as a resource for families working through the process, offering support, guidance, and expert knowledge.”

During the two-hour workshop, student career coach and college-application expert Laura Lucarelle will walk students through the process step by step, answering questions and offering advice tailored specifically to their situation along the way. Lucarelle offers more than 25 years of experience counseling a wide range of students and families. She worked for eight years in higher education as an admissions counselor, where her responsibilities included reviewing applications and visiting high schools to represent the college and recruit students.

“Laura has dedicated much of her life to helping students achieve their dreams,” Giombetti said. “Her first-hand knowledge of the higher-education system will be an asset to anyone who takes this workshop. The intimate nature of these events will help students get one-on-one attention with a professional who has been in the position to admit students into college, and who specializes in making the college-application process easier and even enjoyable.”

WILBRAHAM — Giombetti Associates, a leadership institute providing behaviorally based talent-development and acquisition services, will host the second of three three-day leadership training programs for 2021 from on Sept. 28-30 at the Delaney House in Holyoke.

“We were so excited to finally return to in-person sessions back in June,” said Ross Giombetti, president of Giombetti Associates. “These training sessions are very hands-on, and our participants benefit greatly from the group atmosphere. We continued our coaching throughout the pandemic, but a computer screen is not the same as a face-to-face interaction.”

This intensive course covers the power of Performance Dynamics and how it can help participants know themselves better; different leadership styles and what makes them effective or ineffective; the importance of being vulnerable and transparent; how to build interpersonal relationships; what effective onboarding is and how it will help participants’ organizations and employees; how to be an efficient communicator; the best way to deliver developmental feedback; building teamwork and the value of team building; and trust, integrity, and more.

Prior to training, each participant goes through Performance Dynamics, an assessment that consists of three personality inventories designed to identify 17 different traits that drive personality and behavior. Then, in an interactive, one-on-one feedback session, the participant develops a newfound self-awareness of their behavioral strengths, learns how to manage their personality more effectively, and gains an understanding of how their personality impacts others.

Throughout the three-day training, the participant is encouraged to constantly refer to and link their personality to the leadership issue being discussed. All the subject matter is wrapped around individual personality and how it affects behavior in different situations, yielding a unique experience of self-exploration.

“This leadership training can benefit anyone in any work environment,” Giombetti said. “Whether the individual is in a leadership position or not, this program can help them to develop skills they can use in the office and in their personal life to grow and develop relationships.”
