Dallas, TX, December 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Global P.E.C. Academy, is the world’s first and only company of its kind to provide the opportunity to receive a Global Certification as a Certified Protocol, Etiquette & Civility Professional (CPECP). The certification program is designed to address the needs of current and future leaders in a rapidly changing economic environment inclusive of in-depth study with a global perspective. The program launches December 2, 2011 and can be completed in one year, or extended over two years.
CPECP will improve communication skills, business etiquette and professional image. Civility is also a part that is often overlooked. Every action done in a company ought to be with some sign of respect to those that are present. This is also brought to the table and wrapped into the curriculum; as it is an integral element often missed in leadership training. By earning the certification, bearers will demonstrate they are ready to succeed in a modern, global environment. It also demonstrates that you can transcend and transform your own human potential for global business success. “Recognizing that ideas are adaptable from an everyday business dinner to a meeting with a four-star general, is critical in training the new breed of global leaders,” says Co-founding partner of Global P.E.C. Academy Colleen Rickenbacher, CMP, CSEP, CPC, CTA author of Be On Your Best Cultural Behavior, Be On Your Best Business Behavior and co-author of The Big Book of People Skills Games, a 20-year veteran of the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau, and staff speaker at Cornell University.
The groundbreaking program brings into play the critical nature of the new ideas in leadership produced by protocol, etiquette and civility experts. As opposed to other academic teaching and testing, here the participant has to demonstrate they have learned the process through hands-on integration of what they are learning throughout the year long process with interaction and assignments, many in group settings. “To succeed in business you must know the rules and the CPECP develops leaders to have personal command,” said Deborah King, AICI CIP, CPC, board member of the Image Consultants' Society International (ICSI) serving the Indian Sub-Continent and Middle East, founding member for the Association of Image Consultants International (AICI) Civility Counts Project, and co-founder of Global P.E.C. Academy.
Having a strong personality that includes using assertive measures used to be considered extremely important to be an effective leader. Making people laugh, putting together programs to drive performance are now also considered important, and they are. However, being too assertive, and being known as the “boss with a great sense of humor” may not always mean you are someone people want to follow. The best leaders lead by example. They are strong in moral character, hold steadfast under pressure, know how to carry themselves and are not reactionary. Great leaders are people others want to emulate. “These skills can be developed,” says Michael D. Lynn, CEM, CME, CMM, CMP, CPC, also co-founding partner of Global P.E.C. Academy. He states, “The leadership modules are magnificent and orderly in how they are presented and teach these skills effectively.” During Lynn’s 20-year tenure in the Air Force, he served in the Prestigious 89th Military Wing flying with the U.S. President, Vice President, Cabinet and Foreign Leaders as a Special Mission Flight Engineer. He has seven accreditations and awards, plus holds key positions in over 12 professional and community associations including Protocol Diplomacy International – Protocol Officers Association and the International Center Exhibition & Event Marketing.
