Come join me as I share my team building strategies for success. A team of coworkers is like a pit crew—everyone is important. In this high-energy program, participants will gain a wealth of practical tips for team cohesiveness.
LEADERSHIP...IT'S NOT JUST A FANCY TITLE
It's been said that we follow people we feel comfortable with; I couldn't agree more! Titles like "manager" and "supervisor" are nice, but they do not necessarily guarantee people will follow. This seminar will give you skills and strategies to enhance your leadership potential. When you can learn to be assertive rather than aggressive, you increase your leadership ability and wellbeing for others. The philosophy of leadership addressed in this program is: be the type of leader people want to follow, not have to follow.

Effective communication is the key to success. This fun-filled and informative program will share research regarding the four general personalities we communicate with daily. Come find out if you're a 4x4, Volvo™, Sports Car, or Minivan.

The program includes extensive examples of how to interact with each unique individual. Once your team can identify their vehicle styles and the styles of their coworkers, the sky is the limit!

I have enjoyed public speaking for many years and am ready to show you strategies that are guaranteed to help reduce apprehension. Whether you are speaking to five people or 500, this program helps you gain the confidence you need to be the poised, polished, and professional speaker that lives within all of us.
