Speaking Topics

I am a frequent (and an often repeat) speaker at company meetings and association conferences.

Topics include:
* Best Job Ever - HIRE Right, ENGAGE Employees, and LEAD Well
* Emotional Intelligence - Be Good ... or Be Memorable
* Job Expectations - Giving Clear Directions to Employees
* Communication & Team - Unlocking Behavior Styles: A Key to Success

My sessions are well-attended because they are interactive, offer real-time feedback opportunities, and are designed to insure participants leave with "next steps for action."
