Following are a list of my most popular workshops and presentations. Other topics are available upon request.All programs are tailored to meet the specific needs of your business:


1.  The Platinum Rule: Treat Other People the Way They Want to be Treated!

People have different personality styles, and therefore tend to communicate differently.By observing their style, and adjusting yours, you can establish rapport more quickly, communicate better, and enhance your relationships.This increased ability to communicate reduces tension, helps build better work teams, increases sales, and leads to more effective and productive relationships.
