Changing Worlds with Words
This one-day (or two-day in depth) training identifies key elements to consider when communicating life altering news. How, where and the words chosen are critical essentials to a healthy grieving process. Most businesses have not planned for "what to do" when an employee dies or is killed. Being the one responsible for delivering such news can lead to stress and anxiety while being prepared reduces these reactions. Included is a discussion of in-house policy and procedures for such events.

"Reducing the Impact of Critical Incidents: What Every HR Professional Needs to know"
This presentation will focus on the different challenges faced by HR directors and managers when sudden and unexpected tragic events occur in the workplace. Learn what to do first and how to assess the impact on employees. What is your current short and long term plan for "Human Continuity"? What can you do to prepare the workforce to deal with traumatic events and disasters? What is the corporate strategy for increasing psychological and physical endurance? What can the organization do to minimize traumatic stress?

Leadership Communication Skills
Effective leadership begins with good communication. This program presents effective communication techniques that enhance information exchanges between people. Too often, the message sent is not the same message received. This interactive program uses a combination of real-life scenarios and tabletop exercises designed to examine responses and practice new approaches. Effective words, techniques and body language can tighten the focus and improve the clarity of the intended message resulting in increased productivity.

Stress Management: Live Happier, Healthier, Longer
This course increases understanding of the Human Stress Response and teaches participants how to manage stress levels in both themselves and others. This course facilitates the information exchange necessary to offer prompt and effective services to affected employees and family members. The program identifies how past experiences influence current situations and why people react differently (Fight, Flight or Freeze) under stress. Practical exercises and discussion demonstrate how to self-regulate one's own reactions which, in turn, calms others. This important seminar is a necessity for anyone who works, lives and interacts with others!


This one day program provides participants with insights and techniques that allow one to change communication styles to "instantly" relate well with others. This training is ideal for improving communications with those "Difficult People" in your life: supervisors, co-workers, customers, children and spouses.
