Science of Coping

No one is immune to crisis/grief events. A good employee may seem like a bad employee when saddled with crisis. This workshop concentrates on how to handle the challenging tasks of retaining good mental and physical health while restoring focus on the job.

How to Unlock the Mysteries and Lies of Grief/Crisis

By covering the human elements combined with the newest research and qualitative studies, this workshop reaches new levels for thinking outside the box when dealing with those that are hurting. The workshop focuses on how loss dominoes into every area of a person's life and how the family dynamics are affected

Human Resources: Understanding the Uniqueness of Perception

The workshop is given in a creative and fun way to open the avenues of thinking and change perceptions.
