So many non-profit organizations are started by passionate people who want to make the world a better place. Non-profits often operate on slim budgets and remain stagnant, or worse, fail. It isn't because of the lack of heart, dedication or passion. It's because of the lack of a strategic plan, goals and a solid team of volunteers. Let's talk about getting the right people in place and keeping them happy. MORE >

Those in management are constantly seeking ways to relate to and work with their direct reports. This presentation, based on the book by the same name, provides managers with guidelines for developing a communication style that will enable them to engage and motivate those people with whom they work. MORE >All people in management start with basic communication skills which they use as their default. Some of those skills work for them, some of them do not. A Connect & Succeed Communication Style helps managers to identify the communication skills that work for them and enhance those skills even further. This approach also helps those in management find common ground and connections with all of their employees/associates making the work more rewarding and productive for everyone.
It is apparent over the last few years that the United States is deeply divided. There are not only many different perspectives but, those perspectives are often rigidly held. But, what can be done, and more importantly what can each of us do to bring the people of this country together? MORE >I believe it starts with each of us and our communication with our family, friends, and work colleagues. To bridge differences and promote understanding of different perspectives, we need to find common ground with one another. We need to find commonalities not just differences. We can start a dialogue with people we disagree with by first finding the areas on which we agree. It is clear that there are more areas on which we agree than on which we disagree, but we often lose perspective when someone challenges or disagrees with us.
When we put this to work in our communication we develop "connections" with one another. This connection leads to a greater respect and understanding of diverse perspectives.
I've seen this approach make a tremendous difference with people and groups. And it's not hard for people to adopt. They already have the skills needed. It's just matter of applying some existing skills differently, enhancing other skills, and putting it all together with every person with whom they interact in every conversation.
I share my perspectives on how common ground connections can help bridge differences and bring people together with participants at conferences and meetings. I work with individuals and companies on identifying and resolving communication issues and improving existing communication skills.
Now more than ever we need to communicate in such a way that we establish common ground connections with everyone. I hope to work with you in helping you do that.
The “business plan” is a common tool used by many companies. Too often, preparing a business plan is done because “that’s what businesses do” and it becomes a rote exercise that inevitably yields little or no productive results. You’re about to discover a completely new version of the business plan – a business plan that actually serves you. MORE >It serves you because it starts with your passion and translates into specific actions. It begins with the entrepreneur and ends with your inner manager. It also recognizes change as your constant companion. This business plan begins with a different set of operating assumptions than does the “traditional” business plan. Your attitude and how you translate your goals into projects and tasks are the key factors that make it a success.
Perfect for small business owners, this seminar will cover:
- Understanding the importance of an Annual Plan
- Assess how your business is currently functioning
- Decide what to focus on for best results
- Create quarterly goals and monthly actions
- Learn how to budget for growth
