“I remember the ‘work of leadership’ like it was yesterday; how difficult it was to motivate staff, come up with strategies to create team spirit, deal with conflict and, oh yes, the communication issues galore! That’s why I love what I do as an HR Trainer. After more than 30 years in a number of leadership positions throughout my career, I am acutely aware of these leadership challenges. My years of experience, followed by professional education, have given me the expertise to offer modern-day leadership strategies that fit with today’s workforce. The style of leadership is completely different from the baby boomers who believed in a job for life. Whether you’re the leader of a small team, manager of a large retail store, or CEO of a global corporation, you have to learn how to genuinely connect with your people to be the person they will respect and follow."
