What is my Superpower?
Building Businesses and Training Teams!
After spending over 20 years in Corporate America, negotiating tech contracts with fortune100 companies, earning over $1.4 billion in sales with clients in many different industries (yes, that is "B" for billion!), implementing processes to streamline and cut costs, and how NOT to treat a team, I "Jumped" out of the crazy corporate life and took my business acumen to the streets.
I launched several successful companies over the last 14 years ranging from Family Entertainment and Event Planning to Consulting and Training. My visionary strength is helping small businesses understand the "HOW TO" get to the next level in their business whether it's time to pivot or move in a different direction.
The most valuable lessons I have learned over the years:
1.) Have a plan and work that plan! Be ready to move to Plan B if needed!
2.) Build a strong team that has talents you do not have - regardless of their age!
3.) Trust until there is a reason not to!
4.) Protect your time! Don't let distractions steal your time from actions that will drive results!
5.) Only one touch to a task! If you are touching tasks in multiple steps, you are wasting time and money!

This course guides workshop participants on a path of heightened self-awareness and personal discovery. DISC Workshop Leaders can make this their cornerstone seminar, revealing each participant’s unique behavioral style blend and “how to” apply that knowledge prescriptively, boosting communication effectiveness.

Our strongest relationships are rooted in trust. An organization’s most critical relationships exist between its leaders and individual contributors.

Teamwork is defined by Merriam-Webster as, “the combined action of a group of people, especially when effective and efficient.” With this DISC Workshop, you can instill organizations with the skills, strategies, and tools to create teams that excel.

One of DISC’s most intriguing applications is leveraging behavioral identification and adaptability for sales. Being able to efficiently identify the behavioral styles of others empowers professionals with the insights to adapt their selling style, to meet the buying style of their prospect. As seasoned sales professionals will tell you, winning a new client is really just the beginning of the professional selling process. Building and maintaining your relationships is critical for sustained, reciprocal sales success. Participants will also learn how to strengthen these relationships, in order to transform buyers into brand advocates. Other topics covered in this course include: identifying client needs, managing client expectations, and a complete exploration of the sales process from A to Z.
