“I gained a lot of valuable information that I can immediately apply not only to my job but in my day-to-day interactions with others.  She shared a lot of her own experiences and taught the class how to recognize and how to deal with our individual personalities and how to interact with others. My “ah-ha” moment:I learned about a specific medical condition that affects how people interact or deal with others. This was the most important lesson for me personally and I am looking into learning more about this condition.”

Curtis Haynes, Service Training Manager, Berry Material Handling, Wichita, KS

“This is one of the first times that I have attended a program where I felt so comfortable and relaxed.  The group activities all were fun and informational. I especially like the fact that she didn’t just read her PowerPoint presentation.  As she went along she added more information, and gave more in-depth information through the use of real life situations.”  

Terri M. Lillback, Tramco Inc., Wichita, KS

“I enjoyed attending a training class that was directed towards managers and the fact I could interact with managers from other companies that deal with the same issues we do.” 

Andrew Schrader, Foley Equipment Company, Topeka, KS

If you are being coached by your management to be more positive, and upbeat, this class will help you deal with that.   If you are frustrated because your honesty about results and outcomes is deemed too harsh, this class can put things into perspective for you.

This class can be done in a 4-hour block, at your facility for several teams at once.  Contact me to discuss how we can make that happen.  paula.seiwert@wichita.edu
