I Can’t Get No Satisfaction

Do you feel like you are just putting in time when you come to work? Hopefully not. Do you feel appreciated, valued and like you are an important part of the team? Don’t fear if you don’t -  You’re not alone! Learn to get “satisfaction.” 

Sometimes You’re The Windshield…Sometimes You’re The Bug

Sometimes life gets the better of us, and we ask “Whose life is it, anyway”? When you stop living for yourself, and live only for everyone else, something is missing! In this humorous keynote, Rhonda shares that not only do we all experience this feeling – it’s OK to be frustrated!

Charisma, Credibility & Confidence. The 1-2-3 Plan for Success!

Why is it that some people can walk into a room, and everyone will notice. Or with others, there is that immediate connection with (or the opposite – the immediate dislike!) Everyone wants to be the person that exudes Charisma, Credibility and Confidence. 

Make the Leap to Remarkable

I get it, you’re good at what you do – but are you remarkable? Do you really stand out as “one of the best”? And if you’ve been doing your job for a while now (lets say, over five years), how do you know if you are that good anymore? 

Teambuilding – A Lesson in Leadership

What is “Leadership” anyway?  Leadership in 2013 is very different than Leadership in 1985.  Do you know how to lead through your current role – regardless of your title?  Do you know how to lead so others will want to follow? 

Northern Savings Credit Union

Wow! Last night's webinar was so worth my time. You kept us entertained while delivering such powerful and needed strategies for dealing with gossip.

Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo

I took your minute taking course a couple years ago and I absolutely loved it! I was so bad at taking minutes, and I hated doing it until I took your course. Who knew this topic could be so fun!

Covenant Health, Edmonton

I really enjoyed your training and feel more confident about taking minutes. I wanted you to know your training is one of the best sessions I've ever attended. I really liked your relaxed, yet professional teaching style and your sense of humour really make the day enjoyable.

Administrative team Art Gallery of Ontario

Thank you Rhonda. It was a very good educational event. You have an ability to make your class to be, at the same time, very informative and also very entertaining.
