Anna Maravelas: Self-Defeating Habits of Otherwise Brilliant People

Anna Maravelas: Self-Defeating Habits of Otherwise Brilliant People

An alarming eighty-eight percent of Americans cite hostility, desk-rage, and workplace incivility as top concerns. Anna Maravelas helps executives, supervisors, managers - and the people that work for them - protect pride, profit, and productivity from these disabling emotions. Anna Maravelas is a therapist, the author of How to Reduce Workplace Conflict and Stress, and founder of Thera Rising, Inc., in St. Paul, Minnesota. Anna Maravelas has improved productivity and profits, resolved conflict, and restored trust in client organizations for more than 20 years.

Anna Maravelas has delivered hundreds of keynotes and seminars and her work is consistently cited for its excellence. Her most popular topic, "The Self-Defeating Habits of Otherwise-Brilliant People" receives enthusiastic responses across the United States and England. Anna Maravelas' expertise, warmth, and humor merge into an unusual ability to express profound insights and convey powerful, lasting skills that result in permanent change.

Her groundbreaking strategies have appeared in The New York Times, The American Bar Association Journal, Harvard Management Update, Healthcare Risk Management, the American Management Association Journal, Training Magazine, and Continental Air.

Anna Maravelas' presentations are full of insight, laughter, and surprise, and reveal her techniques for creating the attitudes and skills that are necessary for employee and client satisfaction, eliminating the root cause of destructive, costly conflicts, dismantling invisible walls that destroy profit and relationships, and managing irritability in customers and colleagues. She shows how to be "hard on the problem but soft on the people," replacing turf wars with climates of appreciation and achievement, and lowering the risk for heart disease and depression.

The combination of Anna Maravelas' unique insights, unforgettable stories, humor, and warmth results in a delightful ability to convey profound insights in an entertaining and moving manner. Audiences are captivated by her wisdom and charm, and she is internationally recognized for her ability to transform negative cultures into climates of respect, fiscal responsibility, and pride.

Her clients include Fortune 500 companies, police departments, government bodies, and family owned businesses; a partial list includes 3-M, American Express, American Red Cross, the Corporate Assessment and Training Center, General Mills, Head Start, Honeywell, KPMG, Land Rover UK, Prudential Insurance, and Phillips Electronics, UK.

Anna Maravelas holds a graduate degree in psychology and has completed postgraduate work in conflict resolution at Harvard Law School's Negotiation Project.
