Debra LeClair’s Prepared Presentations:

Improving Communications & Team Building:
Creating Win-Win Conversations

Understanding how different personalities are motivated by values that are sometimes at odds with each other is the key to improving communication across teams, within departments and in one on one situations. Using the proven Peoplemap™ System, Debra will lead participants through a process to enhance their self-awareness around their own personality type and communication style. Participants will ultimately learn how to overcome blind spots in order to communicate more effectively by way of all parties getting their ideas heard and needs met. Take aways include a common language for organizations to productively talk about how they communicate and methods that can easily be utilized as soon as an employee walks out of the training.

Managing Stress & Mindfulness:
“One Stress Melt with a Side of Serenity, Please”

Tension and anxiety seem to be an ever-present part of the day, especially in environments where the demands on employees and leaders have measurable increased. Participants will learn what’s really underneath the stress and how to foster their mind’s ability to move into being mindful, while breaking their own cycles of worry and negativity. Debra will facilitate opportunities to shift into a more focused and balanced state of being and then introduce practical ways to integrate mindfulness into daily living, at work, home and everywhere in between.
