Life Would Be Easy If It Weren't for Other
Challenge: Dealing With Difficult People
Life is full of difficult people, situations and demands, but
we never quite learn to live with them. This fast-paced, entertaining
session explores the differences between men and women, touches
on marriage and parenting, and then moves into the workplace
describing the whiner, tattler, gossiper, complainer, and the
employee who says, "That's not my job". Though humorous
and motivational, this presentation is full of information and
techniques that can be applied immediately to home and work
to help people build better relationships, open lines of communication,
and enjoy life a little bit more.

Self Esteem and the Six-Second Secret
Challenge: Developing a Personal Foundation
for Student Success
Self esteem is much more than simply feeling good about oneself.

and treat others with dignity and respect. One of the most popular
presentations within the Challenge Series, the profoundly simple
“six-second secret” can dramatically impact a teacher’s
day-to-day communication patterns that characterize their classrooms.
Learn the powerful three-step approach that can change any student’s
difficult behavior into a WINNING ATTITUDE!

techniques to empower teachers to conduct positive and beneficial
