Life Would Be Easy If It Weren't for Other People!
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. People with high self esteem are accountable for their own actions, accept responsibility for their performance, behavior and attitudes, 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!
