The Challenge Series
"Together We Can Build a Better World"

No matter who we are or what we do, life is a continuous series of challenges. This dramatic series of presentations is designed to explore the skills needed to successfully face every challenge: provide quality service, respect others, believe in ourselves, work as a team, establish solid family relationships, and develop a positive attitude. By focusing upon these qualities, each audience member is motivated to face the challenges of building a better world!

If We're Going to Win This Race, We Need to Run in the Same Direction!
Challenge: Creating a Team for Success

Imagine if you will... people working together in a positive environment, sharing ideas, taking risks, supporting one another, resolving conflicts face to face, and treating others with dignity and respect. Does this sound like the Twilight Zone? If so, this information-packed, dynamic presentation is for you! Positive attitudes and a commitment to cooperation are essential to the success of any team -- at work or at home. Excellent keynote presentation.

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.

Creating a Vision: A Goal for the Soul
Challenge: Building a Better Future

Unlike goals, a vision is immeasurable. A vision is what makes life worth living. A vision is what makes you feel GOOD about getting out of bed in the morning, doing your job with a sense of pride, and working with others in a spirit of camaraderie. A vision begins with a belief in yourself because confidence and self esteem give us permission to take risks, explore new territory and examine innovative ideas and procedures. This highly motivational presentation delivers cutting-edge information about the work force of the 90's, empowerment, total quality management, and the demands of a global market.

Learning to Say No in a World Full of Demands!
Challenge: Learning to Take Charge of Your Life and Still Be a Caring Person

Stress is often the outcome of too many demands coupled with our inability to utter a simple "no". This presentation attacks the problem of over-commitment at both ends, exploring the manipulative techniques that others use against us and the underlying factors that too often cause us to give in. In an entertaining and memorable presentation, skills necessary for open and honest communication will be discussed.

When I Said I Needed a Vacation, I Didn't Mean a Guilt Trip!
Challenge: Learning to Handle Guilt

With humor and a flair for drama, this presentation will recreate scenes from life where people are determined to get their own way, through manipulation. Spouses, teens, co-workers, friends, and even 2 year olds are often the agents who try to book us on the "guilt trip". Learn to say "No" and plan your own itinerary for life! Great for a luncheon or after-dinner speech.

Gimme a Break!
Challenge: Balancing home, career, and YOU!

Men and women alike are juggling and struggling with the roles and demands of home and career. Most of us yearn for another few hours in each day, but would we use it to relax, vacation, or get a few needed hours of sleep? Probably not. This entertaining and informative presentation does not concentrate on the usual time management, stress or organizational skills approach but rather focuses on some bottom-line issues that keep us from getting the most out of life.



"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Throughout our questionnaires are comments about how "wonderful", "great", enjoyable", "organized", "the best" YOU are!

Just today, a woman called me from 200 miles away (rural Iowa) to tell be how wonderful a speaker you were and how much she enjoyed "A Saturday For Me". The compliments continue to flow - and we love it! "
