    “How to Turn Negativity into Possibility

    This flagship topic is the original topic with which I started my business and was the basis for the tag line “Negativity to Possibility” (still an alternate domain name for the and website.) 

    We’re now using “Helping People Work Together Better” as the tagline and topic requests have tended toward the more positive-sounding titles.  However, the “stay-positive-play-nicely” theme of this presentation has carried over into other presentations as well.

    This topic is most frequently requested by clients whose employees have to deal with negativity on a regular basis and/or need coping strategies to be able to see the half-full vs. half-empty perspective of a challenging work situation.

    Please take a look at client list and client testimonials.  See below for an example of content provided in this presentation.   I look forward to collaborating with you! Sarita
