Identifying and curing “dysfunction” at work – from challenging individuals to dysfunctional cultures, the steps we can take at any level in the organization

Creating and promoting “healthy” and productive relationships at work – not only having the conversations we need to have, but also having them in the way we need to have them

Finding personal fulfillment at and through work – from identifying one’s calling to achieving work / life balance

Recognizing and managing emotions in the workplace that can stem from stress, layoffs, frustration, conflict, abuse and miscommunication

Leading organizations through change - what leaders say, how they say it and when they say it can be the deciding variables between healthy and dysfunctional.
