This program shows people just what they can accomplish when they really connect with those they're working with.

THINGS ABOUT CHANGE THAT WILL NEVER CHANGE

When change comes into our life, our anxiety acts like a magnifying glass. It magnifies all the possible things we're worried about. It consumes our thoughts throughout the day (and often the night). We are full of what-ifs and maybe still thinking about the "why". And some of us may be stuck on "I can't", when "can't" isn't an option.

Paul's powerful presentation on change will show you that despite the changes going on around you, there's a lot you can hang onto: things around you that can make the transition easier and more successful. You may not be able to bring it all with you but there are lots of things about change that won't change.

WHEN SAYING "TRUST ME" IS NOT ENOUGH.

Every action we take with someone either creates trust, maintains trust, or takes away from it. 

You can't just say "Trust me!" yet we do all the time.

Trust is built over time through words and actions. It's a slow process that has to be handled with great care and respect, but once you have trust incredible things can happen. People can go where they never thought possible. Risk, all of a sudden, shrinks almost out of sight. Trust can make you comfortable with the uncomfortable.

 

Paul has developed a fascinating presentation that allows your people to experience and examine how to build trust as group and to harness it's incredible power

The powerful impact that occurs to build mind-trust and connectivity to others on a whole new level makes his program one of the most memorable in my experience.
