- How to effectively manage a balance between the art and science of coaching.
- How a better understanding of human nature, behavior and personality can enhance your programming and results.
- More than an art: understanding the science of communication, influence and behavior change
- The upside to your darkside: how your “negative” personality traits can be your best asset when leading others.
- Leaving a legacy, the lost art of mentoring
