5 Simple Que
stions That Solve Problems, Build Relationships & Get the Job Done

Speaker: Carol Bowser

We all know that communication and collaboration are essential to solving problems, building productive working relationships and working as a team to get the job done. Yet, very few organizations have an easy to duplicate, not too hard to remember, effective method for accomplishing collaboration. 5 simple questions change all of that. 5 questions that embody empathy, acknowledgement, problem solving, organizational values, and a movement to action. Pretty amazing.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn a method for engaging in critical conversations with customers, co-workers & supervisors.
  • Hone your ability to distinguish Proposals from Problems.
  • Gain insight into why most conversations go sideways or nowhere at all.
  • Practice techniques for preparing for conversations that will set you & the other person up for success.
  • Learn not only what to say, but how to say it for maximum results.

Attorney: After several years of practicing Employment Law, Carol decided to become an entrepreneur and work with organizations to prevent costly workplace conflict and share the gospel of “Managing Conflict-Empowering People.” She knows the difference between what employees perceive to be unfair and what is illegal.

Speaker: Barry Long

His back was broken in ten places, his spinal cord destroyed. When he understood that he would never walk again, he struggled through his rehabilitation and started his life over again through unconditional determination, positive personal energy, and a sense of humor. Barry discovered early in his recovery that choosing to live with a genuinely positive attitude, setting realistic and achievable goals, and learning to ask for help makes anything possible.

Rolling in his wheelchair, Barry has traveled extensively through 19 countries. He has learned meaningful lessons about overcoming life’s challenges, and he shares these in a style that is as distinctive as it is refreshing in its candor, its honestly, its humor, and its message of hope and success.

Barry has remained active in competitive wheelchair sports and he takes his unbridled enthusiasm for life to new heights, which he shares with his audiences. He is an avid participant in extreme sports like snow skiing, water skiing, road racing, wheelchair biking, and skydiving.
