Featured Keynote Programs

Conflict Management

Corporations spend millions of dollars annually to resolve disputes with employees, clients and business partners. Productivity, the retention of employees and customers, and protection of key business initiatives are all at risk if there is no internal system for early, collaborative resolution of conflict.  Joy  provides companies and employees with tools and insights that can prevent problems in your office from eating up hours of valuable company time. Believe it or not, employee quarrels can really savage your bottom line if you're not careful. Even if you have an internal conflict resolution training program in place, that may not be enough to quiet the ranks. Indeed, sometimes outside help is the most cost-effective means to deal with these issues. Customer Service

In today’s competitive environment, providing superior customer service is not an option, it’s a necessity.  You can play a critical role in helping your organization achieve an outstanding service-oriented climate.  This session will focus on techniques you can use to achieve a higher level of customer service including how to adopt a customer focused attitude, how to identify and exceed customer expectations, speaking the language of service, and creating and maintaining an image of excellence.
