    - Employees are open to influence and motivation: 

"If you tell me what to do, I will do it to protect my job. But if you inspire me to do it, I will do it to the best of my ability." 

Supervisors who understand this simple truth and know how to apply it are the ones who generate results in today's organizations. Great managers develop high-performance teams that get results because they know how to lead a team, not just manage it. 

This program will smooth your transition from individual contributor to supervisor to leader. You will learn the basics like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques, and gain insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership needed to inspire and motivate teams.

    After this seminar, you will be able to:

    • Determine your leadership style and the impact of that style on your team
    • Value human potential and build relationships of mutual trust and respect
    • Delegate responsibility, authority and accountability
    • Create stretch goals for yourself and your team members
    • Bring out the leadership potential in others
    • Give difficult feedback without creating resentment
    • Resolve conflicts quickly before they affect the whole group
    • Develop and maintain procedures that define performance goals
    • Achieve desired outcomes and hold others accountable to predetermined results
    • Use the Dale Carnegie 5 drivers of success
    • Incorporate the 12 qualities of outstanding leaders into your style

    Who should attend:

Any supervisor or manager who wants to increase productivity, lift morale, and improve quality. New supervisors and managers will start off on the right foot, while veterans will learn to make the difficult but necessary transition from managing to exercising effective leadership.

  • - "This electrifying concert musical resurrects the QUEEN OF ROCK N ROLL"

    Created, Written and Directed by Randy Johnson

    Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences – trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends.

    “A Night with Janis Joplin rocks the house. This will rock your socks off!”

Abetta enters into the minds of others and releases their suffering through a process her family calls "bleeding." This rare ability comes with an age-old warning, but will she ignore it to save her bother Harlan as he slips into decline? Caught between tantalizing dreams and family obligations“An Impossible Combination” examines the unpredictable consequences of trying to mold the world into a happier place. In the words of Mark Twain, “Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.”
