“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin


When I learn I teach; when I teach I learn. The goal of my workshops are simple: to help participants connect with their inner power to cope with life’s challenges, avoid pitfalls, and live more fulfilled lives, one small change at a time.


Here are a few reasons I prefer workshops, they:
• offer an intensive learning experience in a short amount of time
• engage the participant in learning through discussion and active participation of hands-on skills
• provide the opportunity to practice the techniques or skills that are being taught
• are informal and less intimidating than the teacher-student approach to learning
• renew motivation and increase confidence
• establish new friendships
• offer the opportunity to improve communication among colleagues and co-workers and
• create a sense of community or common purpose among participants
• introduce new concepts and new ways of thinking
• are cost-effective; the participant doesn’t have to spend thousands of dollars to try new skills.
• offer feedback to the participant and the facilitator. Feedback is critical to improving outcomes.
• make learning fun!


All workshops use the following small change principles:
• Life is big and the road to change begins with small steps.
• Small steps can yield huge benefits.
• Old habits are hard to break; tackle them one at a time, one day at a time.
• small change is really about the time you spend focusing on yourself.
• small change activities put you on the road to recognizing and igniting your inner power
• small change workshops cost a fraction of what you would spend on a college course or counseling sessions.
