Value of Susan’s Workshop Style

1. Comfortable Atmosphere: Susan’s presentation style and focus come from her heart. Her desire to help people and her ability to create trust through this genuine communication style, combine to create a uninhibited atmosphere for people to participate and “let their hair down” as one attendee noted.

2. Customized Workshop: Susan adjusts her workshops to what she is able to help attendees get in touch with during the presentation. She encourages input and participation–most important she follows up the ideas that come forth during interaction.

3. Instant Intelligence: by allowing each workshop to follow the attendees challenges, Susan is required to think quickly, think deeply, and provide answers on the spot. Her strength is this ability to adapt without skipping a beat.

Crowd Reaction

During the workshop, Susan was able to entice a number of people to tell their “story”, “fear”, or “challenge” to the group. This open forum style had the attendees sharing, helping, and providing feedback valuable to the entire group.

The most interesting responses:

“I have more control than I thought”
“I didn’t know how to plan for a change until now”
“I guess I get in my own way without realizing it”
“When can I attend another one of your workshops?”


Third Characteristic That Shapes Our Reality: Maintaining Your Effort

Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.” Vince Lombardi

Whoever said anybody has a right to give up? Marian Wright Edelman

You began by building your confidence through the accumulation of experience and research. You maintained a constant commitment by action planning and steadfast perseverance. Now is the time to add the fuel to your engine of change: effort.

What is effort? Effort, according to Websters, “is the total work done to achieve a particular end.” Effort is also a “conscious exertion of power. . . or a serious attempt.” Effort makes all the difference in the world.

Your effort, either 110% or less than ideal, is your personal measurement to how well your are performing your tasks in order to change. You can NOT lie to yourself-when you do not give your best effort you know it.

Three Steps To Maintain Your Effort

1. 100% Effort: Always give your maximum effort, your best efforts to your work

2. Quality is Job 1: Do NOT cut corners, speed through without care, or attempt to short change the process. Sloppy work is less than your best effort

3. Recognize Your Value: Recognize that others can benefit by what you have to offer
