This hilarious, interactive workshop identifies which “lens” you use to look at our world. More importantly, you’ll learn how others see the exact same world. No matter what role you fill (leader, follower, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, parent, or child) you’ll walk away with a whole new perspective on just about everyone around you.

Setting up a solid foundation and some reliable habits will take you from “we can’t” to “we can” and before you know it, you’ll be saying WE DID!

Happiness Advantage

Everyone believed that the Sun revolved around the Earth, and then in 1543 Copernicus blew everyone’s mind! Just like that, most people believe that only after they’re successful will they finally be happy. Based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, that formula for happiness is dead wrong. In fact, it’s COMPLETELY backwards. It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, healthier, resilient, and productive. It can be as easy as 20 seconds, but you’ll have to register to find out how.

How to Avoid Falling in Love with a Jerk

Everyone has a best friend. Well, how did they get to be your best friend? You took the time to get to know each other. You found out that you shared common interests and points of view. You built trust and reliability over time. You remained loyal to each other when the going got tough. You probably provided alibis to throw off the cops!

What if you took the time to build the same relationship with the person that KNOCKS YOUR SOCKS OFF?!? It’s impossible to really know someone without investing the time in it, and marrying someone you hardly know is like joining the Marine Corps on an OPEN CONTRACT – who knows where you’ll end up! This workshop allows participants to eliminate the JERK(ETTE) before they have the keys to your heart… and base housing.

PREP

Calling all couples! YES ALL COUPLES. Married, dating, committed, just met, carpooling – you’re totally the right fit. No matter how long you’ve been together or your marital status you’re are guaranteed to walk away from this workshop as Relationship Ninjas, capable of fighting off the rough patches when they sneak up on you. Couples spend most of their time in one-on-one discussions putting the skills they’re learning to practice right away.

Ready, Set, Prepare!

This workshop contains information regarding actions that service members and families should take to be informed and prepared in the event of natural and man-made hazards. This workshop is designed for families to prepare themselves for all types of emergencies, to increase their personal sense of security and peace of mind.

Real Relationships

Lasting relationships take work. Add the military lifestyle to that and now you’re up against another set of challenges altogether. No matter where you’re at in your current relationship, there’s no better time to make it stronger than ever. We’re talking silverback gorilla strong! While it’s always great to attend couples classes together, sometimes that just can’t happen (so individuals are always welcome, too). Whether the honeymoon hasn’t happened yet, is still ongoing, or was over years ago, the information and activities offer positive and proactive ways to build a healthy, lasting relationship.

"Say What?!?" Interpersonal Communication

Have you ever had a conversation go downhill fast when you heard the words, “What’s that supposed to mean?” Gender, age, experiences, and style can all impact how we communicate with the people around us. Sometimes it isn’t even what you say; it’s how you say it. There are some fundamental mistakes that most of us make without even realizing it, but there’s hope. “Say What?!?” is your chance to take the first step toward improving every personal and professional relationship you have.

Speed of Trust Foundations

The vital currency in today’s connected, collaborative world is trust. Like any other discipline, creating trust is a learnable skill, and with the tenets laid out by Stephen M.R.

Leading Across Generations

For the first time in history, there are four distinct generations in the workforce: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials…all with their own perspectives, styles, and expectations.

  • Motivate team members to volunteer their greatest contribution by engaging the whole person and giving space for generational differences to exist.
