This lively session unveils the five secrets to understanding others that most people aren�t aware of in their relationships. Based on Beverly�s internationally bestselling book, the session will share five actionable ways to learn more about yourself and your communication approach, and will teach you how to shift your communication to be more effective with others.
Managers often avoid giving it and employees often resist receiving it. Managers are poor at giving useful feedback and there is good reason. Employees often avoid it to prevent being criticized and to protect their reputations. Employees often prefer to stay in denial than to hear the truth and to change. It is often safer to pretend you are a good performer than to admit you need help. This “feedback disability” most often reveals itself in the annual performance appraisal which remains the most popular management tool. Employees need frequent and regular feedback to be fully engaged and this might explain why the percentage of engaged employees remains stagnant in the high 20’s (Gallup 2012). Engaged employees are twice as productive as disengaged employees (The Temkin Group 2013). Furthermore, this "feedback disability" creates dysfunction that contributes to the organization's inability to effectively and efficiently achieving its strategic objectives and serve customers.

I'm an experienced Leadership Consultant and Trainer, Speaker, Executive and Life Coach and author with 30+ years experience in developing leadership potential and empowerment, supporting people at individual or organizational level to develop confidence, leadership and people skills; empowering them to see themselves as the solution. I've also founded Recovering Workaholics. A serious ski accident in 1983, forced me to use a wheelchair. As the Head Teacher (Principle)of a large school I was unable to access most classrooms. I had to look at the bigger picture and develop innovative ways to motivate and engage staff so that they were self reliant, understood how to deliver excellence and take responsibility for their own performance. The approach was successful in maximizing both personal development and leadership potential. It's also why in the 20 years of leading the school, it was acknowledged as one of Ofsted's "Best Schools" twice and included on the HMI honours list as one of England's most successful schools and had a string of quality and kite marks. The approaches have proved just as successful in a wide range of business settings. Books include "Kick Start Your Career", "Manage Your Staff More Effectively" and "Chariots On Fire". www.ginagardinerassociates.co.uk www.recoveringworkaholics.com

Sometimes we are racing with the wind, and other times we are lighting a candle for a loved one. Sometimes we have to learn a new way to live. It's a celebration because we are here, breathing life with a cup half-full. We learn from the celebrations and in turn, bring joy to others while keeping watch for the wonderful.
