"Kristi brings a positive, contagious energy to any room she enters. Her event on effective public speaking really connected, with her purposeful message and relevant examples. The presentation was interactive and engaging; every person left with a tangible takeaway. She made a point to understand her audience, and she challenged each of us to improve our public speaking. We could easily look to Kristi to provide a regular professional development series for our group!"

Employee Development Programs

Employee Engagement

According to Gallup research, approximately 34% of employees are actively engaged in their work. About two-thirds of your employees are dissatisfied and disengaged.

A fully-engaged workforce is vital to your success. This means having employees who understand their role, are willing to take ownership of shared strategic goals, and go the extra mile to accomplish them in their daily work.

We address:

  • Leader awareness & responsibility
  • Motivators, both intrinsic and extrinsic
  • Employee satisfaction - Hint: money isn't the answer
  • Performance management
  • Challenging work
  • And more

We'll give you specific steps you can take to start engaging, and retaining, your valuable talent.

This program will be customized for leaders and managers, or for the employees themselves, based on the culture and needs of your company.

Communication & Relationships

KLR will enhance your team's communication skills with proven practices that help employees build more effective relationships.

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Reduce conflict in the organization
