In spite of all the new technologies that connect us virtually, there’s a growing need to learn how to connect in a way that makes people feel valued and understood. This principle is at the core of Janet’s company and mission. Her clients learn practical skills that enable them to engage with their clients and colleagues in a way that feels natural and leaves everyone they interact with feeling that they matter.

Janet’s clients benefit in myriad ways, including the following:  

  • Interactions with others becomes less awkward, as well as more enjoyable and productive
  • The chance of  appearing on the "Short List" for a job or promotion increases
  • Businesses gain a competitive edge because of their cohesive teams and outstanding customer service
  • Clients of all ages discover how to leverage the power they have to choose the way they treat others and, thus, influence the way others treat them

Janet spices her interactive workshops with role play, intriguing historical trivia, thought-provoking problems to solve, and breath-catching tales of real–life rudeness.(Janet is also professional storyteller)  She digs beneath the mechanics of manners with discussions on the underlying reasoning addressing the question, “What’s in this for me?” Janet’s infectious enthusiasm and natural empathy persuade even reluctant participants to engage. This combination of ingredients creates workshops that sizzle!
