In this presentation, the audience will learn how to move through the loss, re-connect with their purpose and understand how to maintain a healthy workplace, despite the daily pressures.Book This Topic
A client dealing with loss is highly volatile. Representatives need to manage their emotional triggers as well as their own, which over time drains them. If not addressed effectively, customer satisfaction decreases, sales are lost and brand reputation is compromised.
In this talk, the audience will learn how to identify and work through grief; how to emotionally prepare before dealing with grieving clients and their loved ones; and how to communicate with them without getting overwhelmed.Book This Topic

In this talk, the audience will learn the art of pacing, deep self-care and how to connect back to their purpose so they can deliver exceptional care to their clients again.Book This Topic
