Oliver Leadership training courses employ a progressive, strategic system that I found was both practical and illuminating, with tools that are immediately effective as well as transferable to nearly every area of one's life. For those wanting to go a little more in depth, they get beneath the surface and offer deeper insights and large opportunities for improvement and development. I am very grateful for Brenda's highly enthusiastic and engaging manner as she effortlessly gets her point across to a wide range of very different personalities. Her memorable presentation style and versatile take-away tools make it a fairly simple task to implement the new skills after the course completion.
Sample Talks (1)
Research clearly shows that we should begin focusing on self-awareness as the foundational step in developing our personal effectiveness. Increasing our awareness helps us to be more in control of our behaviour and be able to see different ways to respond to daily challenges, rather tha reacting or overreacting in old ways. We can teach ourselves and others to bring more wisdom to our daily experience and in so doing, lead more balanced lives.
