People Care Skills for Care-Based Businesses



Jim Czegledi helps care professionals in the funeral and retirement industries enhance their people skills to better manage their responses to people in various situations. In short, he teaches people how to be their best when the families they serve are at their worst.

Clients use their improved perspective and communication skills to elevate performance and employee engagement which increases productivity and results.

Improved customer satisfaction leads more referrals while increasing the reputation of your facility in the community.

For more than 30 years Jim has been speaking professionally. As an ordained minister and National Staff Executive, he helped develop church leaders across the country.

For his doctoral degree he studied the influence of the Baby Boom generation. This knowledge is the lens through which he understands the generational changes that are affecting, and will continue to disrupt the care industry over the coming decades.

Jim's enthusiasm and insight works with both small groups or large audiences. People say that his motivating, fun style is thought and laugh provoking, and that he combines wisdom with wit.

Phil Crawford, VP Morley Bedford Funeral Service | Morley Bedford Funeral Service

“I have known Dr. Jim for a better part of 30 years. Dr. Jim has dedicated his life serving others and I have professionally called upon him to assist in a families time of need officiating at funerals. Dr. Jim’s effective and sensitive message along with his ability to communicate with families are the strengths he has developed over the years.”

Paul Needham, Owner/Managing Director | Westview Funeral Chapel

“I first began working with Jim 25 years ago and have conducted many funerals with him. He understands the business side of a funeral but, most importantly, he understands what a family needs and how to get them there. Jim’s ability to combine sensitivity, industry knowledge and humour was both comforting and inspiring to those he served. From a Director’s perspective it was always good to know that when I recommended Jim to a family I was going to hear positive feedback after the funeral.”
