Our Approach

Our service include 

Conflict Resolutions. We interview everyone, involved or not directly involved. Even a small conflict not address will affect the performance of some and create a departmental problem. 

Affective Communication Training is a particular method of personal interaction between participants within the workshop. This approach removes any doubt as to the likes or dislikes of each style. With this information every member of the team now has a greater responsibility for making things work. 

 Hiring & Termination

Keynotes for Conventions, Service Clubs and Corporate Conferences should be fun, informative and educational. How about an interview to see if we are a good fit.

In our long time and ongoing relationship with people we have been involved in saving jobs, marriages and on occasion just someones peace of mind. An Interpersonal Relationship Problem can make you want to do bodily harm to yourself or that fool who won't listen, thinks they're always right. You're trying to deal with this nut BUT each attempt increases the tension.  Why us, we look at every angle, aren't bisis, don't take sides and will provide an approach that will help you "help them"  want to "help you," If you have a nagic wane you can wish the problem away. If not "we can help." 

 Some Interpersonal Relationships may have no cure, they can't be fixed. It can be called divorce,  "you're fired" or I quit.

Jean Ford Knight
Travels nationally as a Proven  Problem Solver and keynote speaker with a focus on Affective  Communication as it relates to all Interpersonal Relationships. In addition to private consultations, she teaches customized workshop where interactive participation between attendees find workable solutions to stressful situations that occur daily.

The training opens a great many doors into the strange and mysterious ways of those unlike ourselves. We have all run into the oddities of people and experienced the good and the bad. When differences occur between people it may come as a  surprise, and trying to fix the problem may make things worse.

Most people have a  "basket" of unorganized information concerning the people they interact with. The workshop supplies the tools needed to help organize that information using a method perfected over the past 30 years. 

You will leave the workshop with a greater degree of understanding of yourself and others. It will allow you to achieve a greater degree of control in your life and your work with less stress and aggravation.

1) No made-up roll playing. Attendees bring real life situations to deal with.

2) No Motivational Hype-this is a learning experience. Hype not needed.

In Jeans words "This workshop and all other work by me is Interpersonal. I am not qualified to deal in the world of Psychology. Find a good therapist.
