Group Seminars


No matter what your organization, everyone can benefit financially from understanding the "why" in order to change the "how" of their spending.    

Topics covered in this self-reflective yet practical seminar include: 

  • Developing a growth mindset as the foundation for change
  • Acknowledging and confronting the "unconscious holdover" from past thinking and its effects on one's current reality
  • Reflecting on personal voids in one's life and how one tries to fill them (i.e., through the purchasing of "things")
  • Understanding all good things are found in the long haul; thus the need to be disciplined and have grit  
  • Practicing gratitude in order to realize "enough is a feast" 

Once the above are understood and serving as the foundation, applying practical financial strategies becomes more powerful with longer lasting effects.  Strategies like: 

  • Cutting expenses and living within one's means by developing and sticking to a budget
  • Creating concrete plans to get out and stay out of debt
  • Saving and investing in one's future

Restorative Practices Presentations and All-Day Trainings

In all aspects of people’s lives, relationships matter.  As such, developing, maintaining, and repairing relationships is paramount in the healthy, productive, and efficient running of any business or organization.  

This is the power of Restorative Practices: Proactively building relationships and developing community, and managing conflict and tension by repairing harm and restoring relationships.

The following Restorative Practices presentation can be tailored to fit the needs of your organization, and can range from a 45-minute presentation to a full-day training. This powerful presentation covers the following topics:

  • Experiencing the power of circles in order to build and maintain relationships and community 
  • Understanding shame and its effects on relationships
  • Applying affective listening, statements, and questions in order to build understanding and repair harm 
  • Understanding the importance of Fair Process in the decision-making process
  • Applying Restorative Practices’ fundamental hypothesis to all relationships: 
    • Human beings are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes in their behavior when those in positions of authority do things WITH them, rather than TO them or FOR them.
