Preparing and/or redesigning your relationship for success. Beat the odds and prevent re-divorce.

Few challenges in life are more difficult than bringing the pieces of broken families together. Past hurts, high hopes, pre-existing relationships, and different backgrounds can make this task incredibly tough.

This is a marriage where one or both bring one or more children of any age; whether or not they live with the married couple.

Knowing what to expect and what is “normal” for a stepfamily can reduce the pressure of unrealistic expectations. Understanding the territory and the skills required to negotiate the journey can facilitate the new family's development and promote lasting success.

Areas covered:

This workshop is for those with children in the following situations:

Communication Collisions
Employees will discover their own unique personality and individual style in a fun, informative, interactive, energizing and entertaining process. Using the TRUE COLORS format, employees will learn to value and appreciate who they are and how they operate. It doesn't stop there. They will discover, experience, and appreciate those with different personality styles.

By valuing the differences, the workplace can be transformed into a more effective and satisfying place creating individual and corporate success.This workshop is based on the sound and extensive research behind the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and “Please Understand Me” by Kiersey and Bates.
