Push Me - Pull You: Are We Really Communicating? 

We’ve all been there!  We have told others what we need by laying out all the details and making it very clear. So, why aren’t we getting what we want?  Why won’t people just do what we want them to do?

Whether it’s our colleagues, our employees, even our own family…sometimes we feel like we’re just not being heard!

Debra Griffin, owner of Touchstone Training, has been designing, developing and facilitating workforce development programs since 1983. Specializing in workforce performance management and coaching processes, Debra has worked with thousands of adult learners in corporate, government, military and educational organizations around the country. Debra’s practice focuses on the core issues and processes that drive overall organizational effectiveness, including workforce performance management and coaching, change management issues, team collaboration, and front-line leadership development. Touchstone Training is a federally certified Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned small business, and a member of the Cocoa Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. 

Please join us on Tuesday, June 27 as Debra sheds a different light on how we communicate with others, because sometimes it’s not about them!

Thank you for all the good times at our meetings, and thank you for the laughter we so many times shared! Thank you for your friendship and support. The special bond of sisterhood is strong in our league, and I thank you for being...Read more
