What Types of Organizations Can Benefit from the Living with Certainty Presentations?

There is a high need within organizations of all sizes and industries for help with creating positivity.  Reorganization, downsizing, leadership changes, reduced sales, added responsibility, and salary/incentive pay freezes and reductions have taken a toll on employee morale.  Add to this in many organizations, a younger workforce who views the world through a different lens, possibly bringing forth a different set of values.  Generally speaking, the world is increasingly full of challenges, disagreement, turmoil, and a lack of civility, with many individuals ready and willing to push the attitudes and rhetoric evermore toward the negative.  The efforts of Living with Certainty™ LLC are specifically targeted at counteracting this organizational slide. 

The following types of organizations can benefit from the Living with Certainty™ presentations and workshops:

  • Healthy public, private, or non-profit organizations looking to further energize their leadership team and employee base with an infusion of pure, positive, productive, and profound positivity
  • Organizations seeking to deepen their relationship with customers through the extension of overt positivity, purpose, and passion in each interaction
  • Organizations seeking to stem the tide of high employee turnover, and deepen the passion and commitment employees feel toward the organization, colleagues, and customers
  • Organizations that have undergone a change in senior leadership and are seeking to initiate a new, more positive, productive culture
  • Organizations that have undergone reorganization and downsizing and now need to re-establish more positive cultural footing
  • Organizations whose employees are burned out and in need of rejuvenation, motivation, inspiration, and launch of a new day after assuming combined roles/additional duties during downsizings and restructurings
  • Organizations that understand the business imperative of proactively shifting away from negative, fear-based, politically-charged cultures
  • Organizations with sales teams and customer-facing employees in need of rejuvenation and motivation, and who need to learn how to project greater, authentic positivity in customer interactions
  • Organizations who need their organizational story reframed through a lens of positivity to more productively and positively impact employees, customers, and communities
  • Non-Profit organizations that have experienced a challenging and frustrating couple years and could benefit from an inspirational reminder of the big picture and an infusion of the core values of service, compassion, generosity, altruism, and positivity, among others
