Rita, I can't quite get over you.
You are single handedly taking what has historically been one of the most
boring organizations I have ever belonged to and turning it into a
powerhouse. Shows the power of a strong enthusiastic leader.
is a moving dose of change! As president of the National Speaker's Assocation Alabama Chapter, she has truly turned around
a chapter which was not progressing. If you want a major shot of energy, new ideas and determination to build success, hire

Teaching lessons we must learn

As the world gives us its best
To stand apart from all the rest
the power of the dream that brings us here.
Dis-engaged employees FILL our workplaces. Employees are so hungry for positive feed back
in today's stress-filled workplace that many would prefer input from their leader over more money. Of course,
money is always welcome, but, very often, it is not enough. We all have the powerful need to feel that we matter and
that we make a noticeable difference. Too little feedback is one of the top causes of turnover. American
Express conducted a survey with the results being that 46% said the number one desire was personal feedback and the
number two desire was financial rewards. In a world of faces and numbers, we NEED to feel that we truly matter.
Leadership has been a subject of great controversy for over a century.Some
have spent their lives in search of the most productive method to lead the masses.We have run the
gambit of the very tightest controls, such as timing bathroom breaks, to no control at all.Because
leadership will affect another person’s life forever, either negatively or positively, it should never be taken
Motivational workshops/seminars on
Engagement! (in life as well as business) which include Leadership, Organizational Behavior and Social Media are available
in two hour, half-day and full-day formats. These seminars are suitable for any organization, from the small business
to the large corporations and for the individual with personal pursuits.
“Rita just spent a couple of hours teaching me,
a social media novice, "how to navigate this new terrain." Normally, this type of endeavor leaves me feeling overwhelmed and
highly stressed. Working under Rita's tutalage, I felt enlightend and ready to get to work. Rita has a tremendously giving
heart and is making a significant difference in the lives of those she works with!
Donna Cates, Women's Financial Expert” October 24, 2009
had the unique
opportunity to work with Rita many times over the last 20 years. I have seen
her speak, train, sing and coach. She is absolutely at the top of her game. I
would highly recommend her to any corporation who is looking to take their team building
experience to the next level.”August 24, 2009, Terry Young,
Founding Partner, Southern Risk Services Group
It's Christmas. This group has been together for only
4 months. Some of them have been together longer but this group, as a whole, has been working together, weekly, for
4 months. Look at their faces, their attitudes, their spirit, their joy and their engagement. The principles of
Leadership, and worker satisfaction, are basically the same across organizations. If this group of people worked for
your organization with the engagement they have in this video, what would your customer service be like? This kind of
freedom, enjoyment and engagement is a direct result of the leader. This is one of Rita's past choirs. Watch as the
camera scrolls their faces. You can see and feel their engagement in the satisfaction of what they are doing. Do
your employees feel the same satisfaction?
