2 Keynotes:

1. Drop Your Bucket Right Where You Are

Categories: inspirational, workplace, self-development, self-imposed limitation 

A Portuguese sailing ship in the late 1800 got stuck on the salty Atlantic Ocean on its way to the West Indies. Death was their constant thought as their fresh water supply dwindled. However, they were told to drop their bucket right where they were and amazingly, pulled up fresh drinkable water in the middle of the salty Atlantic. 

In this talk, Gloria will share 5 lessons culled from this 19th century tale that are still applicable today and illustrated with 20th century examples.

2. No Way Out For Adwa

Categories: Women, inspirational, West Indian and ethnic communities

Description: Adwa was a 19 year woman of Indian descent in the 1930’s who was married to an abusive man. After every beating, she would escape to her parents who would send her back to her husband. She could not choose how she lived but she chose how she died and by doing so, chose her children’s fate also.  

Unfortunately, this synopsis of Adwa’s life could be any woman’s from any part of the world in the 1930’s, earlier and even now. Adwa was Gloria’s aunt. More recently, one of her cousins died for the same reason. These personal experiences and discussions with women propelled Gloria to find out what factors are still causing women to be victimized almost 90 years after her aunt and children died. She could not help her aunt or cousin but in keeping the silent promise she made to them, she is empowering women who are still living with the scars to regain control of their lives.

I am so grateful for having you as the trainer of Communication and Integration series training for M-Bridge. Your training is well-structured for the 4 sessions. The round-table setting instead of classroom setting provides participants a friendly and easy-interactive space to engage and to learn, which brings extraordinary value to our participants. Those topics hit right point of what is missing for professional immigrant’s integration in Canada.
Thank you Gloria for your love and generosity. I look forward to more collaboration with you in future.
— Sophie Duan, Chair & Executive Director

COACHING

 

Coaching

We offer a variety of individual and group programs that will deepen your understanding of the process of communication, and reveal habits that are preventing you from understanding and being understood. The sessions address listening, situational thinking, developing a questioning mentality, asking thoughtful questions and more. 

The skills learned will empower you to speak confidently in any environment, boldly participate in discussions, start conversations with ease and embrace situations that call for interaction with others instead of avoiding them. As well, you'll become linguistically conscious and vocally aware of how you are perceived and if you are getting the results you want.

Enhanced communication and self-knowledge lead to increased confidence and results in better performance and productivity. 

Coaching is offered for entrepreneurs, employees, presenters, speakers, job seekers, supervisors and managers. 


We also offer specialized coaching for those who are under-performing, lacking soft skills necessary for promotion or new position or have special learning needs.

 
The active listening segment was quite an eye opener. In my workday world, I face communication challenges all the time, I should say miscommunication challenges because of not clearly understanding what others are asking me or not making myself clearly understood by others. It has been my experience that we do not listen very well and the consequences of this are usually lost time and effort. In our competitive fast paced work environment, we do not have the luxury of wasting either time or effort.
