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.

Become A Better Listener
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.
