Join me on 4/3 @ 1:30pmEST for our next webinar on #conflict.

Conflict among the team is tough. Conflict, between you and that one employee who just thinks vastly differently than you, can be beyond frustrating. More than dealing with a difficult person, this learning event walks you through the conflict resolution techniques and puts the value back in brainstorming. Learn how to still make their opinion count and leave them feeling like they can contribute to your efforts through acceptance, curiosity, communication, and tolerance of those who seem to challenge your every move. http://contagiouscompanies.com/training/LeadershipWebinars

Certain personality traits make great sales skills and thus sales people, but those same skills can make an awful sales manager. But, this type of promotion happens all the type in Corporate America and it usually results in the newly promoted Sales Leader being frustrated, producing poor sales results, and quitting, but not before they tick off an entire sales team. Why? To prevent this from happening in your office…read more…http://blog.contagiouscompanies.com/

The most common way of dealing with difficulty is to ignore it. At least, this is what audience members have told me repeatedly over the last few years of teaching Make Difficult People Disappear™. Now in truth, some do confront them and some turn into bullies when trying to deal with them, but the bottom line is the most effective leaders who have the best results, don’t ignore problem employees…even if they’re not on their own team! There are reasons for this and five of them are read more…

Not sure what an Entertainer IS or why you should read the eBook? Entertainer is a descriptive label for those personality traits that are enthusiastic, charismatic, engaging, and when under stress perhaps a bit overly dramatic.  The Entertainers, as are all personalities, still able to lead, they just do it differently. http://blog.contagiouscompanies.com

Tagline
"...helping you develop leadership and confidence skills that stick!"
Introduction

Monica Wofford, CSP founded her training career and company on the premise that a leader does not have to be born, but can be developed. Since that time she has expanded leadership to include working with employees, customers and even the voices in your head. Monica has led talented employees and teams for more than 20 years and now serves as CEO of Contagious Companies, Incorporated.

 

 

 

The author of Contagious Leadership, as well as numerous other books and learning tools, Monica has been called “The best trainer ever seen!” Monica’ strategies, techniques, and powerful insights into effective leadership, masterfully transform managers and employees into people who lead better, stay longer, complain less, and produce more.

“Monica’s enthusiasm and sense of humor are contagious. She really makes you feel like you have ability and new knowledge to make changes.”

            J. Thompson

Though she began her speaking career part time in 1989 with her first key note to 8600 fellow students, Monica has had a role in or coaching or leadership since 1990. She was recently nominated as a Woman of Distinction by the Girl Scouts Citrus Council and even Vice President Dick Cheney has complimented Monica on Contagious Leadership. With an MBA, numerous training certifications, and CORE® Coach certification, Monica’s greatest joy comes from helping others catch their own sense of Contagious Confidence™. She performs this both as a speaker and as founder of the popular women’s conference series: The Contagious Confidence™ Conferences for Women.  

 

Outside of the office, Monica has served as an adjunct instructor with The University of Phoenix, President of the board of Freedom Ride, President of the Central Florida NSA Chapter, an amateur polo player, and a dynamic coach for those who struggle with their job, their lives, or the voices in their head.

As a long time client of State Farm, Michael Mowdy has been my agent of choice for nearly 10 years! He and his team are incredibly helpful, attentive to detail, and friendly. The questions I have (even the ones that I think are stupid!) are always answered promptly, thoroughly, and effectively. Michael and his team get the job done well and right and always go above and beyond to take care of their customers! It is a joy to call him my insurance agent and to have him looking over my health, life, auto, and home policies!
