Be it ever so humble…

 

Kansas City Spirit

My mom is one of the most independent seniors I know.

She’s swiftly approaching the big “80”, but if you met her, you’d never guess it. Within five minutes in her presence, you’d discern she is resolutely confident, vastly intelligent and noticeably active for a woman of her years. I often think of her as invincible.

Then “yesterday” happened. For the first time ever, she fainted. I shudder at the mere thought of it.

It startled her as well – more so, in fact. For someone accustomed to being in control, that moment of public vulnerability terrified her. Thankfully, today she is relatively ok and receiving excellent care at an area hospital.

This is not a blog post about my mom as much as it is about Kansas City.

For over twenty years, I have worked throughout Kansas City as a training facilitator in the nonprofit and business community. My career began with a non-profit called YouthNet.  Boy, I loved that job.

Our funding enabled us to partner with youth development organizations to provide Advancing Youth Development (AYD) training as well as a host of other modules. We provided training for youth worksers in organizations in Kansas City such as: Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Girl Scouts, Anytown, Whatsoever Community Center, Synergy Services and many more.

The AYD training teaches Kansas City youth workers the “science” associated with working with young people.  Our other modules (like True Colors and parent involvement trainings) helped organizations cultivate welcoming and effective culture within the organization.

YouthNet is gone and I’m now a consultant focusing on Kansas City team-building training.  As a consultant, I deliver team-building training and personal effectiveness modules to change negative thinking (which soon impact performance), inept practices and strengthen teams in positive, lasting ways.

Hey, culture is where it’s at! I know that’s not grammatically correct, but it’s true! I know how to begin to change your workplace culture and I will work with you to help.

 

If you can change your culture you will impact performance. I’m talking about both team and personal performance.
