    August Event: How to Be Heard in a Noisy Business World

    Our workplaces are noisy operations competing for our limited time, attention, and energy.  When you have something important to say, finding your voice in that crowded business culture seems to require skill and experience that may feel out of reach.  In this talk, Kay Coughlin will deliver a simple technique that anyone can use anytime you need to be heard.  

    Creating a business environment that encourages open and honest communication among all participants is critical to moving projects and initiatives to success.   Leaders and team members know that the best solutions are the ones where everyone had an opportunity to contribute their ideas and experiences.   Don't waste another day by  letting urgent information and ideas go unspoken - learn "How to Be Heard in a Noisy Business World!"

    For this event, we welcome Kay Coughlin!

    Kay Coughlin is CEO and Chief Facilitator of Facilitator on Fire.  Kay has helped businesses of all sizes overcome roadblocks that get in the way of success, growth, and alignment.  Kay's specialty is working with multi-generational teams and their leaders.  The one thing that all of Kay's clients have in common is this: after working with her they all say, "I felt heard. You made it possible for us to really hear each other.  And, we know how we can take action now."

    Facilitator on Fire is highly focused on making sure their work with leaders, managers, and teams results in higher performance, greater happiness, a more supportive environment, and a "can-do" attitude.

    Kay honed her skills as a team facilitator and creator of action and alignment in the high-stakes worlds of non-profit management and major gift fundraising.  She was recognized on a national level for her innovative work in the field of donor relations, which is the non-profit equivalent of customer service.  When she founded Facilitator on Fire, she quickly realized all types of businesses and their teams deserve the chance to identify and overcome behaviors and patterns that keep them from moving forward.
