Closing the Deal: 7 Communication Secrets Every Salesperson Must Know
Despite today’s fast-paced and increasingly competitive environment, some things never change. Study after study shows that the key to increasing sales and maximizing profits requires establishing and building relationships with clients. And this holds true no matter what business you’re in.

The New Normal: Managing and Motivating Generation Y
The shift of today’s younger employment force from Generation X to Generation Y (aka “Millenials”) presents challenges for managers. The old hierarchy doesn’t cut it anymore. Millenials have philosophies and expectations that go against the grain of an older work force, and managing, motivating and retaining this new generation of talent requires thinking “outside the job.” Coach Todd shares how to do just that.

He Says, She Says...We Can WORK It Out!
According to a recent survey that asked 2,300 male and female executives to rank the biggest obstacles they faced at work, “communication with the opposite sex” topped the majority of both men’s and women’s lists. Sound familiar? Men may be from Mars and women from Venus, but your company must thrive and profit on Planet Earth.

The Power of Words: How to Talk to Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime
It’s a no-brainer that words matter big time when you’re trying to get your point across.

Coach Todd shares the tricks of this trade so college students will be able to talk their way to success in any situation.

Real World 101: A Crash Course in Landing Your Dream Job
So, you’re about to graduate and your resume rocks, but when it comes to acing an interview, you’re clueless.

Cracking the Gender Code
Are men really from Mars and women from Venus? Absolutely! Gender differences affect almost every aspect of our lives—from the boardroom to the bedroom. They explain why so much can get “lost in translation” when you and your significant other communicate, as well as why either or both of you can often feel misunderstood—and disconnected. In this seminar, Coach Todd will:

  • Share the (often) hidden messages behind what “he says” and “she says”
  • Crack the gender code so that you can finally understand what makes each other tick…and what turns each other on
  • Show you how embracing your differences can propel you to new levels of understanding and intimacy

It would be foolish to think that a vibrant love life is the only ingredient to a successful relationship, but it is potentially the most important one. This seminar offers a smorgasbord of tips on how to spice up your love life, including: how mixing up the menu can reawaken your taste buds, why “appetizers” should always be on the menu, how music can work wonders (tune it in, turn it up, and let it turn you on) and why you should always save room for “dessert”

Love & Romance: The 'AHA' Factor
Rediscover the joy and fun of being in a committed relationship. In this seminar, Coach Todd will have you saying, “Wow, I never realized that!” over and over again by sharing “aha” moments that include how: kissing with your eyes open can pump up the passion in your relationship, jealousy can bring you closer together (for real!), a simple text message or email exchange can lead to a passionate evening, revealing your vulnerable side can take your relationship to a whole new level, replacing “I love you, babe” with a more creative phrase can rev up your romance tenfold, and how/why men need only 2-3 seconds, but women typically require 20 minutes to get “in the mood.”

Coach Todd was a guest speaker at our corporate leadership retreat. Everyone was dreading this annual event because profits were way down, morale was at an all time low, and we’d been having a lot of infighting among our management staff. But Coach Todd shared some fascinating team building exercises with us, and months later, we continue to reap the rewards of his efforts.
