Businesses, non-profits, organizations, – do you find the daily operation of your facility or business overwhelming?  Do you need external support to help your team including tools to improve sales, customer experience and reduce conflict? Is Improved Communication, Conflict Resolution and Mental Health & Wellness part of your company policy and philosophy?

If you are so busy running the day to day operations and hoping that the team will manage themselves this will not work.  Denying and ignoring will not make your problems go away, and in fact can make things worse. If effective communication and proper training is lacking, conflict can arise and this will have a negative effect on the team.  This can result in lack of engagement, toxic behaviour, increased stress and decreased productivity. At the root of most workplace problems is poor communication which then leads to problems in these areas.  Businesses must be able to deal properly with these negative behaviours and have proper training and support in place to manage conflict, improve communication and increase employee engagement.  As well, attention should be given to support the mental health and wellness of everyone within the organization. When ignored, these issues have an effect on employee morale, retention and lower performance.

LET ME HELP YOU! I am a Certified Business Coach as well as a Certified Workplace Health & Performance Ambassador. In addition, I have been an award-winning  sales representative with many years of excellent communication and conflict resolution skills.

I can work with your business as a whole, or with individual employees on all of these issues with a focus on communication, improved productivity and sales as well as Workplace Wellness. I have consulted with many types of businesses in a wide range of products and services across the prairies, in areas such as selling new products, complex medical equipment, and sales and communication training. I have advised business owners on many topics including  human resource questions, communication, and conflict resolution, and have witnessed in person some of  their struggles.  I observed inadequately trained employees; poor communication skills; high staff turnover; toxic behaviour; and burnout, with some leaving their jobs altogether. This has increased over the course of the Covid 19 pandemic. As well, Mental Health issues are on the rise and need to be addressed in the workplace.

During my 25+ year career, I have attained certificates in many topics, among them:

  • Mental Health First Aid
  • Certified Workplace Health & Performance Ambassador
  • Team Building and Conflict Resolution;
  • Effective Communication
  • Dealing with Toxic Behaviour in the Workplace
  • Stress Management
  • Leadership Coaching and Skills
  • Certificate in Indigenous Studies
  • I am confident if given the opportunity, and with effort from you and your team, I can help improve overall workplace communication, well being, and culture, which should result in increased productivity and staff retention.

“Theresa’s presentation ‘Let’s Get Civility and Respect Back into the Workplace’ was such a great learning experience. The presentation was very interactive through asking the group questions and asking us to share our experiences. She provided us all with many problem-solving tools and provided examples to ensure we all understood. She brought up many great points about communication skills and reminded us of simple skills to work on where communication fall-outs frequently occur. I feel a lot more prepared to handle difficult communication situations and came out of the talk with a lot more tools to use as a team leader in my veterinary clinic.”

2022 SAVT Conference Representative Jessie L

Theresa is prepared to take on those tough discussions and address those difficult situations that can occur in a workplace. She understands the importance of addressing the mental health and wellbeing of all employers and employees and has solid solutions to offer. By improving workplace mental health awareness, effective communication for dealing with difficult people, and stress management, your workplace can be a much greater success.
