"Getting REAL with Your Goals" 
We all feel overwhelmed at times because of the promises we make to ourselves. This presentation will shed some perspective on how getting REAL with your goals can become a way to find joy. You will learn how goal setting is actually a form of maintaining integrity and can help you identify what you want most. You will prioritize what brings you joy.

"Rock, Paper, Scissors" 
Given all that you have to do, how do you handle all the things coming at you? And how do you grow and evolve–excel–as a person? Boost your self-confidence in order to continue the balance of work and life through the rock, paper, scissors presentation.

"Blue Ribbon Customer Service" 
What does it take to provide great customer service? Who are your customers? Is your job the right fit for you? Are you a BRS or a BM? Learn what these acronyms mean and ponder other mind-blowing questions during this two-hour presentation on how to provide the BEST customer service.

“Turn Down For What?” 
Entertain your management team with this 75-minute presentation on managers’ role in engaging their employees and offering EAP services as a tool. A presentation about being ENGAGED in what you do, this is for managers/leaders who are required to offer EAP services as a part of their role. Leaders will come away knowing what to say when bringing up EAP services, as well as how to help leaders engage the front-line staff. This workshop will encourage managers to really get to know their company philosophy, to utilize the resources offered through REALiving’s EAP, and to verbalize to their employees what resources are available.

"Generational Leadership" 
For the first time, managers and business leaders are dealing with learning how to manage four generations in the workplace. Once employees understand the characteristics of generations, working together becomes easy. This inspiring one-hour workshop details the four generations and offers BEST practices for encouraging an efficient, peaceful work environment, where each generation can shine.

"Boost Yourself" 

It’s easy to give a high-five, pat on the back, or a “Way to go!” to others. But how often are you doing the same for yourself? For some, it’s not so easy to do. With “Boost Yourself,” we’ll go over the basics of self-care and self-management, as well as the importance of joy, so that you can continue cheering on others without taking from your own reserves.

"Verbal Judo" 
This presentation is inspired by the best-selling book "Verbal Judo, The Gentle Art of Persuasion," by George J. Thompson, Ph.D., and Jerry B. Jenkins, who teach us how to “motivate a disagreeable person to voluntary compliance” using our spoken words. Spend an hour learning this art, with a positive, engaging spin on getting what you want using words effectively. This workshop leaves you with concrete tools for enhancing any conversation, helping communicators get their BEST results.

"Being a BEST-ie - How to be Your BEST Colleague in the Workplace” 
Here’s the thing about going to work every day. You work with other PEOPLE every day. To be your BEST personally and professionally, you also have to be a BEST-ie―your very BEST as a colleague. That seems like common sense, right? But we all know getting along with your coworkers has everything to do with your BEST, and sometimes it’s anything but easy. This presentation will help you create a plan for being a BEST-ie, including consideration of communication strategies, intrapersonal skills, and conflict-resolution tips.

"BEST-ie 2.0"
(This presentation is a continuation of "Being a Best-ie") 
Are you still a full-fledged BEST-ie? Learn if you still are and also find out even more tips to being a BEST-ie.

"Your Personal Brand - Your Real BEST You” 
What’s in a brand? When you think of an iconic brand and associated imagery, what comes to mind? Very likely, a strong, recognizable image of the associated company and products. What is your brand? What do you as a person and employee bring to mind? Dependability? Loyalty? Charisma? In this presentation, we apply the power of marketing and branding to creating an iconic image for your own BEST brand. This creative, hands-on, and introspective session will leave you thinking differently about exactly what your BEST looks like.

"Budgeting to be Your BEST” 
In living your BEST life, managing household income is a task of critical importance, and it is also one that can be very stressful. This presentation will focus on the specifics of building and managing a household budget.

"Dancing With Stress” 
Even in your BEST life, there will be stress. Believe it or not, stress can be GOOD! It doesn't always feel good, but the key to being your BEST is the ability to dance with stress! This workshop identifies both good and bad stress, as well as the symptoms that tell you stress is getting the best of you! Learn to manage stress and dance with it.

"Your BEST Meeting Facilitation Skills” 
Do you spend any time during your work day in meetings? Have you ever thought, "Seriously, another meeting?" Ineffective and inefficient meetings are a nemesis for everyone, participants and facilitators alike. Upgrade your meeting facilitation skills and help your meeting be BEST-tacular!

“Change Champions: Leading People Through Change”
Change is commonly misperceived as something that happens “once in while.” In reality, change continually happens. As a leader (and a person), once you accept and challenge yourself to thrive amidst a forever changing landscape, you find yourself living and achieving your BEST. This training uses a well-known movie as the inspiration to help you understand the importance of changing.

"Time and Organizational Potluck” 
This “potluck” contains a feast of time and organizational tips to whet everyone’s appetite. At this session, no one will leave hungry, and everyone will walk away with at least one idea of something to do differently in order to be more successful at managing work, instead of having it manage YOU!

"Confidence To Achieve"
This session focuses on having the confidence to achieve success in life. Principles of self-concept are examined, as well as our belief systems and how they can improve or challenge a person's ability to achieve success. Using motivational video clips, this 60-minute session will encourage you to be your own champion. Join REALiving to gain the perspective on advocating for yourself.

"The Speed of Light"
This session focuses on the “speed” of work and the analogy of comparing a professional's self-care to that of a NASCAR driver. Working at the speed of light can make a person and an agency successful, but recognizing the view from where you sit, embracing adversity, and regular development and maintenance are crucial to success. This 45-minute workshop will help you explore the building of your racecar and will share important tips to keep it and your pit crew balanced along the way.

"How to be Positive in a Sometimes Not Very Positive World” 
Let's face it, our world and our world of work are sometimes not very positive places. When times are challenging, work can be a hot mess of not-so-positive things. Create a plan for navigating our "not-so-positive world" and end up in a place you can happily call your BEST.

"Bigger, Better, Richer"

We’ve all heard of fools’ gold, generally used to describe an illusion of riches that turns out to be worthless. When it comes to consuming and keeping up with the Joneses, the next great “thing” you acquire may not bring you any happiness at all. It’s all about perspective. “Bigger, Better, Richer” asks you to shift from being, doing, or having more to focusing on all dimensions of your wellness. Keeping your wellness wheel balanced will help you live a life of quality, not quantity.

"Your Energy Story"

Do you ever feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day? REALiving asks you to do one thing different—shift your focus instead to how you can increase your energy to manage the number of hours you have in a day! YOU are in charge of your energy! Empower yourself with some self-care, tune in to positivity, and soon you’ll be back on track to serenity.
