Workshops for Agencies & Residents
Whether you are looking to access the motivation and strategies you need on your pathway to prosperity, or an agency wanting to better serve your residents, our interactive and informative workshops have you covered!
Fostering the Climate of Independence
Self Sufficiency is more than the title to a program. It is a MINDSET, a way of life and thinking–and it starts from the top.
In this workshop, you and your entire team (from the CEO to the Receptionist) will gain tremendous insight into the role each of you play in fostering the climate of independence within your agency.
In human service we go into our roles believing our residents are limited and need hand holding like small children-this is far from the case for most of the families you serve. The truth is, our residents are doing some awesome things and are capable of more than we give them credit. Your agency should be challenging residents to become better and not stay sought in their circumstance.
Learn the stark difference between the day-to-day operations and outcomes of agencies who foster dependency versus independence. Walk away with feasible strategies that can be incorporated instantly to improve your culture of independence and shift your residents into wealth and prosperity.
Finding the Balance: Where Does Help Begin & End With Your Clients
As an initiative of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), public housing residents are encouraged to partner with housing authorities to help improve resident satisfaction, self-help initiatives and quality of life. Residents are encouraged to help ensure safer, cleaner, more productive communities. However, it is challenging to engage residents and empower them to take ownership of their communities.
There are several obstacles which prevent residents from creating and becoming the change they desire to see. Current budget constraints limit the resources housing authorities have to develop, train and support residents in their attempt to lead and take their destinies into their own hands. Resident must have an adequate mix of appropriate training and education that gives them the tools to create and execute clear action plans for their families.
This high-energy interactive workshop will present a keen understanding of the give and take between both the agency and the residents they serve.
Master Your Self-Sufficiency Program
The United States spends almost a trillion dollars fighting poverty every year and still is failing! Why is this?
While many of us have the right tools, our approach to the problems is all wrong. This failed approach has us using the wrong tools in the wrong manner.
Instantly access the missing pieces to your Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) program with this interactive and intense coaching workshop that promises to close the gaps that stand in the way of both participants and programs achieving their desired outcomes.
Staff will walk away with a different mindset and understanding of FSS and the real barriers our families face. Walk away with a new set of tools to combat the variety of circumstances our residents face. Staff will be able to help families reduce their fear of losing subsidies, create a solid action plan and leverage and maximize the benefits they receive to support their household.
Motivating The Intake Process (Motivational Interviewing 101)
Let me guess, your calendar is booked today with a list of residents that need to either conduct their initial intake, or recertification. You have your folders with the endless documents you need signed.
If you haven’t noticed, families are programmed out and are walking into your office on auto pilot. Neither of you are expecting anything spectacular to take place during this time of engagement. They leave with plans to try to make their best life happen on their own and you call the next resident.
Sound familiar? Well., it doesn't have to be this way!
The intake interview is the first real moment you have to light the flame! And, recertifications are set to fan the flames.
What flame? The desires of the hearts you are being paid to steward! Doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. It's time for a different approach.
This workshop checks in first with the interviewer! Do you need a jump start and someone to reignite your flame? What are you bringing to the table and how do we utilize the best of who you are during the interviewing process? Gain the insight you need to become more effective in your role. Know what questions to ask to help residents solve their own ambiguity. Learn to uncover those Ah-Ha moments for your residents.
Developing the Brillionaires Mindset
What is the Brillionaires Mindset? It’s an unshakeable, unstoppable, enduring belief and understanding that despite of what it looks like you are not your circumstances.
This session adds a different lens and perspective to your current challenges. Let me help you adjust your view. Access guidance that always keeps the light at the end of the tunnel front and center.
Taken from my book Get Your Hands Off My Butt: The Hands On-Guide to Avoiding the Welfare System, this highly interactive workshop will give your residents the fuel to stay the course.
Access the motivation you need to get started and achieve all that God has for you in this season!
Love NO MATTER WHAT! (Heartwork)
How’s Your Heart Doing Today? Let’s agree that the struggle is real! And where there is struggle, there is pain. However, if this pain is not checked and removed, it will impede progress and obstruct your pathways to prosperity.
What if I told you that the heart only knows one thing–LOVE! Hate, and anger (secondary emotions) only comes after your Love has been betrayed and or violated.
During this workshop you’ll learn how to check in with your heart and get her back on track to what’s most important. When we don’t understand the purpose of a thing – abuse is inevitable! We are to guard our hearts with all diligence for it affects everything. It’s time to clean up the most sacred and powerful place we have access to.
Let’s Level up our understanding on How We Love, Who We Love and NO Matter What- Why We Love!
Organizing Your Chaos (Life Management Systems)
If you were anything like me, I had not one, two, or three, but four small children. I was a full-time student and had a full time job, all while trying to run a business on the side. My life was nothing short but Chaotic!
Until the day, my life changed…Yes its, the day, I call my crossroad. You’ve heard me talk about the day I almost lost my mind, killed myself and drowned my four children. In my moment of surrender, I realized that who I was in that current moment, was not the person I needed to be to accomplish my dreams. I turned off the television and got super organized and created systems that helped me slay my day.
During this workshop we assess your time management systems and give you new controls to keep your head in the game and your mind free from distractions
Got EQ? Taking Control of Your Emotions, So They Won’t Take Control Over You!
Are you a walking container of rage? Are you snappy and taking your frustrations out on everyone around you? Then you may need to level-up with some EQ!
EQ is a term used to describe your Emotional Intelligence. Your ability to perceive, use, understand, manage, and handle your emotions, so you can make better, more rational, clear, and calibrated decisions.
Remember, it’s not just about what happens to us, but how we respond that determines the outcome of a thing. If we want better outcomes and end results, we must respond differently. This is easier said than done.
During this workshop you will be given some tools and perspectives to help you better respond to situations that yield you a more favorable outcome.
