*Putting Your World into Words
Memoir writing. What would you give to know the thoughts and feelings of your great-grandparents? Who were they? What was a typical day in their life? What were their hopes, their feelings, their accomplishments? Your children and grandchildren will want to know these things about you. Put your world into words for future generations.
Remember: you might be very interesting today, but you'll be fascinating in fifty years.

E-Mail: The Do's & Don'ts Tour
E-mail is both easy and hard. Easy to send, but hard to use properly and consistently. Because we have to send so many of them, we use short cuts. And short cuts can lead to disaster. The Do's & Don'ts program is funny and informative (in that order), and there you'll find out how to avoid hurt feelings, misunderstandings, and lost business. Jay's guarantee: you'll pause before you click that Send button.

 
*You Donít Say!
Body Language. She's twisting her ring. He's adjusting his cufflinks. We constantly provide nonverbal messages during business and social interactions without even realizing it. Learn to interpret the volumes people speak even when they don't say a word.

*Cultural Dynamics
Why should a man not put a Chinese colleague's business card in his wallet? Why should you be careful when ordering five drinks in a Greek bar? Why should you not ask a British person what s/he does for a living? Today's global climate provides the opportunity to interact with many cultures -- Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South America, Africa -- and the possibility of causing offense and misunderstanding. Learn the cultural differences in gestures and communication styles and uncover a new world of meaning.

 
 

Platform Shoes
You have to talk to a crowd, and you're nervous. But you know more about the topic than your audience does; that's why you're standing up there. Walk the platform with confidence. Take control of the stage. Speak the words and make the moves that command attention and get results!

*A Matter of Style
She never looks at me when I'm talking. He constantly interrupts. Adapt to peopleís personal styles of communication via gender, age, culture, and personality type. Listen actively for cue words by filtering out distractions. And learn what your communication style is!
