How to Recover from “The First Glitch”
Why do some of the most promising relationships often end sooner than we’d like? Whether interacting with a new boss, a new employee or a new romantic interest, we begin most relationships with good intentions and positive expectations. It’s only a matter of time, however, before the “first glitch” happens, causing us to step back and reassess our original feelings.
The first glitch is nobody’s fault but it is a determinative factor in all relationships. If not handled properly, we become overly cautious as the hope and optimism that we first felt begins to fade. There’s good news – that terrifying first glitch can lead to a positive experience.
Dr. Jim Goldstein shows audiences how to transform glitches into opportunities for creating stronger, more authentic relationships. Not only can these experiences restore excitement, they even help us feel better about others than we did before the glitch.
This presentation is overwhelmingly popular with college-age students and with corporate audiences.

Are Your Employees Getting Dumber and What is that Costing You?
Are staff members, even long timers, making costly mistakes that surprise you? It’s not the end of your relationship; you can do something about it.

People rarely second-guess assumptions. Does everyone perceive you and your company the way you want to be seen and heard? People make judgments very quickly based on often superficial appearances.

Finally, he shows you how to be seen the way you wish to be seen.
Why We Want What We Want
Ever wonder why we want the particular things in our life?

By understanding how wants are formed we can understand ourselves better as well as the motivations of those around us.
