Do the people in your organization need a sense of purpose and calling? Does your organization suffer from apathy, pessimism, or an unenergized workforce? Does the team atmosphere need to be improved?
Through speaking, youth ministry, teaching, and life coaching, I have always enjoyed inspiring people to make personal changes that result in group changes. I combine humor, story-telling, and pragmatic action steps to help the audience come away inspired and ready to make a difference in their world. Finding this calling will not only help each member be personally fulfilled, believe it or not it will help improve team atmosphere and job production, too.
I will give practical ways they can start making a difference now. Your business group will see productivity and worker retention rise. The US Dept of Labor says the biggest reason employees leave their jobs is lack of affirmation. I want to make your workforce a group where encouragement runs rampant and where people want to make a positive impact on each other's lives.
Your business group will see productivity and worker retention rise; members of a church, school, or community group will gain a sense of mission.
Past audiences include: retreat for a hospital leadership team, conference for entrepreneurs & supporters, conference for history teachers, private school fundraising dinner, NJHS induction ceremony, various conferences for parents, confirmation ceremony, youth groups/camps... and on and on!
Career jobs include: Founder/Owner of a teen mentoring/life coaching service, middle school teacher, youth minister.
I would love to talk with you about your group's needs and how I can give the message you want! Please contact me and we'll talk about your needs and how I can help!

Convention in Scottsdale, AZ on 03/25/2013
"Charles created an excellent presentation about how to help students who are bullied for the Arizona School Counselors Association Conference. Participants were impressed with his enthusiasm, humor, knowledge, and the practical steps. He didn't dwell in theory, but was very pragmatic. One school counselor remarked she has been to many trainings on bullying, and this one was by far the best she has ever been to. "
