Tina has dedicated her career to helping individuals and companies increase their POSITIVITY. Just a simple shift in focus changes our entire experience, whether it's with a major transition, our work, or our colleagues and customers. As an individual, this increases our enjoyment and success at work. As a company, it improves productivity, morale, and retention.
The strategies Tina shares are based in SCIENCE so you can have confidence in the information. This makes her a great fit for organizations that are skeptical of trendy personal and professional development approaches. She entertains and engages audiences while translating fascinating research on how we think.
As a speaker and a corporate trainer, Tina can show you and your colleagues how to:
- Improve the 3 C's – Connection, Communication and Collaboration by broadening our perspectives
- Build internal resources for less stress and more sanity during times of change
- Maximize sales results by understanding our brains and our customer's brains
* Lunch & Learn presentations for departments, groups or clubs
* Keynotes for your organization's or association's next big event
* Workshops and workshop packages for more interactive exercises and personal applications
* Everything DiSC® Personality Style Assessments to improve your people's interactions with colleagues, managers and customers.
Tina has different options that help attendees remember and apply what they've learned, including a Guide to Positive Reflections book, inspirational quote magnets, CD's and even follow-up emails or articles. A quick phone call to discuss the goals for your event and the needs of your attendees is the best way to see if Tina's a good fit for your event and budget.

Tina here - During my 20+ years working in Biotechnology, I worked in small start-up companies and large corporations, from R&D to Operations, and, probably like so many of you, I enjoyed many great work experiences where I felt like I was adding value and having an impact. And, probably like many of you, I suffered through miserable situations that drained the life and joy out of me.
Luckily for me, I discovered a new science called Positive Psychology. To me this was so exciting because here was a science focused on how we could all live our best lives! It had strategies I could actually use to improve my life, and it was information I could share to help others.
Based on my experience, if there's one place we could really use help staying positive, it's at work. So I decided to start my own company, The Positive Edge, with the goal of bringing this information into organizations to help improve the quality of people's work lives and the quality of company cultures.
