It’s simple. Bring Dr. Gottschalk to your organization…

 Speaking & Workshop Titles:

  • Building Team Resiliency. In today’s modern workplaces, challenge is a given. How your team reacts in the face adversity, and its ultimate capacity to rebound, is a critical element to consider. In the past we have viewed “resiliency” as “trait-like” — but in fact, there is every indication that it is “state-like” — and can be affected through training. (An often overlooked development opportunity.) In this one-day workshop, we help your team prepare for the worst, yet hope for the best — through various activities, assessments and techniques.Crop - LinkedIn

  • How Not to Choose a Manager
    We’ve all heard the stories of managers who simply should not be managing. They breed frustration, exasperation and bewilderment — and their presence can wreak undeniable havoc within a workplace. Ineffective managers can spoil a workplace in no time flat, driving away the most talented of contributors. On the flip side of this, the appropriate selection, development and support of our managers, provides a tremendous opportunity for any organization to sustain itself.

  • How Not to Manage Introverts
