Marlene Chism offers a new definition for drama: Drama is any obstacle to peace or prosperity. Drama reveals itself in the workplace as negativity, power struggles and gossip. Since all drama contains a relationship component, drama always impacts teamwork as well as client and labor relations, resulting in absenteeism, lost customers, and turnover. To that end, drama hampers productivity and reduces profits.
Through case studies, lively examples, and personal anecdotes from her own life of reinvention, Chism inspires us to recognize drama, step into a new truth, and break unproductive habits and communication patterns. The result is groundbreaking and lasting change through personal responsibility.
Marlene Chism is a speaker, author and founder of The Stop Your Drama Methodology, an eight-part empowerment process to increase clarity and improve productivity and personal effectiveness. She is a dynamic business and motivational speaker who has the unique ability to speak across the boundaries of many types of audiences: from the fortune 500 executives, to HR professionals to front line employees.
