    How to Create a Safe Space for Your Propsects and Clients

    in Business

    In taking your prospects from resistant to sharing what’s really going on within their organizations to ready to share confidential information, salespeople must develop a certain amount of trust with their prospect.  Join us for this thoughtful interview with Maxine Attong about how to create a safe space for your prospects and clients.


    Maxine Attong is passionate about writing, facilitation and coaching.  She believes that these skills allow her to live her personal mission statement “To enhance the lives of the people with whom I make contact” 


    Attong is a Certified Management Accountant with over 20 years qualified experience in a range of industries—gas and oil, financial services, retail and manufacturing. 


    She is a Certified Professional Facilitator and a Certified Evidence Based Coach, and uses the magic of coaching to provide safe and confidential environments in which clients can achieve business or personal goals.    Maxine’s coaching style is based on the concepts of positive psychology.  She specializes in transition which she defines as “moving clients from where they are to where they want to be”.  In business, this translates to working with recent promotions, new hires (on boarding), and employees who may present an organizational challenge or executive coaching.


    Maxine is the also the author of two books – Change or Die and Lead Your Team To Win (GreenLeaf 2014).  “Lead Your Team To Win” shares an alternate leadership style that she developed after many years of leading and observing others lead teams.  She suggests that employee’s will achieve optimal performance when leaders provide a safe space within which they can take risks.

    Should Parents Patrol The Streets To Insure Safe Passage To School?

    in Women

    School has started and already incidents of violence have erupted. Police can't be everywhere. It seems that in order for children to get to and from school safely, ALL sane and sober adults need to be enlisted to help insure safe passage. Should parents patrol the streets to insure safe passage to school? What about invasion of school property by armed assailants - how do we protect children from the mentally disturbed individuals who are crying out for help through acts of violence? Will our schools become like prison facilities, with armed guards at every entrance, and all who enter being searched for weapons? How do we return to a sane society where people are civilized?

    A Middle Passage Survivor, in his own words shares his story~ Olaudah Equiano!

    in Education

    Tonight on The Gist of Freedom listen to excerpts from the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, a survivor of the middle passage! www.BlackHistoryBLOG.com
    --Survived The Middle Passage, purchased his freedom, became a black abolitionist  and  authored the first known  Enslaved African Narrative . He was a famous proponent of British abolitionism and worked with William Wilberforce.  His story is featured in the movie Amazing Grace.
    He settled in the United Kingdom in 1792. His autobiography, "The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano", depicts the horrors of slavery and influenced the enactment of the Slave Trade Act of 1807.                                                               


       They put us in separate parcels, and examined us attentively. They also made us jump, and pointed to the land, signifying we were to go there. We thought by this, we should be eaten by these ugly men, as they appeared to us; and, when soon after we were all put down under the deck again, there was much dread and trembling among us, and nothing but bitter cries to be heard all the night from these apprehensions, insomuch, that at last the white people got some old slaves from the land to pacify us. They told us we were not to be eaten, but to work, and were soon to go on land, where we should see many of our country people. This report eased us much. And sure enough, soon after we were landed, there came to us Africans of all languages.

    Environmental Awareness - The Grayl - Safe Drinking Water

    in Environment

    Environmental Awareness - The Grayl - Safe Drinking Water


    Water has shaped our landscapes and every civilization. Today, far too many people do not have access to safe drinking water, and those of us that do rarely have truly clean drinking water. Sadly, serious contaminates such as fracking chemicals, pharmaceuticals and even E. coli contamination are turning up in our "potable" water.


    At GRAYL® headquarters in rainy Seattle, their comparatively clean and abundent water still contains added chlorine, trace amounts of arsenic and lead. They have dared to imagine that it should be possible to avoid both immediate and cumulative water hazards, and we've now made that simple to achieve.


    GRAYL makes water treatment for every occasion, whether that be at the tap, on the trail, or when facing the rigors of international travel. Our interchangeable filter system provides the amount and kind of filtration your lifestyle and location demands.


    The journey to change the way people drink water, and the quality of that water, has been an epic adventure to reimagine something most of us take for granted. GRAYL transforms personal water filtration into something that finally works; a fun easy-to-use personal filtration cup that makes safe, clean drinking water wherever you go.


    About GRAYL
    Founded in 2012, GRAYL® was inspired by CEO and Founder Nancie Weston's concerns about plastic pollution and the poor quality and taste of water she experienced while traveling. The Seattle based company is distributed internationally and is committed to making practical and durable filtration and purification.
