  • Key Tips for Improving Communication & Expanding Leadership

    in Goals

    It’s well known that good communication is the foundation of any successful relationship, whether personal or professional. It's important to recognize, though, that it's our nonverbal communication—our facial expressions, gestures, eye contact, posture, and tone of voice—that speak the loudest. The ability to understand and use nonverbal communication, or body language, is a powerful tool that can help you connect with others, express what you really mean, and build better relationships.
    Leading is all about influence. How you present yourself in a leadership role affects your ability to successfully leverage authority and motivate others. Do you inspire people to follow your lead?
    Today's Guest is Joe Yazbeck who is an internationally known Master Speaker and Trainer among his many other accomplishlishments.  Mr. Yazbeck is a New York Times Best Selling Author and the author of the extraordinary book No Fear Speaking.

  • Corinne Zupko: From Anxiety to Love

    in Spirituality

    Anxiety can be scary and even life threatening. Guest Corinne Zupko shares how you can go from Anxiety to Love and live a life free of worry and full of miracles!  
    Author Corinne Zupko, EdS, LPC and licensed counselor and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher, undertook her study of psychology out of necessity when debilitating anxiety threatened to derail her life. Seeking ways to do more than temporarily alleviate her symptoms, Corinne began to study A Course in Miracles (ACIM), mindfulness meditation, and the latest therapeutic approaches for treating anxiety.
    As Corinne healed her own mental anguish, she compiled the perception-shifting process described in her book From Anxiety to Love: A Radical New Approach for Letting Go of Fear and Finding Lasting Peace. As a licensed counselor and keynote speaker, she’s helped thousands of individuals through one-on-one counseling, weekly meditation classes for corporations, and the largest virtual conference of ACIM in the world, through the organization Miracle Share International, which Corinne cofounded.
