Opening Keynote: Conscious Communication to Bring out the Best in People

In his trademark entertaining, humorous style, he will show us how to use Conscious Communication® to successfully transform behaviors like: Whining, Negativity, Attacks, Tantrums, Know-it-alls, Think-they-know-it-alls, Sniping, and more.  Dr. Brinkman says, "Communication is like a phone number, you need all the digits to get through and you need them in the right order.  There is a strategy for each of the difficult behaviors that can transform them.  It is just a matter of being a Conscious Communicator® and taking responsibility for the power you have to influence others."
