Smart Eating: Food for Thought Workshops

Just think about it. What we eat affects every aspect of our lives. Food not only fuels the processes that enable us to move, think, and breathe; it also defines who we are. What we eat can affect our immune system, ability to handle stress, and even relationships. It can affect our brains and thinking processes. Smart eating is what the Chef Marshall Group is all about: energizing the body and the brain for optimal performance.

Conflict Management: Resolving Conflict Constructively

Leaders with conflict management skills have the ability to address and resolve the contradictory interests of two or more parties in a high-emotion, low-trust environment. When conflict is managed effectively, it can bring new levels of understanding, empathy and trust between parties. Our facilitators are ready to guide you through these best practices.
