Certified Speaking Professional

“I took your advice to heart and scheduled a meeting with the team member I was having communication issues with. I started the meeting by repeating what I had said in the previous meeting in a more positive way and clarifying that I was very happy with her performance and that I see potential in her for more. We spent the rest of the time chatting about her position, her passions, and her hopes. Not only was she happier after this meeting but her work improved greatly.

It has been six or seven weeks since that meeting. We have a weekly one on one conversation scheduled and I drop in daily by her cubicle to have a light conversation. *I have offered a one on one meeting to my other team members as well. Her performance has improved to the point that I was able to give her the title she has been hoping for and a 15% raise. It is truly my hope to be able to do this across my team.

I am grateful we had our conversation when we did and that you were able to share some great advice.”

“All I can say is WOW! Barb is fun, practical, down to earth and brings such a truth regarding leadership and relating to others in your life both personally and professionally. When I am in a situation that involves something to be discussed or approached, I think, “what would Barb say”? She has helped us so much and she has become a trusted member of our team and her principles are a foundation and guide for my leadership team.”

“Barbara Teicher has presented at all three regional conference events. At our Missouri conference this summer, she was the second rated speaker out of over 40 presenters. Her programs are very well attended. Attendee evaluations say “they love her style” and “they are able to leave and implement her suggestions right away.”

“I have had the privilege of having Barbara Teicher be my career coach through the MBA program. As a coach, Barbara has helped me set and achieve professional goals, and has challenged me to dream bigger. Barbara was instrumental in helping me get the job that I wanted out of college by introducing me to key business professionals, helping me refine my communication skills, and encouraging me to define my career goals. Barbara is also a talented, engaging public speaker and communications expert. I am blessed to have Barbara as a mentor and a friend.”
