Coaches Encourage - Bosses Punish
An example Keynote Address

GORDON JACKSON'S most popular keynote and banquet address, this presentation reveals the essential steps necessary to mold the best of all types of relationships - whether in the home, in the workplace, in the classroom or in the sports arena. Gordon Jackson draws heavily in this presentation on the "secrets" revealed in his book by the same title and enhances the presentation with a discussion about his own positive relations' experiences as a management attorney, consultant, author, speaker, parent and grandparent. He discusses significant changes that have occurred in recent years that have revolutionized the American home and workplace: transitioning the mindset of the parent from that of a "punisher" to that of an "encourager" and the mindset of the manager from that of a "dictator" to that of a "resourcer."

What they say about Gordon Jackson

"I have to tell you Gordon Jackson was GREAT! I laughed so hard I hurt, and people were telling me at the end of our meeting that he was the best entertainment we'd ever had. I think what made him such a hit was the fact he remembered people's names along with the plants they represented and worked that info into his presentation, which made it personal."
Sandi Worsham, Program Coordinator Occidental Chemical
