Larry’s programs are designed to give your people the tools to help each person discover his or her people-skill strengths and then to develop strategies to capitalize on those strengths. Each seminar (using Inscape Publishing Learning Instruments) gives participants immediate and specific personal feedback, techniques, technology, and strategies for enhancing both personal and team effectiveness. Larry’s programs complement or supplement your existing training.
