From Tears to Triumph

An inspirational program on leadership, diversity and the strength of the human spirit and is based upon the true story of my bicycle accident in the south of France in 2019 and the topic of my second book (out fall/winter 2021).


Motivating, educating and inspiring, Barb brings perspective (and a smile) to the importance of having women in leadership positions. She shares insight into why women’s careers may be stalling and delivers a critical three-step approach that can result in not only propelling careers, it can also result in greater emotional intelligence, more productive teams, a unified, supportive corporate cultures and truly engaged team members.


Words are powerful tools. Do you wonder why, at times, someone takes offense at something you’ve said…and you have no idea why? It’s not just what you say, it’s HOW you say it.

The “way” you say something can be more important and impactful than the words you actually use. The intent behind the words we try to convey may actually be in opposition to the message perceived. They are often not in sync at all. Why?

Discover the secrets of the messages you’re really sending and how to change perceptions because, “It’s Not Just What You Say, It’s HOW You Say it.”

Key Takeaways:

  • Diagnose the situations/people where a level of discomfort exists and why.
  • Recognize the reasons for disconnect in conversations and relationships.
  • Confirm your perception is their reality with the 6 steps in the “It’s HOW You Say It” principal.
  • Learn how the “It’s HOW You Say It???” principal can make a V.A.S.T.difference

Barb has delivered hundreds of workshops to hundreds of corporations with excellent results and reviews. Workshops focus on key challenges facing these companies or the teams within them. Workshops are fully customizable and interactive.
