    Build Your Business by Building Relationships

    with Mary Owens



    "Build Your Business by Building Relationships" incorporates transformational steps on how to improve communication and utilize better conflict resolution skills through building better relationships within teams, co-workers, clients, vendors, and office personnel.  Simply put, how well you build those relationships determines how well you’ll build your business.  Mary’s added training as a Certified DiSC® Practitioner enables her to provide helpful insights into creating a more productive workplace by identifying and building on people's strengths and by helping them to work through their weaknesses.

    Presentation Lessons:

    1. The 4 Behavioral Styles and how each personal style relates to the others. By understanding these personality differences, they’ll be able to develop a deeper, more thoughtful connection within their personal and business relationships. 

    2. The 4 Mistakes that can derail a relationship and how to avoid them.

    3. The Magic Formula for creating long-lasting and successful business


    When it comes to building your business, this talk is a game-changer.
