White Haven Pa, September 12, 2013 ---- What do Michelle Dockey, Claire Danes, Robin Wright, Elizabeth Moss, Connie Britton, and Kerry Washington all have in common besides their nominations for “Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series?”
Whether they win the coveted Emmy or not, each one will receive a copy of “GUTSY: How Women Leaders Make Change,” by Sylvia Lafair, PhD, as part of their Emmy “swag bag.”
Lafair’s book has won numerous awards including First Place in the Paris Book Festival and Best Business Book to Read at the Beach.
Lafair, recently seen on the TODAY Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda has vital information for today’s women to become powerful leaders, both in the work world, as well as in personal relationships.
Her unique perspective is that we bring behavior patterns from our original organization, the family, into our present business setting. Her tools and techniques are creating waves in organizations that are forward thinking and are destined to be on the great places to work list.
“Our team has learned about patterns and it has had amazing positive results” --- Laurie Wade, Educator, Hershey Pa.
Passionate about her research, Lafair says “Stress is the modern day killer. What I have discovered is that when stress hits the hot button we all tend to revert to patterns we learned as kids for protection and survival. While they may have helped us when we were three or seven they backfire when we are in our gorgeous stilettos.”
She offers her OUT Technique™ (OBSERVE, UNDERSTAND, TRANSFORM) which gives a roadmap for learning what pushes our buttons and what to do to handle the stress and frustration of annoying situations.
“I was thrilled to have the opportunity for “GUTSY” to be given out at the Emmy’s.” Lafair commented.
“In fact, everyone in attendance at the awards ceremony will get a copy of the e-book and my hope is that it will spark interest for the guys to read, too. Interestingly, I have received emails from men thanking me for helping them understand the females in their lives better.”
Women who work in vast and varied organizations have given “GUTSY” thumbs up. “While the OUT Technique requires some strength training, it makes all conflict situations faster to resolve in a more lasting way.” ---- Brenda Thompson, H.R. Expert, Wilmington, DE.
The GUTSY WOMEN WEEKEND RETREAT facilitated by Sylvia Lafair will take place Friday evening, November 1, 2013 through Sunday morning November 3, 2013 at The Country Place Retreat and Conference Center in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pa.
Those who have gone through the program say “It is the best gift you can give yourself or to a friend or a family member. It is one of those gifts that keep on giving ever after.” --- Nadia Ratycz, Engineer, N.J.
