What I Like to talk About

Keys to Training and Promoting Your Latin American Workers Successfully
How do you overcome cultural and linguistic barriers to reach your most eager employees? Dr. Julio Birman has trained Spanish-speaking employees throughout the Americas for over a decade. In this presentation you’ll learn how to effectively identify, assess, and create pathways to train and promote your foreign-born employees by understanding how they process workplace opportunities through their unique cultural background.

The Chameleon Leader: An Innovative Approach to Situational Leadership
Is your organization stuck in a circular pattern where problem resolution is always met by the one-size-fits-all approach? How do you get your leadership team to break away from the monotonous Autocratic vs. Transformational leadership debate? Dr. Birman’s energetic presentation will help you break free from traditional thinking and embrace an alternative approach to leadership and conflict resolution. You’ll leave this session with practical tips on how to respond and adapt your leadership style to the specific needs of the situation, rather than just reacting to it.

Communicating What You Really Mean in the Age of Smart Phones
Ever sent what you considered a routine business email or text message, only to receive a negative and emotionally charged response from your recipient? If that sounds familiar, then perhaps it’s time to review how we communicate through electronic messages. During this presentation you’ll learn how to effectively translate verbal language into electronic form so that your messages communicate the correct and appropriate meaning. The session will also help you understand why electronic messages may be easily misinterpreted and how they differ significantly from speaking to someone in person.
