Professionalism In The Workplace

This staff presentation originated over 30 years of visiting and viewing treatment centers through the eyes of the prospective client. In addition, it was developed at the request of CEO’s from treatment centers throughout the United States. My ultimate goal through these teaching seminars is to set a benchmark as it pertains to staff image and professionalism and as it is seen though the eyes of the consumer. Topics to be discussed are:
  • + Attitude

  • + Professionalism

  • + Product Knowledge

  • + Ethics

  • + Dress

  • + Staff Recommendations

It is my hope that the audience will understand the importance of this presentation and will encourage their colleagues to observe and practice the recommendations.

Motivational Intervention

The intervention procedure to be presented in this workshop will be based upon experience from more than 3,500 cases. This well-defined process is molded around a positive, inspirational and loving technique. Motivational Intervention yields a very high success rate. Ninety-five percent of those intervened upon enter a treatment center the day of the intervention. With this dynamic process of intervening--family, friends and loved ones present positive experiences to the patient and honor them for that day. There is normally no leverage or consequences given to the patient.
