He is the author of Self-Talk: Sign of Sanity, Insanity, or the Key to Self-Empowerment. The book takes a realistic look at how personal and individual feelings are formed, and illustrates how monitoring and changing one’s “self-talk” empower one with the keys to self-management.

Program Description

Gentle Teaching (GT) has the recipe for bringing people together. Regardless of whether one is a Supervisor, Subordinate, Direct Care Worker, Friend, Neighbor, or the Enemy. The Central underlying theme for GT is Unconditional Love or Unconditional Positive Regard. This means that everyone is treated Respectfully and has Care and Genuine Concern for another’s Well-Being even if there is no reciprocation from the other person(s).

GT Enables the Establishment and Maintenance of Positive, Participatory, Mutually Beneficial, and Harmonious Relationships. Allow me to share with you how the “Tools” of Gentle Teaching “Eyes”, “Touch” and “Words” can Empower you to “Bond” with Others and bring Unity.
