The Communication Skills At Work Program allows participants to develop techniques to build self-esteem and effectively formulate solutions to unhealthy, non-productive situations. This class provided me with all of the necessary tools to confront, address and overcome a difficult situation with a supervisor. The net result was a win-win solution. I discovered that I did indeed possess the courage and skills to speak up in a positive way that brought to light negative feelings without an all-out attack on my supervisor. My only regret was not knowing about these skills sooner. Thank you, Joyce!
Joyce Weiss has a knack for getting to the point when it comes to communication. Her program has taken us to another level in our communication throughout all ranks of our organization. This has allowed us to cut through our personal barriers to get to the real issues at hand.

Our team was tremendously impacted by Joyce’s program on understanding yourself and others. There were several people in our office who did everything possible to avoid one another inside or outside of the office before going to the program. During the workshop, Joyce helped everyone to see how the negative energy affected the whole office. By the end of the workshop, there was a tremendous difference in the functionality of the office because the stress level of everyone was dissolving. Several weeks went by and one day I noticed the two people that had the main issue with one another were having a deep conversation with each other. Thanks, Joyce.

First thank you for your support during my Coaching Process. It was amazing how the coaching sessions helped me to change paradigms and limiting beliefs about the possibility to improve communication processes.
Now I know that through meaningful questions, self-awareness and dialogue, communication and the quality of interactions can be improved.
One of my original concerns when starting the coaching sessions, was the length & effectiveness of the process. I was very pleased to see how fast my interactions with Managers and colleagues improved with just few sessions.
I am very thankful for your support on helping me bring out the best of me, and for helping me clarify my thought process and goals. I loved your energy and professionalism, I will sure miss you.

I have used Joyce’s executive coaching services many times over the past ten years. Manufacturing is a very hectic environment, where it is easy to see a need, but not always easy to have enough time and expertise to address the problem. In steps Joyce! Over the past 10 years, I used Joyce as an executive coach for many my direct reports. Joyce’s relationship with the subordinate is confidential. This allows Joyce to really peel the onion back and help the individual achieve their maximum potential. Joyce is very flexible. She works via conference and Skype, keeping the cost of her services to a minimum. If you have a leader that needs to be developed for a mutual benefit to your company and to the employee, I encourage you to give Joyce a call!

This fall the Grand Rapids Fire Department contracted Joyce Weiss Training and Development to assist our officers to better understand their DISC profiles. Speaking to 90 seasoned fire officers is no easy task for an outsider to our organization. Joyce spent significant time interviewing key representatives and learning our organization. An engaging style and command of the room established Joyce’s credibility early on and created an open environment for easy and valuable conversation. I would highly recommend Joyce Weiss to assist any organization who wishes to develop better internal communications.
