Friction and conflict affects our work and one of the primary complaints from managers is that they spend a large percentage of their time navigating workplace conflict. Based on the theory of Dr. Taylor Hartman, Color Code is a Personality Science Workshop that allows you to know yourself and others much better. Color Code is transformative, practical and a compassionate way to understand how we're wired.
Working on your own schedule and at your own pace, you can lasso mid-life challenges and opportunities as you heal from your past and embrace your future. Through an assessment of your personality and preferences, you can understand why you think and act as you do. Then you work through a workbook of self-discovery prompts designed to help you let go of yesterday, forgive and forget, and discover the masterpiece inside of you! Then, explore your purpose and passion at this point of your life to make choices for the best days ahead.
A group isn't necessarily a team.
A team isn't necessarily playing fairly.
Teams fail for as many reasons as they form.
Let's examine your particular team needs, find where you need improvement, and enact change that makes a difference.
A workshop focused on mid-life changes and concerns among working professionals, how to navigate and instigate change, and mindset shifts to help you reframe the changes you may need to make. We also examine the exhaustion, dissatisfaction and depression that can come from mid-life burnout, how to heal and a plan for post-recovery work.
Whether it's ineffective communication, inefficient communication, or lack of communication, this workshop can assist employers in pinpointing breakdowns and making a plan for improvement so that information flows to the right parties in a timely manner.

Affordable limited edition prints and /or originals can be purchased by your organization for you to sell at a price that is profitable for you. I can create an original piece for your organization, or a commemorative event poster / graphics for your fundraising event using my original art. Let's explore the options!
Additionally, over the course of our time together in a workshop, phrases and ideas will emerge from people in your organization. So many workshops produce warm fuzzies but no actionable, lasting impression. With art from Susan D. Sharp in the background, and your words and logo in the foreground, you show an interest in the ideas of your people as actionable and transformative and you enhance the conference room or waiting areas where these pieces will hang. And watch those phrases lead to changes in organizational climate and culture! What are you all about? Let's put it on the wall!
After a keynote or workshop, Susan is happy to sign books and will also appear at book fairs and conferences upon request.
