Gossip. Power Struggles. Poor team coordination. These are all symptoms of workplace Drama. Drama drains your company of its best talent, gets in the way of productivity and profit and erodes your personal effectiveness. Drama always proceeds unwanted turnover. People leave bosses—not companies. The Society of Human Resources Management, SHRM estimates that turnover costs 30-50% of the annual salary for entry level employees, 150% of mid-level employees, and 400% for specialized high level employees.
In today’s climate of uncertainty and rapid change where competition is fierce and economic challenges more intense than ever, cutting drama has never been more essential.

“I had the pleasure of attending one of your seminars and meeting you at the National PAHCOM Conference, in Phoenix, AZ. I came aware energized and excited to “rethink” my position and accept the fact that most of the drama was caused by me enabling the employee to continue down the drama highway. I am rowing the boat (sometimes one handed as the other is plugging holes); however, I have the vision and the goal in sight.”
–Suzette Benedick, CMM
“This was far and away the best seminar I have ever attended, because Marlene did not teach it, she explained how she lives it. She coached us to see how we can live it also. I thought the program was as close to perfect as possible.”
