Please join us at our next Career Development Workshop, where Jason Mainard will lead an interactive discussion that focuses on ways to improve your communication skills. At this meeting, Jason will discuss the critical importance of asking questions and will provide numerous examples of “what” to ask and “how” to ask it. In addition, Jason will explain the “Pain Funnel” and how it allows you to become a better problem solver. Anyone involved in sales knows the importance of asking the right questions but these techniques can also improve communication with your boss, colleagues, clients and even your family. This is a class you should not miss.

Jason Mainard has 20+ years of training and leadership experience. He has 10+ years of solid sales, sales management and marketing experience including sales trainer with one of the nation’s largest home builders. Jason's sales and training experience enables him to offer a real world perspective to his clients. Jason has a strong passion for helping people obtain their goals and succeed in their careers.

This is the third and final meeting at which Jason has volunteered to speak about career development topics. We are very thankful and believe you will find his learning objectives to be critically important to you in your career development. And don’t forget, there is never any cost for our service.

We hope you will join us so we can continue to help and support each other! If you have questions or would like to help, please contact:
