Value Packed Opportunity to Make an IMPACT LIVE with Sherry Blair


This mastermind event is a two-day hands-on immersion opportunity to dive deep and to explore ways to address the challenges in your workplace. You will leave with a roadmap for enhancing the success you are already achieving or to get you to take the first step to move away from a negative work environment and to increase performance & productivity. Regardless of where you are, every organization needs to increase their performance and productivity and benefit from creating a positive culture. This won’t be lecture, lecture, lecture and a ton of slides (you will get that later in the online course to review at your convenience). Roll up your sleeves and get ready to work. Come in comfortable clothes. Bring your notebooks. This isn’t play time. This is for you if you: 1) Play full out! 2) Are coachable 3) Are willing to work as a team (MASTERMIND) 4) Want to have a little fun along the way!

What are people saying?

Filled with wisdom and practical guidance. Life Changing!

Phil Rosen HRSA HCCN Grant Project Director @KeyCare, the NJ Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN)

Our organization embarked on a “Joy IS the Work” journey to gradually create and nurture long-lasting positive change, in a joyful culture, that improves quality of life and care in health centers. We are fortunate to have Sherry Blair and her staff guiding us on this all-important, life changing journey. Our first step in the journey has been to train the leadership in the comprehensive approach and skills in the “IMPACT Performance & Productivity: Lead Positive Change in Your Organization” course developed by the Sherry Blair Institute for For Inspirational Change. This well-researched and expertly delivered course is filled with wisdom and practical guidance. Those who are serious about creating and nurturing long-lasting positive change will need to invest sufficient time in learning the course material and then applying it to their organization and personal lives. The results will be life-changing and well worth the time spent. Thank you Sherry!

Work became enjoyable and rewarding

Peggy Archuleta, AZ

“When I started applying the strategies, I started looking at these people that I work with differently. I began to look for their great qualities, and there they were! I just hadn’t been focusing on them before. My outlook changed immediately, and so did our relationships. Work became so much more enjoyable and rewarding. When I presented the strategies to our people in a staff meeting, the immediate enthusiastic response was, ‘This is what we need!’ There was no resistance at all.”
