Training for Businesses and Organizations


We produce workshops taught by top-notch professionals in their field to teach business educational workshops to our members.  As an expert trainer, Dena’s presentation was well-organized, easy to follow and engaging.  She provided employers with practical tips for identifying employee sidetracks; and taught an easy to implement approach for giving on the spot employee feedback that is positive, constructive, and results oriented.

Trainer and Coach

I am an experienced trainer/facilitator and coach. I have provided workshops for businesses and organizations for over 20 years.  My workshops reach a large spectrum of audiences that walk away with real tools and techniques to use in living your life with resilience as a former Instructor at USF, I taught Training and Development in the Organizational Behavior BA program.

Currently I facilitate workshops working with the goal of helping people cultivate joy through wholehearted living.

Using Brené Brown’s book on the Gifts of Imperfection and the works of Dr. Tara Brach, Dr. Rick Hanson and the Greater Good- The Science of a Meaning Full Life, this workshop uses core tools that embrace our ability to live with connection, compassion and courage.

The workshop explores the practice of:

Setting Intentions/Mindfulness                       The Benefits of Gratitude

Navigating Through Difficult Times               Letting Go of Old Patterns

Self –Compassion                                             Cultivating Creativity

Vulnerability, Shame & Authenticity              The Sacred Pause

Letting go of old Beliefs                                   Responding vs. Reacting

Awakening through Anger                              Trusting Ourselves
