If you are looking for a fun speaker to bring awareness that inspires accountability and action, Colette Carlson is the real deal.

As a crowd-pleasing speaker with proven results, Colette's clients include Boeing, Cisco, Microsoft, New York Life, PepsiCo, Proctor & Gamble and the United States Government. She serves as Leadership Faculty for Executive Women International and writes a monthly column, "Tactfully Speaking," published in Business Management Daily. She is a contributing author in Conversations on Success and The Book of Riches. Colette's work has been featured in Success, Working Mother and Personal Development Magazine, as well as the motivational movies, Pass It On and Riches: 7 Secrets of Wealth You Were Never Told.

With a master's in Human Behavior and a fascination with communication trends, Colette delivers the latest research letting the facts support the fun. She engages an audience with her energetic style, inspirational anecdotes and quick sense of humor. At the core of Colette's presentation is her passion for sharing the tools, terminology and techniques that encourage people to excel.

Colette learned her Speak Your Truth message the hard way. She started out a big, fat liar. Literally! Only by telling the truth on herself and admitting her fears did she break through her complacency, lose over 50 pounds, embrace healthy risks and enjoy success.

Colette found the courage to leave the safety net of a monthly paycheck and boldly step into the livelihood of commission-only sales. Working for sales legend Tom Hopkins, she quickly ascended to become the #1 sales producer. Her immediate success led to an opportunity to join sales guru Brian Tracy's international organization, and shortly thereafter she became a National Sales Trainer for US West.

Knowing that it is more fun to learn through play, than to discover truths the hard way, Colette eases the audience into a heartfelt, humorous look into their own lives, bringing about the self-awareness that begins real change.

Laugh and learn with Colette as you step into the Truth Booth and receive the tools necessary to create positive, long-lasting change.

The Language of Leadership
Successful leaders understand the nuances in communication that make a big difference when inspiring action and cooperation. Leaders know the power of their words and understand that words alone do not generate allegiance and loyalty. A leader must be authentic and exhibit the behaviors conveyed in their message to maintain respect for their authority. Learn how to advance your communication style, increase your credibility, earn respect and gain support while guiding your team to achieve remarkable results.
Stress Less, YOU Management vs. Time Management!
The truth is most businesses today expect managers and employees to produce more in less time with fewer resources, while staying positive and engaged. The reality is we are stressed out, tightly wound, and exhausted trying to meet and exceed expectations. We have the best intentions that seem to go out the window before lunch as we are constantly changing schedules, demands and priorities. It's no longer about time management, it's about YOU management. After Colette's humorous program, you will walk away ready to make positive, long-lasting change the next day.
