Peace in the Workplace Seminar

Getting It, Keeping It, Sharing It… and how it adds to profitability.

What is this seminar about?

Getting, Keeping, and Sharing PEACE for ourselves and our workplaces is possible. It is not an on-off switch, but a graduating thermostat of success—simply doing more of what works. The additional “big win” here is that it is indeed very profitable to embrace these techniques. This innovative seminar shows how.

Who should attend?

Managers and Owners from all industries will appreciate this (slightly alternative) one-day seminar. The day explores innovative methods to build a kinder, gentler culture in the workplace. But don’t be mistaken, for everything we address has a tie-in to a more profitable bottom line. It’s simply a newer, distinct kind of conversation.


Your Presenter/Facilitator, Tim McHeffey brings over three decades of workplace wisdom as a manager, speaker and author. He has worked with big and small companies, profit and not-for-profit, and has trained thousands of business people across the country. This seminar is based on his latest work-in-progress: “Peanut Butter and Jelly Religion… Finding Peace in Your Workplace, Your Home, Your Self ” (conquering fear and being happy in everyday spirituality).

Participants will take with them… their own customized action plan (to begin tomorrow!) guaranteed to improve the culture of communication—generating and improving peace for ourselves and our companies. This inevitably heightens the direction of improved efficiencies and effectiveness in daily productivity. Net result: increased, measured profitability.
