Photo shoots with me on location in your office are fun and interactive! Making this team group photo for Keystone International, Inc. involved first getting the lighting right, then getting everyone lined up well and smiling (if they so chose to do so!). I like getting to visit a business' office and getting to know the team through photography.
Thank you Jessica Troy for making these BTS shots and assisting on the shoot!

You can strengthen your resiliency muscle by working to develop your unique combination of inborn abilities and focusing the daily choices you make.
Keystone International, Inc. is offering an interactive 8-hour class is divided into two 4-hour sessions. In the first session, you learn specific tools to strengthen your innate resiliency muscle and then you have the opportunity to practice those tools daily for 3 weeks. When you return for the second class, you will continue to build on what was learned and practiced in the first session.
This course is taught by Anne Lightsey, an exceptional trainer, who provides practical and easily applied learning.

A paragraph from this worth reading article: "Dan helped me cultivate a new lens on leaders that day. The person who knows who he or she is, who stands in himself or herself, and who operates from trust at any level in an organization—that’s a healthy person.
