Fernandina Beach FL (PRWEB) August 18, 2004
National speaker and executive coach Michael Staver of The Staver Group has released Tips in 20 Minutes, a series of eight CDs that provides effective, concise information on how to resolve business challenges in eight fundamental areas: Achieving Success, Leadership Fundamentals, Resolving Conflict, Staying Calm Under Pressure, Effective Communication, Defusing Anger in Others, Correcting Employee Performance Problems and Communicating with the Opposite Sex. Michael Staver created the CD's so that working professionals can hear the information they need quickly and efficiently Â while commuting to their office or on lunch break.
The CD's are not just informative, but entertaining as well. "You will actually listen to these CD's because you enjoy them, " states creator Michael Staver, "not because you know you should and itÂs good for you and your career."
Each CD walks the listener through a step-by-step process for resolving a particular business challenge. For example, on the Tips in 20 Minutes: How to Identify and Correct Employee Performance Problems, Michael explains how there are three reasons for poor employee performance. He then tells the listener how to identify which problem needs to be addressed and how to resolve the problem Â all in just 20 minutes.
Michael got the idea for the CD's from when he was a practicing couplesÂ psychologist. The couples he counseled were able to resolve their differences in his office. But once they got home, they would forget their newly learned skills and return to their battling ways. Michael realized if he created a 20-minute tape for each couple emphasizing communication skills, negotiation strategies and how to defuse anger, the couples could play the tape in the heat of the moment and resolve their conflict peacefully.
When Michael left his psychology practice to specialize in corporate consulting and executive coaching, the need for quick, hard-hitting information remained. "People donÂt have time to sit through hours of talk to get to the information they want," said Staver. "I give them the answers they need in just 20 minutes."
There are currently eight Tips in 20 Minutes CD titles that can be purchased online at http://www.thestavergroup.com. As the success of the Tips in 20 Minutes CD's grows, Staver will be back in the studio this fall recording eight new CDs he plans to release in the spring of 2005.
