San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 3, 2006
American businesses are facing challenges on many levels; more so than ever before in this country’s history. The biggest challenge is just getting people to work together without driving each other crazy.
The problems associated with difficult work relationship issues are on people’s minds and everywhere in the news. Recent surveys featured on CNN documented the problems people have with “annoying co-workers.” A new book, Working with You Is Killing Me, has been featured on many news programs and talk shows.
There are people attempting to do something about it, and one of them is Ric Giardina, founder and president of The Spirit Employed Company. He and his company have been successfully specializing in the area of interpersonal workplace relationships.
That was the inspiration for William Shatner’s (yes, Capitan Kirk of StarTrek fame) television program, Heartbeat of America and its “Keeping America Strong Awards.”
The Spirit Employed Company (http://www.spiritemployed.com) and its founder, Ric Giardina were recipients of the “Keeping America Strong” award for 2006 from cable television’s Heartbeat of America, hosted by William Shatner (yes, Captain Kirk of StarTrek fame), for their efforts in bringing spirit back to the America’s workplaces.
In his work as a executive, management consultant and executive coach, Ric has seen first hand the damage done to organizations due to the difficult relationship issues people have with their leaders, within their teams, and in managing their direct reports. These relationships issues damage an organization and its productivity—whether profit, not-for-profit, or government agency and, consequently, our country as a whole.
Now, in an effort to assist businesses and the people who work in them, Ric is offering a no-cost teleseminar that will discuss “The top 5 relationship problems in work groups and how to solve them” in April 2006.
Ric will be interviewed by Art Giser of Extraordinary Leaders and Teams, http://www.ExtraordinaryLeadersandTeams.com. Participants will be able to submit their work relationship issues to Ric ahead of the seminar by going to http://www.askRicGiardina.com.
