Richard La Faber

Hi, I’m Richard, and I certainly look forward to working with you during the training. We’re going to have fun learning strategies to improve our personal effectiveness, tips to work better with our team and methods to communicate¬†with more influence and impact.

Here’s a little pre-training survey just so I can know you better. Don’t take too long time going through each question. As a matter of fact, pick the answer that feels right to you.

See you soon.
