You will learn realistic strategies to break down barriers and begin to see a plausible pathway for whole-life satisfaction.
There is an “X-Factor,” and it’s not what you think. It is not about bolstered confidence, repeated affirmations, or walking on hot coals. It’s not about the right idea, an ancient secret, or a stroke of luck. To hell with luck! It is NOT taught in business school, yet it is knowledge that must be learned. It is a skill that must be practiced. Those who have it are wholly satisfied. Those that don’t, struggle.
The ability to see every human interaction as a series of exchanges you can influence.
The skill to start a new business or manage an enterprise as a series of exchanges you can control.
The capacity for you to be wholly satisfied across many Conditions of Life.*

Our one-day workshop focuses on a primary cornerstone of Transactional Competence™ that we call Personality and Transactional Behavior; it’s about how we approach every exchange. Think about how you and I grapple with our everyday transactions; all of our relationship conversations, business meetings, and essential exchanges.
Often we try to overcome our obstacles with communication classes, leadership programs, or negotiation training – and here’s why it doesn’t work: these tactics don’t account for the simple fact that you and other people are unique. Instead, you must consider your Transactional Behavior while approaching other people from their Transactional Behavior. Personality and Transactional Behavior allows you to understand your own personality and easily influence other personalities.
We introduce Transactional Competence™ – the fundamental and ubiquitous way we engage in everyday exchanges to get what we want. Those who transact powerfully, thrive! Learn what transactions are, how they work, and how to transact efficiently and effectively. Understand how human beings are constantly transacting to satisfy our aims in every Condition of Life™.
Personality and Transactional Behavior: People tend to exhibit personality styles with attributes that make them a perfect fit in some aspects of a transaction. Understanding your own and other’s personalities speeds up any transaction.
The Transaction Cycle: This model helps construct and speed up transactions designed to satisfy our aims.
Influence and Persuasion Principles: Our biology dictates fundamental psychological principles that dictate human behavior. When fully understood, these principles can be practiced and built into the transactions where we want others to say ‘yes.’
