Training\nKevin Catlin and ISI training adheres to the principle that each adult learns differently. As such, ISI does not employ a cookie cutter or off-the-shelf approach to training.

Customization has been shown to achieve greater strategic results and increase implementation and employee retention.

We combine these real world experiences with the best practices in adult learning and motivation.\n\nISI offers 3 different approaches to training for you to take advantage of:\n\nISI develops, produces, and facilitates custom curriculum for your organization.

You ended the talk with powerful ideas and examples of how changing one's attitude and self- talk can lead to greater success and fulfillment. Everyone felt inspired and encouraged to walk their own path to true accomplishment and self-esteem. I would definitely highly recommend you as a motivational speaker or seminar leader to any group.
