Course Instructor: Betty Lochner, M.Ed, SPHR

My passion for teaching how to become a more effective and confident communicator comes from my 30+ years in a career that focused primarily on manager and staff development. I saw the transformation of staff and managers first-hand as they began to develop better communication skills. 

I soon realized that that building confidence is the quickest way to reaching your goals, especially as an entrepreneur!

As a professional coach and trainer, I have worked with employees of private corporate organizations, small businesses, and government agencies. I focus on how to gain the communication skills and confidence you need in order to move ahead and reach your big goals.

Though the coaching package course, Betty has helped me become a much more confident communicator. I have had my office staff take this course and their skills have improved significantly. I highly recommend this course.
