NICE TO MEET YOU
I'm Janelle Abela
As a former K-12 teacher, I've come to realize that we have never really been taught how to talk to each other. This is the biggest barrier that I now face as a training facilitator. Workplaces are moving towards change but the critical first step is often overlooked – building conversation confidence. In response I created resources to use in my training sessions that would help develop this confidence, alongside trust and open-mindedness.
With high demand – I've now compiled these resources and build an all-in-one toolkit for leaders to develop these skills within their organization. Agree to Disagree is a fine-tuned compilation of my slides, speaking points, discussion guides, conversation starters, response prompts, feedback models, and more.
I am thrilled to have this opportunity to increase your team's interpersonal skills and to help you help your people.
Janelle's trainings are impactful. I recommend Janelle for any leadership development programs that will improve leadership capability and promote workplace culture.
