Leadership Expert and Author Sylvia Lafair Wins 8th Book Award from Paris Book Festival
WHITE HAVEN, Pa., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Just ask Dr. Sylvia Lafair about why we spend billions of dollars to solve stress and conflict-related issues at work and you will hear an earful.
“We have been looking in all the wrong places,” Lafair states. Based on research in her book that continues to rack up awards, she helps us see the shocking similarity between how we behaved in our original organization, the family, and how we bring the patterns we learned as children right into our present organization, the workplace.
“Don’t Bring It to Work” (ISBN: 978-0-470-40436-2: Jossey Bass) explores why we react the way we do in our business endeavors and is nothing short of revolutionary. It recently won the first-place non-fiction award at the Paris Book Festival.
“Think about it this way,” Sylvia says with passion. “We learned about favoritism, back-biting, and compassion as little kids, and,” she pauses to make sure everyone is with her, “these are the same issues we deal with on a day-to-day basis at work.”
In her seminars, Lafair’s instantly engaging manner and skill as a storyteller puts everyone on the edge of their seats as they quickly learn to connect the dots from home to work.
“I’ve studied habits of those who derail success and those who can make positive change happen. Working with business teams I discovered the main ingredients that make teams win at work that I love to share.”
Dr. Lafair’s methods continue to create a buzz. “As we teach in our Total Leadership Connections Program (http://www.ceoptions.com), Observing, Understanding, and Transforming patterns move them OUT of your life forever.”
“Sylvia is a motivating speaker who shares a foolproof system that helps you achieve success not just at work – everywhere. It isn’t difficult or obscure; it makes all the sense in the world,” says Brenda Thompson, HR Director at Landis-Rath, who recently participated in one of Dr. Lafair’s seminars.
