Choose any of the following topics.  Print the 2 pages, get the book Peace Skills: Swim with the Dolphins, not with the Sharks from www.amazon.com, fill out the quick questions, send in a copy of them (with a self-addressed, stamped envelope) and get your Clock Hours.  And be proud that your self study was real, useful, and worth the hour.

These are all based on Sharon’s popular seminars, with a tropical theme. Great summer project: get your clock hours, prepare to have a better year, and have some tropical fun.


1.  Managing Stress by Increasing Internal Peace (New agey words used, but friendly to Christians or other traditions. Dolphins are just a metaphor.) Chapter one and 5 questions, staff or administrators –  1hour

2. Reducing Conflict through Active Listening  (Chapter 2 and 4 questions.)  staff or administrators,  1 hour

3.  Reducing Conflict through the Assertiveness Technique (Chapter 3  with  7 questions) for staff or administrators 1 hour

4. Reducing Conflict through Swimming Together (How to Handle Difficult People) (Charter Four with just 5 reflective short answer questions, for staff or administrators, 1 hour )

5.  Reducing Conflict by Diagnosing Storms And Intervening   FOR SUPERVISORS (Chapter Five, Six, & Seven and 8 reflective short answer questions for 3 hours)  Will save your work group!  There is nothing like it on the market. This is vital leadership skill.

These should be clickable, but if not, please send an email to  info@orgstrat.net or a letter to P.O. Box 971 Cedar Park, Texas 78630  to get the instructions and questions.

Here is the link to the book in www.amazon.com. Available also directly from Organizational Strategies.

What People are Saying

Would you like Sharon to come back? “Yes! Every day of the year!” Phillip Merritt Owner of ABC Preparatory Academies in Austin Texas

“Sharon has strong abilities in critical thinking. She also has excellent instincts in grasping issues before all the information has been revealed. There have been some occasions where I assumed what she was saying could not possibly be accurate, but in the end she was proved right when the facts were revealed. I trust (or at least pay serious attention) to her opinions.” Walter Lee, former Engineer, Retired Minister PC(USA), QVR Board Member


“Speaker was at ease and able to relate to all participants. All was very good! ” MNKA member

“You kept everything light and moving along. It was great.” MNKA member

“Thanks so much for doing this topic! I’ve been saying this for a long time and no one seems to be hearing me. You have confirmed that I’m not losing my mind. THANK YOU!” MNKA Member

“We sincerely appreciate the time and effort you put into your presentation. Your presentation was a real blessing to the participants, judging from their evaluations. –Terri Sloan, Weekday Ministries Conference

And what I like to hear most, I usually do: “We want to have you back. When can you come? “

Let me know what challenges you are facing.

We all face dragons and wish someone would come along side and help. Let me know what challenge you are facing. If I can't help, I might know someone else who can. Sharon@orgstrat.net . 512/534-5425 - direct line
