Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: For 20 NBA seasons I served as player development mentor and character coach to the Washington Bullets/Wizards team -- surviving 6 coaching changes. These types of experiences have given me a unique inside perspective into team chemistry, leadership, stress, change management, cultural competency, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence and winning/losing at the pro level. Because of my rigorous training and eclectic life experiences...meeting & event planners from around the world call upon me to facilitate top-knotch events and keynote addresses for all types of organizations. Perhaps yours is next? MOST REQUESTED TOPIC: "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"® BIO: JoelSpeaksRealGood dot com CALL: 410..991..9718 -- Let's talk... ____________________________ Off-the-shelf training? No way! It's much more exciting for everyone, to customize training by asking to interview at least 2-3 people -- prior to the event -- to get a better sense of what I will present to the group. Each presentation centers around the implementation of the mission and vision of every organization I work with. I am curious about many things, which has informed what I am passionate about: Leadership. Black History. Rosetta Stone history. Archaeology. The psyche of professional athletes. Real-world problem solving. Conflict resolution. Travel. Entrepreneurship. Emotional intelligence. Comparative religions. Cross cultural competence. And so much more... ...It's what one learns after he/she thinks they know it all that really counts. With travels to well over 55 countries, I have learned much from the people I have met and worked with in those countries.

I would like to thank Dr. Freeman for coming to my agency and giving an excellent presentation on "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy At Work" Here are some feedback from the participants; I will use the task of treating people the way you would like to be treated. Great presenter - very engaging. The examples were easy to relate too. LONGER :) Dr. Freeman was great, it would be awesome if we could get more! This course would be beneficial in assisting all employees to better understand their coworkers and improve work relationships.

Dr. Freeman clearly and engagingly presented a daylong seminar titled “Dealing with People Who Drive You Crazy” to our department. With catch lines such as “you have two ears and one mouth for a reason” and “If you want to go fast, go alone and if you want to go far, go together”. Dr. Freeman’s presentation offered new insights, kept the audience engaged and elicited laughter throughout. He helped us understand our personality type and why some people drive us crazy more than others. He analyzed the organization’s mission statement and even came up with a fun safari analogy for it. The most important takeaway engendered by Dr. Freeman was the creation of the department’s Good Citizenship criteria which has been signed by all the staff, who had appropriate opportunities to discuss and participate. Besides the knowledge gained, it was nice to come away with something concrete to keep the spirit of the retreat alive in the department. Dr. Freeman was a great facilitator and consummate professional. We recommend him for your next event!

Huda: I was especially impressed by the thorough manner in which you and your team vetted me. I learn a lot about people by the questions they ask. And you (and the rest of the team) asked some very insightful questions. I also enjoyed talking with the people you chose for me to talk with prior to the training event. Those conversations helped me immensely in the way I designed and customized the presentation and interactions with the audience to meet the specific needs of your organization. You are a rock star!!! Thanks, Joel

Joel did an amazing job at the NERSC conference. He was very engaging, smart and funny. He kept people paying attention and tuned in. I heard from many RSC's that they loved his presentation. One told me he was the best keynote we ever had. He was very professional and reachable. He shared some of his personal experiences, but just the right amount. This included a huge shoe from a basketball player (he worked with in the past) that more than a few folks came up to get pictures/selfies with. He helped people really understand their own personalities, and others who can be vastly different. He also helped folks to understand why some people drive you crazy, and why you would drive them crazy! This was based on different ways people approach the same issues and situations in their own unique and different ways. I know his work will help many people be kinder about how they look at people who are different than they are, which will improve relationship for those they work with and those they serve. We were very pleased with his work for us. We would highly recommend him for other conferences. He went out of his way to negotiate a way to be able to serve us, which was very appreciated.

Dr Freeman is hands down one of the most engaging speakers that I have ever had the opportunity to learn from and work with! I have been in management for 40 plus years, owning several businesses and I have spent many years in academia working on my own degrees and training. Throughout my personal and professional journey I have been exposed to many talented, exceptional people! Joel Freeman stands out as one of the best. He knows how to connect with his audience. He has an amazing amount of knowledge that covers many different topics for speaking and training. He's funny and he has many amazing experiences from his own personal and professional journey that he brings to the table. His speaking style comes from a place of humility and authenticity! His humility is something that I truly value. Having been exposed to a lot of brilliant people throughout my journey, I have come to believe that a brilliant mind that is not tempered with humility is a waste of a brilliant mind, arrogance is an obstacle to the authenticity of transformative learning. The kind of learning that makes us reach deep down inside to be open to learning, admitting we're wrong or even at times uuninformed is best facilitated I believe from a place of humility. Joel Freeman brings all that and more! Selena Eldridge Regional Director Safe Harbor Behavioral Care and Safe Harbor Christian Counseling
