The original Fred was a mail carrier who passionately loved his job and genuinely cared about the people he served. He went the extra mile and made a difference in the lives of the people he met. We have all encountered “Freds” and anyone can be a “Fred”, someone that uses their passion at work and at home to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Learn how to make a difference every day, become more successful by building strong relationships, create value for others and constantly reinvent yourself.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn the four “Fred Principles”
  • Learn three difference-making strategies
  • Learn seven B’s for relationship building
  • Reinvent themselves and create value for others
  • Develop a Fred Factor Action Plan for improving relationships using what was learned

This workshop is based on the book The Fred Factor: How Passion In Your Work And Life Can Turn The Ordinary Into The Extraordinary by Mark Sanborn and John C. Maxwell.

Target Audience: Individuals interested in enhancing their customer service skills.
