Fire in the Belly
What Engages Us in Work

“Every person represents a complex puzzle of what makes them tick and what urges them to take the risk to step towards an unknown future. By understanding a person’s work motives, we have insight into how to guide, supervise and coach a person to achieve success based on their own definition.”   

~ Denise Bissonnette

Denise requires 60 minutes for this keynote but suggests 90.

Target Audience:

Employers, employment specialists, job coaches, vocational rehab counselors, job developers, case managers, and those serving in the role of supervisors and managers.
