Pastor Al Garcia, while leading the weekly workshop, conducted the meeting with sensitivity to what we were all experiencing. Sensing the stress and anxiety levels of the group, his voice communicated his genuine care and concern for our present trials but hope for a better future. Specifically, I enjoyed the integration of both biblical skills along with practical ideas. I was struck by the principle that he taught that if you have experienced a bad job environment where you needed to personally make some changes, that anticipating that the same issues would not reappear in the next job situation would be unwise. I knew that principle in relationships with people but had not ever thought about it in a job context. I look forward to future Career Workshops conducted by Pastor Al Garcia.
Al Garcia understands the needs and mission of the corporation and the individual. His listening skills, along with his ability to empathize with clients, allow him to assess each one’s needs. He is then able to respond to each client as a unique individual. He coaches with vigor and commitment to the participants. Al Garcia is able to present information in such a way that clients become energized and enthusiastic about their future employment and the work required to obtain it.

Last year in Minneapolis I attended Mitch Kusy's and Elizabeth Holloway's rollout of their new book on toxic personalities. As a former Human Resources executive I was interested in the topic because toxic individuals in organizations have been the bane of HR's and management's existence. From the beginning of the presentation to the end, I found myself nodding in agreement. Mitch and Elizabeth don't rely on anecdotes, but build their premises and conclusions on solid research and data. They are also both excellent presenters, segueing from one section to the next and from each other with ease, polish and professionalism. Anyone attending their presentations will come away with the confidence and information to handle one of management's thorniest problems.

’Toxic Workplace’ describes how to identify and best work with toxic personalities. It also provides a systemic approach for creating a culture that’s positive and respectful while improving the bottom line. Kusy and Holloway share how their national research translates into real-work practices in organizations. I endorse their practical, concrete approaches that will make a significant difference in organizations today and in the future.

’Toxic Workplace’ brings a rare and valuable view of one of the great challenges facing leaders in today’s organizations. It is a significant guidebook to the healthy enterprise of the future, not only because of Kusy and Holloway’s systems approach to dealing with toxic personalities, but also their unique practice of creating communities of respectful engagement. This book demonstrates how this impacts both organizational social responsibility and the bottom line.
