He has provided emotional intelligence training and coaching to numerous Fortune 500 companies and worked with many CEOs and their leadership teams to strengthen their abilities to successfully address both change and conflict.

Within this sampler program to be presented to the FPA, attendees will hear a few examples from each of the nine core competency areas that expert witnesses need to know and that are part of the CFLC exam.
