The People Development Professional
What Dr. Tom Tursich can do for you, your business or organization.
He is familiar with the problems and challenges of owning and managing a small business. He owned a dental practice for 31 years. He continues to be involved in running his own speaking enterprise. In his own words, “he is doomed forever to be a business owner, because he loves the freedom of ownership. ”
Provides assistance to businesses and organizations in utilizing employee strengths and skills to their best advantage and to assist in business growth. This will take place through his workshop, “Organizational Development and Teambuilding with the Myers-Briggs Personality Indicator.” You need to determine the strengths of your people and put them in a position where they truly have the opportunity to succeed.
Provides an understanding of conflict management and communication in the workplace. This occurs through the utilization of the Thomas-Kilman conflict mode indicator and proper communication techniques so that you can manage conflict to your best advantage in your organization. You must appreciate the fact that conflict is necessary for you to grow and develop; otherwise you become a weak jellyfish that is easily crushed by competitors in your industry.
Assists organizations that are undergoing gut-wrenching change. Who could be better to talk about managing change than a person who sold a practice he had managed for 31 years and stepped into a totally different industry at the age of 60? An age when he should have retired to the beach and golf course. He is completely devoted to developing his speaking business.
Informs organizations and individuals about the qualities of leadership in his presentation, “The Call of the Leader.” Dr. Tom has spent the last 20 years of his career analyzing the great leaders of our time in order to assist himself and others in maximizing their leadership capabilities.

The world has become so time-pressured, chaotic and busy that we all desperately need to find a measure of balance in order to avoid burnout, losing a passion for life and spending most of our time putting out brush fires.
Guides employees, individuals and entrepreneurs through their own process of personal development in the presentation, “Life gets Better When You get Better.”
