An active member of Toastmasters in Menifee, California, Denis is a story contributor being published in the Heart of a Toastmaster book. The program begins with Sheryl sharing with how she ended up at a much-needed Toastmasters Club, and the long-lasting benefits to her business.

She offered fun insights into the Table of Contents of the book, and stories behind the stories, including Lee Robert, daughter Cavett Robert, Founder of the National Speakers Association.

Denis asked Sheryl to share what most businesses are challenged with these days, to which she replied: morale, communication and lack of employee engagement. She offered the 5 common types of attitudes, and how to bring Stephen Covey’s Whole-Person Paradigm into the workplace for intrinsic motivation and greater results.

The interview was held over Google+ Hangouts, from Denis in the studio and Sheryl in her San Diego office.
