Speaker Opportunities; Transformational Speaking & Training
We contract with entrepreneurs and companies looking for a transformational speaker or trainer that delivers sustainable change. Our 360² methodology includes group training with optional follow through one-on-one OWL (Organize With a focus to Liberate) plans that help you create a productive work, happy home, and prosperous you.
For those looking for a long-term partnership with sustainable results, we ensure your training aligns with company goals. We create, monitor, and analyze reporting metrics to measure the impact of training activities and turnover rates.
Collaborating with Leaders
We help you look at tools and training solutions to address and bridge the gap with all employees between knowledge, competency, and skills.
To create a stronger change agent and reinforce the training, we can help you develop individual learning plans and curriculum for each trainee to improve training effectiveness by developing new approaches, techniques, and sharing best practices all while making support readily available.
Communicating with Management Throughout the Training Process
Looking at performance data and observations, we recommend ways to improve your training impact. Do you need to create and implement standards for training development, delivery, and measurements?
Training is an investment, not an expense. Maximize your return on that investment with in-house programs. Allow attendees to grapple with real work issues, they produce better outcomes than public offerings.
Small to Medium Enterprises (SME) frequently do not have the resources to have a full-time speaker or trainer experts on staff. Balance and Harmony 360² is available to provide training expertise on a retainer basis with a training plan.
The most common arrangement involves services one day per week, several times per month, or one time per month or quarter. This is more productive and cost effective than random training sessions.

Final PhilosophyBusinesses face many different challenges every day and finding exciting workshops that keep the employees engaged while addressing those problems can be difficult. One of our clients, Pee Dee Mental Health Center, had this to say after a one-day training on Teaching Your Employees How to Rock!
Participants appreciated the opportunity to interact with each other while learning about key concepts such as strategies for survival and teamwork through creating a group emblem. Several attendees noted that the speaker kept the audience engaged by varying her tone and her style. Many appreciated the mixture of lecture, group interactions, and exercises. I highly recommend Balance & Harmony 360² “training’s,” as they are ideal for organizations seeking dynamic speakers who can address workplace issues such as motivating employees to higher performance by embracing change. Our staff has requested more training by Melinda Smith!
It is important to understand your company’s weakness and strengths within its employees, who gets held back, and who is holding back. There are five common challenges that most businesses struggle with on a regular basis. Our goal at Balance and Harmony 360² is to help your business recognize these main issues, understand them, find solutions, and develop a plan by applying our proven methods, all while keeping a 360² sense of balance. Here are the five most commonly seen challenges within businesses that could be affecting you and your team.
Do your employees struggle with change? Let us help embrace change.
Embracing change is the most important concept in which you can train your team. The world is always moving at a rapid pace and companies who fail to adapt and change, often find they are lacking behind the competition or find themselves out of business.
In our book The Complete Guide for Balance & Harmony, Melinda says:
The concept of change is two-sided. On the one hand, change is something humankind views as inevitable, or unavoidable. On the contrary; people seem to think that just ignoring change will cancel its effect or even existence. No matter how someone views change though, one thing remains clear in today’s society: It is possible to regulate and measure change.
Nevertheless, what if ‘change’ was different? What if you were unable to regulate or shut out new ideas and concepts as history repeatedly proves? What happens when you can no longer ignore your surroundings; when you find yourself swept away by a force you can never actually understand? The answer comes, not by accepting or ignoring this concept, but by actually embracing change for what it is and using it to enhance your life.
Does your team view change as an opportunity for future success or view change as uncomfortable or undesirable? Do some team members ignore change altogether?
Our training courses teach people not to fear change or see it as a negative trait, but to understand and embrace change with zest and a new pair of eyes.
Do your employees lack a cohesive culture or underutilize diversity?
Let us help develop a consistent culture and celebrate differences.
Developing a coherent culture begins by celebrating our differences. When you think of the workforce today, we have more personalities, generations, and ethnicities working together than ever before. It’s important to train your staff on what makes the team come together and achieve more than they thought possible by leveraging the power of our differences.
The overall atmosphere and the people you hire define the culture of a company. It’s important to be intentional about creating the type of atmosphere you want and hiring individuals who fit into your culture. The best businesses to work for have developed a unique culture, clearly defined core values, and have purposeful hiring practices that set them apart. They not only have them represented on a poster across the office but also live true to the core values on a day-to-day basis. Those core values are lived out across employees, vendors, customers, a board of directors, and everyone in between.
Our training courses will not only discuss workforce differences and issues that arise from those differences, but challenge you to think outside of your “norm” and look at developing a culture, core values, and atmosphere that is uniquely yours.
Does the chaos of the day prevent you from being productive?
Let us help train your staff to be more productive and appreciate the need to plan.
Ever changing economics and uncertainty causes many companies to forgo spending time dreaming of where the company wants to be long-term. Many companies struggle with defining what the long-term vision or picture will look like or fails to cascade that information down the ranks. For others, they spend an over-exuberant amount of time planning out specific pages upon pages, only to have it sit in a drawer unused. Or unable to adapt and make changes quickly.
While others have mastered long-term planning, they struggle with how to implement those plans to a day-to-day focus. The pace of life has become so quick and immediate that companies are often overlooking their future just to get by in the now.
Our courses will educate the team on how to plan effectively for the long haul while learning organizational and efficiency skills that focus on short-term goals.
Do you hear “it’s not my job” throughout the day?
Let us train your entire staff to be strategic thinkers with a focus on innovation and solving problems.
The fast paced economy and ‘just getting by’ mentality once again causes strategic thinking and problem solving to be often overlooked by many employees as they focus on putting out daily fires. Slack in these two skills could certainly put a company under or keep the market share low. When problems happen, we want individuals to rise to the occasion and focus on solutions, not wanting someone else to fix it. Being diplomatic means:
- Utilizing common and ordinary items in new and improved ways with a focus on what you have at your disposal versus an emphasis on a lack of resources or money
- Leave the competition behind by entering a market that is open and undisturbed
- Working for the company through the Dream, Plan, Train, and Do stages
- Implementing SMART Meetings and SMART Conversations
- Creating a flexible strategic plan utilized throughout all departments and by the entire team
Our courses will teach you to be less reactive and more proactive, along with proper strategic strategies, an innovative mindset, and a focus on solving those problems!
Do you have employees bringing personal issues to the workplace or employees taking the stress of work home with them?
Let us train your organization to balance work, home, and life.
One of the biggest aspects of our training that sets us apart from our competition is our 360² philosophy that incorporates work, home, and you into every single workshop.
In our book, The Complete Guide for Balance & Harmony Melinda reminds us:
To be fully productive and stress-free, each of our life components and the environments we maintain needs to be in harmony. Think of peace as an orderly arrangement of the parts of our lives that creates a whole pleasing to us. Balance is not about equality of time or effort expended on any one part of life, but rather about maintaining an arrangement where an excessive emphasis on one part does not create stress in another, leading to a discordant, unsatisfying, and stressful whole.
We often ignore difficult or painful areas or fall short of our real potential. Realize that our lives and the environments in which we work and live interconnect and affect the other. Life is always moving.There are an infinite number of obstacles to keep you from obtaining balance, hence the 360².
Learn how to address issues at work, home, and you while developing action plans to promote balance strategies that reduce stress.
The experts at Balance and Harmony 360² also create cost effective workshops to help you and your employees address these issues. If your staff is performing poorly so will your company.
Our workshops will teach these underlying skills as a solution to the previously mentioned challenges; applying strategic thinking, creating flexible plans, generating innovative ideas and solutions, challenge common thinking, build teamwork, and balance work and home.
If you are looking for additional assistance, we also reinforce training by developing individual coaching plans and curriculum for each trainee focusing on developing new approaches, techniques, and an actual cohesive training plan to move the person forward.
Businesses that have taken our courses are satisfied with their personalized outcome. We, at Balance and Harmony 360², are constantly evaluating ourselves and often ask companies to assess us. The evaluations we get back have high scores, particularly for having fun while implementing practical activities and interactions. One evaluation had written on the bottom, “Time well spent, could anyone do better?”
