She will help you master valuable strategies for improving attention and long-term memory which you can use immediately to meet everyday challenges and become more productive.
Enhancing Emotional Intelligence
Emotions influence the way people act and react in the workplace. Developing skills in emotional intelligence helps employees communicate more effectively, manage stress, build stronger relationships, and achieve career and personal goals. As a result of participating in this workshop employees will develop an understanding of how the brain processes emotions and will acquire strategies to increase their emotional intelligence.
Maximize Performance and Productivity
A primary concern of today’s workforce is maintaining brain health, and current neuroscience research informs us about the behaviors that impact this. The demands of our work can be overwhelming, in part due to distractions caused by technology and a continuous influx of information. During this workshop employees will participate in activities to explore how the brain works and learn ways to stay focused and engaged. Employees will acquire practical strategies for improving attention and long-term memory which they can use to work more effectively and achieve objectives.
Linda is an engaging and interactive speaker. She showed great insight and provided real-word strategies, that can be applied immediately, to provide better service to our patrons and improve how we work with each other.

It isn’t easy to maintain the attention of 35 experienced psychotherapists who have “heard it all.” Dr. Sasser succeeded with flying colors! Interesting, informative, clinically relevant and entertaining, I would highly recommend her workshop on memory for the lay person and professional alike.
– Glenn Weiss LCSW, CADC, President, Arbor Counseling Center
Oftentimes, speakers that talk on more dense topics are rather dry, but Linda makes her presentation about the brain fun and engaging. She is an excellent presenter for staff days and really helps kick our brains into action!
