Sylvia Lafair, Ph.D. is President of Creative Energy Options, Inc. (CEO), a global consulting company that targets and transforms workplace patterns for success. Dr. Lafair's programs and executive coaching impact individuals and teams to decrease conflict and increase productivity. Her award winning book, “Don't Bring It to Work” 2009 (Jossey-Bass), is listed as one of the top 20 books for emerging leaders. Lafairs research shows that, much as we like to believe that our behavior is entirely rational and governed by our conscious mind, our thoughts and actions are often driven by the roles we learned in our families as children. And under pressure, we tend to revert to old patterns, often creating workplace drama that diverts attention from the business and undermines productivity. As a keynote speaker, workshop leader and webinar presenter, Sylvia engages audiences with her natural storytelling ability. She weaves her knowledge about personal relationships and business culture into easily understood messages, using both humor and suspense that leave audiences with information to take back to the office and immediately put into practice. Dr. Lafair has been quoted in Time.com, Fortune, Forbes, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal and has been a guest on various television and radio programs. Her new book, “GUTSY: How Women Leaders Make Change,” was released in June 2012. She is presently working on a book about diversity in the workplace titled “Different: How Dynamic Leaders Drive Diversity at Work”. As a noted authority on leadership, an award winning author, and executive coach, her message is unique and timely; her insights universal and relevant. Office drama and politics, human resource issues, absenteeism, and litigation often increase when stress is high in companies.
