Richard’s Most Requested Speaking Programs

Joy and Empowerment in the Workplace - A Morale Booster
Create and Maintain Joy and Empowerment in the Workplace.

In this highly interactive and experiential session, your employees will be immediately engaged and shortly after will be singing and dancing with Joy. We all have an IQ and we all have an EQ (Emotional Quotient ) In this session, attendees will discover their JQ ( Joy Quotient ) by completing a Joy Quotient Assessment. The JQ Assessment is comprised of forty aspects of Joy. To give you a glimpse of the Assessment, # 6 states “I am readily able to receive” and # 39 states “I take 100% responsibility for my life.” If you would like, the JQ Assessment can be customized for your company. Discovering one’s JQ is fun, insightful, thought provoking and a very powerful tool assisting one on their road to self-mastery. Some of the expected results of attending this session are:

- Higher productivity
- Better time management
- Better relationships
- Higher levels of energy
- Better stress management
- Increased team spirit
- More effective communication

“Mr. Richard Fabozzi presented JOY in the Work Place for our Annual All Employee In-service. Mr. Fabozzi was entertaining as well as enlightening. He truly brought ‘JOY’ into the room with him. He involved everyone in the room and was very energetic and enthusiastic. By the time his presentation was over, the room was very much alive and left many of us wishing he would continue.”
Cynthia Lee, Director, Food & Nutritional Services
Plano Independent School District

Recession-Proof Stress Management
How to Manage Stress Rather Than Being A Victim of It.

Most people cannot give an accurate definition of stress. In this hands-on session, we will discuss what stress really is and isn’t. Attendees will learn how to cope with energy vampires and also explore and experience several stress management tools and techniques; such as incorporating music, proper breathing, laughter therapy, stress busters and relaxation exercises into their lives. Attendees will leave destressed and feeling more equipped to manage stress.

Creative Problem Solving As A Team - A Team Builder
How to make your team experience an atmosphere of achievement, inclusiveness, enthusiasm, encouragement and fun while being part of the solution.

Your team chooses a particular situation /problem in your company/department, etc. that it would like to improve or solve.The process learned to accomplish this is simple, logical, easy and effective. In the end, your group will have decided the best idea - thus, eliminating the usual burden most managers place on themselves to be the finder and the implementer of the solution. The group will be more enthusiastic to implement the proposed solutions because it was their idea. Not an idea that was imposed on them by you.

Developing Laser Focus
How to Be A Master Developer of Laser Focus.

Ever hear yourself say, “I lost my focus?” Did you really lose your focus or just relocate your concentration from one thing to another? In this highly interactive and experiential session, we explore and discuss the meaning of “Laser Focus” and how we allow all kinds of distractions to derail us from achieving our goals. To give a glimpse of the session, one of the nine characteristics of laser focus is, “Do you have total clarity about your vision?” If you don’t have total clarity about your vision or don’t have a vision, how do you know what to focus on? And one of the six ways to develop laser focus is “Eliminating people, situations and habits that are not supporting you and your goals.” You will leave this session with a stronger sense of clarity and a deeper level of self-understanding.

Self-Esteem is The Core of Success
How to Master Your Hub of Self-Love

Dr. Nathaniel Branden, the guru of self-esteem, says there is virtually no aspect of business activity that is not significantly affected by the level of one’s self-esteem. Self-esteem is experiencing our self as being capable and worthy. In this highly interactive and experiential session, we will discuss ten characteristics of high self-esteem and learn fifteen ways to develop high self-esteem. We will also complete a worthiness quotient assessment and a capability quotient assessment and these two exercises will reveal profound insight into ourselves.

My Acronym For "Cancer" Got Me Thru My Throat Cancer Crisis and Can Get You Thru Virtually Any Crisis
How To Stay Cool, Calm and Centered In The Midst of A Crisis.

This program swings back and forth from authentic joy to authentic serious to authentic introspection. It is highly inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking and, at times, entertaining.

“You got members of our normally conservative audience up, out of their chairs, singing, dancing, up on–stage and even on TV, no less! People who I know that are usually reserved from the limelight were jumping up to be part of the fun. I have never received so many after-show comments as we had with your presentation on “Joy in the Workplace.”
Stephen M. Booher, Senior Training Specialist
City of Irving, Tx

“I heard people laugh. I saw them get involved (much more than I have seen at any other meeting). I heard them share with each other how much fun and ‘Joy’ you brought. You had everyone in the room up and moving with your stimulating and interactive exercises. Thank you for the ‘Joy’ you gave Dallas ASTD!”
Pauline Shirley, Past President
Dallas ASTD

This is the result of one of Richard's phonegrams (singing telegrams):

Zig Ziglar said that he and his wife, Jean, were honored and pleased when Richard called and sang to her on Mother's Day. She enjoyed it so much she asked Richard to sing to her a second time. This time she put him on speakerphone so Zig and the whole family could enjoy it. And indeed they did!
