Winners Never Always Quit

In today’s world, we tend to work in our business more than we work on the business.  The result is an out-of-balance tendency to miss opportunities to differentiate services provided in the past from those required for success today.

Winners Always Quit (based on a Cornerstone Leadership Institute workshop) provides participants with 7 simple and effective strategies for change in 3 professional and personal areas:
    1.    Proactively meeting the challenges facing funeral service
    2.    Focusing on the needs of today’s (and tomorrow’s) families
    3.    Taking care of the caregiver
