How important do you think is it to get along with other people? Before you answer that, imagine growing up in a household that consisted of one mom, one dad, one grandparent, and 10 brothers and sisters -- and not enough bathrooms to go around. Sounds a bit challenging, doesn't it?
Well, that is exactly the environment that our featured speaker, Rita Craig, grew up in. It was in a household of 14 people that she learned her first lessons about getting along with people in spite of their differences, and how important teamwork and collaboration were if you wanted to get anything accomplished.
Building on that foundation, Rita went on to accomplish great things -- first as a Human Resources professional in the corporate world, and later as the founder and president of Top Tier Leadership, her own public speaking, business consulting and executive coaching firm, specializing in leadership training and equipping businesses to move into the future with the skills and confidence needed for success.
Rita's long list of achievements include numerous honors from various publications and Human Resouces associations, and gubernatorial appointments to serve on the Florida Commission for Human Resources and the Century Commission for a Sustainable Florida for Governors Bush and Crist. She is also a published author and recipient of the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award from the Human Resources Association of Palm Beach County.
With over four decades of experience under her belt, Rita is one of the nation's most respected authorities on leadership, collaboration, and team building, and the best news of all -- she actually makes it fun!
Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in extending a warm welcome to Rita B. Craig!
