Check out these consultants, communicators and colleagues:
Stacy Hawkins Adams :: Stacy is a prolific writer, whose works include both fiction and nonfiction books and contributions to several anthologies. She recently released “Lead Me Home.”
Her nationally published women’s fiction novels entertain through plots filled with social issues, matters of faith, and true-to-life drama that nudges readers toward the personal growth many of her characters experience. Her faith-based nonfiction book gives women practical tips and inspiration on how to connect more deeply with God.
Peyton McCoy :: The significance of “Walk into Your Season” is that it ponders whether a cultural worker can renew the role of free spaces of empowerment to address power differentials utilizing key contributors such as the traditions and language of a culture; the cultural worker’s potential to facilitate action and transformation; and the intentional effort to make the hidden transcript of resistance public. By illustrating how free spaces are effective in discursive communities affected by the aftermath of historical dominance and still vulnerable to the ploys of power, “Walk into Your Season” illustrates cultural work in two different settings, one with a history of free spaces (Thirty First Street Baptist Church) and one without a history of free spaces (older youth transitioning from foster care in the Richmond Department of Social Services).
“God has a purpose and a plan for you. As long as you continue to allow “drama” to be a distraction, you will never live a fulfilling or rewarding life. This book is all about helping you to realize and live out your divine purpose by controlling the drama that so easily creates detours along the journey.” Val had to live it before she could write it!
Val Daye founded The Train Station because she knows exactly what it takes to develop and motivate individuals and high performing teams. She has experienced first hand the frustration over trying to improve team performance and fulfill staff development plans amidst competing priorities and stringent training budgets. As a result, The Train Station is committed to relieving that burden for corporate, non-profit, and faith-based clients.
Jackie Jones :: There are plenty of books that provide tips on becoming a more attractive job candidate, how to retool a resume or how to look the part for a sought-after position. What they don’t tell you, however, is how to be as sharp on the inside as you appear on the outside. In just one week (a chapter a day) – Taking Care of the Business of You – helps build the confidence needed to develop a solid career plan.
