Dr. Bill Crawford, Ph.D., to Present Keynote Address at Glass TEXpo™ 2010
December 14, 2009
Dr. Bill Crawford, Ph.D., will present the keynote address and one additional
seminar at Glass TEXpo 2010, the bi-annual regional glass
industry trade show for the auto and flat glass industry to be held
April 14 - 16 at the El Tropicano Holiday Inn Riverwalk in San Antonio.
Dr. Crawford's presentation is sponsored by JLM Wholesale.
Dr. Crawford will present the keynote address on Thursday, April
15. His speech is titled "Moving from Surviving to Thriving:
How to Bring More Clarity, Confidence, and Creativity to Your Business
and Your Life!" Everyone has heard the statistics-75 percent
of business owners and managers today describe their lives as "very
stressful." Frustration and burnout are common and almost everyone
predicts it's going to get worse before it gets better. And even
though everyone is experiencing more stress than ever, they are
also tired of traditional "stress management" and people
giving them simplistic answers to life's complex problems. In the
April 15 session, Dr. Crawford will address this problem by first
giving us new information about why this level of stress and frustration
is so prevalent, and then, using humor, common language and common
sense, he will offer a step-by-step system for accessing the clarity,
confidence and creativity necessary for success in today's world.
Dr. Crawford will also present on Friday, April 16, "Getting
Others to Get It! - How to Ensure That What You Say Is Heard and
Acted Upon." Ever tried to communicate important information
to someone, only to have him or her become resistant, defensive,
and/or argumentative? As a manager or business owner, this can be
a big problem, because either you spend way too much time trying
to convince them of the value of your perspective, or you just get
into a debate around "who's right?" In "Getting Others
to Get It," Dr. Crawford goes way beyond "good communication
skills" by showing participants what is really happening when
others are being resistant and why just continuing to give them
data doesn't work. Finally, he will show attendees how to motivate
others to not only hear what they are saying as valuable information
but also take more responsibility for acting on these suggestions.
In addition to holding a doctorate in psychology from the University
of Houston, Dr. Crawford is a licensed psychologist, author of four
books and an organizational consultant. Over the last 25 years he
has created more than 3,200 presentations for such organizations
as Sprint, Shell, JPMorgan/Chase, PBS and many other organizations
and professional associations nationwide. He has a unique perspective
on life,which he shares with such humor and energy that he is constantly
referred to as the "Steve Martin" of corporate America.
In addition, his two PBS specials have been seen by more than 15
million people and he has been quoted as an expert in such diverse
publications as The New York Times and Entrepreneur
magazine, just to name a few.
Now in its tenth year, Glass TEXpo is back in San Antonio
on April 14-16, home of the Riverwalk. Glass TEXpo will provide
