We ENCOURAAGE you to bring your Staff, Superintendent & Business Manager to this event. 
(They do not need to be MASMS members.)

In It Takes 4 To Tango, Candy has two meanings when it comes to her ”4″.The first meaning... she will take you through her 4 C’s of Leadership which are the importance of Confidence, Communication, Creativity and Change in the workplace, the second meaning… you will go on a brilliant exploration of personality styles that will make you think, laugh, even dance…and recognize your true self and others.
International Speaker, Author, and former NFL Cheerleader, Candy Whirley is well known for leading and cheering audiences around the world to live and work better together.

The program will be delivered with the whole brain in mind.  It is designed and delivered in a balanced, participant-based learning style, for which Candy is well known.

This is NOT the Myers Briggs Personality Indicator, this is NOT the DISC test or even True Colors. This is an open and honest way for all the personalities to hear from one another about how to communicate better with each other and how to better motivate each other. People leave understanding how to treat people like THEY want to be treated and recognize that people are not difficult, they are just different.
