Reality Check/Straight Talk

10


10 per session - Virtual OK

Sometimes you need somebody to tell you what they really think of something, no holds barred.

Particularly in work, family & relationships, many of us are conflict avoidant or are in high context cultural environments where no one is ever supposed to say what they really think directly.

I've seen this kind of frankness help people shift their reality in heart circles, recovery groups & other workshops.

I will do my best to be frank but gentle. And can help you try to come up with other solutions to your problem using strategic questioning & appreciative inquiry techniques.

If you need some straight talk about an urgent or intense topic from a disinterested party, give me a shout. Hopefully an outside perspective will give you a breath of fresh air and we can come up with some new avenues of transformation for you to explore and move forward.

Training & Qualifications


I was raised in a low context cultural environment which valued straight talk, honesty, and directness. I am the youngest child which made me a truth teller. I have supervised hundreds of employees in diverse contexts & sectors at multiple levels.

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
