His passion lies in helping his clients reencounter their unicability - which is where their passions and talents merge. A highly interactive and engaging speaker, Dr. Cherbosque's approach to training is geared toward four different but interrelated goals: seminar attendees will receive at least one practical idea that they can apply to their family and home life; one practical idea that they can apply to their work life; and one practical idea for their self development. The fourth goal is to create an environment of safety and joy because he believes that is how real learning best occurs.Dr. Cherbosque has been a keynote speaker and a workshop presenter in a myriad of international settings on a wide variety of compelling themes relating to the workplace, diversity issues, and marriage/family.
