The March meeting was virtual, with guest speaker John Thalheimer on “how to communicate so others take action, drawing from his recent book, The Truth About Selling,” according to Guests joined in from New Jersey to Missouri on the virtual call, and everywhere in between. “Taking things virtual has been a blessing in many ways,” says Julie Brinker, communications coordinator for the Nashville RCC chapter, “we’re able to connect with people all over with ease, and we have no intention of stopping that.”

Thalheimer is an award-winning management consultant, speaker, and author, and has helped hundreds of businesses and thousands of professionals transform their potential into extraordinary performance. “The secret is in learning the ability to make the right behavioral decision in the moment to reach the desired outcomes,” he says. He works with executives, managers, and coworkers to help them reach their full potential.
