The following educational tools from Springboard Training are available for purchase individually, in bulk order, or as packages included with programs presented to your organization or event.

Listed are the retail individual prices. Please “Contact Us” to inquire about and discuss discounts for bulk orders and program packages. We can also arrange to have special inserts or packaging of your brand for special events and organization-wide distribution.

Power Learning Series: Real World Human Resource Strategies that Work
Featuring Sylvia Henderson: “Turning Managers into Leaders”
Insight Publishing. Paperback (PB). 6” x 9”.
ISBN #1-932863-00-1

“I read your chapter and it was so wonderful. It was packed with valuable information; very thorough. I was really impressed. You covered a lot of areas with practical tips, advice, and examples with resources and recommendations…everyone in business should read this book!” – B. Pianezza, Editor – HR.com

Imagine being in a round-table forum with twelve successful men and women, gleaning from them the human resource principles that propelled them in business. Real World Human Resource Strategies that Work allows you to do just that.

In this book Sylvia tells you how to identify the people in your organization who are candidates for management and supervisory positions. You will learn how to turn those with formal management titles into respected leaders within and beyond their areas of responsibility.

Sylvia Henderson co-authored this book with men and women from a variety of professions and life circumstances to offer time-tested, real-world HR strategies for improving your organization and helping you get to the top. These are not people who deal in conjecture, philosophies, or hypotheses. These dynamic leaders provide proven techniques to revolutionize your life.

Why You Talk So White?: Eliminate the Behaviors that Sabotage Your Success
Sylvia Henderson
V-Twin Press. Paperback (PB). 6” x 9”.
ISBN #1-932197-00-1

(Back cover text) This is a “success” book that is short on fluff and theory. Instead, it is full of pointed commentary with concrete advice.

Sylvia Henderson offers guidance on how you can achieve your own personally defined success in life, based on her life experiences. Her words are sure to anger some of you. For most, however, the words between these covers are the direct “ah ha’s” and focus needed to stop stumbling and start moving towards the success that you seek in life. If you are serious about moving forward from where you now stand in your life; if you are tired of the success and self-help books that offer fluff and advice with little meaning to your real life, then you need to read – and heed – the words in Why You Talk So White?

While seeming to focus on a singular demographic, this book is for anyone living a “life in the trenches” today – self-proclaimed “real people”. As you struggle for a missing “something” that is concrete enough to help you move forward with your life, look no further until you read this book.

In Why You Talk So White? you’ll discover:

  • Why “talkin’ White” is what you need to do to succeed, and ways in which to do so.
  • The effects of negative messages and attitudes and how to use positive words to create good impressions.
  • Ways to be on time, foster teamwork, and adopt a strong work ethic.
  • You will receive concrete tools to encourage and help you to succeed.

This book brings success language to reality.
