Wallace Wilkins, Ph.D. – Scontrino-Powell, Inc

Consultant Wallace Wilkins


Optimal development for individuals, teams and organizations calls for a two-pronged strategy:

  1. Increase the constructive workplace attributes of productivity, resilience, positive communication and collegial relationships.
  2. Reduce or eliminate the negative, workplace attributes of stress, anger, conflict, perfectionism, procrastination, worry and bullying.

People boost their success substantially when they master their inner dialog. With guidance and practice, you can abandon that harsh, inner critic and strengthen your supportive, inner mentor. Apply it toward yourself and others. You can create a low-stress, low-conflict, high-achievement workplace.
