Discover powerful skills to dramatically improve your ability to influence those you lead to greater results in their business and personal lives. This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and the skills to

  • Learn the skill of coaching to build better relationships with those you lead,
  • Coach others to success rather than tell them what to do, and
  • Empower others to sharpen their ability to solve problems and achieve results.

Maxwell Method of Sales

The Maxwell Sales Impact Report will add value to you whether you are new to selling or a seasoned sales veteran. This report provides a wide range of information, including your selling style and ways to maximize it. It also offers awareness of the various buying styles of your clients. In his best-selling book Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, John Maxwell shares that in order to connect with others, we must first understand one another. He also teaches that others must know, like, and trust us before we are allowed the opportunity to serve them. Truly successful salespeople build relationships with this process in mind. If you sell any product, service, or combination thereof, the Maxwell Method of Sales will guide you to impactful results. Join our 12-week boot camp or half-day workshop and watch your sales technique and confidence soar.

Yellow Ribbon Training

Yellow Ribbon is a suicide prevention program dedicated to preventing suicide and suicide attempts by making suicide prevention accessible to everyone and removing barriers to help. We offer four types of training:

  • Ask 4 Help! Elementary Program—Part of a children wellness curriculum, this program teaches children how to better understand their emotions and the emotions of others. It also teaches the vital skill of asking for help and that it’s OK to ask for help.
  • Ask 4 Help Suicide Prevention Training—A peer-based training for youth that empowers the participants to learn to use the vital life skill of asking for help. This training was developed to increase help-seeking behaviors and links between the participating peers and caring adults.
  • Be-A-Link! Suicide Prevention Program—A community-friendly, peer-based, nonclinical training for adults. This program teaches simple, effective tools for helping between those in need and the help resources (trusted adults). It emphasizes the important role parents, school personnel, and other trusted adults can play in helping at-risk young people. Also available for first responders (EMS or LEO) and faith leaders.
  • Training for Trainers Workshop—This two-day workshop is for high school youth and adults. It provides a Yellow Ribbon program review and an overview of the training materials, including Community Readiness Action Plans. This workshop empowers participants to begin Yellow Ribbon programs in their communities, workplaces, and schools. Those interested can also become Certified Trainers.

I have had the pleasure … to be in Kris Peterson's workshop "Discovering Your Potential in Life Transitions." I am 76 years old… It's never too late to refresh thinking and create new strategies, at any age!

—Diane H.

I have found that since I have begun taking part in the mastermind discussions with Brian, I have been more attuned to the nuances in my communications with others. …which I feel has improved relationships both at work and at home.


The Co-Op 513 benefited greatly from having Brian and Kris work with our leadership team. With their guidance, we were able to solidify our goals and action steps attached to those goals.


This stype of coaching has helped us take Foster CARE Closet from a struggling nonprofit to a more mature agency serving youth all across the state of Nebraska. I have personally found it to be a significant attribute in my growth as an executive director.

—Leigh Esau

Having worked in ministry for almost two decades, it often pains me to sit down to a coaching session with Kris. Only because I know she will ask the same questions I would ask those in my ministry. At the end of the day, it’s the questions that need to be asked to help me grow as a leader, and an individual.
