Who we are

 

Since 1982, J. Bert Freeman has been facilitating, coaching, lecturing and instructing organizations and individuals in performance potential, communication skills, leadership consistency and diversity. As a result of co-creating a youth leadership program at the University of N. C. at Wilmington in the mid-1980s, J. Bert Freeman led the development of a learning performance survey for youth and adult participants. Survey results showed him the need for more positive communication in everyday experiences. Thus, he created the skills of Verbal POSITIVE APPROACH™ and founded T.A.L.K. Associates in 1987. He is currently the CEO. In the early 1990’s, Verbal POSITIVE APPROACH evolved into Consistent Positive Direction, yet a higher dimension of human interaction. Consistent Positive Direction is described as speaking, writing, learning and impacting reality in the direction of the outcomes or successes that are required or desired. He is the author of Taking Charge of Your Positive Direction, Your Positive Direction NOW, Maximizing Workplace Respect (EBook), and The Organizational ESP Performance Development Manual. As a positive direction speaker, he has fascinated audiences and organizations by showing them how to use the intensity, persuasiveness, wisdom and versatility of Consistent Positive Direction in everything they do.

What we do

J. Bert Freeman and T.A.L.K. Associates provide organizations and individuals the learning and development support necessary to successfully master positive direction in: a) communication skills, b) organizational unity of effort, c) workplace respect, d) multilevel leadership consistency, e) team excellence and/or f) personal and professional relationships. Our customers can immediately use the one dimension that connects everything – direction.

Our work is designed for organizations and teams to immediately align everyone’s relationships, performance and morale (the human activity) in the direction of the customer, client or student. We call it ESP (Everybody on the Same Page with Excellence on the Same Page). We also support smaller businesses and entrepreneurs to align themselves in the direction of the customers of their customers. We emphasize direction and continuous improvement in relationships, performance and morale (forward movement and continuous improvement).

Our learning and development services provide individuals and groups skills, approaches and practices that they can use immediately for positive direction to be consistent and genuine in their professional and personal lives. People always seek improvement in the human activity of their lives. Many seek relief, better performance, better experiences, better balance, better relationships or all of the above. Each of those is a positive direction for someone.

We make it easy for organizations, teams and individuals at all levels, to measurably increase the unity and positive direction of relationships, performance and morale, in the workplace and beyond. We identify your direction of excellence. Then we tailor the best learning and development combinations to meet the demands and opportunities of your 21st Century. It is an investment that works because you use it.

T.A.L.K. Associates focuses on the satisfaction of our customers and the customers of our customers.
