For Interior Designers
BUSINESS COACH QUALITY CEUS
Angela is a unique leading subject matter expert in the field because her sole focus is guiding interior designers to achieve their greatest creative potential and balance between running a successful business and experiencing a rich life. She elevates designers’ success in three ways; private coaching exclusively interior designers, speaking at interior design events and developing that content into online courses.
After thousands of hours coaching designers on barriers to their success, Angela deeply understands the key issues across all levels of designers, and knows the solutions that work for her clients. It is that information that becomes the continuing education course. In every course, you get a breakdown of the issues and practical proven ideas to solve them.
Course content centers on topics not taught in design school like how to have a difficult conversation with clients and employees, how to strengthen the value of interior design services perceived by your clients and topics that help designers create businesses structures and processes that meet their unique working style – not just from a book or other designers.

THE ART OF STRENGTHENING THE VALUE OF YOUR DESIGN SERVICES (.1 CEU/HSW)

Angela shares specific verbiage to re-educate clients and highlights “red flags” so that you know exactly how to handle it early on.

DESIGNING FOR LONGEVITY, HEALTH & HAPPINESS – PART I (.2 CEU/HSW)
Imagine residential and commercial spaces designed explicitly toward living longer happier lives.
Interior designers and architects have a huge influence on the longevity of people’s lives – for all ages. Today, Americans spend 93% of their time indoors – more than any time in history. We know that 80% of longevity is dictated by lifestyle and environment.
This advanced level CEU is uniquely presented because it leads with the question; how can this space be designed to extend life, promote health, happiness, prevent disease and even heal existing illnesses – for people of all ages. This conversation goes way beyond “Universal Design”. It approaches design with emphasis on stimulating and supporting restoration by focusing on 8 areas that science has proven that promote longer healthier lives. Restoration, prevention, motivation and elimination of illness is a lot to ask of our spaces, but it can be done.
- Design spaces that significantly extend life and the quality of living for the safety and welfare of the public.
- Grasp the 8 areas that science credits the greatest regenerative affects to the human body.
- Isolate technologies that damage the human body and shorten life span.

PLAY YOUR GENIUS OUT
Playing your genius out is about nurturing, cultivating and expanding your greatest brilliance and applying that “knowing” to every situation in your business. That expression serves as an invitation to join you by people who have been seeking what you were born to give. The challenge is that creative entrepreneurs also have a business to run and developing a balance between the two priorities becomes a lifelong battle.
This highly interactive inspirational discussion gives you the tools to constantly nurture and cultivate your brilliance through your client work. We cover areas that hold you back and tips to get back on track.
Understand the importance of the relationship between constant creative exploration, knowledge of design elements and the success of your client aspirations.
Acquire techniques to delegate energy draining business functions.
Experience a shift in thinking about how to run your business.

THE COURAGE TO LEAD INTERIOR DESIGN INTO A NEW ERA
Starbucks did it. Apple did it. Zappos did it too; took a common everyday product, turned it upside down, looked with fresh eyes, and then launched a new product that was an experience, a statement, a way of life. These leaders created the insight, tools and courage to take common products and change the face of the world. Interior design is primed and ready for the same transformation. Do you have the courage to lead this revolution? I challenge you!
Together, we will embark on a journey; an experience that will inspire you, fire you up, open your eyes and hearts, and equip you with the right tools to confidently shift the interior design paradigm in yourself and in others. We will have fun, interact and blossom a new paradigm that aligns you with the resources to return to your work with a blueprint to solve the practicalities of your business step by step leading your business, and the industry, into a new era.

THE ART OF DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS: STRATEGIES FOR HIGH END RELATIONSHIPS
Mastering difficult conversations is an art that can be achieved by anyone with the right tools. High-end clients ‘choose’ professionals who make life easier; especially in handling adversarial conversations. Research confirms there is a direct correlation between your ability to handle difficult situations with confidence and ease to the type of clients (and projects) you attract. This is a powerful interactive session packed with proven tools and a demonstration. You will discover:
- A deeper understanding of the impact of non-verbal communication.
- Unintentional behaviors that “turn off” high-end clients.
- Verbiage that defuses conflict for any type of conversation; angry clients, dispute of charges, non-payment, vendor disagreements.
- Three strategies that strengthen relationships (and attract high-end clients).
