Practical Applications

Power Director
A tool I have found very useful in both training co-workers and helping our clientele understand new services we are offering is “Power Director.” Rather than sending out lengthy emails, I have been using “Power Director” to create easy-to-follow, step-by-step tutorials. This has been more effective in getting the message across, and people find videos easier to follow than written text.

Quotes
One app I have found to be a great resource is called “Quotes.” I love quotes and use them often to emphasize topic points in a training presentation or to help with storytelling as well as inspiration to start conversations. It’s a quick reference to find a picture quote on any topic and includes several options. It’s quick, simple and free.
Rita B. Allen, president of Rita B. Allen Associates

YogaGlo
I am a huge fan of “YogaGlo,” an inexpensive phone app with literally thousands of video-based yoga and meditation classes. It’s a great way to fit in some exercise on the road, flexibly and on my schedule. But what I appreciate even more are the mediation classes — searchable by teacher, topic and time available. It’s a great way to start the day, destress, get ready for an important presentation or unwind in the evening.
