Carlyn Saltman Coaching is sought out by business professionals when they realize that how they come across is a greater factor in their success than their education or who they know. Just think about how often the way someone expresses him or herself determines how you react, how much support you're inclined to offer, or how well a negotiation or job interview goes. This is exactly why Carlyn researched and developed a method for busy people to quickly boost interpersonal and presentation skills. Called Video Mirror Feedback®, this method saves time and money by creating lasting changes in a fraction of the time required by other methods. Video Mirror Feedback® shows you your strengths and gives you a non-threatening way to practice the communication changes you need to make. Video Mirror Feedback® has been especially effective for • managers who want a more engaging, wholehearted presence, but aren't sure where to start • sales and customer service reps who need to polish their rapport-building skills • leaders who want to turn around communication habits that may be sabotaging their messages • family members who want to get along but keep ending up in conflict.
The greater self-command that results from Video Mirror Feedback® empowers you to contribute to a more productive and harmonious workplace. Key qualities of this short-term coaching method are non-judgment, confidentiality, curiosity, empathy, humor, and creativity. Carlyn's expertise as a Relational Communication Coach is rooted in instincts refined during 25 years as a documentary interviewer and training in several schools of coaching. FBC members and sponsors are welcome to set up a complimentary phone consultation.

Paul and Elizabeth's Natural Food Restaurant If you’re at all familiar with Northampton, chances are you know Paul and Elizabeth’s, a vegetarian and seafood mainstay in its thirty-first year named for owners and founders Paul and Elizabeth Sustick. The eatery is located in Thornes Market, an indie-style shopping mall in an old department store in the heart of Northampton’s Main Street shopping district. The mall has creaky floors and relatively narrow hallways (there are no engineer-designed paths of least resistance conceived to herd shoppers along the most lucrative route). Paul and Elizabeth’s isn’t exactly small, but it feels intimate despite lofty ceilings. Floor-to-top windows let in sunlight and a panoramic view of Old South Street broken here and there with panels of stained glass. Quilts and tapestries hang from the walls, along with nineteenth-century photographs of Native Americans. Almost every surface—floor, woodwork, walls, tabletops—is tinted a diffusely reflective honey. Waitstaff dress in casual gray aprons and black Oxford shirts. “Even though we’ve been here for thirty-one years, we’re still kind of underground,” says Paul. “People forget we’re here.” But maybe it’s not that they forget; maybe it’s just that they’re surprised each time they rediscover P and E’s. It’s such a warm, unassuming place, simple, clean and well balanced, that it might go unnoticed; boastful and flashy are not words that seem to fit into the natural foods aesthetic. But customers keep finding this restaurant, and the fresh, tasty, healthy, affordable food that is always waiting for them. (more)
