Soft skills and communication skills are among the top leadership competencies organizations are seeking to develop within their workforce going into 2023. Over his 44-years as an executive in the Hospitality industry with Marriott International, Roy has worked with many bosses and thousands of coworkers. He has witnessed every level and type of workplace behavior, and created development programs that increased workforce engagement and reduced turnover by over 65%. Today that method is called PAFU (People are F*cked Up). Roy literally wrote the book on how to manage detrimental workplace behavior and wasn’t shy about it.

Each seminar or speaking engagement will cover Roy’s trademarked PAFU behavior and how to recognize, address, and correct annoying behaviors.
