State Conference 2003 Overview
Men & Women at Work:
Strategies for the Total Team
Joseph L. Mancusi, Ph.D
Do men or women make better managers? How do men rate women managers? The answers may surprise you. Clinical psychologist and professional speaker Dr. Richard Mancusi cites a recent study that demonstrates that women managers are more effective in 28 of 31 management traits – and most of the raters were men! Both men and women can be equally successful at the same job. They achieve their success often by using different management styles. The key to team productivity is identifying the best management style for each individual.
A dynamic speaker with more than 1400 presentations to his credit, Dr. Mancusi has been featured on national news shows such as the NBC Today Show, and quoted by such publications as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times.

Amazing Face Reading
Mac Fulfer, J.D., lawyer turned face reader

Face Reading is a means to a deeper communication with every person you meet. Mac Fulfer takes this art/science out of the realm of the mysterious and into a hands-on method of learning.

Face reading demonstrates how reading the very structure of the face and its accompanying features reveals the thinking style of its owner. Face reading can also identify the problem-solving preferences, stress level, degree of openness, intimacy requirements and even the basic truthfulness of a person. Your face is a living record of your life and, like your personality, it is shaped by both inherited factors and your response to life experiences.

Whether selling, hiring, negotiating, speaking, or interacting, the ability to discern another's attitude and mind-set is a skill we all desperately need. Being a truly gifted communicator is not solely defined by mastery of a verbal style or well-rehearsed techniques; it also requires the ability to immediately read and acknowledge your audience. The availability of the face gives the reader an opportunity to accurately interpret and respond to every interaction. Learning to read faces will change your life forever. You will never look at people the same way again.

Mac Fulfer is a popular speaker and lecturer who gives presentations on face reading for national and international conferences. He customizes his presentation to the specific needs of the organization that he is speaking to, such as improving sales, jury selection, and better hiring interviews. He has spoken to companies and organizations that include American Airlines, the Kansas State Judicial Conference, Business Week Magazine, the International Meeting Planners, the National Association of Legal Administrators and the U.S. Postal Service.
