What are the best ways to develop these core abilities? What does it take to discard an old behavior and replace it with a new one? Why is it so hard? There is a time in the process called the “Crunch Point.” Meredith Bell, President of Performance Support Systems, a software company in Newport News, Virginia, and her partners have created a powerful online personal development system called ProStar Coach, and she will explain how you too can Go from Good to Great in Business and at Home.
