Rosalinda Oropeza Randall
She has been combating rude behavior and spreading civility for over a decade. She focuses on communication techniques, presence, and professional behavior helping individuals consider options to interact more effectively with a lot less drama, less potential for harassment, and without losing their individuality.
Rosalinda believes that in most cases we can direct a conversation for a more agreeable outcome.
By lending personality and humor, Rosalinda’s tactful, yet straightforward manner breaks down the perception that social skills and good manners are outdated or too formal.
Her common-sense based approach is coupled with a realistic perspective facing today’s ever-changing workplace dilemmas, especially harassment issues.
Along with continuous training, certifications, trend-watching, serving as a media source, and industry connections, it was her modest upbringing that prepared her best.
It did not include finger bowls or fine china. Her parents provided something much more important. She received a foundation of timeless character traits like respect, consideration, and tact, on which she bases her life and business model.
Her book, “Don’t Burp in the Boardroom. Handling Uncommonly Common Workplace Dilemmas” complements her signature straightforward style and humor.
Rosalinda believes that it’s how you make people feel when they’re around you that makes a difference–this can propel a person’s career as well as personal relationships.
When she isn’t speaking, she enjoys dancing, Tai Chi, improv classes, and working with formerly incarcerated women.
