Stop Workplace Drama:
A Message of Personal & Professional Empowerment

Marlene Chism

President and CEO, Marlene Chism Inc.


Join Marlene Chism, author of Stop Workplace Drama as she shares her journey of personal transformation and career reinvention while offering a new language, practical application, and fascinating imagery to illustrate the intimate connection between personal drama and workplace drama. Marlene is a living example of how to become the creative force in your own life by applying principles presented in her book. While stopping drama is about identifying and eliminating obstacles, empowerment is about creating new possibilities.

What is Drama?

Drama is defined as any obstacle to your peace or prosperity. Lots of things can become obstacles to your peace--even the voice in your head that makes you doubt yourself, or the fight you had with your spouse, or the anxiety you feel about not having enough time.


How Drama Manifests

Drama in the workplace is often experienced as relationship problems between boss and employee, between employee and employee, or between staff and consumer. Drama in the workplace hampers productivity and manifests as absenteeism, turnover, apathy, poor customer service and low morale.

Message from Marlene

* What is missing in our world right now is the understanding that as long as we focus on solving problems, we lose sight of what is important: creating the life, career and workplace that we really want, and offering our unique gifts to the world.

* No matter what the challenge, it’s never about the situation, or the person. It's always about identifying and eliminating the patterns and the drama that keeps you stuck. If you can break old patterns you can create new worlds.
