Star workshops are a high-end, high energy and fun program that teaches participants higher business concepts to give them the tools to intuitively self-actualize to become that right-hand you are looking for and needing every day in your business.
Star solidifies performance and teaches the how’s and why’s of a new way of processing work and life. Participants have ample time for skills assimilation, peer critiques and practice time in the classroom. Like a lab class, Star offers a safe environment to try out new behaviors and experiential learning concepts while reinforcing repeated exposure to correct behaviors, desired skills and higher level strategies to complement business objectives.
Star’s Creative Force – Joan Burge
The Star Achievement program was created and developed by Joan Burge, CEO and founder of Office Dynamics International. Known as the red lipstick wearing “Rock Star” of the administrative and executive assistant world, Joan has worked on both sides of the desk – she knows what HR business partners, corporate trainers, harried executives, marketing managers and lean organizations need – a dedicated, fulfilled business professional with the skills, behaviors, attributes, values and work ethic to achieve success.

Creator of Innovative Learning Activities
As a 20 year trainer and ASTD (American Society of Training Directors) member, Joan has a distinctive talent for engaging learners on a deep level through comprehensive programs, educational booklets and workbooks, blogs and e-zines. As one participant said, “Joan gets inside your head and heart and helps you change your perspective.” This is the outgrowth of her ability to engage people in the learning process and inspire behavior change. Innovative methods of teaching keep participants engaged while learning, eager for more.
The fundamental of adult learning is this: adults learn by doing, which causes the highest level of learning retention. Star capitalizes on this with a multifaceted live classroom training approach featuring individual, table and group activities, thoughtful questions for self-examination, pre- and post- class assignments, self-assessments, reading, discussion, team and table assignments and learning objectives, presented within an environment that is supportive, creative and energetic.
