Wallace Wilkins serves as leadership coach, personal counselor, conflict mediator, organizational consultant and professional speaker. His practical, solution-focused services bring benefits to individuals and organizations across public and private sectors.
Wally’s one-on-one coaching helps executives, managers and entrepreneurs take charge of their career advancement without unnecessary worry, procrastination or regret. New thinking strategies enable them to achieve outstanding goals without the demands of perfectionism. By maintaining can-do attitudes and win/win relationships, you can enjoy greater success and satisfaction without distress, conflicts, anger or negativity.
As a clinical psychologist, Wally counsels adults with mood problems (depression, anxiety, anger), substance use (alcohol, tobacco, drugs, food), stress, behavior problems, impulse control, relationships and self-esteem. Clients develop insight, understanding and action steps to change their lives. They learn how to alter self-limiting behaviors, enhance self-image, improve confidence and advance their skills to deal with life’s challenges.
Wally serves as mediator to resolve workplace conflicts—even long-standing disputes. As Senior Consultant and Master Trainer for the Resolution Resource Center, he also conducts on-site training programs. His workshops show managers how to mediate conflicts among their employees—and how to improve their own relationships. You can address conflicts early, resolve them effectively and prevent their recurrence.
Organizational Consultant to Management
Wally shows how organizations can implement specific strategies to increase employee productivity and decrease workplace negativity. By examining and modifying organizational structures and operations, you can prevent conflicts, minimize stress and reduce the risk of financial losses—losses that occur when negativity and unresolved conflicts escalate into expensive grievances, disciplinary actions, healthcare costs, litigation or violence. Wally consults with you about your sensitive personnel issues.
Professional Speaker/Seminar Facilitator
Wally’s practical, uplifting keynotes and skillshops are designed to enhance moods, relationships and performance at work—particularly during periods of rapid change. He writes and speaks about powerful strategies for individuals and teams to create low-stress, low-conflict, high achievement. His practical, “how-to” programs are filled with insights and peppered with humor. You can tailor-make your employee development programs and your executive retreats.
Thanks for the detail. Like you, I was able to successfully add an event using the Events tab on the Mainpage. We've used it all the time. Unlike you, having set myself up with a test account as a new member, I was also able to do create an event using the welcome message you mention and following the same steps. So I'm sorry, but I just can't replicate the problem.
Sometimes that happens. For now, we'll chalk it up to gremlins, and I'm pleased you were able to create your event despite the problems.
The links and text of the welcome message are part of the Ning platform that are probably beyond the abilities of us non-techy-volunteer-network administrators to change. But we'll certainly watch for this and whether it happens again - maybe we can replicate it and find out what's happening. And if it does, we'll see if Ning will fix the problem for us.
Wally, welcome to your WSBA ADR network!

Do let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in the section or on this website that would make it more valuable to you in your practice.
