Meet Sylvia Lafair…
Sylvia Lafair PhD, co-founder and President of Creative Energy Options (CEOinc) and contributing author to Inc. Magazine, began her career in psychology to explore why people do what they do in personal relationships. That led her to advanced training in family therapy. She taught and supervised students at Hahnemann University and then began to research complimentary therapies along with family work. She and her husband, Herb Kaufman opened one of the most well respected personal growth centers in the Philadelphia area where they invited such luminaries as Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, and Bernie Siegel to lead training programs.Read More

“Sylvia takes a highly personalized approach to Leadership Development. She helps each person become more aware of their personal styles, their possible origins and raises behavior patterns to a conscious level. From awareness comes change. I found great value in applying these lessons both at work and home to successfully balance demanding jobs, motherhood and a two career marriage.”
Matthew EmmensRetired CEO & Chairman of Shire Pharmaceuticals, Retired CEO of Vertex Pharmaceuticals
“Sylvia’s consulting work is powerful. She teaches employees to look at situations from a holistic perspective rather than from a place of blaming. Conflicts can be settled quicker and that leaves more time for productivity and collaboration. I only wish I had known about how patterns from family show up at work when I began my career. Her book “Don’t Bring It to Work” is a must for leaders at every level.”
Tyler MathisenCo-anchor of CNBC’s “Power Lunch”, Vice President for Strategic Editorial Initiatives
“The concepts and strategies learned from Sylvia and Total Leadership Connections are invaluable. Working in a newsroom is competitive and stressful and with new understanding of how relationships trigger tension I resolve pressure situations faster and with minimal dissention. Moreover, I can bring the techniques and tools home; a double win.”
Stanford ThompsonFounder & Artistic Director - Play On, Philly!
"Working with CEOinc was exactly what I needed to pull my team together and save our organization from hitting a downward spiral that is way too common in the non-profit sector. Our team is humming at a pace I never thought possible, and we are able to serve our children and families in ways that drastically increase our impact."
Dr. Huifang LangSPEX Certiprep
“Our company has worked with CEO for many years with great success and I have completed their excellent leadership program that educates people in different and vital areas most programs do not cover. I has been amazingly helpful and I use what I have learned with my team everyday.”

I sat in silence listening to the stories of battered trucks driving down dirt roads and blowing up just a hairs breath from soldiers on duty. I heard about the pain, angst and often guilt that is part of physically fighting someone into submission or fear being killed.
The vets all said, in their own way, “war is hell.”
While I know our soldiers have risked life and limb to keep us safe, I was sitting in a room and listening to the war stories that brought the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Gulf War, and Viet Nam, more deeply into my own safe and simple world.read more
I have not been to China for over a decade and coming here now was a bit of a shock. Tall buildings everywhere, cars replacing the myriad of bicycles that clogged the streets of Beijing on my last trip. Young people laughing and flirting. Parents caring for their coveted only child. Children who are well behaved and curious.
I loved saying “ni hao” (pronounced “knee how”) for hello, as the little ones would stare at my blue eyes and curly blondish hair, hide behind parents and then peek out again to figure out what was the same and what was different about this stranger.read more
