Meet Sylvia Lafair…

Sylvia Lafair PhD, co-founder and President of Creative Energy Options (CEOinc) started 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…

Rave Reviews

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.

Nancy Singer

Pharmaceutical Sales, Marketing and Learning & Development Senior Executive, Merck & Co., Inc.

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.

Tyler Mathisen

Co-anchor of CNBC’s “Power Lunch”, Vice President for Strategic Editorial Initiatives

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.
