15% of financial & career success can be attributed to
technical competence; 85% is due to good interpersonal skills!

How can you increase national pride, entrepreneurship, personal development, teamwork and leadership for your country?

The Freeman Institute Foundation is the non-profit arm of The Freeman Institute. The primary purpose of the foundation is to help provide the opportunity for world-class leadership development and educational seminar experiences for all -- regardless of age, race, class or religious affiliation --  who would be unable to afford Dr. Freeman's regular, general market fees for such training. Based upon the recommendation of Dr. Freeman and the board, The Freeman Institute Foundation will help subsidize a limited number (three) of seminar events each year for developing nations around the world. The Freeman Institute's signature seminar program is affectionately titled, "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®  (Check out the other programs mentioned below...)

Is this your seat?

   Dr. Freeman rarely facilitates open registration seminars, but when he has, the seminars typically attract many small business owners, non-profit leadership teams, government workers, family business owners, corporate leadership teams and others interested in experiencing how personal development can enhance family and business relationships. -- Email your request, with information about your nation and when/where you want to co-sponsor a seminar event.

   Basic Thesis:   We all are different. Some of us are thinkers, others are doers; some are passive, still others are aggressive. Most people come to work with pretty good intentions, but we get on each other’s nerves just by being ourselves. In the every-day stress of the work environment, the tiniest issues can escalate. And soon we are fighting about the way we are fighting, instead of dealing with the real issues. People do not respond to our intentions. They respond to our behavior.

   Studies show that 15% of one's career and financial success is dependent upon technical competence, while 85% of one's success is dependent upon interpersonal skills.

   Whether an individual flips hamburgers at a fast food restaurant or occupies a mid level position of a larger multinational company, Freeman's passion is to enhance the "promotability potential" of people of all ages, shapes, sizes and colors. In his seminars Dr. Freeman blends a sense of humor and personal vulnerability with sharp wit and practical concepts to reach a broad audience. His desire includes to help establish the kind of self-worth purpose that will help people become even more productive citizens.

How You Can Participate In This Project:


   The Question: Do you represent a developing/emerging country with the infrastructure set up to host a co-sponsored nation-wide open-registration seminar event with The Freeman Institute?

   This is a very workable program. Email us or call us (cell: 410.991.9718) for specific information on how these seminar events can benefit you and the emerging/current leaders of your country. The emphasis will be to encourage leaders to give back to your nation instead of being a part of the brain drain.

   Some nations have utilized The Freeman Institute seminars as training for their leadership teams -- as well as a unique event for the region at large. The Freeman

Institute Foundation is willing to help subsidize up to three seminar events each year designed for developing/emerging nations --  government workers, students, faculty, religious leaders and business people.

   As a prolific author (6 books in 28 foreign editions), professional speaker and world traveler, Dr. Freeman is a seasoned veteran. He is a seasoned veteran, having worked with people in many levels from many industries. Freeman has made himself available to facilitate such seminars, but he wants to make sure that each event is successful -- hosted at a venue large enough to make an impact upon the leaders of the country.

   At the seminar event Dr. Freeman will cast a wide net in terms of evocative content and practical application. The day long training event will be customized, so that everyone will walk away with practical, life-changing principles and values that they can begin to apply that very day.

Specialized  Program Ideas For Nations

All-Day or Half-Day Seminar Events

"Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!"®
The People Side of Life, Work and Family

"IGNITING (or re-igniting) Your Entrepreneurial Passion!"
If Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand

Freeman has a number of interests, but he especially loves working with developing/emerging nations, with a special emphasis seminar that is designed to help enhance leadership/personal development and teamwork.

    There are both inreach and outreach benefits for your nation:

  i. Staff/personal/leadership development for a nation. A certain number of senior government leaders can attend without charge.
  ii. Very real costs will have to be met (air and ground travel, workbooks, hotel, food, etc). We can be creative about all this, considering corporate sponsorship, barter for tickets and other win/win ideas. We will also consider a minimal charge for everyone else, with the development of a mutually-beneficial

percentage split on the per-person ticket price...a healthy percentage will go to an educational institution or health-care facility.
Perhaps a group of students from a regional business school/course can receive additional credit for developing and implementing the marketing plan for this specific event.

  vi. We also would like to give a block of tickets (in your country's name) to disadvantaged youth who want to succeed in life.

  vii. AN ALTERNATIVE IDEA: A few local corporations can sponsor the
          seminar event, giving Dr. Freeman his normal honorarium. Everyone
          attends the seminar for free.
