Who’s Who in the Zoo? is a direct, fun, and easy tool for evaluating your personal working style and of those who work with you.

“In 2014, Sonepar USA decided to launch a Mentoring Program. We partnered with Paula. She designed a day-long program that received rave reviews. It was the perfect launch pad for getting all the mentee and mentor relationships off to a great start. The content was practical, had high impact and was extremely engaging. Paula is the master at using humor to make people laugh and feel comfortable. She facilitates in a way that participants discover their own key learnings without ever being a “talking head.” Her style engages people from the start and leaves them wanting more. Paula is so easy to work with and really cares about the company vision and goals. Having Paula facilitate the mentoring session really set the program apart!”

“Who’s Who in the Zoo was extremely enlightening and the fact people referenced themselves as the animals, was that much more effective. Paula hit a homerun! Once we worked through our zoological differences then collaboration picked up. The champions talked about your session the whole time!”

“Paula is a gifted and entertaining speaker and facilitator.  Her authentic and transparent style means that participants in her programs always come away with tangible and practical steps they can use right away in their everyday lives.  A true believer that learning should be fun, Paula’s stories and exercises make you laugh while demonstrating the truth behind the concepts she is presenting.  Participants in Paula’s programs often say, “I never had so much fun, while learning so much.”

“The program Who’s Who in the Zoo? was such a success that our employees have started explaining everything in terms of “Zoo” personalities. This in turn has increased communication among departments, as well as cooperation among employees. We are once again a unified team with a common goal. Everyone is on board today and talking about “The Team.” I cannot thank you enough for your patience and insight into breaking down the intangible barriers that existed only a few months ago.”
Bob Fagan, Former Vice President Sales
Club Med Sales, Inc.

“We are in the service business and providing our customers with what they need is the most important thing we can do. We were fortunate to have Paula Mulford present her Who’s Who in the Zoo? to our California employees. Paula is an energetic, entertaining speaker and provides a fun, easy approach to communicating more effectively with customers, co-workers, managers, family and friends. She made a tremendous impression on our employees, managers and partners and we have received sensational feedback from them. They were able to put what they learned from Paula into practice immediately, even before they left the seminar. We are continuing to hear great things from those who attended about how they have adjusted their communication style to better communicate with different people. Paula provides tools to make everyone a better communicator.”

“The impact of last week’s workshop is already visible in our office. I see our staff working together on “neighborhood” and “citywide” protocols, posting their animal stickers on their name plates, and brainstorming ways to make this space really work for us. We plan on creating or ordering signage for each person’s workstation to allow them to communicate if they are available for conversation or doing heads-down work, as we received feedback that this would be particularly helpful. It’s important to note that none of these things would have been set in motion if it were not for your inspiring workshop and straightforward tools!”
