When things go wrong, Marion Grobb Finkelstein calls it, The Finkelstein Factor™ .

Inspired by the innate coping skills of her husband, Steve, and through a combination of survival instinct and sheer desperation, Marion developed the Flip It Formula, a series of steps to shift your mindset and grab something positive out of every negative event. Having lived through broken dreams, health challenges, and bully bosses, Marion is no stranger to adversity and shares surefire ways to reclaim your enthusiasm, confidence, and ability to move forward.

In her conversational tone, Marion translates real-life stories into learning lessons and actionable steps that will help you rebound from personal or workplace challenges. She shares these approaches and workplace communication strategies with thousands through online videos, live presentations at association conferences, and corporate in-house training sessions. and through her book, “THE FINKELSTEIN FACTOR: What to do when things go wrong … because you know they will (sigh)”. And now, through this program, she shares her most recent systems with you.
