What Carole Kornsweig has to say about herself:
"Over the years, my extensive background with individuals with communication challenges has taught me that there is no such thing as one technique that works for any given objective. Flexibility, judgment and liberal use of the “stand on your head if that works” philosophy have served me well.
Expanding her scope of practice to the world of business
"In time, I came to realize that individuals without pathology, still had very real difficulties achieving their professional or personal goals when their speech clarity or ability to express themselves was inadequate. I further learned that organizations such as corporations, educational, clerical and medical institutions suffered significantly when their professionals did not communicate effectively.
She succeeds when YOU succeed
"I draw on strong analytical and problem-solving skills and putting adult learning theory into practice. My ability to shape the speech sounds of English, understand the speech and voice mechanism, and know the forces behind communication are the elements that make my programs work.
The human factor
But my box of tools would not be complete without knowledge that human beings require support. Proper feedback, as well as interesting and relevant strategies, are essential to helping an individual meet the often-considerable challenge in making changes in general, and in making changes to speech patterns in particular."
