We all know Kindness is a great thing. Perhaps the better question is, “What gets in the way?” A self-reflective and interactive keynote that focuses on closing the gap between beliefs and actions.
Engaging. Interactive. Relevant.
“As the keynote speaker for our conference, Houston Kraft brought an engaging and interactive session that had our participants involved with him and with each other. The emotion in the room was raw and real—and not just because the group was comprised of school counselors! Houston had a great balance of humor, intensity, excitement, compassion, and transparency that kept everyone immersed in the experience from beginning to end. I can’t recommend him enough for your event!”- Lesley Casarez, Ph.D., President of Texas School Counselors Association
