Professional speaker, author and executive life coach Kim Giles, named by Good Morning America in 2010 as one of the top 20 advice gurus in the country, is bringing fun human behavior training to Moab this week – “the most fun you can have becoming a better person,” Giles said in a news release this week.

The board and staff of the Housing Authority of Southeastern Utah and Grand County are hosting the training and invite Moab area employers to participate in the three-hour seminar called “Human Behavior 101: Dealing with Difficult People.” The seminar was presented on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 17 and will again be offered Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19 at 8:30 a.m. at the Moab Valley Inn, 711 S. Main St., in Moab.

The cost for the seminar is $25 per non-county employee, and may be paid by cash or check at the door. Checks should be made payable to Claritypoint Coaching. As part of the training, Giles offers a free, confidential Personal Fear Assessment, available online at To reserve a spot for the seminar call 435-259-1342 with name of organization and number of attendees by day.

The training is designed to provide individuals a better understanding of human behavior so as to eliminate office drama, lessen annoying behavior, manage difficult people, and gain clarity about the human race, according to the news release from Grand County.

Giles has appeared on local and national TV and radio programs, sharing her unique insights about life and relationships. The program brings together her most popular, and life-changing, lessons on life and people, according to the news release. Giles also writes a column for and appears regularly on KSL-TV.

Giles is also donating a fourth seminar as a fundraiser for the Canyonlands Care Center. That seminar is open to the general public and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Canyonlands Care Center, Moab’s only long-term care center, according to the news release.
