The Breaking part: 

Breaking Bread is...

Kindness and mutual respect.

Acceptance and belonging. 

Understanding and supportive community.

The business friend you can call to celebrate a win 🙌 or hash out a challenge.

The friends who pop in for dinner with a bottle of wine 🍷- and not a care in the world about how tidy your place is. And you're cool with it.

When you’re breaking bread, you can relax and be yourself.

Stress can make that kind of connection near impossible.

That’s why, through the magical metaphor of this process, you’ll also discover:

  • What derails connection and communication (and what to do about it)
  • How to connect more clearly, more deeply, and more effectively with the people around you – no matter what the stress level.
  • How to share what you have learned in creative ways

"Gotta say, I impressed my damn self!  Shoutout to Nancy Hand and her Breaking Bread Experience! This was an awesome experience not only making and baking sourdough for the first time ever but also meeting, engaging and connecting with the other fabulous men and women who also signed up for this event"

AnnaMarie Kaminski

"Within the first hour we were all chatting like old friends. I LOVED the way Nancy wove together the sourdough with connection skills. I left with wonderful new friends and a gorgeous loaf of bread."

Karen Molan - Therapist, Tipperary, Ireland

The facts!

a.k.a why connection and communication are SO important for you as you grow your business!

$7.8 trillion dollars - worldwide cost of lost productivity due to unengaged or actively disengaged employees in 2022

$300 Billion dollars - amount US businesses lost to incivility (rudeness) in 2009 (um, probably a lot more now!)

57% of Americans who quit their jobs in 2021 did so because they felt disrespected at work. 

71% of Americans were willing to accept a pay cut for the right cultural fit.

76% of over 2000 survey respondents in 25 different industries reported experiencing incivility once a month or more 

When employees have been on the receiving end of incivility/rudeness/disrespect:

  • 48% intentionally decreased their work effort.
  • 38% intentionally decreased the quality of their work.
  • 80% lost work time worrying about the incident
  • 78% said that their commitment to the organization declined
  • 63% lost work time avoiding the offender
  • 25% admitted to taking their frustration out on customers 

Meet Nancy Hand

My communication expertise is based on over 35 years of real-world experience and formal training in contract law, mediation, dispute resolution, negotiation, and coaching as well as a passion for communication, learning, and behavior.

But it’s also rooted in my own culinary heritage as a south Louisiana daughter of a food scientist, a foodie (know thyself!), and sourdough baker.

Bread connects. Every culture in the world has a unique bread heritage they celebrate. Breaking Bread brings people together. 

No matter where you are in the world, sharing a meal is an act of community and peace. It's where people communicate, connect, relax, create, and celebrate.

That's what my Breaking Bread events are all about! All of that - and a drool worthy loaf? That's a good day!

🙌 Yes! I'm ready to "bake in" a culture of collaboration!
