Presentation Outline

Drawing upon a vast set of skills to increase optimism and real-world examples I will customize a program to fit your needs and format. Here are some examples of the skills covered:

Practice Extreme Gratitude: Gratitude is a powerful enabler that empowers the individual, teams and organizations to want to do more and do it well.

Positive Storytelling: Learning how to modify the stories well tell to be positive and optimistic creates more optimism in the workplace and among teams.  

Under-react: This skill will help you eliminate drama from the workplace and from your life.  Learn why “freaking-out” kills positivity and learn how to under-react to urgent and difficult situations.

Dealing with Jerks!: Learn a simple three-step process that will diffuse any tough or difficult situation and learn how to deal with difficult people.  

The Power of Silence: Silence can be your friend and when used appropriately can help maintain positivity.   

Re-define failure to mean success: Mistakes are inevitable and learning how to redefine failure to find what is learned or what could be done differently can be motivating and encouraging.  

Everything happens for a reason: Learn how to turn misfortune in to fortune.

Don’t throw people under the bus: How to overcome the temptation to criticize, demean or gossip. Throwing people under the bus creates negativity that can be eliminated.   

Finding meaning in life experiences: How to look at what has happened to you in a positive light so that it brings power and confidence.

Manage expectations: Learn how to keep high expectations and not get disappointed when expectations are not met.

And much more…..                                                                       

This session is dynamic, engaging and memorable. Attendees leave the program with real skills they can implement immediately and experience a dramatic increase of positivity and the ability to create optimism and practice it on a daily basis.
