Attitude What is...daily living See Hear Think Do Feel Smell Sense Some how, it seems these are quickly becoming things of the past? I am 52 years old and was in the store the other day. After mowing the yard I was hot and sweaty, so I went to a local store for a cold drink. In addition, I saw a bottle of wine and decided to buy it. Got to the cashier and did not have any identification and she refused to sell me a bottle of wine. No big deal, but when you think about it, where are we, as a people, headed? Your reaction to any given situation, Attitude. No matter the situation, you always have certain thoughts about it. Let's take daily living. Attitude one: Ignore it? Attitude two: Roll with the flow? Attitude three: Be actively involved? Most of us have our hands full with day to day living. Ignoring, many opportunities, we do as little as possible to make our lives better. Strange but true, we will ignore, but we do not want to be ignored--double standard. To avoid additional responsibility, we "roll with the flow". Then, when serious stuff happens we do not have a clue. It is like we do not think bad stuff will happen to us, as an individual or a community, so we fail to prepare. Worse, we live like that. In an emergency, where do we go for food, water, shelter? Who maintains it? In regard to the above, today, we do very little for ourselves any more, leaving it up to the professionals. Whatever happened to the well rounded family, community...thinking folks? We all have feelings, we do not want to be ignored nor made to feel less than, so why would you do it to someone else. The nature of the business, huh? These attitudes and behaviors are very prevalent within our society, especially, with those of us with little to no income. Jobs are causing us to work under tremendous pressure and we keep making more rules increasing pressure. Who cares if life giving utilities are cut-off, you should have paid? In many of these cases, during the heat of battle, logic often goes out the window and fear or power steps in. Peace is what we are after but war is how we most often get it. I know there are situations when you have no choice, but I also know, many folk serving in these positions, often have very little self control or self-esteem; otherwise they would not serve in these positions. I mean you might as well install computers, what good is a human cashier when they work like machines? Customer service is all but non-existent. If this is the best we can do in a store, then you know our homes are hurting. Yes, crime is up but the questions are where and why? The answers are all over, inside and out, white and blue collar. The idea is not to kill more criminals but to create less of them. That has to be done through better daily living. Being actively involved? Change My Attitude What is Attitude? Attitude means one's mental position relative to something - a way of behaving or thinking. Used by itself, attitude commonly implies a negative mind set, as in "she has a bad attitude." A bad or negative attitude indicates a leaning toward negativism, either with regard to some topic, such as work, or to life in general.

Whether you consider yourself to have a good or bad attitude, this course will help you be more successful in your job and life. While we all know attitude affects a person’s behavior and their results, courses specifically designed to teach employees the skills they need to develop a positive attitude are not typically made available. That’s why we developed this attitude skills course. We call it attitude skills, but it is really about helping people discover new ways of thinking. The workshop is based on the assumption that everyone has an attitude. It might be positive or a negative attitude depending on someone else’s perspective. The real issue is training individuals how to use thinking processes that maximize their ability to succeed. We teach thinking processes that reflect in behaviors that insure success in business and life. Participants in this training learn how to reengineer their thought process to become more effective – even in the most challenging work environments. Taking responsibility for your own attitude is the first step to success. Most employers expect the manager to “fix” or “fire” the employee with a "bad attitude." In fact, there is little the manager can do to “fix” the employee’s attitude. The employee must “fix” their own attitude. At the same time the manager’s attitude must be right to create an environment allowing the employee to refocus their attitude for a more positive and productive work effort. If the manager or the employee lacks the skills to make adjustments to their thought processes – attitude change for a more productive effort will not take place. This seminar is not just a make you “feel good” for a day “rah-rah” session. Participants learn practical techniques and specific how-to’s they can use immediately to refocus and rethink their approach to work performance, the team, the boss, and their life.

Therefore, this training session is designed for all employees and managers at all levels of the organization. From sales and customer service personnel to administrative and frontline employees, this seminar will benefit everyone. The “Attitude Skills for Success” class benefits everyone.
