Attitude Adjustment: Getting Rid of Stinkn’ Thinkn’

Getting rid of stinkin’ thinkin’

It is said that Attitude Is Everything, and it‟s the truth. While a person may have the skills or knowledge to perform a task or do a job, it does not mean that they will have the desire (attitude) to do so energetically, passionately or even correctly.

A good attitude leads to a desire to perform well, enjoy work, and do good for others. Whereas skills grow and competence remains once learned, attitudes change over time depending on the person‟s life circumstances, emotions, perceptions and beliefs. So if there is a desire to change or improve an attitude we must begin with a look inside the person: what are they thinking, believing, and feeling about others, themselves, and their work.

This ½ day session takes participants on a journey within and offers them inner understanding, as well as providing them with information about how attitudes are formed, sustained and how they can change. This is valuable information for people wanting to grow themselves personally and professionally, and influence others, creating a positive work environment.
