Personal Excellence

Most of us intuitively understand that the climate of one’s workplace has an impact on how people feel and on how they perform. In using the term climate, we refer to the collective atmosphere of a workplace: the attitudes, perceptions, and dynamics that affect how people perform on a daily basis.

A healthy corporate climate is proven to boost productivity. The elements of this include supportive management, contribution, self-expression, recognition, clarity and challenge.

In addition, employees must be given tools to manage their perceptions and emotional reactions so they become active creators of a healthier climate, not just victims of management whims. Creating a high performance culture — while giving employees practical tools for managing and leveraging their emotional and intellectual processes — represents a powerful parallel approach to regaining organizational vitality.

Change Mastery: How to Marshall the Forces of Change

The last great freedom of man is the freedom to choose his or her attitude under any given circumstances. We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control our attitude toward what happens to us; and in doing so, we will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master us. Change Mastery participants learn how to be creators of circumstance, not creatures of circumstance. The aim is to become change masters, to embrace change, to welcome change and to ride the tides of change.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict comes with the territory called managing. It is necessary and indispensable. Conflict is either destructive or constructive. It is constructive when it is functional; it is destructive when it is not channeled. Conflict is like energy or rushing water. Unless it is utilized for a purpose, it finds its own purpose. The task of management is to channel conflict, which is potentially a destructive force, into being constructive by developing and nurturing a climate of mutual respect and trust in an organization.

Success is a Journey

High performance individuals know that you can't hit a target that you can't see. We can't do wonderful things with our lives if we have no idea what they are. We must first become clear about what we want. We have to decide exactly what "success" means. We have to decide what our life would look like if we made it into a masterpiece. All great achievement begins with deciding what it is that we really want and then dedicating ourselves wholeheartedly to attaining it.
