ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING (4 hours)
Creating and maintaining a healthy attitude is imperative to the success of an individual as well as an entire organization. A positive environment can increase productivity and improve morale, quality, customer satisfaction, etc. However, at any given time, there can be individuals or groups of individuals who delight in depositing their negativity here and there. If not detected and eliminated quickly, this attitude can spread throughout the organization with alarming speed. This program will provide participants with the tools to recognize when there is an attitude problem and the steps necessary to correct it.
