The Difference You Make:

Each one of you has the power to positively impact those around you and truly make a difference. In truth, most professional individuals give so much of themselves, their talents and their resources to clients and coworkers that there is very little energy left to share with family and friends. By focusing on the difference you make on a consistent basis with everyone you encounter, you can fuel your own energy, maintain momentum, and enhance communication and relationships. In this session, you will learn specific skills that you can easily implement immediately. You will discover the opportunities that exist to take control of your life, renew your spirit and positively influence all the people you encounter at work, at home and beyond. The result is greater self satisfaction and living a more fulfilling and purposeful life. When you give so freely of yourself to others, you should be able to enjoy life to the fullest extent possible!

"Your program was certainly one of the more interesting and engaging that I've attended in a long time." Lynne Belanger

 

Yippee, It’s a New Day!®

An attitude contributes to success, productivity and happiness or it contributes to failure and despair. Developing a positive attitude leads to productive behavior. It's a word and subject that has become trite, but it is one of the most important aspects of our ability to achieve the level of success to which we aspire at work and at home. We own our attitude and have the power to control it. By doing so we navigate our future and take ownership of our behavior and the life we have. In this day and age, it is more challenging than ever to maintain a positive, productive and healthy attitude and behavior. The great news is that maintaining a positive and productive attitude and behavior can be achieved, regardless of circumstances. Do you want to replace negative energy with positive energy? Are you looking to enhance productivity, workplace culture and efficiencies, and have some fun? In today's competitive environment, companies and organizations are expected to do more with less; therefore it is more important than ever to educate and promote a positive and productive state of mind.

"Lee's sunny personality and quick smile made her an instant success with the DOL employees. After one of your presentations a co-worker stated that you were the 'best presenter we have ever had.' I was sad when we finished the last event because I knew I would miss your positive attitude. Many of us still begin our day as you taught us, with a great big "Yippee." Anne Harriman, Maine Department of Labor
