SMART Goals

Your mental attitude leaves a lasting and strong impression on other people

People form “impressions” of your personality based upon everything you SAY and DO.
Luckily, you can CONTROL everything you say and do. (Or at least you could).
Therefore, you can positively affect the way other people perceive your personality.
We will show you how to affect the way others perceive you, to become a mirror of what you WANT it to be.

Positive attitude includes focusing onto “the CAN-DO portion of the job”

In all situations, there are things that you cannot change; and there are things you can.
Many people waste time thinking about things they cannot change.
We will show you how to focus your attention only upon those things you CAN change.

Why you should strive to create positive images in the minds of other people

People always respond in accordance to their innermost thoughts.
And their thoughts respond to the words that they use and hear.

How to manage negative people and conflict situations in positive ways

Conflict is inevitable because people disagree.
Disagreement can be beneficial but only if we remain rational.
If we allow disagreements and conflicts to degenerate into an emotionalised war of words, then we all lose.
We will show you how to properly handle conflict, according to The Principles of Reason.

The importance of the Self-image and how people act according to it

As we grow up, we all develop a “self-image”, which is the sum of our innermost beliefs about “who we really are”.
Once you have developed your self-image, it controls every aspect of your behaviour.
You always act in accordance with your self-image.
We will show you how you can harness the power of a person’s self-image as a lever to change their behaviour.

Criticism

How to give a correction or a criticism in a constructive way

We must all learn to accept and act upon negative feedback.
Negative feedback is information that tells us that what we are doing is “off track” (i.e. Ineffective or wrong).
Negative feedback is vital information, but most people hate to hear it.
We will show you how to word your negative feedback message, so that the other person perceives it as valuable guidance, rather than an insult or a “telling off”.

Learn exactly what to say and what NOT to say

If you use language that is too assertive (or not assertive enough) then the other person will not respond well and instead they will become stubborn and refuse to change.
If you word you message correctly, you will eliminate negative responses and instead you will trigger an adaptive response.
We will show you how exactly how you can word your message so that you will trigger a more positive, adaptive response from your listener.

How to suggest positive solutions and gain their commitment

At work, you cannot FORCE people to agree with you.
You can only get what you want by gaining their agreement.
You must learn how to gain their willing commitment to make a change.
We will show you how you can best gain their willing commitment.

Remember to give appreciation thanks and praise

People come to work for more than just money.
Money is not the only motivator.
There are many social motivators, (i.e. intangible, emotional motivators)
Praise and appreciation are social motivators.
We will show you how important it is to properly praise, appreciate and thank others.

The course content was interesting, and I found it very useful and motivating. I have learnt a lot and feel confident about putting this into practise. Chris is a very good trainer, who kept my interest and attention throughout the course. Good use of personal anecdotes brought real life situations into the learning.
