BreakThroughs in Attitude™
Attitude affects Performance and Results. Too often, organizations rely on product knowledge and skills training to improve performance and increase productivity. Although both improve competency, neither addresses the real opportunity: connecting individuals with the power of their Attitude.
In a three-year Leadership IQ study released in 2014, researchers said that focusing on technical skills is a “formula for failure.” The study found, “a shockingly low percentage of new hires succeed in their new positions.” In fact, a remarkable 80% don’t stick around. The findings indicate that a good percentage of new hires fail “because their attitudes and personalities are unsuited to the functions and tasks of the job and conditions of the work environment.”
People with Can Do attitudes are comfortable in their own skin, know how to overcome obstacles and persevere, and find meaning with a deep sense of purpose in all they do. Bottom line, they know how, and want to, deliver outstanding results.
BreakThroughs in Attitude™ is a self?discovery program that encourages participants to search themselves (attitudes, beliefs, behaviors and characteristic ways of responding to situations and interacting with others), and connect who they are to powerfully influence what they do. By introducing and underscoring the importance of influence, control, and accountability, participants are challenged to evaluate their relationships with others, and themselves, and explore adopting empowering attitudes that bond their essence with their potential and help them achieve results they never believed were possible. By being proactive and interpreting events in ways that are positive, participants are given the tools required to continually evolve.
At the end of the program, Participants are given an opportunity, with our expert guidance, to break a board with their bare hand. The skills and mindset necessary to break a board can be immediately applied to their work and demonstrate that they actually Can Do the seemingly impossible.
