Create A Optimistic Culture
Friday, February 14, 2020
Social scientists have discovered that employees who are optimistic are happier, more productivity, and most importantly, are healthier and live longer. But creating optimistic employees is not just about positive thinking and positive self-talk or unbridled confidence. Rather psychologists have discovered that the main difference is your attributional style, which is how you explain events determines if you are optimistic or pessimistic.
In this seminar, Dr. Gregg Steinberg will show you how to:
- Quickly recognize optimistic vs pessimistic dialogue and thinking
- Empower staff by showing them how to think more optimistically
- Be more optimistic as well as how to coach others to be more optimistic using the scientifically-based TUF strategy system
TUF stands for Temporary, Unique and Flexible. When individuals explain failure with those terms, they believe success is around the corner, and as a result, are more motivated, have greater persistence, and less anxiety.
