CONCURRENT SESSIONS: Eggs & Attitudes™
Thursday, October 25, 2018 | 10:45 a.m. – 12:00 noon
Friday, October 26, 2018 | 9:00 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.
Imagine an egg in its natural state. It is fragile, delicate, and can easily be cracked or broken. This egg is susceptible to outside forces such as you. It is the means to an end. You can do many things with it: fry it, scramble it, or make an omelet; soft- or hard- boil it.
Your attitude is like an egg. It is fragile and delicate. It can easily be broken by a poor self-image or become hard and cold. It can become scrambled when you don’t know what you are doing or fried when someone really upsets you. Like the egg, your attitude is susceptible to outside forces such as family, co-workers, supervisors, and society.
Attitudes are an important basis for our health, relationships, and performance. If you don’t take care of your attitude, someone may fry it or break it. Your attitude can greatly affect your work and productivity; if you’re busy feeling hurt, angry, or put down, you cannot do your job. So be sure to guard your attitude!
This topic is from Office Dynamics’ flagship training program for administrative professionals, the Star Achievement Series®. As a Certified Star Achievement Trainer, Nancy Nordberg will walk you through a thought-provoking and very fun session where you will learn:
- Attitude is a conscious choice – one that can be changed for the better at any time.
- How to confront and manage attitudes in the face of challenging people and situations.
- Find out why “motivation is an inside job” – and how to switch from negative to positive thinking patterns.
- Use attitude-improving techniques to reduce mistakes, frustration, stress and costly rework.
You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.
