Course Overview

Optimists see the path while pessimists see the obstacle. When faced with a challenge, optimists look for opportunities. Negative thinkers just shrug their shoulders and quip, "I knew that was going to happen." This program is for any organization facing challenges and change.

At this program's conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify behaviors that create a negative environment.
  • Describe how to break habits that contribute to negativity.
