Change is a fact of life. Job changes, promotions, single parenting, aging parents — today’s common stresses at work and home may leave you feeling helpless, angry, or depressed. You can’t always control change, but you can control your response to it. Stress is a natural part of your personal and work life. Some aspects of it are positive in that the conditions leading to stress often get you to take action when you might not otherwise. However, stress itself may lead to or contribute to a number of problems that make your life more difficult both at home and in the work place.

Some of the messages are stimulating and encouraging, while others may be stifling and discouraging. In this program, we will teach you how to channel the power within to create the results you desire and give you peace of mind.

Are you working with, serving, or even living with someone who has a bad attitude? Like the cliché “One bad apple spoils the whole bunch”, one person with a bad attitude can have a negative impact on the entire team! Just being around someone who complains, whines, or just doesn’t do or say anything can cause people to feel frustrated, angry, or even helpless. In fact, studies show that 68% of people (employees and customers) quit or leave a company because of one employee’s bad attitude. Bad attitudes in the workplace can deteriorate morale, lower productivity, and increase costs. It doesn’t take much for a co-worker, manager, or customer to feel the negative effects from someone with a bad attitude.
