Celebrate What's Right With The World by Dewitt Jones
One of the most inspiring training videos to change attitude, raise morale, build a positive work culture, support emotional intelligence and creativity at work, and more.
Celebrate What's Right With The World teaches what a powerful force having a vision of possibilities can be for you. Do you have a vision for your organization? More importantly, do you have one for yourself? One that gets you excited every morning and keeps you open to possibilities. In this new video Dewitt Jones asks do we choose to see possibilities? Do we really believe they're there? He assures us that we will see it only when we believe it. And when we believe it, we connect with a vision that opens us to possibilities and gives us the courage to soar.
Celebrate What's Right With The World provides practical guidelines for applying the seven key concepts, even in the face of critics and challenges. Stunning photography and powerful dialogue also help us see how we can approach our lives with celebration, confidence and grace. Dewitt Jones is one of America's top professional photographers. In his twenty-year career with National Geographic, Dewitt lived the vision of "celebrating what's right with the world." He found that the creative tools he employed as a photographer had an even deeper application when applied directly to his personal and professional life.
Each program comes complete with a comprehensive leader's guide, participant workbook, PowerPoint presentation CD-ROM, and pocket reminder cards.
Seven Key Concepts:
Believe it and you'll see it.
Look for possibilities.
Unleash your energy to fix what's wrong.
Ride the changes.
Take yourself to your edge.
Be your best for the world.

Walk Awhile In My Shoes
"….we can meet in the middle and walk the rest of the way together."
From top management to shop floors, all people share the same basic need to be heard, understood, and appreciated. The destructive polarization of the hidden emotion "us vs. them" all too frequently results from the failure to realize our human interdependence and ability to find the common ground. We've learned that understanding and empathy - the cornerstones of trust-based, successful organizational cultures - lead to improved relationships between employees and managers. And, at work as in life, improved relationships lead to greater success.
Walk Awhile in My Shoes is a two-part workshop:
Part One: 20 Minute DVD which addresses the subjects of Change, Recognition and How You Perceive Me, Performance Problems, No Win Situations, The Joys of the Job, The Future, and What I Ask of You.
Part Two: Workshop Experience structured by the activity-based Leader's Guide which introduces the Seven Keys to Meeting in the Middle.
Key Objectives:To develop an awareness and appreciation for differing perspectives on divisive and emotionally charged issues at work…and in life;
To break down “us versus them” barriers that commonly exist in organizations; To identify the common ground between managers and employees using Seven Keys to “meeting in the middle”; To learn key skills and behaviors for building relationships and environments based on empathy and understanding
Length: 20 Minutes
Package Includes: DVD, Facilitator’s Guide on CD-ROM, and the book Walk Awhile in my Shoes.

This animated program will help viewers deal with negativity faster, more effectively, and with a lot less discouragement and despair.
- The Land of NO is everywhere.
- We can't avoid negative people. We must learn how to deal with them.
- People who are always negative are not bad people. It's just easier and safer to say NO.
- Not all NOs are created equal. We must understand why someone is saying NO if we hope to turn that NO into a YES.
- Helping others find a way to say YES means helping them understand what's in it for them.
- Sometimes the Land of NO is internal. Sometimes people give up before they try to find YES.
- Attitude is everything. Attitude is what makes the difference between people who are successful and those who never even try.
- Success in life is often not a function of talent, intelligence, or education but a function of determination, perseverance, and willingness to hang in there for what you really want.
- Finding YES in the Land of NO is not something you have to do alone. Teaming up with like-minded others increases your likelihood of success.

Building Employee Morale - Missed Opportunities
Building Employee Morale is a segment from the 1 on 1: Informal Employee Performance Review program. The video suggests a solution to the problem of employees feeling as if they've received a poor score when they've been rated as "Meeting Performance Standards."
· Beware of the undercurrent of disappointment flowing FROM management when a team or person does not exceed job standards.
· Employees who are meeting job standards should be praised for doing so.
· Don't be unimpressed by employees who are receiving JUST a Meets Job Standards rating on evaluations.
· If a Meets Job Standards rating is not an impressive accomplishment, your job standards need to be re-evaluated
