Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation
Inspire success, engagement and perspective by being appreciative
Appreciation is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams. According to the latest research in the fields of positive psychology and strengths-based leadership, when individuals and teams put more attention on what is working and their strengths, instead of focusing on problems and perceived weaknesses, they thrive. Through this program, which is based on the key principles of his book Focus on the Good Stuff, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how appreciation impacts productivity, morale, and success.
Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: The Power of Authenticity
Create trust, confidence and team unity by being real
Authenticity is fundamental to relationships, communication, and success. Now more than ever, people, leaders, and teams must utilize the power of authenticity in order to build trust, resolve conflicts, and create cohesion. Some fascinating research in the field of emotional intelligence is proving that being real, honest, and even vulnerable are key elements to success and engagement. Through this program, which is based on the core principles of his book, Be Yourself, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how authenticity impacts relationships, trust, and productivity.
Nothing Changes Until You Do

Wherever we go in life, there we are. The one constant in the midst of all of the change, stress, and uncertainty we face in business and life is us.
