A Kick in the Attitude (An Attitude Re-Charge!)
Our attitude is a lot like a battery and sometimes it loses its positive charge. Sam not only puts that positive spark into everyone’s attitude, but shows how to maintain that positive spark in the midst of adversity and the things that drain us. Sam discusses how we make attitude a choice every day and that our attitude is either in the way or making a way and we determine which every day.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes people (audiences) get a little bit of an attitude when they find out there is going to be a speaker on attitude? Its ok, Sam loves when that happens. Sam has won over what many would consider the toughest audiences with up-lifting attitude recharge. By the time this session is over, everyone will have a new appraisal for the true value of attitude and how it pertains to life and work.
Sam’s simple philosophy is that it all starts with attitude: Success, Teamwork, Customer Service, Sales, Leadership, Personal/Professional Development, Winning, and Relationships.
This program is designed to rekindle your organization’s enthusiasm. More than just having a positive attitude, Sam discusses ways to put the right attitude into action and how doing so will achieve the best results. While we cannot control what goes on around us, we can control our perceptions, responses and actions, which ultimately form our attitude. In this side-splitting humorous program Sam shares his seven attitude lessons that will transform your organization.

PHR, Human Resources Manager
As every company will experience at some point, employees can “burnout”, and as Human Resources Manager at Lawler Wood Housing, I needed to find a way to motivate my group. I was fortunate to have seen Sam Glenn at a SHRM conference and knew right away that if anyone could “recharge” employee attitude, he was the one to do it.
“Sam was the best speaker I could have hoped for…..I absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a fun way to reinvest in their employees.”
“Sam was AWESOME!!!! I have had soooo many people compliment us on booking him! I think at one point he had our VP in tears laughing so hard!"
Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Florida
"Sam was absolutely wonderful! We've never had such wonderful feedback from everyone after a our conference like we did when Sam spoke! We are thrilled to use him again in the future!"
Arizona Multihousing Association
"How can I possibly thank you for being, by far and hands down not only the best speaker the AMA has ever had, but for most, the best speaker they have ever heard! Our members just LOVED Sam, the presentation was perfect, it was funny, heart-felt and honest. For me personally, since this was my first Trade Show with the AMA, and Sam was my choice there was a lot riding on his presentation, the members were either going to love everything or dislike me for changing the format. They opted for the "loved everything", and could not stop telling me and our Board of Directors how impactful his presentation was and how much they wanted to hire him to speak to their own companies. On another personal note, and I had seen the video online, but the painting portion with the LCD projector, the light and the way the painting comes to life is just phenomenal. This presentation surpassed my expectations times 100% (and I entered into it with high expectations). You also made me look so good to our members, another aspect I will always be grateful to you for. Michelle, I really appreciate how detailed you always were and how diligent with the communication. Sam, you were so considerate and professional I just cannot thank you enough! Thank you for the amazing presentation and amazing experience!!! I sincerely hope we have the chance to work together again!"
