    "Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think." -- British Statesman, Benjamin Disraeli


    Our thoughts are a major reason we fail to get desired results. Yet, few individuals know how to improve the functioning of their most important asset -- their self-talk. They never learned the long known techniques from psychology and Buddhism that improve thought and individual performance.

    Module Description:

    Every time someone speaks in a group setting they are playing a role. These communication roles don’t last long -- from a minimum of a couple of seconds to a maximum of a couple of minutes. Yet these “microroles” greatly impact group effectiveness by determining how well the group handles information. In fact, these verbal patterns determine whether individuals even understand what’s going on.

    Outcomes include:

    • Understanding how to play the role

    • Playing the 10 task roles that insure the job gets done.

    • How to play 6 relationship roles to build bonds between individuals

    • Recognizing and controlling the 10 self-oriented roles that disrupt groups

    • Identifying four personality types that produce dysfunctional behavior.

    This is for managers, supervisor's, and service professionals such as health care professionals, accountants, trainers, and consultants.

    "The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority." -- Ken Blanchard



    Many managers and executives depend too much on their authority -- a limited source of power that doesn’t work well on peers and the boss. Consequently, they fail to get the results they want.

    Additionally, many individuals rely too much on positional influence, rather than developing personal influence. Positional influence is typically limited and constrained, but personal influence is something that can be grown and expanded. Another fact limiting influence, is that many tend to act selfishly like dragons hoarding their gold; rather than socially, like philanthropists who spread the wealth of their influence to benefit others.

    This class expands your knowledge by providing practical influence techniques.  You learn about:

    How to project EXPERTISE.


    Ways one can use developmental COACHING.

        This is the basis for McClelland's Acquired Needs.   He only focused on three where should learn more about:

        • The need for power,
        • The need for affiliation, and
        • The need for achievement.

        These are powerful enough that they will drive your choice of careers and ultimately influence the degree of success you have in the world. But we see people using their jobs as a means of satisfying these needs in the world to work. Discover more about these three very important needs in video one.

        The remaining three videos will tell you more about each of these needs -- needs that you see operating in the real world.

        Video 2: Need ForAffiliation  (Understanding The Nature of Affiliation) (Time: 5:50)

        To the chagrin of the economists and the ire of the CFOs, people don't exist just to pump out as much work that they can to satisfy the greed of the stockholders. They also use work to satisfy social needs—their need for affiliation.

        Of course, some are low on the affiliation scale and they like nothing better than to be left alone. This is sometimes referred to as having a high need for autonomy. However,  those who are high on affiliation needs will choose jobs and careers but have lots of people around.

        People charge them up. People get them motivated. It's all about having friends.

        Need for affiliation is one of the most important of all the needs we possess. There is no more psychologically damaging punishment than to isolate someone from others. It’s important to understand this need since it drives choice of careers and whether you are happy doing what you are doing.

        Video 3: The Need For Power (All About Power: Why You and Others Find is so Seductive) (Time: 33.40)

        What is it about power? Those that have it want more. And those who don't have it, want it. Having power makes many people feel good. And so they spend their life continually seeking more of it.

        You might call power seductive, you might call this need self-reinforcing;  you might hate it, or you my love it but you can never ignore it. Some people believe that to really understand bureaucratic organizations, you must discover how those higher up in the dominance hierarchy exercise power.

        Honestly, most people have a distaste, a revolution toward power. Until that is, you get some. They one finds out that you really like it. Not just like it, but really want more. Power is not inherently bad, it is not essentially good, it all depends on how you choose to exercise it.

        Video 4: The Need For Achievement (Time: 36:50)

        It has long been known that one of the most important learned needs you can develop is achievement motivation. Not only is it associated with success as an entrepreneur, it is also a major component of emotional intelligence

        Achievers drive themselves to greater levels of accomplishment. Find out more about what it is and discover six techniques that you can use to influence his development for the thought, the prior to the development of money there is the drive to achieve. This presentation covers foundation techniques to increase this type of motivational force.
