Emotions: Our feelings are real but not always true.
Responsibililty in managing our behavior, emotions and responses will help us to achieve our dreams. Controlled emotions can be used to add a lot of value to our lives. Uncontrolled emotions can also bring a great deal of pain to people's lives and needs to be addressed. Join Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder for this values adventure.
Criticism: Learn from it and grow.
Constructive criticism can be a useful tool to help us bring correction to important areas of our lives. It can be a difference maker and should be viewed as an opportunity for growth. If you are giving criticism, give it when you have another person's best interests at heart. Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder offer valuable insight as they explore this value.
Transparency: Be the same on the outside as you are inside.
When we are transparent we express ourselves honestly. This means people do not hear one thing from us and see something different. We have no hidden agenda. Because people trust our motives, we can positively influence and help them. Join trainers Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder as they reveal the truths of transparency.
Preparation: It can be the difference between winning and losing.
There are many different ways in which we can prepare, but they all have one thing in common—they require time and commitment. The bigger the opportunity, the more preparation time that s required. The better prepared we are, the more efficient and excellence we will perform. Some opportunities are once in a lifetime, and when they are gone, they may never return. Be prepared. Join trainers Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder to learn more about how to be prepared for the opportunities that come your way.
Ownership: Create the life you desire.
The value of ownership is both internal (personal) and external. Personal ownership involves taking responsibility for our attitudes, actions and reactions. It is the realization that the only person who really controls how I feel or what I do is me. Join trainers Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder as they unpack this value and its benefits.
Restraint: A quick response can ruin everything!
One of the biggest challenges regarding restraint is remembering we do not have to communicate everything that comes to our minds. The tone, expression and attitude with which we convey our thoughts speaks volumes and has tremendous impact on the listener. The right words, at the right time can breathe life and energy into a person like nothing else. Join trainers Mike Poulin and Dawn Yoder as they discuss this important value!
