Do You Sizzle or Fizzle? A Recipe for Leadership Country Style

Many believe the road to success belongs to the individual that can make the bottom line boom. This is simply not true. Growing organizations realize that to get to the top floor of success requires you to take the stairs. The future belongs to the listeners, the communicators, and those passionate and dedicated leaders who not only have an enormous amount of energy, but who can energize those around them. This program is designed to help leaders:

• Are you a master communicator? SOFTen your communications with others.

Expect the Unexpected
• Be alert to unforeseen circumstances.

Admire Those Around Them
• Use the untapped wealth of your most important resource-people.

Be Determined
• Never give up. Millions have failed because they quit only moments before a major breakthrough.

Embrace Change
• The only constant in today's society. Learn how to discover and use this valuable tool.

Be Resourceful
• Looking inside at the person you want to be-a Leader. Leadership in any occupation means staying on top and being profitable into the next decade and beyond.

The Power of TEAM

Could your organization benefit from a program that would redefine service, leadership, diversity, cultural mergers, communications, and system breakdowns? Does the idea of a presentation that explains the dynamics and mechanics of teaming in a common sense fashion appeal to you and your coworkers? What if you could have all this in a light and lively program with a healthy mix of laughter and energy? Sound impossible? Too good to be true? Well, it's not! Dr. Dale Henry dismantles the teaming process enabling your team members to understand how to:

• Establish continuity through group diversity
• Construct teams that deliver "Just In Time" Customer Service
• Build a leadership mentality among all its members
• Enable the strength of the individual to contribute to the strength of the team
• Co-ordinate and incorporate new ideas from outside sources
• Just flat out understand why we can get along with some and can't get along with others

Dale's unique presentation style has allowed him to capture the essence of teaming and transfer it to the heart of individual members. From conference rooms to banquet rooms, Dr. Dale's message of excellence and team co-ordination hits the target every time!

The Power of Humor
Glad to the Bone: Stress is only skin deep, but glad runs all the way to the bone!

Maybe as a small child you can remember your Dad stopping at the local gas station and saying, "Fill'er up and check the oil!" In our stressful world, we need to stop occasionally and get filled up with some anti-stressing fun and have our minds' mental oil checked. On average, we take better care of our cars than we do ourselves. In "Glad to the Bone," Dr. Henry gives us some maintenance tips on the five R's of good mental health:

• RELAX: Do a little daily upkeep. It's a lot less expensive than a complete overhaul.
• RECESS: Stop and go driving is tough. Pull it over to the side of the road and spend a little time playing and having fun.
• RESERVE: Check your fluid levels. Take the time to take care of yourself and spend more time with those you love.
• RECOGNIZE: A good map will help you get to where you want to go. Reflect on your past and plan for your future.
• RELEASE: Don't drive with your parking brake on. Build a friendship with someone you can trust to help you with daily stress maintenance.

Dr. Henry has helped hundreds of thousands of people to stop and recapture the joy of laughter. Philosopher, writer, humorist, trainer, and speaker, Dr. Dale understands how to frame common sense philosophy into solid applicable skills. Now, sit back, and get you funny bone all limbered up as Dr. Henry helps us become Glad to the Bone!

Sailing The Winds of Change on The Seven C's

Centuries ago when cartographers were rendering maps of the explored world, there was always the unknown. These unexplored lands were always areas of mystery. In the margins of their work-where no one had ever gone-the mapmakers would write, "Beyond this lies dragons!" This simple act set into place a negative mindset that was to be duplicated throughout history. Simply put, "Change is bad, known is good." During this program, Dr. Dale Henry will examine the seven obstacles that control our fear of change and the unknown.

This course is designed to aid the participant to move effectively work in an environment of change and transition by:

1. Challenging us to explore emerging markets of opportunity.
2. Coping with customer diversity.
3. Calibrating outdated service delivery systems.
4. Creating positive energy in leadership.
5. Communicating more effectively.
6. Cycling your environment from negative to positive.

Commissioning and empowering work teams.
If You Want NO SHOES and NO SHIRT, Then Give NO SERVICE!

Have you ever had a problem staring you right in the face until your eyes crossed? Have you ever wondered why organizations can't deliver better customer service to those they serve? Well, it's simple. Organizations don't deliver service. People do. In this empowering workshop, Dr. Dale Henry will explore how to learn from your mistakes, the real value of service, the hidden power of "one," and service's real role in business success.

The “ER” Factor When Business Is Down, UP YOURS!

The hospitality industry all over the world has found itself scrambling since 9/11. Serving to our full potential will always be an issue for those who excel in tourism. During the sports season, athletes become champions with great performances. However, the season did not make them great—the off season did. During this session, you will learn how to increase you skill set so that when that winning season comes, your team will be ready!

If At First You Don’t Succeed Well - Bless Your Heart

We all make choices as to how we deal with people. If given the option, we want our associates to be happy- optimistic - problem solvers with everyone they meet. Right! So why is it that the number one problem in customer service, leadership, and teaming is so difficult to analyze? It is because of the large chasm between what we do and what we want others to do. In this humorous view of teaming we will explore:

The Leaders role is setting the proper tone in business.
Attitudes that can be transmitted through everyday interaction.
Helpful hints in improving business relationships.
The how-to of value.
Positive changes that can bring about successful customer service.

Ethics: Why “Good Enough” Never Is…

Ethics Training for Organizations

In The Day America Told The Truth: What Americans Really Believe About Everything, the following attitudes about work were uncovered: *People spend more than 20% of their time at work goofing off. *50% call in sick when they are not. *15% of workers drink on the job. *Only 30% say they are loyal to their job/employer. *Only 20% of workers say they give their best on the job. *50% believe to get ahead, you must cheat or lie. An organization’s overall success and economic prosperity depend upon trust. A trusting relationship must exist among the employees and extend to the consumers of its services and products. This program provides the necessary ethics training to raise the awareness of employees concerning their responsibilities to one another, the public, and consumers. This program focuses on the necessity of taking the road less traveled.

The Goals of “Good Enough” Never Is...

Recognition of ethical problems, dilemmas, and competing values.
Development of skills needed to resolve these problems and dilemmas and to choose among competing values.
Incorporation of ethical decision-making into job skills.
Enhancement of the ethical climate in organizational culture through a heightened sense of responsibility.

This program achieves these goals through enabling attendees to have:

Respect for other persons, especially co-workers and customers.
Fiduciary responsibilities to clients.
Trust as the foundation of all customer and client relations.
Development of an internalized set of values.
Ethics in the culture of the organization.
The obligation to provide effective supervision.
The relation between law and ethics.
Honesty as a foundation of decision-making.
