The Power of a Positive Attitude
New AMACOM Book Gives Readers The Tools to Overcome the Negative and Achieve A Whole New Outlook—At Work and In Life
“An outstanding practical guide showing how positive attitude can positively influence and enhance your personal life and business career.”
— D. Quinn Mills, Professor, Harvard University
Attitude affects every facet of our lives—from the way we handle stress to how we communicate at work. The way we view difficulties and setbacks can make the difference between success and failure. If we analyze great achievements and the people who accomplish them, the most prominent quality they exhibit is a positive attitude. People with absolute faith that they will do what they set out to achieve are the most likely to succeed, even when others expect them fail.
As the president of Organizational Development Consultants, Roger Fritz has devoted his career to helping people overcome obstacles and achieve their goals by changing their outlook on life. As he states in THE POWER OF A POSITIVE ATTITUDE: Discovering the Key to Success (AMACOM 2008), “the first step to developing a positive attitude is to become aware of the true nature of your current attitude. This isn’t always as easy as it sounds, but how you react to various situations can reveal a great deal about your basic attitude.” Fritz shows readers how to develop a deeper understanding of the effects of their attitude and how it influences not only their performance but the results others achieve.
Readers can learn to succeed in business and discover:
• Strategies for coping with troublesome bosses.
• Profiles for determining which of their workmates are helping them and which are pulling them down.
• Advice on how to overcome their own negative attitudes.
• Guidelines for recognizing and emulating successful leaders.
• Tips for communicating in a way that will motivate others.
• Suggestions for helping employees work more effectively.
• Steps for dealing with conflict in a positive way.
• Insights for disagreeing without being disagreeable.
• Techniques for managing workplace stress and coping with burnout.
THE POWER OF A POSITIVE ATTITUDE gives readers an easy-to-use guide that’s both deeply inspiring and eminently practical. Life-affirming and authoritative, this is an invaluable book that will empower anyone to face life and work with joy and confidence.
