One of the fun things that we get to do when we start a new year is we take some time to reflect on the past year. We ask ourselves a variety of questions: What programs have been most popular with our customers? What does it indicate about the workplace today and what managers and HR professionals are seeking? What are our customers telling us about the future?
A few years ago, many of our customers were looking for programs on change as they tried to navigate the slow economy. I think with the improving economy we've seen a shift towards programs that motivate and energize a workforce. Of course, customer service remains a popular topic for all organizations. We've also seen an increasing interest in programs that help organizations deal with the many generations who are in the workforce simultaneously.Here is a sampling of some of our most popular programs for 2012
The Happiness Advantage with Shawn Achor is our most popular program. Shawn Achor has taken his years of research in positive psychology to the world of work. In essence, his message is this: You can increase your performance and productivity by every measure with a positive mindset... and there are simple tools to help you improve your mindset. All of this will help your organization. If you'd like to preview this program, click here.
Fish and Fish for Leaders: The Fish Philosophy programs remains some of the bestselling programs worldwide. I think part of the reason for the popularity of these programs is that on the surface, a fish market seems an unlikely place to find fun, positivity, creativity, and excellence. But, when you watch the Fish programs, you see all of these ideas present at the Pike's Place Fish Market - and the lessons are truly universal. If you'd like to preview this program, click here.
Ben Zander's "Leadership: An Art of Possibility" and "Attitude: Radiating Possibility" remain very popular. Benjamin Zander is the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and uses music to inspire people to be their best. If you'd like to preview this program, click here.
Morris Massey has a totally unique, funny, and irreverent way to communicate about generational differences. His programs have been popular for decades. If you'd like to preview this program, click here.
Sam Glenn Series: Sam Glenn is hysterical. He's an artist and motivational speaker. And his message about attitude, change and... well, lizards are very popular with our customers. If you'd like to preview this program, click here.
