Excerpt from Training Media Review’s Article on Life is good:
"The Life is Good message is easy to understand. It is echoed in every corner of the corporation. They know that optimism yields better quality products and knock-their-socks-off service. What else could they do with a name like “Life is Good”?
"It’s refreshing to see a company’s positive attitude turned inward as well as outward to customers. Too many hard-line managers growl at their staff to smile for customers. It never works! This goes hand in hand with a respectful, compassionate attitude toward everyone, not just the pets and star performers.
"This is not a turnkey program. Life is Good has had this philosophy from the founding of the company. This may be a hard sell for a well-established company and many employees. Fun and passion have to start with the leaders of the company modeling the behavior for the staff.
"The Life is Good behaviors, actions, and attitudes are applicable to every industry. You may need to inoculate management with the key messages to gain their buy-in and support before introducing this to all employees. Your staff may eye you suspiciously if you suddenly start encouraging them to have fun if management doesn’t model the behavior. Remember: you can’t mandate fun!"
