Program Descriptions

Focus on the Good Stuff: The Power of Appreciation
Appreciation is one of the most powerful, yet overlooked, aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams. When individuals and organizations put more attention on what is working and on people’s inherent strengths, instead of focusing on “problems,” they thrive. Through this inspiring program, based on his bestselling book Focus on the Good Stuff, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how appreciation improves morale, productivity, and creates success.

Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken: The Power of Authenticity
Authenticity is critical to success in life and business these days! It is fundamental to trust, communication, and success. Now more than ever, individuals, teams, and organizations must utilize the power of authenticity in order to build trust, resolve conflicts, and create cohesion. Although it can be counter-intuitive and even scary, being real, honest, and vulnerable is a key element to individual and group success and fulfillment. This interactive program is filled with inspiration and practical help, all grounded in positive psychology and strengths-based principles.

The Keys to Creating a Championship Team
A “championship team” is a group of people who can effectively handle adversity, communicate authentically, trust each other, and appreciate one another effectively. Mike Robbins has been a part of and coached many championship teams. In this program, he teaches people the fundamental aspects of creating effective and successful teams that truly win.

Nothing Changes Until You Do
Wherever you go in life, there you are. The most important and often challenging relationship we have is with ourselves. Dealing with ourselves in a healthy, compassionate, and empowering way is essential creating genuine success and fulfillment in life, work, and relationships.
