We’ve all heard Henry Ford’s wise observation, “Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.” That kind of sage thinking played a vital role in his company that would soon become a world leader in auto manufacturing. Mr. Ford understood that mindsets are a lot like what happens with accumulating interest … the savvy people earn it, the not-so-savvy pay it.

Our mindsets play a vital role in our ability to see and solve problems, or flounder in disbelief and denial. In this module, we explore the price of negativity and the benefits of being positive.

This is not an esoteric course, but rather digs into the practical and tactical aspects of producing results while guarding against counterproductive mindsets and channeling negative energy into a productive tool for growth.
