27 Page -2- Concept worked on : Attitud e Control Loi s Grou t The wa y I put the concep t int o practic e was listening. At th e end of a long and confusing work day, I was approached by an "obnoxiousl y funny" salesman. Afte r listening to his firs t few jokes,my firs t impressio n was that I didn't car e wha t he was selling; I didn't lik e hi s personality, so I didn't want his products. Realizin g why I wasn't intereste d in the products, I though t about th e Attitud e control workshop. I really listene d to what he was saying abou t his product s an d to my surprise, he was very knowledgabl e in his field. I learned a great dea l fro m hi m and probably wil l b e doing busines s wit h hi s company. ****************************************************************************************** Concept worked on : Attitud e Control Smitt y Hughe s The wa y I put the concep t int o practic e was to become more aware of incidents in which I was misunderstood du e to intonation. A n effort was made to improve eye contact while I was speaking an d be sensitive to unusual responses. O n several occasions, during th e week I stopped an d asked th e othe r part y i f he understood, an d then aske d them to repeat. I scored mysel f an d the misunderstoo d concept s totalle d 4 and the understood concept s totalle d one. As a result of my experience, I recommend usin g eye contact durin g conversation s becaus e it ca n help to eliminate misunderstandings. ******************************************************************************** Concept worked on : Attitud e Control Donn a Golde n I was able to put into use my "attitud e control " almos t a s soon as I arrived bac k in the offic e afte r ou r las t session. A customer, with whom I had spent a great dea l of time th e previou s day, cam e in and announced tha t "h e s t i ll though t tha t I had charged hi m too muc h money and he wanted to talk wit h Pat Eastman as she had signed th e policy". ' I smothered th e inne r urg e to tell hi m to "stuff i t ", put on a smile, mustered up my self-confidence and asked him, in a controlled ton e of voice, to sit down and we went ove r i t again. He lef t happ y and satisfied an d I felt goo d that I hadn't passed-the-buck and let someone els e take over. As a result of my experience, I recommend using attitud e contro l because it leaves everyone with a much better feeling abou t situation s whic h coul d be uncomfortable other - wise. *******************************************************************************************

28 Page -3- Concept I worked on: Patienc e Contro l Stev e High t At hom e we hav e an area o f the house tha t is usually totall y an d completel y astrue. Afte r reminiscin g wit h m y da d about the sadness of never bein g abl e to fin d thing s whe n you need them, I half-decide d to straighten thing s out. However, instead of following through wit h th e task I quietly pu t the project away. M y mind was s t i l l ponderin g thi s proble m but I was working wit h th e chainsaw cuttin g wood when my han d passe d ove r the chainsaw and I almost cut my finge r off. I realize no w tha t i t was because I dropped m y attentio n leve l tha t thi s accident occurred.

29 November 30, 1982 Concept Worke d on : Organizin g Day's Schedul e Janic e M. Hagget t While i n my job it is very difficul t to have a set time to do certain things, I did, eac h morning, writ e dow n eac h an d every thin g I expected to get accomplished tha t particula r day. I tried to put at least thre e item s on the lis t tha t possibly migh t no t ge t done, but I foun d tha t often I did have tim e to do these las t thre e item s whereas i f I had not put them on m y l i s t, I would hav e foun d a n excuse to do them on another day. I f at the end of my day, I foun d I s t i l l ha d things on my lis t tha t had not bee n accomplished, I simply put them at the head of the lis t th e nex t day. Becaus e I often procrastinate on things I don't particularl y enjoy doing, I found tha t by listing the m in order of importance, tha t these jobs got done quicker tha n the y normall y would of. A s a result of my experience, I recommend using an organizational char t because you will accomplis h more in one day than you ever imagine d pos - sible and will fee l grea t abou t i t. ********************************** Concept Worke d on : Wor k Schedul e Glen n Stilling s Each da y a work schedul e was made up for each hou r i n the day. Becaus e of this schedule, I foun d tha t I was at school eac h da y at the hou r specifie d an d made myself visibl e to teachers and students for complaints, etc. I maintained persona l contac t with individua l staff member s regarding daily meetings, conferences, student and youth concerns, etc. Wa s able to have conference s with my secretary, checkin g studen t attendance, etc. A s a resul t of m y experience, I recommend usin g structura l organizatio n fo r at least a limit twic e eac h day becaus e i t allows others th e opportunity to contact you at a given tim e if the nee d arises. ************************************************************************************************** Concept Worke d on : Tim e Management Marsh a Richard s With th e bus y holida y schedule, I found makin g a list of all th e thing s that needed to be done very helpful. I crossed each tas k off as they were accomplishe d an d it made the week a lot less hecti c and more enjoyable. I also fee l I made a conscientious effort to spend mor e time with neglected areas and less in unimportant activities. A t work I had many little thing s that had been put o f for a while to be done. I also mad e a list of these and found tha t they ar e al l caugh t u p and out of the way. Thi s will giv e me more time for impor - tant tasks. ****************************************************************************************** Concept Worke d on : Wor k Schedule Heid i Lyman I foun d tha t by making my work schedul e out before startin g m y outside chores, that thi s worked ou t much better fo r me. I would mak e a list includin g milkin g th e cow s and doing barn work, then I would organiz e my office dutie s to include phon e calls, letters, listings. If I had any left at the end of the time, I would lis t the m at the to p of the shee t fo r the next day.
