ABOUT THE SEMINAR
Effective teamwork, adaptability, and courage are all critical to the success of any professional in today's business climate. A shortcoming in any one of the three areas could cause failure, and possibly even extinction! In the animal world, coyotes have not only survived, they have thrived in the face of an all-out war to exterminate them - because they've learned adaptability techniques, teamwork skills, and they exhibit amazing courage. In this high-energy session, award-winning speaker Joel Weldon shows you how to thrive by understanding the positive attributes of the coyote. With adaptability, effective teamwork, and courage being the main themes, you'll learn several techniques and tools for turning average performance into excellence, no matter what your career or profession is.
ABOUT THE TRAINER
Since 1917, there's been a concerted effort to eliminate this animal and it has thrived. The University of Colorado, when they heard about this, contacted the nation's leading expert on animal behavior, Dr. Marc Bekoff, and after three years of study, Dr. Bekoff, found the reason that the coyote thrives and most animals and can't even survive. He came up with three words that formed the basis of what we're going to do at this seminar for you today. Those three words are adaptability-adaptability to change. Teamwork-the ability to harness the resources or others, and courage. Awesome courage to do whatever it's going to take. Go over, under, around, or through obstacles to achieve your objectives. So look at your agenda sheet. We've got to get outside the box of limiting our thinking of what we can do and get Coyote Power to think creatively and innovatively. So, how do you do it? Don't think ordinary. Raise your hands if you have a goal? Well, that's just about everybody. Hands down. How many have the goal written down; raise your hand. Well, that's about half of you. How many have the goal written down and with you now and can show it to me as I come by? One, two, three people. I guess I'd be four. That was the idea I heard on the record by Earl Nightingale in 1976, that was the key to accomplishing what I did and overcoming the terrible situation I was in to write a goal down and to carry it with you and to see it everyday. Let me give you an illustration. Stay in your seats and raise up one hand. Reach up as high as you can. Stay in your seat-reach a little higher. Uh, hands down. Did you feel what you just did? I said raise your hand up and reach as high as you can. Then I said, reach a little higher and you went up that extra half-inch, quarter inch, three quarters of an inch-that's where you goal should be. We talked about the coyote and the Native Americans. The Native American chief up on the reservations. College educated, takes over the Chieftain of the tribe; doesn't know the old ways of his ancestors. Knows the modern ways. The tribe asked him what's it going to be like this winter. Being somewhat on the conservative side he says to the tribe, "I think it's going to be a cold winter we better gather some firewood," but being a well educated man, he decides he better check. So a couple of days later he calls up the National Weather Bureau and gets a meteorologist and says, "Can you give me the long range forecast for the Indian reservation?" The guy says, "Yes, I think it's going to be a pretty cold winter." So he goes back to the tribe and he says, "Listen, I think we really better collect some firewood because it could be a little colder than
