Additional Testimonials

Here are the strategies Barry selects from when customizing a Filling the Glass session for an organization. Which strategies are included and to what extent depends upon the needs of the organization and the length of the session.

Never Underestimate the Power of a Little Incentive:
Concentrate on the What’s-In-It-For-Them and the What’s-In-It-For-You will usually take care of itself. (Something we all realize but forget far too frequently.)

Make the Skeleton Dance:
Great communicators don’t hide potential negatives and they certainly don’t stumble over them. Great communicators use potential negatives as selling points. They even brag about them.

Be Your Own Guru:
After all, Stephen Covey can’t be with you when all those thousands of little decisions that lead toward your goals or away from your goals have to be made.

Build the Human Relationship:
This segment can include any number of verbal and non-verbal communication techniques for vastly increasing your “relatability” and helping you succeed with individuals of all types.

Change the Scale:
Perspective is everything. If you’re 35 or 45 or 55 and filled with regret over the chances you’ve let slip by, imagine how you’re going to feel when you’re 85. And what you would give for the years of opportunity you have now.

Sure you’re anxious to reach your long-term goals. But the more enjoyable you can make the journey towards those goals, the more likely you and those around you are to be able to sustain the effort it takes to get there.

Fill the Glass:
Never settle for half empty or half full. Fill the glass. Ideally until your cup runneth over.

The strategies of Filling the Glass can help anyone:

• Radically improve their performance—without sacrificing their integrity;
• Take control of their own accomplishments and their own destiny;
• Motivate themselves and those around them;
• Come to terms with potential negatives;
• Gain perspective and match their life to their values;
• Relate to others with increased empathy;
• Overcome adversity—capturing the value in every failure as well as every success.
