a workshop with Bill Diedrich

What’s your drama quotient? That is, how much mental/emotional time do you spend in drama compared to time spent focusing on results? If you are a leader, what do your staff members focus on?

Moving Beyond Blaming is a half day workshop designed to help participants make the shift from blaming to building, and from drama to results. You will also learn how to help others to make this shift.

Today, blaming has reached epic proportions. Our governments are paralyzed with it. This workshop shows the way up and out.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The five payoffs/pitfalls of blaming and why they seem so attractive
  • How to break the addiction of blaming  (a little brain chemistry here)
  • How to leave the cycle of blame (changing the reality you don’t want)
  • How to shift focus from drama to results  (creating a reality you do want)
  • How to set a tone in any group that fosters responsibility
  • How to turn complaints into constructive action
  • and more

This workshop is based on the book—Beyond Blaming: Unleashing Power and passion in people and organizations and other sources. You may purchase the book along with the workshop at a discount rate and have it shipped direct to you prior to the workshop—free shipping. Or, you may purchase the workshop by itself.
