Accentuate the positive, Eliminate the Negative

Bali-base International Consulting Firm Tirian Provides 'Ultimate Tourism' Training to Bali Hotel Association.

(2/9/2009) Tirian, the Bali-based international learning and development company presented a without-charge seminar to members of the Bali Hotel Association (BHA) on how to develop the proper mindset to operate a business in difficult times.

Conducted by Tirian's Managing Director, Andrew Grant, the seminar's theme was "Ultimate Optimism Developing Mental Resilience". The seminar provided practical examples on how to create a mindset in to remain realistic and honest to the situation, while staying optimistic. This "Ultimate Optimism" seminar has been presented by Tirian all over the world and emphasizes the unrealized opportunities remaining to be tapped even in trying times. Explained Grant: "As the rest of the world starts to learn how to mentally deal with a crisis Indonesians, who are not new to challenging times, have learnt a great skill of developing mental resilience - better than most."

Grant also pointed out: "Its always been a challenge for leaders and sale teams in the hospitality industry to lead in a crisis. You can't pretend all is well and be insincere but you also can't walk around pessimistic. Balancing the realism of the situation and keeping staff moral high is tough."

The Tirian program boosts positive thoughts through effective strategies. Research has shown that optimistic people are productive in all areas of their lives, consistently staying mentally and physically healthier through using positive, reinforcing, empowering language that shapes their own behaviors and influences those around them. When individuals are optimistic they work with more focus, achieve more, encourage those around them, see problems as opportunities, recover faster from setbacks, find themselves in less conflict, and feel more enthusiastic in the home and work environments. The session also includes several case studies of world champion sports achievers and recovered cancer patients who have been able to use this cognitive psychology to achieve high results.

The program for Bali hoteliers was held at The Westin in Nusa Dua .
