Rosemarie Perla presents to the Volunteer Administrators of Southwestern PA (VASP) June 13, 2012
“The Power of Gratitude: Practicing Positive Communication and Raising Optimism in the Work Place.”
Rosemarie Perla and Tim Hayes present: Gratitude, Attitude and Magnitude: Celebrating 25 years of Bill Few Associates – February, June and October 2012, February 2013
People instinctively realize that assuming a positive attitude yields greater results. The challenge comes in fostering and sustaining positivity, since human nature is wired in the opposite direction. Negativity remains the genetic default, in other words. Rosemarie Perla and Tim Hayes have developed a novel approach toward addressing the issue of increasing positivity in the workplace – starting with attention on individual strengths, and building into a more team and organizational application.
This tailored interactive group development session focuses on three core ideas essential to fostering a healthy personal and professional life, blending instruction, interaction, and exercises to bring the concepts into practical application. The three core ideas are:
GRATITUDE: Builds on current social science research that offers practical exercises for using positive communication in team and client interactions. ATTITUDE: Builds on core leadership practices and business communication success through trust and frank communications with each other and clients. MAGNITUDE: Extends this grateful attitude outward to a more effective communication style geared to heightening leadership awareness and ability to persuade others. When team members understand and embrace these ideas, positivity flows more freely through your organization, opening doors to increased productivity and enhanced profitability. When people like where they are, what they’re doing, and the people working alongside them, good things happen for your business.

Creative Planning Retreat for Professionals, April 8-9, 2011, St. Emma’s Monastery, Greensburg, PA
Retreat facilitated by Rosemarie Perla, Executive Coach and Consultant
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
—Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple Computers
Purpose of retreat: To give the business professional time out to consider vision and values related to their work life; to design how they want to continue contributing in their careers and in their communities.
