THE POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS


If we open newspaper and see, we have only negative news or very little positive news. Positive thinking is a mental and emotional attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects positive results. The healthy environment fosters positive relationship.
When I was focusing energy as most of us do what went wrong, were went wrong, by the time I got a book WHALE DONE!!!.... My latest reading the Power of Positive Relationships, By author Ken Blanchard.
The book was about killer whale. How the whale was trained by trainer in a positive approach. By saying redirect that energy towards in a positive approach. It takes a long time to build TRUST and FRIENDSHIP with each of whales and he has applied his experience of whale training in people’s life.
When a gruff business manager and family man, Wes Kingsley, visited SeaWorld, he marvelled at the ability of the trainers to lead huge killer whales in performing acrobatic leaps and dives. Later, talking to the chief trainer, he learned the trainers' techniques of building trust, accentuating the positive, and redirecting negative behaviour.
Whale Done! applies the principles behind training killer whales to building relationships with people. Instead of focusing on what employees, partners, friends, kids, etc. are doing wrong, the authors advocate for pointing out what people are doing right.


BUILD TRUST.
ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE IGNORE WHAT HE DID WRONG.

And important concepts to remember, THE MORE ATTENTION YOU PAY TO BEHAVIOR, THE MORE IT WILL ALSO

A simple but very powerful role to remember is, if you don’t want to encourage poor behaviour don’t spend lot of time on it. Instead we RECHANNEL the energy.
He is teaching ABCs performance-

A- ACTIVATOR
WHATEVER GETS PERFORMANCE GOING
B- BEHAVIOURTHE PERFORMANCE THAT OCCURS
C-CONSEQUENCE
YOUR RESPONSE TO THE PERFORMANCE
The redirection response describes the error or problem as soon as possible clearly and without plan.
Express your continuing trust and confidence in the person.
THE WHALEDONE! RESPONSE

*PRICE PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY
*BE SPECIFIC ABOUT WHAT THEY DID RIGHT OR ALMOST RIGHT
*SHARE YOUR POSITIVE FEELING ABOUT WHAT THEY DID
*ENCOURAGE THEM TO KEEP GOOD WORK

WHALE DONE! CATCHING PEOPLE DOING THING RIGHT.


What a great book on the power of positive relationship. It's just short and concise. We can apply the philosophy and take it into practice with not only in the workplace but in our daily life,
WHALE DONE! Only works when you’re sincere and honest. After reading this book I realized that combination and accentuating the positive could make major difference in work and family."A killer whale can be trained in positive approach why can’t people???"
