Attitude adjustment

Happy new year! I hope you had a great break and are ready for another big year!

Lots of writers and real world managers I know say that you can’t teach attitude. I do think it can be learned, however. The reason, need, desire or willingness just has to be there (sounds like a circular argument really).

You know you can spot it in seconds by someone’s look, walk or stance. It’s crazy then to be swayed by their CV (someone else may have written) or networks (what others say) that this person can be trained, taught or talked into a different disposition. And if they could – what does that say? We all need some attitude but it’s got to be appropriate for the situation.
