4 Ways How Self Help Seminars Can Help You

Oct 13, 2007
Self Improvement seminars are a common phenomenon today. Corporate houses usually organize such seminars and lectures to help motivate their employees at least once or twice in a year. There are still others who take the initiative to enroll in self improvement work shops without being told to do so. When you want to improve your performance levels, there is no harm that a self help seminar could to you.

Usually every body loves to see an improvement in the self, and hence the popularity of such seminars is on the rise. It is human nature to constantly be in search of ways and methods to improve self efficiency. And who doesn't know that at times a college degree is not all that can help you in the work place? Confidence and a code of conduct go a long way into making you more successful as a worker.

Whatever the genre is that you want to get help with; you can no doubt find the right class or workshop/seminar for it. Be it improving your swimming skills or improving your photography skills, you could get help with it. Here is what you can expect to find in a self help seminar, whatever the department or division:

1. Contracting with the self:
You may wish to recognize some of the issues that get in the way of your success, and rightly so. You need to ask your self what it is that is the cause of the problem. For instance if you are regularly late to the office, maybe your late night TV goes for a little too much time, and you now know what you need to work on. Try and use the reward and punishment incentive system to get out of this cycle. Tell yourself that you will be rewarded by going to work on time if you go to bed on time. On the other hand, look at the punishment of staying up too late watching TV. If you keep these dialogues up with your self in your mind, you will definitely achieve success.

2. Dialogues with other people:
There is more room for misunderstanding when in dialogue with another person than there is in contracting with the self. You need to keep in mind that the dialogue must be fair, the terms need to be crystal clear, the deal should promise a positive outcome, you need to have systematic processes of improvement involved that you can work towards, and you need the person to participate. Putting it all down on paper is not a bad idea ; that way both people involved can see eye to eye on what needs to be achieved.

3. Shaping:
Shaping is the term given to achieving your goals in a systematic order, one at a time. You cannot go to step ten before you've even dealt with step three you know.

4. Remind yourself regularly.
It is easy to forget all about a self help program with the distractions that the world may throw towards you. Setting up reminders such as notes on the refrigerator or on the work bench is a great idea that could help you stay on track
