Originally from Thomaston, Georgia, Chris Daniel relocated to Washington, D.C. in June 2001 to pursue a career with the federal government. While there, he learned corporate training and consulting, working with Congress, the public sector and a few nonprofit agencies. After almost a decade, he had the itch to leave and begin a private consulting practice.
While running his practice, Regroup Consulting, Daniel also wrote and published his debut book, Consult in Jeans (Tate 2014). Regroup has been in business for 5 years today, and Chris travels the country speaking and training leaders on how to get the best out of their people and ideas!
Daniel has since published 2 eBooks, “The Leadership Jumpstart Plan” and “Make Money Consulting THIS WEEKEND”. Below is an excerpt from his decut book “Consult In Jeans”
Excerpt from Debut Book “Consult In Jeans”
Chapter 6: We believe that the more knowledge and skills we give a person, the more valuable (marketable) he will be. I hate to burst your bubble, but that’s what on-the-job training is for. Every company has a learning curve, training/probation period…for new employees to learn the necessary skills for the job. Very little emphasis has been placed on the development of the proper attitudes and habits. These are not taught in college, nor are they inherent in many companies. What’s funny about this is one simple notion: When managers have to remove someone from a position, it’s normally because of poor attitudes and habits (i.e. misconduct, poor attendance, repeat tardiness, inconsistent performance, etc.). All of those are symptoms of undeveloped attitudes and habits.
In fact, attitude affects everything. If you are ever unsatisfied with the results you are getting, in a relationship, challenge, problem or even a conversation, look first at changing your attitude. Attitude is the Great Multiplier. If you want to multiply positive results, choose positive attitudes.
If you’re not correcting your mistakes [in this area] daily, you’re one of three things:
- Not as successful as you think;
- Lying to yourself; or
- Not making enough mistakes
