4 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY LEARNING MOTIVATION: It’s story-telling time. This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

5 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Everybody got mad about this because it was Somebody’s job. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody asked Anybody. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

6 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Communication is one of the most important words in any life or business. If you are an effective communicator, you and your career will move forward and most likely thrive. If you are unable to communicate effectively, like our four friends in the story, the road to success and accomplishment will become blocked with numerous obstacles, many of which can become to difficult to overcome.

7 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY One of the biggest mistakes we make each day of our lives is to underestimate the power of communication. We simply take for granted that communication really is a tool. It’s a tool that can help “make” or help “break” us. Our daily communication can dramatically propel us to new levels of success or even failure. So let’s take a closer look at how we can use that tool to help us achieve our goals and dreams.

8 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Human Relations A study of human problems arising from organizational and interpersonal relations; a program designed to develop better interpersonal and inter-group adjustments (Webster’s)

9 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY The best way to understand others and interact well with them is to understand yourself. Good relationships are built on mutual respect and understanding.

10 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Human Relations Basics Personal security. When we feel secure, we are happy, calm, confident, cooperative, and trusting. When we feel insecure, we become worried, anxious, overwhelmed, angry, suspicious, uncooperative, and sometimes hostile or withdrawn.

11 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Human Relations Basics Social interaction required. When we feel secure, we like to interact with others. We can help people feel secure around us by being respectful, trustworthy, and honest.

12 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Human Relations Basics Handling difficult situations. Some people create conflict wherever they go; they are rude, insensitive, or so full of themselves that being considerate doesn’t enter their minds. Try to remember that this person at this particular time feels insecure or he/she wouldn’t be acting this way.

13 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Handling the Ups and Downs Respond instead of reacting. When you “react,” you are no longer in control. Take deep breaths and tell yourself that you don’t have to take a negative situation or behavior personally.

14 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Handling the Ups and Downs Believe in yourself. Trust your judgment, uphold your values, stick to what you believe is right. Develop a strong sense of self-worth.

15 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Handling the Ups and Downs Talk less, listen more. The same letters that spell listen, also spell silent! Remember that old saying that we were given two ears and one mouth for a reason.

16 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Handling the Ups and Downs Be attentive. Pay attention to what the client’s wants and needs are. If one is too aggressive, ask your supervisor for advice. At all costs, remain calm and practice active listening skills.

17 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Handling the Ups and Downs Take your temperature. If you notice chronic negative personal behaviors once you are in a job, pay careful attention to what is happening. An important part of being in a service profession is taking care of yourself first and resolving personal conflicts so you can properly take care of your clients.

18 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY Golden Rules of Human Relations Communicate from your heart; problem-solve from your head. A smile is worth a million times more than a sneer. And it causes less wrinkles.

19 MILADY’S Standard Instructor Support Slides COSMETOLOGY It is easy to make an enemy; it is harder to keep a friend. And you have to be a friend to have a friend. Ask for help instead of just reacting. Watch what happens. Show you care by listening. Try to understand the opposite point of view. Tell people they are great, even though they don’t always act great.
