50 #4 THINK WIN-WIN Win-Win is not….. Win-Lose An attitude toward life that says the pie of success is only so big, and if you get a big piece there is less for meIs competitiveWinning the game, being the best, having it your wayFull of prideUsing other people, emotionally or physically, for your own selfish purposesTrying to get ahead at the expense of othersSpreading rumors about someone else (as if putting someone else down builds you up)Insisting on getting your way without concerning yourself with the feelings of othersBecoming jealous and envious when something good happens to someone close to your

54 #4 THINK WIN-WINGet into groups and talk about things that are a WIN-WIN situation in your school?
56 HeroFor me, a hero does not have to be larger than life. A hero is someone personal to each person. To be a hero, all that is required is love, honor, devotion, and sincerity, without compromise, for another fellow human being. Everyone has the potential within to become a hero, either their own or someone else's. To be a hero, according to the word's Greek origins, means a person protects or serves.
57 Hero-cont.My personal, modern-day heroes are all the teachers who do it for the kids, not the money. You can tell the difference without even knowing that teacher personally. You can see it in the way her eyes sparkle whenever she is talking to kids or about kids; you can hear the reverence in her voice when she talks about their possibilities; you can witness it modeled in her daily life - her kids are her number one priority - both her own children and those she teaches.
58 Hero-cont.I have the great fortune to work with two such a heroes. They have given me the strength, courage, and desire to continue my education in order to help the advancement of others. I'm not studying to be a teacher but to be a counselor. They have helped me to see the light. I realize now I don't have to go into private practice but could be much more beneficial in the school system. Heroes come in all forms; my heroes have come in the form of mentors.
59 Role ModelEveryone needs some one to look up to, to admire, to have respect for.Get into groups of 5-6.List 5 to 8 characteristics that you would use to define a positive role model.Not physical.But behaviors, attitudes, life-styles, personality traits that are noteworthy.Share with the group.
60 #4 THINK WIN-WIN Think of someone that is a role model for you. Draw things that represent that person.Share
61 #5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD Hand over eyes – then to earsYOU HAVE TWO EARS AND ONE MOUTH FOR A REASON!!!!!
62 #5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD One person leave the room.We will clap loud when they get close, soft when they are far away.

64 #5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD GENUINE LISTENING SKILLSFirst, listen with your eyes, heart, and ears7% of communication is contained in our words53% comes from body language40% how we say words, or the tone and feeling reflected in our voicePLEASE HEAR WHAT I AM NOT SAYING!Second, stand in their shoesTry to see the world as they see itTry to feel as they feelThird, practice mirroringThink like a mirrorMirrors don’t judge or give advice they just reflectThey don’t mimicRepeat back in your own words what the other person is saying and feeling
65 #5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD The Wright Family Story
66 #5 SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD Sometime this week, ask your Mom or Dad, “How’s it going?” Open up your ears and practice genuine listening. You’ll be surprised by what you learn.If you’re a talker, take a break and spend you day listening. Only talk when you have to.The next time you find yourself wanting to bury your feelings deep inside you, don’t do it. Instead, express them in a responsible way.
67 Personality Inventory Lion, Otter, Golden Retriever, BeaverIn each box, circle the words that best describe your personality.Double the number of words you circle and write down that number on the line in that box.
69 Lion Lions or leaders There many accomplishments inspire awe. In the military they are the Schwarzkopf's, Patton's, generalsPresident of the company or think they are the president.Take charge sometimes pushy and overbearing.

71 Otter Fun-loving type. Always looking for a party to happen. Entertainers, enthusiastic motivators.Those who know people who know people who know people.They know everybody and bring so much fun into our life and world.Even though you may have scored the highest on this area, you may still have some of another personality type. High in two and low in the other two.
72 Otter’s cont.Otters will forget to bring things that they promised to bring.Can be dangerous and foolish risk takers.Otters are so motivational than people actually believe them. (Trust Me)Very verbal.Under pressure, tend to attack verbally.Otters love to play practical jokes.
73 Golden RetrieverGolden Retrievers are among the most sensitive people on earth.“I won’t hurt you.” “I won’t say mean things to you.”They avoid confrontation.Enjoy routine.Value loyalty.Golden Retrievers are the warm, relational, nurturing ones.They feel deeply and will care enough to buy appropriate card.Can be easily hurt.
74 Golden Retriever- cont. Loyal Golden Retriever can become stubborn in refusing to let go of hurts or grief.Gives and likes to receive warm smiles and glances, loyal to the end.Because they are loyal and do not like change, they can take a month to do something spontaneous.Golden Retrievers can feel the hurts of others so deeply.They bring concerns home with them, including the cares of colleagues and schoolmates.Sometimes carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.
75 BeaverThese people enjoy not only writing instruction manuals, but reading those manuals.They value accuracy, getting things straight, and doing things right.Beavers make good health and safety inspectors, quality controllers, bankers, and accountants.They like quality, not junk.Beavers are serious, they have little tolerance for those who mess up.When your with them, you feel like being extra careful.
76 Beaver- cont. Beavers are real careful with people close to them.

77 WE USE OUR STRENGTHS AND BLEND OUR DIFFERENCES It is very normal for Golden retrievers to have some Beaver in them.It is very normal for a Lion and an Otter to marry a Golden Retriever or Beaver combination.Lions and Golden retrievers sometimes have trouble getting along.For Otters to do well in school, it has to be fun.Teachers, who are usually Beavers, don’t understand Otters as well.Each of us has these personality strengths in combinations which are variable and adjustable. They need to be brought into balance.
78 Strengths and Differences- cont. If you have too much of the Lion quality, then try to be gentle and soft with people.The Otter needs to be more of a follow- through person.Golden Retrievers need to practice confronting.Beavers need to realize that nothing is ever as bad as it seems or as good as it appears.Letting go of the need to have everything exactly right is important for a Beaver to do
79 Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Golden RuleDo unto others as you would have them do unto you.Treat others as THEY want to be treated.
