Change Your Habitude, Change Your Life Presented by Rita Schiano from Live a Flourishing Life

(How Your Attitude Affects Your Personal and Professional Life)

From ancient philosophers to modern day inspirational thinkers, the message has been the same: Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, and your actions become your habits.


At the core of how we perceive ourselves, how we present ourselves, are our HABITUDES© — habitual ways of thinking and acting that affect our attitudes towards our life. And while our attitudes influence our behavior, it’s our habits — those recurrent, often unconscious patterns of behavior — that direct our actions.


That’s why we need to look back at those early lessons, those habits we developed, and determine if they serve us or if they are habits that do not serve us. And then we must ask ourselves, “Is this the kind of person I want to be?”

In this program, resilience strategist and coach Rita Schiano will explain how powerful your attitude really is and the effect it can have on your well-being and on those around you. Participants will be learn practical strategies that will help them understand and re-shape their attitude.

About Rita: Rita Schiano is a resilience strategist and coach, speaker, and founder of Live A Flourishing Life. Organizations use Rita to help staff build resilient leadership skills, manage stress, and improve morale. As a personal strategic coach, Rita helps clients focus specifically on their most important goals, interests, challenges, and needs.
