** New Presentation **

In order for each one of us to have a full awareness of what is going on in life we must develop a full sense of responsibility .

One of the difficult, continually emerging questions of life is: What am I really responsible for---and what am I not responsible for? The primary way to keep answering and resolving this on-going life-long question is to have a full and clear understanding of what responsibility is and how to put responsibility into our choices and then into our actions.

The Presentation

  • That there are only two ways each one of us may appear in social reality. Which one should you choose?
  • Why the choices we make must be consistent with the actions we take.
  • About action. And discover why "actions speak louder than words."
  • How to journey into the three dimensions of responsibility.
  • To determine the differences between "Don't just stand there, do something!!" and "Don't just do something, stand there!!!"
  • To remember forever the five (5) crucial elements of personal responsibility.
  • Why it is necessary to know what you are feeling when you are called upon to respond.
  • That response-ability is "situational".
  • Positive ways to prioritize personal responsibilities.
  • That we really come to know who we are and what we can do in life through our abilities to be responsible.

From the Audience

"Thank you for coming down to University Park for our retreat. I have heard many positive comments regarding your presentation, "Making Responsibility Happen . . . with Happiness in Mind." The 50 participants spoke in particular about the perspective you bring to life and they were very pleased that you were able to share your thoughts and insights. I am sorry that you had to leave before I could thank you personally. Best wishes for the rest of the year and feel free to stop by when you are visiting State College."

"Dear Jules: Thank you so much for coming to Victor Central School, Victor, N.Y. on Friday February 15, 2008 to give a lively and fascinating presentation on 'The Three Dimensions of Responsibility' to our professional Food Service and Teacher Aide Staff. Your 8:00 A.M. opening thoughts created an atmosphere of intense interest and the specific ideas in the outline of the presentation which you handed out to our 90 participants were so helpful to the work that these important members of the staff do as they each respond to changing and varying situations in their work lives.
