GIVE A DAMN Presentation - Changing a Mindset

Download to read offline

Our own actions, individually and collectively, determine the world in which we live. The mindset of today’s society has deteriorated because we don’t GIVE A DAMN about each other (except those we really care about). Everything seems to be internally driven and we justify our actions and behaviors, whether right or wrong. As a society, we have become more self-centered, ego and excuse driven, selfish, entitled, violent and more complacent than ever before.

Responsibility, accountability and doing the right thing seem more of an exception rather than the rule. And society is killing itself. The solution? To GIVE A DAMN for each other……… every second, minute, hour and day. This presentation and book identifies the problems with today’s society, and how a GIVE A DAMN behavioral philosophy can fix it. It will drive sales and growth of a business.
