To Get Others On Their Own Success Routes

Situational Checklist

Physically print this page and check off the conditions that apply to the person (or people) you want to immediately help succeed in their personal or professional situations (or just mentally check them off right here).


Regularly miss time commitments.


Arrive late / leave early (without explicit approval to do so).


Take above-average sick or personal time.


Speak poorly in business and professional situations.


Demonstrate limited command of complex language (American English) skills.


Have a poor attitude towards work (or tasks they perform).


Multi-task without accurately focusing on any one thing.


Take frequent breaks during the day away from their primary assignments.


Congregate in closed groups at every opportunity.


Dress or present themselves inappropriately for specific situations.


Roll their eyes or otherwise show disapproval when asked to do more.


Use poor social skills when in public forums.


Make excuses for personal responsibility when things go wrong.

If you checked-off more than one or two items as they pertain to those you want to help, get this book for them immediately!

What YOU cant (or won't) tell them, I will!

Let's work together to change attitudes and behaviors through:

  • Individual copies of "Why You Talk So White?" for each person.
  • Facilitated workshops (training sessions) for an entire
    class, group, or organization.
  • Keynote speeches at your conferences, family reunions, meetings, or professional development programs.

Invest in those for whom you care the most.
