Cruise Update!!

Hi, Everyone!

I have a few updates I’d like to share about our upcoming cruise, :

1) The cruise is completely SOLD OUT — so for those of you who were considering joining us, I’m sorry to say your ship of opportunity has sailed for this year.

2) The “ChangeWorks Meet ‘n Greet Sailaway” gathering will be held at the “Endless Pool” bar area on the Lido Deck (Deck 9) Aft (back of the ship) at 4PM, which is the ship’s scheduled time of departure. If the mandatory lifeboat drill interferes with that time, just plan to join us at the bar immediately following the drill. Here’s a little map for you:

Endless Pool bar area, Deck 9 (Lido), Aft

3) Our Voyage Planner, Raul, has arranged for us all to eat dinner together — we have Late Seating, 8:15PM — but we won’t know which of the two main restaurants we’ve been assigned to until we board the ship.

4) Tuesday, January 11th and Friday, January 14th are our full days at sea. We would like to invite all of you to participate in a 60-90 minute educational program from 10:30AM to Noon. The programs will be held in the upper level of the Freedom Restaurant, Deck 10, Aft, Port side (that’s the left side of the ship as you’re facing forward.  We’ll commandeer a table or two for our meeting.  We can also scope out other places onboard for our meeting, but the restaurant is convenient and filled with yummy things. Here’s a little map of the area I’m talking about:

Freedom Restaurant, Upper Level, Deck 10, Aft, Port Side

5) Wednesday, January 12th we thought would be a great evening to enjoy the Sun King Steakhouse.  This is truly the finest food and service onboard and a wonderful reminder of how fabulous dining on a cruise ship was in the golden years of cruising. Reservations are required and there is a $30 surcharge per person which they will bill to your stateroom account.  We have asked them to set aside enough seats for our entire party at 8PM — but if you prefer to make your own plans for that evening, just let us know so they can make the seats available to other passengers.  The Sun King Steakhouse is definitely a spiffy, jacket-and-tie sort of place for the gentlemen — ladies, we never have to worry about how dazzling you’ll be!! The Sun King Restaurant is on Deck 10, Midship. Here’s a little snapshot:

6) If you’d like to have a new headshot taken for your marketing purposes, a cruise ship is a great place to have them taken. The ship has a large team of photographers constantly taking photos of you whether you want them or not – BUT you can also request a photographer to take headshots of you on the “formal” nights.  There is no charge for having the photos taken — and if you like one of them, the cost is quite reasonable compared to headshots taken in a photo studio at home.

7) Throughout the cruise, I’m open for private coaching sessions if any of you would like, so please feel free to set up a time for us to meet.

8) REMEMBER to complete your FunPass documents and make your airport-to-ship transfer arrangements.

That’s about it for now — please call us with any questions you may have!

DO THIS NOW: A Special ChangeGrid

Hi, Everyone!

I’ve prepared a special ChangeWorks group profile for all of you to take — the “2011 ChangeWorks Personal Success Plan.”  I think it will give you some very valuable insights into the year ahead — and what you may need to focus on to turn 2011 into the best year of your business so far.

“2011 ChangeWorks Personal Success Plan”

PLEASE fill it out immediately — I’d like to show the first batch of results on this Thursday’s Gold Team webinar — and for those of you going on our upcoming cruise, I’m also planning to take the ChangeGrids with me to debrief them on board.

Santa Completed a ChangeGrid!!!

Hi, Everyone!

Denny Stockdale, a ChangeWorks Professional in Minneapolis, has just completed a ChangeGrid with Santa Claus! You’d think Santa would be much further OutGrid with all that he has to accomplish, but the ChangeGrid shows he’s just taking it all in stride and going with the flow.  Here’s the result:

And if you want to know how Denny happens to know Santa, here’s a couple of pictures of Denny himself:

We’ll take a closer look at Santa’s ChangeGrid on Monday’s ChangeWorks Forum call —
