Some people must learn to recognize their worth and unlock their potential.
Steve used to read the newspaper obituaries every day, and Casey feels upset and underappreciated. In the guise of doing something positive for Serena, Carol suggests that they both contribute to a speaking gig, but she's not being as supportive as she seems at first. Sanjay is assertive, but his assertiveness has a negative impact on others, for example Tammy, whom he abruptly dismisses when she tries to tell him about a work problem. Carlos often feels crushed, dealing with Barney's outbursts and Casey feels pressured and harried by Carol. Each finds a way to overcome their feelings of low self worth. Dion counsels Carlos to make the reception area a place where people engage with him. Tammy learns the power of no when people impose on her. Steve is coached out of his negativity by Carol who sees his potential, and Marcus gives Casey an Aboriginal togetherness charm, which she deploys as a touchstone.

WARNING: These videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. They are contemporary, fast paced, short, character driven TV style comedies that take a new approach to reaching today's learners. By laughing, discussing, sharing outrage, reacting to the behaviors on screen, we can use these strong feelings and thoughts to develop a clearer shared view of how we want to behave, how we manage these situations, and how we want our team to behave and respond.
Psychological Rationale to Learning: The producer, psychologist Eve Ash, has created this specific comedy approach to engage learners who are a media saturated generation that increasingly report being uninspired, unchallenged and bored by traditional or outdated training videos. Eve wanted to create a series that people want to see more of, want to discuss and then refer to when similar occasions arise at work- but with shared insight.
