To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of his best-selling training program, Massey releases an updated version of “What You Are Is Where You Were When.” Dr. Morris Massey says, "It's not true that there's nothing in the 'middle of the road' but yellow stripes and dead armadillos. Neutral ground is the best place for resolving conflicts. If you appreciate both sides, it's much easier to resolve differences."

Enterprise Media announced today the release of a new program from best selling speaker and training authority Morris Massey, PhD.

In discussing why he was updating his 1976 classic program, Morris Massey said, "Can a 30 year old program still have "legs" to make a difference? I decided ‘Yes’ when I heard some executives who viewed the original in 1976 were still quoting me. So an update to tackle today's turbulent workplace seemed relevant."

“We were able to convince Morris Massey to come out of retirement to update his classic presentation because we thought his message was particularly relevant in today’s polarized environment,” said Executive Producer, Stewart Clifford. "We face an incredibly diverse range of values in our daily lives, so it seems particularly useful to maintain some sense of sanity by developing an understanding of ourselves and others--and why we're 'different' but really all relatively 'normal.' Life works a heck of a lot better if we can lower our 'fear/anger/frustration factor' towards others,” said Morris Massey.

This new program takes a careful look at Generations X, Y, and Z. Morris Massey said that, "We're all trapped in a values ‘age cage,’ but a better way to deal with our frustrations is only 60 minutes away. Just watch 'What You Are Is Where You Were When...AGAIN!' and life will work better."

"Morris thought that it was particularly important to address the new generational and value-driven issues that are occurring in today's workplace,” said Producer, Dini Coffin. "We're plagued by an epidemic of 'hardening of the categories,' adamant closed-minded positionality is poisoning our relationships at home, work, internationally...everywhere. But they're 'tried and true' techniques that can lessen organizational divisions, cultural wars, generational conflicts and all the jockeying about being 'right.' This new program is targeted to rattle mental cages and expand consciousness about oneself and others. It's a wake up call for dealing with reality," said Dr. Massey.

Since the early 1970's, Morris Massey has been working with and delivering programs about human behavior, with a particular focus on values and generational differences. He is known for his dynamic and energetic “tell-it-like-it-is” presentation style. His undergraduate and M.B.A. degrees are from the University of Texas--Austin, and his PhD. in business is from Louisiana State University. During the late 1960's through the 1970's, as an Associate Dean and Professor of Marketing, at the University of Colorado--Boulder, he received four awards for teaching excellence.

Dr. Massey was honored with the W.M. McFeely Award presented by the International Management Council for "significant contribution to the field of management and human relations." During the 1980s and 90s he was the #1 ranked resource for Young President’s Organization International. In “What Works At Work” (Lakewood Publications, 1988) he was cited as one of the 27 most influential workplace experts of the time. His dynamic presentation style has impacted thousands of audiences around the globe and across the board from business, health care, government, education and community groups. His videotape series are acclaimed as classics and have become benchmarks of excellence for the entire industry. With 4 million-plus frequent flyer miles accumulated by 1995, he retired from the consulting/speaking circuit and now lives with his wife in Sedona, Arizona.

“What You Are Is Where You Were When… Again!” is available from Enterprise Media on VHS and DVD for $895. This training program includes an extensive print leader’s guide, and a CD-ROM with a PowerPoint presentation, and student handouts.
