One of the principal components of the program is the systematic strengthening of one's self esteem. Once this is achieved, not only is individual work performance improved but equally important the entire work environment including supervisors, peers and clients is also improved.

Other topics highlighted in the workshop include: fitness and exercise, nutrition, stress management, business etiquette, active listening, etc.

"This country has got to come to grips with the fact that in a global economy, happiness is linked to productivity and the United States must increase its productivity and retention of people in their jobs if it is to continue to be a leader in world markets," she concluded.
The College is also seeking to partner with employers by offering workshops on Self Improvement and testing the effect of the workshops on employees as well as the important ripple effect on their clients. The College is prepared to work aggressively with other institutions and companies during the research stages of this study. of its employees.
New York College is looking to initiate both regional and nationwide programs with key corporations that have the foresight to explore the promising linkage between the Science of Self Improvement and employee productivity.

The book, in addition to covering new ground that will provide unique algorithms for people to monitor their personal growth, will also introduce a new technology in the field of textbooks.
This is an exciting time for the College. It is expanding in many directions and believes it has a distinct advantage over others in this area because it has close ties to proprietary technologies, corporations and distinguished visiting professors, in addition to its faculty.
