Mental patterns and routines allow us to take in, categorize and handle great amounts of information, but they also account for for most of our “stupid mistakes.” With awareness, we can manage the process and increase mental flexibility. After experiencing first-hand the flexibility and potential of the mind, participants learn how they can develop important mental skills such as fact-finding and problem-solving.
Do you need to be more persuasive? The techniques you will learn have been applied in situations including advertising, public speaking, customer service and even parenting. This is an action-packed and information-crammed program that’s fun to boot! You’ll learn, for example, that cows don’t give milk, you actually have to take it! Or at least you need to know some basic techniques for getting those cows to yield the precious fluid. We won’t be milking cows, but we will be learning techniques to increase the returns from our sales and influencing efforts.
Do you get sweaty palms and shaky knees when called upon to speak in front of a group? This brief course doesn’t promise to turn you into a great orator, but it will help you get the butterflies in your stomach to fly in formation when you stand in front of a group by having what is called an “enlarged conversation.” Come prepared to participate and have a lot of fun! Bring your butterflies!
