Topic:  Our assumptions regarding ourselves, others and situations hold us back in our work and personal lives. If we can remain open to possibilities, we are able to change our professional and personal lives significantly for the positive.

Learning Objectives:  
  • Examine thinking patterns around the way we see ourselves, other people and situations
  • Identify our personal, environmental and relationship strengths and create a plan to use them in our work for greater productivity and success
  • Identify assumptions we make about others and practice awareness to prevent ourselves from moving up the ladder of inference for improved work interactions
  • Explore the Pike Syndrome and the assumptions we make about work situations and follow the steps to successful risk taking to make a plan to take action to improve our work performance
  • Create and practice a self-talk exercise to keep us focused on looking for opportunities rather than problems, strengths more than weaknesses and what can be done instead of what can’t − applying it to our professional as well as our personal lives
