    Course Description

    Plan of action

    Our minds are conditioned as we go through life. Our minds chunk information as a heuristic tool. We make assumptions continuously even though we may not be aware of it.

    This program helps people move from sizing up people objectively to strategically. People leave footprints and impressions of their values and likely behaviours. Learn this skill and you will have a trust network of value that can be relied upon. Learn how halo effects and similar thinking styles impact character assumptions.
