When you size people up correctly, you have an opportunity to maximise their abilities. When you misfire and get it wrong, all of those opportunities will never be fully materialised. Learn how we speed read people unconsciously.

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.
