STRENGTHS 2.0: HOW TO APPLY DESIGN THINKING TO INDIVIDUAL (AND TEAM) STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Stop it: innovate instead. This two part workshop will help your team:
Learn how to identify, understand, and accept unique strengths (and how they relate to weaknesses) in order to decide what to focus on, and what to delegate, team up on, or outsource
Understand how to use principles from “design thinking” to deliberately design lives, careers, and teams maximizing native strengths in order to achieve breakthrough performance.
By designing around individual weaknesses, create higher engagement and greater collaboration with your teams, and colleagues by leveraging the diverse strengths of the team.
TIME 2.0 COUNTERCLOCKWISE - HOW TO UNWIND COGNITIVE TIME AND LIVE FOREVER
Why is time accelerating? Why did summers as children seem so much longer than a summer as an adult? Is there any way to design our lives to slow, stop and reverse the acceleration of time? John explores the cognitive biases and errors that govern “experiential time” and explores ways to slow the ticking of the clock in service of the most precious commodity we have: time.
