The Assumptive Dive explores the sources of options and beliefs which silently shape your thinking and behaviour.
Topics covered: Opinion-forming, decision-making, judgment, leadership
Expressing opinions is something we do everyday. In our time of fake-news, half-truths, and 'alternative facts' it is becoming essential for genuine conversation to be aware, as perhaps never before, about how we form opinions, hold them, and express them.
This understanding is fundamental to the quality of our conversations and to forming personal and professional relationships. This engaging workout explores the sources of opinions and beliefs which silently shape your thinking and behaviour about key matters in human affairs.
The exploration will take place over two months in 4 three-hour sessions at fortnightly intervals and will be delivered through a combination of facilitator presentations, group analyses and participant dialogues.
It will suit people wishing to elevate their thinking and judgment. It will be beneficial to those finding it difficult to create/manage meaningful dialogues and build trust, and having to deal with issues of toxic and rigid organisational cultures.
