Mental Short Cuts May Slow You Down

Mental short cuts go by many different names. They happen when you react or make a decision without considering all the information you have available. Instead, you might consider only the most recently-received information. What happens when you react without enough information is that your biases have much more influence over your decisions. Learn to…

Stereotypes Can Limit Your View

Today’s society is rampant with stereotypes. Stereotypes are based on the idea that individuals within a group must hold similar characteristics. Virtually everyone has them, but most people are ashamed to admit it, which makes them difficult to explore and resolve. Stereotypes can create biases depending on how your stereotypes fit in with the people…

Recognize Your Own Bias

Bias is part of being human and we’re all guilty of it, but it’s important to be aware of your own bias in order to take more thoughtful action and develop stronger and healthier relationships. Learn the types of bias we use to support and defend our own thoughts, feelings, and actions and how we…

Try Changing the Environment

Staying stuck in the same routine discourages your brain from generating thoughts that are different than the thoughts you had yesterday. Break from the norm and take yourself into different environments to generate novel ideas and look at your tasks and problems with fresh eyes. This course is a simple and effective way to break…

A Trick to Viral Marketing

Influencers are some of today’s most, well, influential marketing tools available. They lead masses of engaged followers all over the world by creating content that offers industry insights, product information and reviews, and advice on virtually any topic you could think of. This course will show you how influencers can be utilized to advance your…

Constraints Are a Good Thing

The response to constraints of any kind is generally negative. They’re seen as barriers to your success and abilities and are often used as excuses for failure. To an innovator, however, constraints are just more opportunities for creative thinking, problem-solving, and unconventional application of resources. When you’re dealing with limitations, you’re forced to think outside…

Your Top-Down and Bottom-Up Brain

Our brains are so infinitely complex, we’re not even aware of most of the processes that are constantly occurring, but one of those processes could be contributing to unconscious bias, along with a mess of other bad habits. Fortunately, there’s a way to address and correct this automatic response system. In this course, you’ll learn…

You Can Understand Your Motivations

Your motivations drive you to choose to take action, but they can also drive you to take shortcuts that lead to less satisfying results. When you understand what your motivations are, you can recognize the cognitive biases you might employ because of that motivation. Recognizing those biases will help you analyze options more completely to…

How Do People Perceive You?

How others perceive you may not match how you see yourself because your own cognitive biases can alter your self-perception. The way others see you will affect how they behave toward you and how you think and feel about yourself, which will in turn affect you behave and therefore how others perceive you. This course…

Beware of Your Assumptions

Making assumptions is a completely natural behavior, but it can lead to beliefs and even actions that we would not have come to if we had all the information, and that practice can cause much undue anxiety and stress. Use critical thinking skills to acknowledge and resist assumptions to quiet your biases and save yourself…

How to Ask More Powerful Questions

Working towards a goal usually involves addressing a series of questions. To simplify the process, we tend to take one idea at a time and treat it as a “will or won’t” situation. This course teaches a broader perspective. Asking the right questions as you work towards your goal can create new possibilities and opportunities…

The Power of Borrowing Brilliance

Borrowing Brilliance is a tactic you might have used in everyday life without even knowing it, but this method of problem-solving can lead to blockbuster innovations. When you’re brainstorming, widen your considerations to other fields and the techniques they use to achieve the type of outcome you’re looking for. In this way, you’ll invite novelty…

Make Sure All Voices Are Heard

When members of your team feel ignored or neglected, they can develop low confidence that affects their performance. In essence, you’re lowering their value by not appreciating their value. Increase the value and performance of your team by ensuring that every member knows he or she is appreciated. This course will teach you to facilitate…

A Better Way to Pitch Your Ideas

Approaching a boss, investor, or another resource with a half-cocked idea is a quick way to get rejected. The key to gaining the approval of teams, leaders, and others is to present them with value. Once you get them on board, you can get the help you need to accomplish your goals while improving your…

Why Diverse Teams Win

Diversity isn’t just progress for the sake of progress. Having a team made up of various ethnicities, different genders, and a range of ages actually increases your creativity and productivity. That’s because people who come from various backgrounds with various levels of experience broaden your perspective. This course will show you the error in cultural…

Focus on the Problem, Not the Solution

Solving problems is the key to innovation and advancement, but far too often, we get in our own way by assuming the solution before we’ve really analyzed the problem. Getting stuck on the assumed solution will slow you down, creating more steps that have to be taken to achieve the desired result. This quick and…

Show Respect

Respect is a behavior that conveys recognition, appreciation, and even admiration. When leaders show respect, they recognize people are different from one another, and appreciate these differences and contributions. After completing this course, you will be better able to build an inclusion workplace that respects and values all contributors.  Adopt a mindset that all people…

Present a Professional Appearance

While dress codes have shifted dramatically over the years, there’s still an expectation that leaders have a pleasant appearance. This doesn’t mean good looks or expensive clothing. It means looking alert, neat, and representative of your company’s brand. After completing this course, you will be able to make a more confident and powerful personal presence…

Show Humility

Everyone makes mistakes, and no one is perfect. Leaders who are “big” enough to stand by this fact are much more favorably received than those who try to appear better than others. It is uncivil to place yourself on a pedestal or make others feel less-than. After completing this course, you will be able to…

Recognize Loneliness at Work

Feeling lonely, disengaged, or “different” prevents people from contributing their best efforts. It is a human need to feel part of something, and leaders must recognize the signs of loneliness at work. And more than just recognize, to understand the source of it and take steps, even small ones, to instill a sense of belonging…
