Free Teleclass: Get Smarter About Thinking Clearly

Thornton, ElizabethGet Smarter About Thinking Clearly
Tuesday, February 17, 2015
1:00-1:30pm EST


Have you ever over-reacted to a situation? Do you sometimes take things personally that really are not meant that way? Have you ever misinterpreted the tone in an email and then responded with “tone?” How often do you judge other people unfairly?

We all do this. It is the nature of the mind, but sometimes this inherent subjectivity can get in our way and create difficult consequences. To be happy, effective, and successful today requires greater objectivity: seeing and accepting things as they are without projecting our mental models, fears, background and experiences and responding thoughtfully, deliberately and effectively to the opportunities and challenges of our lives.

In this free 30-minute teleclass, you will learn:

  • How to be more objective and make better decisions under pressure
  • How to identify and transform limiting mental models
  • How to lead with objectivity

For women, objectivity is particularly important because many of us continue to be influenced by societal mental models and underlying assumptions that define for us what it means to be a successful woman. Many of these mental models are limiting and unproductive, and they impact the way we evaluate and respond to our daily challenges. Gaining objectivity allows women to adopt new ways of thinking and acting that help us deal with the complex issues we face each day, and empowers us to find our true purpose and achieve our personal and professional goals.

Join the free teleclass on Tuesday, February 17th, at 1:00 pm EST.
