Blink: How Do You Make Decisions
This class is an introductory look, based on the Malcolm Gladwell book Blink, into the mental processes that work rapidly and automatically from relatively little information. We will explore how the idea of “thin slicing” suggests that spontaneous decisions are often as good as—or even better than—carefully planned and considered ones and that intuitive judgment is developed by experience, training, and knowledge. Also, we will discuss how sometimes having too much information can interfere with the accuracy of a judgment.
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 – Round Nine, 10:50-11:50 am
Mastering the Art of Body Language
Nonverbal communication can not only help you be more effective in your business dealings, but it can also give you an added edge above competitors. Many times we think about what we are going to say, but often we do not consider how we say something, both with our tone and our body. During the interactive class, we will discover how the three parts of communication combine to give your audience the true message and how one can read and interpret the universal signs others unconsciously portray.
