Novus Webinar - The Thinking Paradox

  • Wed 16 Sep 10:00 am – 11:00 am
    • Jeff Heasman CELTA, LL.B, LL.M, Jeff Heasman Training & Consultancy

We overthink or we don't think enough. When we try to focus, we can't. When we want to relax, our mind is too focused. When we need to make a quick decision, we can't and we hold back. When we need to take time to make a decision, we don't and we act impulsively. When are the best decisions made and how can we learn to think or "unthink" when we need to? How can we learn to trust our instincts more? This webinar will explore these fundamental questions, which have even more relevance in the difficult and uncertain times we currently find ourselves in.
