How good are you when you are under pressure, feel offended/ unheard, or notice that a conversation is taking a turn for the worse?In this 2 hour lab you'll find out. You will practice skills for staying calm, listening through to the heart of what matters, and skillfully handling difficult (annoying!) people and situations.
Power Questions: Practice Lab!
Students will leave with a skill that people will immediately notice at work and home. Nothing redirects people's thinking better than a well-phrased question.
Productivity Lab: Master your Bandwidth
In this lab you will learn easy 'hacks' (shortcuts) to work smarter, faster, and better: how to write emails that get read, trick your brain into getting things done, and streamline repetitive tasks both at work and at home. We'll cover both the science and the psychology of getting things accomplished.
Rapid Problem Solving
In this lab students will explore fun, innovative tools and techniques for tackling problems big and small. What if you could become an even better problem solver? You will leave with a new set of skills that you can immediately apply at work and at home.
Seeing Lab: People-reading
Students will learn how to detect and read facial micro-expressions, small contractions of the facial muscles that last only tenths of a second, but give a window into what someone is feeling.
