Notice vs. Imagine

Getting the unsaid said is the key to innovation, collaboration, and growth.
Notice vs Imagine
People often operate and make decisions as if their opinions are fact rather than exploring the real truth. This leads to employees assuming they know the needs of their clients or colleagues, rather than taking the time to determine if these assumptions are correct. These issues become even more exacerbated when the people involved have different agendas, goals, needs, and backgrounds.

Prevent misunderstandings and assumptions

This session includes Steven Gaffney’s legendary application of the “Notice vs. Imagine” technique. Based on more than a decade of research, the failure to distinguish what is “noticed” (the facts of the situation) from what is “imagined” (opinions, thoughts, evaluations, and conclusions) is often one of the most harmful things for an organization’s bottom line.

Improve relationships, build trust, and make work and life easier

In this seminar, participants will be challenged to open up and engage in discussions and exercises in order to better their personal and workplace environments. Participants will learn to distinguish between what are facts and what are opinions so they can act only on the truths of a situation rather than their perceptions. In order to ensure participants will retain what they have learned, each participant will choose a personal case study to work on throughout the session. They will learn to distinguish the facts of the situation from their opinions of the situation. By the end of the session participants will know exactly how to solve their case study issue and how to prevent similar issues in the future.
