Subject: "Collaborative Thinking"
  Randy ParkThinking is challenging enough when we do it on our own - but when we add other people, be they bosses, co-workers, or spouses - well, you better have a good idea of how to proceed. Randy Park is a professional speaker and author who studies how people think and make decisions, both individually and collectively.
In this entertaining, thought provoking, interactive session you will see why:
the people we learn the most from - if we let ourselves - are the people we like the least
....how to get other people to understand your viewpoint (including your spouse)
....a practical technique for pulling a group of people together so they're headed in the same direction
....why "tolerating" diversity sells it short - it should be championed
....as well as identifying aspects of your own thinking that are effective and sometimes not so effective.
You'll leave with action steps to help you make better decisions with fewer mistakes at work and at home. You will also leave with one of Randy's books or DVDs. Bring your partner, guests and your friends to this special wrap up to the ISA Hamilton Section's 2007/2008 season.
