The ability to overcome challenging situations in career or personal life starts with the ability to identify what the root of the issue is. Too often, we get caught in a whirlwind of doubt, second-guessing, panic or feeling stuck when we experience difficult situations. Being able to step back and gain perspective, while also challenging our own role, will allow for solutions to emerge and for change to happen at a personal level. In this workshop, Nicolle Browne will discuss how to find your right question so that you can get to possible solutions and experience personal growth faster.

Program created by Sylvie Deffayet Davrout - Leadership & Managerial Competencies Chair, EDHEC Business School.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn a technique to find the right question when dealing with challenging situations
  • Get closer to discovering the way forward in a situation you are currently wondering about
  • Experience the benefits of broadening perspective through reflection, leading to informed action plans

Cost: $25
