Principles of Objectivity


Have you ever over-reacted to a situation? Have you ever taken something personally that really wasn't personal? Have you ever read "tone" in an e-mail where there really was none? We all do this. It is simply human nature...

The Question: How can we see things clearly, make sound judgments, and be effective leaders?

The Answer: To be effective leaders today requires us to increase our objectivity - to develop mental models and meaning structures that help us handle the complex issues we face each day.

In this interactive presentation, Elizabeth Thornton will explore with conference attendees The Principles of Objectivity, which can provide leaders with the knowledge, tools, and techniques to increase objectivity and overall effectiveness in all aspects of life.
