Leading with the “Right” Mind
During the last few decades, individuals naturally competent in logical and linear thinking were in high demand and found great success. However, the computational thinking of the Information Age is quickly becoming secondary to the inventive and empathic thinking of the Conceptual Age. As this emerging age affects our economy and society more and more, leaders must adapt to remain relevant and survive this transformation in preferred thinking. Based upon Dan Pink’s book, A Whole New Mind, this course identifies the differences between left- and right-brained thinking. Participants explore the six essential aptitudes (Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play, and Meaning) that Pink highlights as critical for personal and professional success in the Conceptual Age. The course provides participants with tools, techniques, and resources necessary for the development of these six high concept and high touch aptitudes. Though these are all fundamental human relational abilities, the course identifies clear methods for improving and mastering each of these skills so that leaders may adapt appropriately to the demands of the Conceptual Age.
Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the differences between left- and right-brained thinking
- Understand the causes of the waning Information Age and oncoming Conceptual Age
- Describe the importance of high concept and high touch abilities in the Conceptual Age
- Identify and manifest the six essential aptitudes of right-brained thinking (Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play, and Meaning)
- Apply tools and techniques for developing the six aptitudes
- Utilize methods for improving and mastering the six aptitudes
