Attendees will learn how 'what you see is really what you get' in life, our perceptions take center stage to form our performance. 

It has been said that 'Perception IS Reality.' We use our perceptions as a way to navigate through our world. Our perceptions form the foundation of what we call reality. But the reality is that many of our perceptions which we take for granted are in actuality illusions. When it comes to our relationships with people, our perceptions play an even more significant role. Our perceptions about others and ourselves can often create illusions, which hinder our success and our ability to perform at the highest level of achievement. How we perceive our co-workers, customers, teammates, and all the people around us has a profound impact on their morale, motivation, and performance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Find out why our performance is actually a self-fulfilling prophecy.
  • Understand how we unconsciously put people in a 'box'.
  • Explore how people perform according to the perceptions we have of them.
  • Learn to view conflict as an opportunity rather than an obstacle.
  • Re-energize morale and workplace culture through untapped diversity.
