Power of Perception

This course gives you ten straightforward thinking tools for sharpening your perception and focusing your thoughts in a more comprehensive, effective, and efficient way. It will enable you to have a broad and inclusive viewpoint. The tools create a framework for defining a situation. That framework will improve your ability to consider consequences before you take action.

More than ever, our business and personal lives are more complicated, fast-paced, and full of action. We often confuse action with accomplishment and frequently jump to action without enough thought. We love to take action (just do it!) and see what happens----if it is good, we keep going; if bad, we stop and clean up the mess we have created. This strategy is better than doing nothing at all; however, it is inefficient, and the pain or mistake rate is extremely high. These tools will help you prescreen the potential for mess and enable you to be more efficient and effective in your decision making.

POP™is to describe it as "software for the mind." Once you have been trained and the ‘software’ is loaded into your mind, you can simply close your eyes and click on one of the POP™ "icons" to review the tools you've learned and to use them in any situation.
