      The Prediction Trap: Dealing with Uncertainty, Turbulence, and the Future

      We live in uncertain times: "experts" are frequently surprised by events that a few years ago would have been easily predicted. In HR, vocations that didn’t exist five years ago are now in big demand.

      Skills that were essential may now be unimportant. And the way people work is constantly evolving. How can you plan for this uncertain future? How do you maximize the likelihood of creating the workplace your organization needs?

      While no one can truly predict the future, this program provides you with insights and practical techniques to anticipate what may happen and how to prepare for it. It provides understanding into how the human brain makes decisions and assumptions about the past, the present and the future.

      It looks at how people filter information, and how that biases their views about the future. And it provides you with skills to communicate and facilitate valuable discussions about how to deal with these uncertain times.

      Why you should Attend:
      When you think about it, virtually every decision is about the future, from big strategic decisions, to "how do I convey this news to an employee?" While experience is one of the most valuable things we have, assuming that what happened in the past will continue to work can lead to disaster, as well as missing out on the potential of the future.

      You need this program if:
      The time frame in your job is longer than a week
      Your industry is experiencing change
      Your suppliers or customers are changing the way they work
      Your workforce skills needs are shifting
      Your intuition tells you something is happening, but you struggle to have an impact
      You need to avoid big mistakes in planning for the future
      You want to take advantage of change, rather than being hit by it

      Areas Covered in the Session:
      How People Process Information and make Decisions
      How and why the Human Brain relies so much on Experience
      When Experience can Lead you Astray
      How to Discover events that might have small Probability but Large Impact
      Specific Tools that allow Anticipation, Planning, and Quicker Course Correction

      Who Will Benefit:
      HR Professionals
      Team Leaders
      Business Owners
      Anyone making Future Oriented Decisions
