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 should you 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?"
