Resources Mentioned During Webinar:


Audience Comments:

  • “Being adaptable and letting your employees make mistakes while also being creative. I truly wish supervisors would be more open to our employees being creative.” — Brandon
  • “I learned about the concept of illusion of control that I had not heard before. Creating a working environment to encourage creativity, allow adaptability, and give autonomy is what I want to do as a leader.” — Cristy
  • “Great information that challenges how you look at managing people and situations. I like the simplistic examples and definitely makes a lot of sense. This is a good view on a subject that seems to cause a lot of conflict and division in departments and areas that struggle with looking at things from alternate perspectives. Great presentation.” — Jason
  • “I was able to connect a lot of the ideas back to what I have experienced. Especially letting something go too long before you pull it back and realize it is not working and there is a need to deconstruct and rework so that you can move forward.” — Judy
  • “The Rubrics cube analogy and cognitive biases. I am being groomed for a management position and will need to tackle other personnel that I work with on the same level. It will not be well received and this gives me a better perspective of how to develop the current staff. Thank you.” — Shirley
