  • The Desperate Need for Open Thinking

    Date: October 03, 2019

    Cost: $95.00 - $115.00

    Location: Four Seasons Hotel

    Overview:

    Society is losing its grip on what matters most: the ability to think. Though the root cause is by no means malicious, we have begun to reward speed over quality, distractedness over focus, action over reflection, and the negative effects suffered in people’s personal and professional lives are beginning to add up. This predicament ought to be a wake-up call for all of us. A return to balance between three components of productive thought is needed; Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, and Applied Thinking. In other words, how can we ensure people are practicing Open Thinking? “Dream, decide, do, repeat” is the mantra best-selling author Dan Pontefract wants us to consider.

    Guest speaker :   Dan Pontefract

    Dan is the best-selling author of three books: OPEN TO THINK: Slow Down, Think Creatively, and Make Better Decisions (2018), THE PURPOSE EFFECT: Building Meaning in Yourself, Your Role and Your Organization (2016) and FLAT ARMY: Creating a Connected and Engaged Organization (2013).

In parallel to these actions he drove a philosophical and cultural shift in the way TELUS views and experiences learning called “Pervasive Learning” the shift to a social, informal and formal learning model. He further championed the use and deployment of collaborative technologies to complement both the leadership and learning frameworks. Between 2008 and 2018, employee engagement at TELUS soared from 53% to nearly 90%.
