Leaders: Break-Free From These 5 Thinking Traps You Don’t Even Know You Have


The way the world operates today is testing your abilities as a leader.

Within your organization, there’s more unknown and less certainty. Your team is expected to do more with less, achieve higher performance goals, and adapt quickly to change.

As the leader, you are expected to have more awareness of the constant shift of factors inside and outside your organization, the well-being of your team AND the maintenance of your own individual growth. On top of all of this, still do your job, and do it really well. With so much being thrown at you day to day, how do you trust what to do next?

After working with leaders from all types of organizations for over 30 years, we’ve seen firsthand the thinking habits and natural behaviors that keep leaders stuck, spinning and frustrated. Through our experience and research on adult development theory, complexity, failure experiences and neuroscience, we’ve guided leaders as they break free from these thinking traps within themselves that they didn’t even know existed, and create major shifts that influence how they work, lead and live.

Inspired by teacher, researcher and author, Jennifer Garvey Berger’s new book “Unlocking Leadership Mindtraps: How to Thrive in Complexity”, our Thinking Toolbox: Leader Series dives into the five “pernicious and pervasive” (as described by Garvey Berger) ways in which leaders get stuck, the brain science behind these habits, and the tools you can implement that will help you change your thoughts, behaviors and ultimately, your impact as a leader.

Join us for an interactive workshop series over your lunch hour. Just like with our Thinking Toolbox workshops, you’ll receive a literal tool that you can take with you and implement into your and your team’s daily practice. These tools are great for meeting kickoffs or ice breaker activities.

A brain-powered lunch will be served by Chef Justin, our in-house culinary master.


Attend an individual workshop, or join us for all 5.
