Warren Hatter recently wrote an excellent blog on the Brexit referendum through the behavioural lens. He shows us a copy of the referendum voting card and suggests that cognitive bias is what may have won the result. “remain carries a higher cognitive load to process than does leave, as it is less idiomatic. Depart would be a better pair with Remain. This matters because, when faced with a higher cognitive load, we process information less well.”
So, if the UK could decide due to a higher cognitive load for something as important as a referendum, what outcome do we now have based on our own cognitive reactions to the situation?
Tharoor Associates has created a one-day workshop to explore our emotional outcome of Brexit and how best we can cope with it to manage other people and ourselves.
This one-day workshop will provide a road map to adapt and connect to key people and situations in your work life using the psychological springboard provided by the work of Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychologist.
The fruity metaphor is a fun and simple way to understand your natural preferences and to learn about your natural strengths, weaknesses and how to improve your working relationships (internal and external). It is a tool for discovery, growth and self-development.
The key aim of the course is to give you a road map to adapt and connect to the changes around us due to BREXIT
Background to Jung’s Personality Types – Jung’s theory suggests that we all have different psychological preferences which determine how we behave, interact with others and make sense of situations around us. This session will give you a basic knowledge of the teachings of Carl Jung that will be helpful to clarify the philosophy behind this course
The Fruity Approach to Your Personality – This session will help you learn about their fruity concoction and natural ways of dealing with life. It will help you understand why you excel in certain areas of life but struggle with others, and why you can handle some people and not others. It will also teach you how to adapt to characteristics of the less dominant fruits in your smoothie and how to deal with each scenario in the most effective way.
Your Fruity Relationship Map – For you to gain the most out of your Human Smoothie you will need to look at yourselves and the key relationships within the workplace, this may include internal and external relationships dependent upon the role. This is done by creating a relationship map and improvement opportunities via a development plan.
