    Holistic Training Solutions! 

    Training solutions only respond to a small percentage of performance problems. Performance analysis and a broader performance consulting methodology can shape more holistic solutions that genuinely enable and improve performance. This will also help the HR,L&D and OD function build credibility, by aligning their work and helping them have the right conversations, solve the right problems and deliver real impact to their stakeholders and organisations. #NPx.

    Self-doubt? 

    Self-doubt can be crippling for many of us. It can make us feel powerless and weak, and it’s often worse just when we need to be strong and assertive. When the pressure is on, anxiety can reinforce our negative beliefs. We convince ourselves we won’t succeed, so we’re less likely to do so. If we can access our own personal power, we can find the strength and confidence to overcome these obstacles and begin to take control of our lives. #NPx.

    Evaluate Arguments. 

    The art of evaluating arguments entails analyzing information objectively and accurately, questioning the quality of supporting evidence, and understanding how emotion influences the situation. Common barriers include confirmation bias, or allowing emotions-yours or others-to get in the way of objective evaluation. People may quickly come to a conclusion simply to avoid conflict. Being able to remain objective and sort through the validity of different positions helps people draw more accurate conclusions.

    Recognise Assumptions. 

    This is the ability to separate fact from opinion. It is deceptively easy to listen to a comment or presentation and assume the information presented is true even though no evidence was given to back it up. Noticing and questioning assumptions helps to reveal information gaps or unfounded logic. Taking it a step further, when we examine assumptions through the eyes of different people (e.g., the viewpoint of different stakeholders), the end result is a richer perspective on a topic.

    Draw Conclusions. 

    People who possess this skill are able to bring diverse information together to arrive at conclusions that logically follow from the available evidence, and they do not inappropriately generalize beyond the evidence. Furthermore, they will change their position when the evidence warrants doing so. They are often characterized as having “good judgment” because they typically arrive at a quality decision.
