Avoiding the Pitfalls of Assumptions

Avoiding the Pitfalls of Assumptions

As We Think, So We Lead

Three things about making assumptions:

#1: Assumptions can take our minds towards the negative without need or cause.

#2” Assumptions can decrease our ability to relate well to others. 

#3: Assumptions keep us all from moving forward.

Consider using RED model of Critical Thinking

“Keep reminding yourself: I get what I think about, whether I want it or not.” 

Wayne Dyer

What you and I “get” when we seek to be critical thinkers:

1.      We understand ourselves better.

2.      We are more likely to be open to changing our minds and our opinions in light of new information.

3.      We concentrate on the most important parts of a body of information.

About the Podcast

The Art of Leadership
Experienced leader, Niña Ellison, focuses on those seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest skills a leader will ever learn.
The Art of Leadership with Niña Ellison focuses on the soft skills of leadership, their value and the power of their influence. As a leader, if you are interested in moving from success to significance then balancing both hard and soft skills is essential! These seemingly opposing skills complement rather than compete with each other. Hard skills are demonstrated through technical expertise that results in clearly measured goals being reached. They are vital to the success of any initiative or program. On the other hand, soft skills emphasize the transformation of people more than the transaction of tasks. They highlight behavioral changes and making a difference in people’s lives. This podcast is for leaders who are seeking a fresh perspective into some of the hardest soft skills a leader will ever learn. You can connect with Nina at https://www.healthyleadership.online
