What makes our clients who they are today? What determines their states, the beliefs they hold onto, and how they navigate life? Of the 11 million bits of information our brains process every second, we consciously can handle barely 50 bits each second. As such, the reason we think we do things has nothing or little to do with why we really did them.

In other words, to paraphrase the Nobel Prize Laureate Daniel Kahneman, we do things and we try to justify them. In other words, our clients will never really know why they do what they do, until they start operating differently.

What will you learn from this seminar?

  1. How to help your clients understand the concept of Non-Conformity, how it works, and how it applies to their everyday lives
  2. How to help your clients understand the concept of mental filters, how it works, and how it applies to their everyday lives
  3. How to help your clients enhance each of their 7 categories of life using New Norms Creation, and how to best implement this in their day-to-day lives

During this 2-hour seminar, we will guide you through an experiential learning process where you will learn what it takes to help your clients, and how to implement that in daily practice.
