– A Structural Approach to Mindset Change

Darwin’s statement, ‘The mind is a citadel which can not be taken by force,’ revealed both great insight and frustration and he carried it to the grave. No doubt he would have appreciated the irony when it was discovered that the same evolutionary principle of small change can also be applied to mindset change. We now know that one small adaptation (or rather experience) followed by another small experience can form the stepping-stones to profound mindset change – a revolution through evolution.
This highly interactive session will begin with a big picture overview of the extraordinary role social structures play in shaping our mindsets. You will deepen your understanding of how they shape nearly every aspect of your thinking and behavior. You will experience a range of new paradigm tools. These tools will help you to loosen the dominant structure’s grip on your own and other people’s mindsets. They will help you to create both the opportunity and desire for change one experience at a time.
Guest Facilitator – Dr Peter Rennie
