We are living in an era of extreme uncertainty. Systems that provide for our basic physiological, safety, and financial needs are breaking down. Economic challenges, fierce competition, and a global pandemic have heightened the need to respond quickly, leading to some hasty and ill-conceived decisions with devastating long-term consequences.
We simply cannot afford to rely solely on the old school of trial and error or hindsight. There is very little room for silly mistakes. What we need is better foresight. Letting our instincts blindly guide us can lead to some bad outcomes.
We have to seek out methods to accelerate our learning—reducing the time to insights and converting insights into effective outcomes. To achieve this, we must learn to minimize the gap between our intentions and our behaviors by cultivating counter-instinctive habits. The good news is that these are skills that can be mastered with a disciplined approach of reflecting on our assumptions, beliefs, conditioning, and drives.
This interactive CEO Climb Event by Krishna Pendyala offers an alternative to the inefficient trial and error method. He deconstructs one of life’s most overlooked and vital skills: the ability to exercise conscious judgment and make values-based choices at work, at home and everywhere in between.
Read any newspaper’s business section to find an example of a once top executive dealing with the consequences of poor judgment. The surprising part is that they may not have a clue how they ended up there. Every single day we have a mind-boggling number of opportunities to demonstrate our power to choose. However, in these moments we are not always exercising our judgment effectively or consciously.
Making wise choices, no matter how small, and exercising good judgment is the foundation for a productive and fulfilled life. After all, while the big decisions in life are important, it’s the small choices that impact the quality of our daily life. Krishna brings to light the subconscious choices we make every day that ultimately determine our overall level of success and happiness.
This Climb Event helps attendees practice how to approach each moment of choice in a state of calm alertness, clear focus, and measured performance. Krishna highlights the need for space to reflect and reach the highest level of decision-making where you can integrate instinct, intellect, insight and intuition to operate in “the zone.”
In this Climb Event, you will learn how to:
- Become more aware of your beliefs and conditioned habits
- Better manage their impulsivity
- Identify the invisible drivers of influence
Krishna offers a simple path to exercising judgment in real-time decision-making. He goes beyond the mechanical decision-making process, embracing the more intangible human element to greatly enrich the quality and sustainability of one’s choices.
Value to CEOs and Leaders:
- The Climb Event will provide value to attendees at three levels — personal, professional and organizational —taking them on a fun journey of self-discovery from surviving to thriving.
- Highlight blind-spots, helping them regain their power to make choices in the moment while minimizing the negative impact of snap judgment.
- Cultivate simple habits to suspend judgment, monitor their instincts and cultivate counter-instinctive behavior
