Are you an organizational leader?

Are you tired of the status quo?

Do you fight daily to stay afloat?

It's time to create peace in your WORK world!

The business world is full of stressors that lead to feeling burnt out, overworked and undervalued. Have you lost sight of your purpose? Learn how to course correct and take your career up a notch!

The second course in the CWB 2020 series is all about applying the science of behavior and learning to improve your work life.

The three books on which this course is based are

(1) Never Go With Your Gut

(2) The Paradox of Organizational Change

(3) THRIVE: The Facilitator’s Guide to Radically Inclusive Meetings

This course will teach information and skills related to:

  • Cognitive Biases
  • Behavioral Systems Analysis
  • Effective Collaboration
  • Simple Behavioral Improvements
  • Strategic Professional Planning
  • Related Ethical Obligations
  • Diagnostic Feedback

In this 9-week course, you will learn a set of skills related to improving your work life and earn 18 Type-2 "Learning" CEUs (12 general, 3 ethics, and 3 supervision). The skills are drawn from the work of Gleb Tsipursky (Never Go With Your Gut), Maria Malott (The Paradox of Organizational Change), and Mark Smutny (THRIVE), and you will learn how to systematically apply the lessons you learn to accomplish your professional goals, in the service of your values, on the path toward your dream career.

UPDATE: Until further notice, our courses and lessons as they were originally designed are on hold. We have pivoted to "Action Circles" during which we will be coming together to share our stories, learn from others, and collaborate to develop actionable solutions to the issues our world faces. Please visit our sister site to register for the weekly Zoom gatherings that start on 7/11/2020.
