System 3 Thinking for a Disconnected Age

Virtual PD Events

How do you help your clients make complex decisions in their personal and professional lives?

What if they must choose the least worst option?

How do you know in the moment whether any decision will be wise or foolish?

Event Information

In the ‘pandemic era’ we need new thinking more than new marketing. Now, more than ever, we need to make wise choices for ourselves, our communities, our businesses, and our government sectors. And we need coaches skilled in the practice of coaching for wisdom who can help leaders think in more systemic and more compassionate ways. Our planetary survival may very well depend on it!

Peter J Webb has developed an evidence-based practice of coaching for wisdom over the past 15 years with multiple publications. He presents some powerful skills, distilled from the research, for helping clients choose wisely. In particular, the six competencies of System 3 Thinking and the WISE framework represent elegant ways to move clients along a path toward wisdom.

This presentation makes the case for an evidence-based practice of coaching for wisdom, and then invites participants to engage with the frameworks and skills needed to deliberately foster wise decision making in their clients through:

  1. Creating Awareness – Integrate research findings from the psychology of wisdom to help your clients gain insight and awareness into their decision making processes.
  2. Designing Actions – Create ongoing learning opportunities through the application of  decision making frameworks in personal and business decision making.
  3. Planning and Goal Setting – Develop competency in decision making through setting goals which progressively increase the complexity of decision scenarios.
  4. Managing Progress and Accountability – Encourage your clients to take personal responsibility for the consequences of their choices in business and in life.
