Cultivating Mental Agility:

In a fast-moving world full of rapid changes, we can't keep thinking the same old way. We have to challenge our ingrained thinking habits to become better and faster problem solvers and decision-makers, able to think strategically or tactically depending on what the situation calls for. Mental agility is what makes employees indispensable and helps organizations stay relevant in the marketplace. In this course, Dorie Clark explains how to cultivate the mental agility required for a great career: from building resilience and learning from the past, to creating an organizational culture that thrives in the face of change.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize the pitfalls that negatively impact a person’s mental agility.
  • Summarize the process of scenario pre-planning, or “pre-mortem.”
  • Recall the importance of a decision journal.
  • Explain the advantages obtained by becoming mentally agile.
  • Identify the strategy mentally agile people use to avoid data paralysis.
