A Pragmatic Deep Dive on Uncovering Blind Spots - a Multi-Meetup Professional & Personal Development Workshop

Tristan Harris' TEDTalk "Anti-Blind: How do you see what you can't see?" - https://youtu.be/TQPD2Qv4Pls

If we're honest with ourselves and our teams/companies, we realize there are always certain factors we've yet to identify, comprehend and fully take into consideration to achieve the successes and milestones that we long for.

With respect to our relationships, our health, investments, companies, governments, our planet...ANY entity can eventually fall apart due to just ONE factor that was repeatedly overlooked, often many. On the flip side, people and brands can become wildly successful and increasingly resilient when they become aware of their "special sauce," and start putting it to use daily. These instances involve our blind spots.

Join us on Tuesday as we delve into this subject together! We'll have a communal screening of Tristan Harris' TEDTalk, discuss the most noteworthy parts of it, explore different types of blind spots, be led through exercises to uncover some, engage in breakout circles, and harvest the gems of our discussions as one large circle to end. Buffet dinner social directly after our event!

Note: No proselytizing in any shape or form will be accepted in this and other workshops we hold. Where there are differences in opinion, please respect.

Location: WeWork Penn Station, 315 West 36th Street, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10018
