What do Frodo Baggins, Luke Skywalker, and you have in common? A dark side. Our worst enemy often comes from within and must be confronted. Otherwise blind spots, weaknesses, and biases will keep us from reaching success.

How do we overcome this inner enemy in business? Though we don’t have magic rings or lightsabers, we can confront our natural biases to unleash the power of learning.

This discussion will reveal how a few deeply ingrained human tendencies can interfere with learning and how to overcome them. You will discover:

  • Ways to learn faster and more effectively so you can stay relevant, innovate, and thrive
  • How to unleash the power of learning throughout your organization (this is optional)
