What if we understood better how the ways we perceive affect the ways we interact? Would we make better decisions? Achieve peaceful solutions?
John Furey is the founder and CEO of MindTime, a company built around a theory of thinking styles that focuses on our attitude toward time. Some of us look back on time and are convinced by facts -- certainties. Others focus on the present and zoom in on probabilities. The rest look toward the future and are most lit up by possibilities. When people with different styles interact without understanding these mixed priorities, bad things can ensue.
Which are you? You can try their "GPS for the Mind" before the call (this version is a Facebook app). If you're feeling adventuresome, add yourself to the MindTime Map for our community that John has created, John has created, here.
With John, let's discuss:
- What is this model and how does it apply to self knowledge? group dynamics? ecosystem shifts?
- How are organizations using this meta-knowledge to improve their teams and processes?
- What insights has the MindTime model yielded? Where is this research heading?
