The only things in life we can truly control are our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. If we can manage those, we can achieve our goals and gain success in life). However, in order to have this control we first need to understand the basics of how our emotions and thoughts work. This webinar will present a simple yet powerful model of how our minds work based on research in cognitive science and behavioral economics. It will also discuss how our minds are wired to make thinking errors that can keep us from reaching our goals and offer practical suggestions for avoiding these errors.
1. Viewers will learn about how humans evolved the two systems of thinking — the autopilot system and the intentional system — and how these systems impact our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
2. Viewers will learn about how these two systems of thinking lead to thinking errors (also known as cognitive biases or cognitive distortions) which can keep us from reaching our goals.
3. Viewers will learn practical strategies for noticing and avoiding common thinking errors.
