Dear coaching community,

This month we would like to invite you to a highly interactive session with many hands-on activities for participants!

As professional coaches, it is important that we listen and respond beyond what is being said, beyond the words. Graphic note-taking is a powerful way to visually capture meaning, stimulate deeper access and build intimate dialogue between coach and coachee. Graphic note-taking can also be a useful tool to deepen understanding when working in non-native languages.

This session will be an opportunity to learn how to incorporate basic graphic note-taking techniques to enrich coaching conversations, while overcoming a limiting belief a few of us hold that we (or our clients) are not artists..


Speaker Profile:

Neil-Bearden

Meeting Topic:

Ludwig Wittgenstein once said, "The limits of my language are the limits of my world." Interpreted charitably – and perhaps poetically – his statement is correct: the words we use have a significant impact on how we see and experience things. What is more interesting, is that having a heightened awareness of the impact of our language on our experiences can bolster the influence of our language on our experiences. Once appreciated, this idea can help mitigate certain basic psychological biases we all share (for example, when judging other people). Prof. Bearden will discuss a way of communicating this insight to people in a way that makes it memorable and immediately actionable and will share with us a sticky meme to share with others.

Speaker Profile:

Neil Bearden is an Associate Professor of Decision Sciences at INSEAD. He holds a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to INSEAD, he held postdoctoral positions at the University of Arizona and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Duke University, where he did research in neuroeconomics.

His research is directed at understanding the psychology of decision making in business and economic settings. He has done work on how people search in dynamic environments, the psychology of beliefs and confidence, how memory influences decision making, how ideology influences the way people understand and represent the world, and other things. Currently, he is focusing on the influence of language on decision making.

Professor Bearden developed and runs the INSEAD Futures Exchange, an online prediction market. The market provides a means of aggregating the diverse beliefs of participants from around the world, with the objective of forecasting highly uncertain future events.

He has published in a number of top academic journals and in several edited books. His research has been covered by a number of media sources, from The Times of India to smartmoney.com.

He has won the INSEAD Outstanding MBA Teacher award several times. And he raps.
